Inhaltsangabe: What kind of universe is this anyway? Does life have any meaning or purpose? If there is a God, why did God create the universe? Whatever His-Her-Its motives (let us not sex-type the Creator) how could a loving God knowingly create a universe which is capable of the kind of cruelty we experience on this planet: death, concentration camps, slavery, child molesting, gossip, racism, illness, physical and mental disabilities, etc.? The Game of God makes the radical proposal that the universe is literally the game of God; that God created the universe in order to experience duality and limitation. The purpose of the universe is for God to enjoy the vast array of experiences that God, as an unlimited being, cannot experience: life and death, joy and pain, beginning and end, fear and hate, happiness and sorrow. In order to have a realistic experience of limitation, God must forget that She-He-It is God. The universe is, in fact, God in a self-induced state of amnesia. The universe is a game in which God forgets His-Her-Its identity and in the process of playing remembers who She-He-It is. Evolution is the process of God awakening from self-induced amnesia into the remembrance of His-Her-Its true identity. We are not separate creatures who are "victims" of existence. We are expressions of God experiencing limitation and overcoming it. We are God in disguise. Human suffering comes from the mistaken belief that who we really are is our personality, or ego. When we identify as ego, we must survive as that ego, which in this universe means operating from flight/fight behavior. Our lives are a constant battle for the survival of a mistaken identity. We are always either fighting reality or flighting from it. Love and transcendence lie in the cessation of survival behavior, in the acceptance of reality. Love is the experience of unconditional acceptance of what is. With a cartoon on every left-hand page illustrating the text on the right, these ideas are presented in a light and humorous manner. Tim Allen says, "If you really have your s*** together, read this book. (from the suggested reading in his book, I'm Not Really Here.)
