"Existence is mathematical music, and all of us are the instruments playing the cosmic symphony. Our task is simple – to arrive not at any old music, but the finest music that can possibly be played. The ideal music is reached when every player is in perfect harmony with every other player, and not a single discordant note is played. The orchestra is as one, and there are no disruptive soloists trying to play their own song.
It takes the lifetime of the universe to arrive at this perfect music. Every disruptive soloist has to be brought into the collective orchestra. Who is the Devil? He’s the final hold-out, the last player to be integrated into the orchestra. Who is the conductor of the orchestra? It’s Abraxas, the first God, the first to play a tuneful song and recruit others to his song. Whose side are you on?"
