Since all the Universal Laws that rule
Existence are discoveries — they’ve been
In operation since before the minds
Of humans woke to their effects — not one
Invented by an act of human thought —
What agency devised them?
Was it Chance
Arranged their subtle interplay?. If so,
The odds were astronomical against
Producing such precise perpetual
Why have our brains evolved
A reason-function?. So that we might learn
How meaninglessly random all things are;
The utter senselessness of matter, time and space;
Coincidence the universe’s causal base?.
