Default Is T5 meant to be a game?

At the onset, please understand this is not a "T5 is unplayable" or "T5 is not a game" thread. Rather, I'm wondering if the main intention of T5 really is to serve as what the average gamer would think of as a "core rule book" for a gaming system.

Its size and breadth of comprehension suggests the possible alternative that it is more of a philosophical encyclopedia, laying out Marc's system (and the encoded beliefs and preferences) in a gaming format. Almost like a Traveller (though not necessarly OTU) Simarillion.

Welcome!
