Why is the Universe the Way it is?

Why is the universe a big, vacuumed space with stars and planets and gravity and dark matter? Why is there life and a need of survival for species? Why is there just nothing? No universe or anything, why is there a universe or multiple universes in the first place?

bp_psy hit the nail on the head.

But for further reading on one viewpoint, look up the Anthropic Principle.

In a nutshell: if it were not the way it is, we would not be here to observe it. So, of all the ways universes might have manifest - or not manifest - the only ones that get observed are the ones that have physical laws that support the evolution of an observer.
