Let's say we could create our own universe. Just for the normal scientific reasons.....to see what happens/to see if it is possible. So we create some kind of "desktop" universe, something like what Linde and Guth talk about, and eventually conscious beings form and start to inquire about that universe. The question is: Does this universe have purpose, and what would it be? What answer could be given when these creatures inside the universe start to ask "why"?
