Eyes of living creatures

"Coffer," by Czeslaw Milosz.
Perhaps the world was created by the Good Lord to reflect itself in the infinite number of eyes of living creatures, or, what is more probable, in the infinite number of human consciousnesses.
Also of human fantasies, such as my romantic imagination of the forest in Raudonka or my imagination of the breasts of Miss Paula when I was in love with her.
Or perhaps He is a grand computer in which unlimited numbers of them would find rest.
Maybe He's busy going through them, comparing the reflected images with what really happened.
Laughing into His beard at the wise men who maintained that there are only reflections and nothing else.
