“Everything I studied at Cambridge, Harvard, and Cal Tech confirms, to the extent it confirms anything, that the Big Bang theory of the origin of the universe is true. The universe expanded from a primordial hot and dense initial condition at a specific time in the past. Multiple measurements, of the expansion using Type Ia supernovae, temperature fluctuations in the cosmic microwave background, and the correlation function of galaxies, agree that the universe has an age of about 13.7 billion years. It’s still expanding today.
“That’s “how we’re here.” I’ve tried to apply the same processes to figure out “why.” 30 years later, I still have no idea. Until I do, I don’t see any point in making any choices about how to live the rest of my life.
“There’s still time.”
