"Never bet on a sure thing"

If there is wisdom in that old saying, how much more wisdom there must be in refusing to bet on an unsure thing! The surest thing mortal existence has to offer us is materialism. And any kind of materialism is a poor bet. But how often we place a large measure of trust in it and dependence on it.

Material existence is inherently undependable. It is never permanently stable and certain. The element of chance is fundamental to materiality. Uncertainty, accident, the unexpected, the unknown—all are basic to an existence structured in matter.
