    It's not so much that I a singular entity in the Universe needs this....all of humanity needs this.

    I have often times wondered about a great many things. Wormholes, Faster Than Light Travel, Time Travel, many aspects of a notion or a need that humans have to better understand, rather how to get to where they are going at a faster rate of velocity.

    But what about life? There are many barriers that religion has set up to hinder asking questions of the self but instead seeking answers from others who simply spin the answers like the arms of a spiral galaxy. But in order for humanity to emerge from on the other side of the worm hole we have to ask a simple question.

    Why Does The Universe Exist?

    What logical reason or purpose, purpose being the key word, would a Universe need stars, planets, comets, suns and black holes for?

    The only asnwer is; to support life within said Universe.

    There is no logical reason for a Universe to exist at all without the presence of life within the Universe. Rocks, minerals and energetic reactions serve no purpose at all if life does not exist in and throughout the Universe. There would be no reason for a Universe to exist because non-biological lifeforms do not need work or a challenge to overcome so that the energy that is created can be consumed in order for the challenge to be completed.

    What challenge does the comet overcome by traveling through the Universe?

    What challenge does life overcome by traveling through the Universe ?

    For planets and suns to exist without life in the Universe being present would not be logical as there is no reason for suns and planets to exist except to support life and create challenges that must be met in order for life to succeed.

    Planets, suns, comets and other celestial bodies in the Universe do not need to create challenges in order to succeed.

    Therefore the single and only reason that a Universe exists is to support and maintain life in the form of many forms from the simple organism to the highly advanced sentient and space faring species across the Universe

    A Universe exists to support life because it was life that created the Universe in the beginning from the Quantum Fibers of the Universe to achieve another jump up the orbital ladder in creating challenges to meet those challenges.

    Life created the Universe in order to exist. Life created the Universe in order to challenge itself to be better and become more than a simple particle in space.

    The thought of life created the Big Bang because Life needed a challenge. What challenge is there for a Universe devoid of life at all? What challenge is there for a Universe devoid of life to not see what life has created in order to meet the greatest challenge of all. Can we create a Universe in order to survive in as being more than just causilities in a realm that did not see light?

    The presence of life in the Universe is no longer a question of if, but where can it be found.

    Life created the Universe in order to achieve its single goal of existing.

    What goal does a Sun have other than to fuel life?
    What goal does the planet have other than to house life?
    What goal does life have other than to create a Universe in order to live in?

    The presence of other Universes would also exist as well as the infinite pool of life than we came from would also have had the same prospect of creating in order to survive, to achieve and to succeed.

    Ask yourself this logically, why would a Universe need to exist if life never existed or even had a chance of existing in the Universe? There is no logical need for a Universe to exist other than to house, nurture and create challenges that life must meet in order to exist.

    The Universe didn't create us.

    The thoughts of Life arranged the Big Bang so that humans and other life would be born.

    There is also this:

    https://www.theguardian.com/science...ronomers-found-evidence-of-parallel-universes

    Mainstream science doesn't like to acknowledge incidents that completely defy scientific 'laws'. That type of thing is typically shouted down with aggressive vigor. Poor approach. Just because something can not be reproduced on demand does not mean that it does not exist. Every odd thing across the globe that is reported by only one individual is dismissed as 'anecdotal' because it is not backed up by science. I predict that at some point in the future, that ridiculously restrictive box will be burst wide open. We will likely come to find out that some of those strange happenings are the result of interactions with something/ somewhere else.

    ^ That doesn't make much sense... I always new there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe!

    I needed to somewhere to live. Without me, there is no universe, and I’ve seen no compelling evidence to the contrary.

    Universe created itself because it wanted to know itself.

    If one does not believe in God or intelligent design, isn't the question of "why" the universe exists, moot? Don't the aforementioned hold that the universe was created by happenstance?

    So, for them the question of "why" would seem to have no meaning, because there is no answer to that question. Or perhaps the answer for them is as simple as, 'the universe exists because of an incredible confluence of events and circumstances, nothing more, nothing less".
    Wonder where I was when this was confirmed. :)

    This argument feels self serving, a way of making ourselves more important in the grand scheme.

    The existence of A caused B to exist. I am B. I am important. Therefore, A exists for the sake of B.

    There's plenty of things we observe we can't explain. That doesn't mean there's an intelligent motive pulling the strings, nor does it mean that there isn't. It just means we don't know everything yet.

    The universe does not need a purpose just because having a purpose would make it easier for us to understand.

    I agree. I actually believe there are fundamentals and discoveries beyond what the human brain is capable of processing. That is, I don't recognise we have unlimited understanding.

    Existence is presence so the Universe exists like the sentence "I am". I personally believe in God so I have a belief system based on faith but won't project that here :)

    What's really interesting about the question of "Why does the Universe exist" is that absolutely everything in it has a beginning and an end ... even exotic objects like black holes. The problem is, even if we knew the answer as to why the Universe exists, it probably wouldn't change too much about us, the way we think, the way we live. The idea of multiuniverses, though, seems so false to me. It sounds so completely made up, like the one Universe isn't exciting enough, or worthwhile enough, there has to be more of them to even make this one seem interesting.

    The One existed in absolute isolation and loneliness and then the personality spectacularly fragmented into countless 'separate' beings. :borg:

    Then there's the Minbari religious view on the nature of the universe:

    While being a product of fiction, did JMS base it on a real-world religion?
