The higher the human intellect rises in the revelation of these purposes, the more obvious it becomes that the ultimate purpose is beyond our comprehension.
Different books in every way, except some similar points that the big things that happen are the results of a multitude of many tiny things (infinitesimally small elements) added up.

Free will? Destiny? Chaos? I don't know.

Now the question is which one to watch?
