Life to me is not viewed as a motif in terms of repetitiveness. Individual life circumstances are diverse and distinct. There are many shapes, forms, designs and patterns. In life we can basically differentiate between one’s beginnings and endings. It is never constant.
I deal in reality and therefore I’m not really impressed with any interpretations. It is difficult for me to elucidate the “wager” itself as being anything other than immoral and unfair. I’m an adult so I don’t care for life games that shatters and then ruin, (just to prove a point). The “Pearl”, through the Torah, reiterates the good being rewarded while the wicked is punished. So yes I can understand why the “Question” is viewed as the problem in Judaism. But again it is not my job to rationalize the enigmatic ways of the Lord. You can not replace the love and lost of one child over the birth of another child. Sometimes things that are lost, stolen, or taken are priceless compared to acquiring or multiplying the same items. Job’s ending is like a parable which faith is based on. But in life we all do not see or experience our happy endings to the extent that Job did.
I believe in metaphysical dualism and Marx’s framework for explaining reality. Also being a dialectical materialist I see material things and life choices are in the process of change. This is brought on by tension, inconsistencies, contradictions and interacting forces that can not be reconciled. Therefore, we can not determine life’s metamorphosis of outcomes. However I believe that a “good deed is its own reward”. Trying to remain virtuous is a path of life and not easy to accomplish.
