Raymond M. Smullyan

I think the most accurate and fruitful definition of me [God] which man can frame—at least in his present state of evolution—is that I am the very process of enlightenment. Those who wish to think of the devil…might analogously define him as the unfortunate length of time the process takes. In this sense, the devil is necessary; the process simply does take an enormous length of time, and there is absolutely nothing I can do about it. But, I assure you, once the process is more correctly understood, the painful length of time will no longer be regarded as an essential limitation or an evil. It will be seen to be the very essence of the process itself.
