Default QM

Don't know much about Quantum mechanics.
But it made me think of the Black Swan theory.

The universe exists simply because it is there for us to observe. In other words, humans learned of the existence of the universe through observing how the universe was formed by the discovery of the laws of physics. If humans had not evolved to the present level, then observation would be impossible, and they would never learn of the existence of the universe. This means whether the universe exists or not, for a human who hasn't completely evolved, it wouldn't make much of a difference. It is because of the presence of us completely evolved humans that the existence of the universe is widely accepted.

BTW i think that it's such a queer way of thinking! I mean, the universe exists regardless of whether humans exist or not. the Anthropic Principle is not completely scientific, just a philosophical way of thinking. However, something interesting comes out from this theory. Why did the universe come to be in a state suitable for human habitation? A minor change in the gravitational constant would mean a completely different universe from the one we're in. Other sets of rules such as Planck's Constant or the mass ratio of atomic molecules seem to be designed specifically so that humans can live in this universe. Don't you find this incredible?
"Trolling" the old posts and found this. Interesting, no one commented on this in the light that it leans far more for a "Creator", than for evolution.

Just bored and reading

For us religious naturalists: Could mixing blue and yellow just as well produce another color than green? Says who? In other words, are there "natural laws", regardless of who was in charge of determining that green is created.

Have a good day.

I think it's all there- waiting for us to become aware. A cure for cancer exists. We just aren't aware of it yet. But it's still there.
