There need not be any harmony in the Universe. For eg. a Higgs vacuum decay can destroy Universe for no reason, far beyond us. In Tripura Rahasya,  Dattatreya says “ Carvakas  say that some effects are not traceable to their efficient causes. There are occurrences without any antecedent causes. Just
