The world should never have been created, I tell X, it was a cosmic miscarriage. Suddenly I’m convinced God experienced a moment of horror when he saw what he’d done and what would happen, then withdrew from his creation forever. The Deists are right, I tell X. Or maybe the Gnostics are right, I say, and the world really was created by an evil demiurge. Or maybe the Jainists are right, I say, maybe we need to get rid of all this filthy matter so we can float up into God, holy and invisible. But how could I float up into God with you around?
