Nature, or the intelligence of the universe has overcome the obstacle of reality. That sounds non-sensical, but true. We are (as far as we know) the only species that recognizes that life is not infinite; that death is imminent. Why go on? Why bother? Our dreams and our rationalizations are not based on facts. We keep going by some skewed sense of probabilities, our “specialness” that puts us ahead of the rest; a ridiculous Knowing that "it" will succeed. “It“ being anything we set our minds to. “It” won’t, of course. But predicting failure would be our species’ demise.
