"Forces that we cannot understand permeate our universe. We see the shadows of those forces when they are projected upon a screen available to our senses, but understand them we do not. Understanding requires words. Some things cannot be reduced to words. There are things that can only be experienced wordlessly. This says our universe is magical. It says all arbitrary forms are transient and subject to magical changes. Science has led us to this interpretation as though it placed us on a track from which we cannot deviate."
---Frank Herbert, Heretics of Dune

"Maybe some things cannot be reduced to understanding either. Such as, why does the universe designer like to include suffering so much?"

"How could the creative genius of evolution work its slow miracle---gradually stirring raw chemicals into soul-carrying beings---without enormous numbers of trials and outcomes? The "real" world needs consistency and countless failures in order for natural selection to do its job, drawing complexity out of chaos. It is the answer to the Riddle of Pain."
---David Brin, Kiln People
