For a little over 150 years, people have been coming to terms with Darwin’s Origin of the Species, with the fact that the the amazing and beautiful diversity on our planet is due to a constant, millions year long struggle for life to conquer other life, to evolve as conditions demand and that genetic makeup of every type of life form changes over time due to mixing and matching and environmental pressures. But what about the universe? Is there any “purpose” to our universe? Lee Smolin, a researcher at the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics and an adjunct professor of physics at the University of Waterloo has proposed an idea called the Theory of Cosmological Natural Selection in which he postulates that the universe’s ultimate goal is to make stars, which then become black holes, which then makes more singularities that can potentially turn into other universes.
It syncs up with almost anything really.
