It strikes me that the largest issue facing those who attempt to theorize about the origin and nature of our universe(s) is that they must use an incomplete understanding as a basis. Too much must simply be presumed.
All that is accomplished, in the end, is that we are for a time appeased that language can contain our curiosity, that we have arrived at some satisfactory means of explanation. Yet the feeling never subsides that all of this is projection, and that is is projection essentially because it can be nothing else. Our theories regarding the origin and purpose of the universe are nothing but a branching out from the individual, hopelessly grasping at all he can find, to create a theoretical assemblage.
It's interesting, nonetheless... sorry if my post was pointless; carry on with the discussion!
