The world cannot be mastered, but it can be known in part. History cannot be known, but it can in part be mastered.

The world is everything that is the case.
History is everything that happens.
God is doing all He can.

________
Note: Pith has taken precedence over precision. Things are to the world as people are to history, and being is to things as becoming is to people, so history isn't everything that happens so much as it becomes everyone who happens or, better, everyone who happens becomes history. Or, we might say, history happens to everyone. Also, seeing is to doing as the world is to history. The last line could read, "All-seeing God is doing all He can."
