Leaving all knowledge aside for the moment..... There seems to be two stable states for the universe 1. Void. There is no universe because there's no natural phenomena to bring it into existence. 2. An intelligent universe. Here the intelligence has devised a way of bringing itself into existence. This 'way' manifests itself as the universe as we know it. Hence, future scientists are the intelligence. As we know the universe is real, therefore state 2 rules. Human/Alien intelligence acted as the force that brought the universe into existence. State 2 implies time travel will one day be possible. Causal :surprised Does anybody have any comment on the above? Thanking you in advance.
