Huginn: He said that the foolishness of God was greater than the wisdom of men. He said that the wisdom of God was as foolishness to men. I see, and see again, and it seems to me therefore that the foolishness of God is greater than the wisdom of God, and that therefore the universe is the product more of folly than of wisdom.

Muninn: My rebellious friend, remember that 'as foolishness' and 'foolishness' are not the same thing.

H: So, in what way 'as' ?

M: As high as the heavens from the earth or as far as the east from the west, so 'as' .

H: We know that the heavens touch the earth and that east becomes west as the world turns. There is no distance at all.

M: And yet there is difference. Be careful, my friend.
