Goldilocks

So, this girl committed home invasion on three bears, uses their stuff, tastes their prepared meal, and sleeps in their beds. Invariably, one was too extreme in one direction, another in an opposite direction, and the last just right. Too hot, too cold, just right.

The Universe seems similar.

  • Not too hold or too cold.
  • Not too strong or weak on several different forces.
  • Our galaxy is not too big or small; not too many or too few stars.
  • We have a simple star system without too many or few planets.
  • Our star is not too big or small.
  • Our planet is not too big or too small.
  • Our planet is not too close or far from the star. Aka the Goldilocks Zone.

So many things are just right for our existence.

We also have one star instead of two or three like most star systems. We also have water in the Goldilocks Zone when it should be more common out near Uranus and beyond.

So much had to go right in the Universe and locally for us to exist.
