Action & reaction

The Ramchal writes that even though we are on this world to earn our reward for the next world, our toil is finite but our reward is infinite.
(Derech Hashem – First Chelek, Chapter 3:3)

The question is why is considered as if we earned it if it’s so unbalanced?
The answer might be, because when we perform a mitzvah it’s like we are operating a complicated machine that is manufacturing very valuable items. Even though the operator only pushed some button he is credited in producing the valuable items.  So too this world is a complicated machine, when we perform a mitzvah great things happen which we are credited for.
