Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


The Creator gazed upon his latest Creation, the best Universe so far, summoned at one blast from a supremely dense single atom and now filling the vastness of space; able to see everything and every being on every planet, past, present and future, all accessible to the Creator's penetrating eye and all-encompassing intelligence; some on Planet Earth said He was God, and they used many different names for this God in the many different languages which had developed along with their different cultures and varying perceptions of themselves and their World Views, while on Planet Zog 9.5 it was She who was known as Mother, or f94/48fn3p in the principle dialect – for a better one see the Yiddish QQ: Quadary Quadaryary; but when The Creator watched the Universe, or any part of it, it was not simple woolgathering, it was with a purpose. and choosing one of the many spirits which whirled endlessly around The Creator's central location, right at the very heart of the Universe, a message was sent, received, understood and acted upon: on Earth - the planet which caused The Creator more problems than all others put together and which had on many occasions required supreme effort of will to restrain from simply erasing - Jakob Feldman opened his eyes, yawned, and sleepily reached out for the piece of dazymous bread which sat upon a saucer at his bedside; as he chewed, for the first time in Eternity, he wondered why The Creator chose him for this mission; that he had been brought to life as an adult, albeit with an impeccable back story or legend already imprinted in all the people who now thought they had known him all their lives, was in itself unique; all the other Spirits had been recirculated through countless Births, Marriages and Deaths - Hatches, Matches and Dispatches as the Spirits' Human Lives were known - but for some reason The Creator had saved him for this one mission and he would do his very best to carry it out; but first he had to know more about his new and original life and the environment he now occupied, so he quickly dressed and sticking a wallet in his pocket he hurried downstairs, turned right as his new memory told him to do, and walked the several hundred yards to the local booketeria: Eats, Reads and Leaves where he greeted his girlfriend, Miriam, who was serving another customer; "Mmmm," he thought to himself, "she is very attractive, I wonder who her own Spirit is?" –
