According to Alan Watts, the game of the universe is peek-a-boo.  He explains reality as some sort of infinite awareness that has imagined all that there is.  We are part of that imagining.  The imaginer and the imagined.  Having imagined ourselves, we completely forget that it is we who are imagining.  Every so often we see something, hear something, or think something that reminds us of what we really are.  Peek-a-boo. Then we forget again.

The forgetting is as miraculous as the remembering. What an amazing game. Even if we completely wake up and see the game that we are playing, we will continue to play.  What was I doing again? Peek-a-boo. Laugh like a baby.
