Does anyone else see the universe this way.... The entire infinite universe was neccessary to facilitate the creation of life. AKA the entire universe and all its complexity is a prerequisite for life and all of its complexity.. If you give something an infinite number of chances to occur, It will occur. If the universe wasn't the size it is, then perhaps life may not be supported by it. Every option had to be created in order to support the one thing the entire universe was created to create....that is, life. That said, I also think its fairly obvious that the purpose of a sentient being is to be the guardian of life itself, to find new ways of facilitating life after this universe ends. So according to my philosophy (inherited from my father), mankind (or the little green men we evolve to) MUST find a way to traverse the known universe, so that when it ends, life will not. Perhaps we are to create a sub-universe that exists at a higher frequency than the speed of light, completely escaping time. This may mean becoming the God of another universe, not able to change it, but able to make its existence possible. Perhaps our minds are already this device...and our experience is a byproduct. Just like life is a byproduct of infinity. Interesting, no? I love the impossibility of existence.
