Why The World Exists: The origins of existence

why-the-world-exists-the-origins-of-existence
From the size of an electron's charge to the cosmological constant, the universe appears to be mysteriously fine-tuned to support life. Can dark matter or infinite parallel universes explain why the world exists, or are such questions fundamentally insoluble?

  3. Just think of the infinite number of universes out there that are NOT fine-tuned to support life. Lucky for us that we're in one that is. ^~

    …of course, now, where else WOULD we be?
