The structure of the world is simple, because it’s perfect, and at the same time, it is extremely complex for the very same reason. Its simplicity needs to be attained, and such attainment depends on one’s similarity to the world and understanding of it.
However, as long as our consciousness remains uncorrected, we will continue complicating the picture of the world, inventing all kinds of theories (like String Theory and parallel universes, to name just two out of thousands). The world appearing before us is the world we, and only we, imagine. We can never understand what it’s like outside us. In other words, we can never understand the world outside of our our sensations and reason.
There is, however, a different world – and we can feel it if we acquire different perceptions or qualities.
According to different sensations, we can imagine the world according to a different reason. Right now, however, we are incapable of reproducing such a sensation within us.
The purpose of this world’s existence and development is to transform into a different world.
