Here I Am. Here You Are.
If its some random chaotic accident, why not make it a happy one? If it is an expression of Divine Intelligence or cosmic grand plan then might as well shoulder and savor the responsibility as best a mortal can.

Here belongs. You belong.
Its a miraculous sleight of hand that we could even think that “something is wrong,” or, “I’m not good enough” when you consider that:
- The odds of you being that lucky egg-getting sperm to make it to the egg are 1 in 12,000,000,000.
- The odds of the Earth supporting complex life the way it does are under 0.01 per cent over four billion years.
The odds of you finding and reading this post are probably similar.
Thank you for reading these words.
