The World as Enigma

I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.
Umberto Eco

This is a far-reaching and deep quotation. To the honest observer this idea affects everyone whether their world-view is determined by religion, art, science, philosophy or, even, alcohol. It bears further reflection.
