moral + intellectual order are introduced to cause us to keep trying to make sense out of what we are compelled to live through. Irony + paradox abound, + a constant calculated frustration of expectation + hope, a purposeful ruin of plans. The maze's quasi mind acts in a perverse way. But it is not malignant or malicious, just "insane" - which is to say irrational. This is why virtually every system of human thought simultaneously works + does not quite (perfectly) work. Until finally you get into ultimate absurdities as "the thing alters the reality it describes," as stated in "Tears," which, when you uncover this, you are faced with the obvious impossibility of ever correctly formulating a workable worldview - without knowing why you can't!
Plato, in "Timaeus" was on the right track: Noos "persuading" ananke. Actually, Noos is an invader into an (this) irrational realm, but whose aim is not to impose cosmos onto chaos but rather to extricate us, as the Gnostics realized (+ the Xtians, + the mystery religions).
