sas MACRO ampersand?

%let test = one; %let one = two; %put &test; %put &&test; %put &&&test; %put &&&&test; %put &&&&&test; Well. I'm TOTALLY BEATEN by these ampersands. I don't understand why they need SO MANY ampersands before a macro variable. Is there any trick to master the usage of ampersand? BTW, what are the five results, correspondingly?
