Is the World-Mind having a game with its hapless creatures, or playing tricks on itself, or expressing its own irrationality and idiocy? My first Buddhist teacher jocularly suggested that the Creator must have been in a state of complete inebriation when He made this universe. But, of course, we have no right to demand that our small finite minds should have the secret revealed to them. They are incapable. Yet intellectual curiosity and spiritual aspiration for truth keep pushing us to seek answers for apparently unanswerable questions.
