In terms of the game theory, we might say the universe is
so constituted as to maximize play. The best games are not those in which
all goes smoothly and steadily toward a certain conclusion, but those in
which the outcome is always in doubt. Similarly, the geometry of life is
designed to keep us at the point of maximum tension between certainty and
uncertainty, order and chaos. Every important call is a close one. We

any other way.

What was once impossible now summons us to dismantle the walls between
ourselves and our sisters and brothers, to dissolve the distinctions
between flesh and spirit, to transcend the present limits of time and
matter, to find, at last, not wealth or power but the ecstasy (so long
forgotten) of commonplace, unconditional being. For the atom's soul is
nothing but energy. Spirit blazes in the dullest of clay. The life of
every woman or man-the heart of it-is pure and holy joy.
