I am not a religious person, so I am looking for some help from people of faith. My questions are: Why is everything here? (everything = universe, galaxy, planets, humans, fish, bacteria, and/or any other "created" thing.)
Not only why is "everything" here, but why are WE (people) here? What is reason that we are in existence?

'Conjoint creation and joy to all from its comtemplation!'
This is the second night in the Siberian Taiga with Anastasia
"Anastasia kept her word and lay down bside me. I sensed the fragrance of her body, which surpassed all other odours. It was more pleasant than the most delicate perfume I had ever sensed from a woman's body. But now I had no thought of wanting to posess her. After my attempt to do so on the way to the glade, (where she lives, no house camp just nature!) which had resulted at the time in an attack of fear and loss of counciousness, I no longer felt aroused by fleshly desires, even when I saw her naked.
I lay down and dreamt of the son my wife never bore to me. And I tought: Wouldn't it be wonderful if my son could be borne by Anastasia! She is so healthy, sturdy and beautiful! The child, then, too would be halthy. He would look like me. Like her too, but more like me. He would be a stong and clever individual. He would know a lot. He would become talented and prosper.
I imagined our infant son sucking at his mother's nipple and involuntarily put my hand on Anastasia's warn, supple breast. Immediately a shiver ran through my whole body and then dissipated at once, but it wasn't a shiver of fear, but something else, extraodinarily pleasing. I didn't take my hand away, but held my breath and waited for what might happen. Next thing I noticed was the feeling of the soft palm of her hand on mine. She did not push me away."
"I raised my head and began looking into Anastasia's marvellous face. The white twilight of the northern night made it seem evenmore attractive. I couldn't take my gaze off her. Her greyish-blue eyes looked at me tenderly. I didn't restrain myself, but bent closer and, quickly and carefully, with just the slightest touch, planted a kiss on her half-open lips. Once more a pleasing shiver ran through my body. My face was enshrouded with the fragrance of her breath. Her lips didn't utter, as the last time, 'Do not do this!.....Calm Down!', and I had no fear at all. I was still haunted by the prospect of a son. And when Anastasia tenderly embraced me, I felt something indescibable.
Only upon awakening in the morning was is able to realise that this kind of magnificent feeling, blissful excitement and satisfaction was something i had never once experienced in my entire life. Another peculiar thing: after a night with a woman I always felt a sense of physical fatigue, but everything was different. In addition, I had the feeling of some kind of great co-creation. My satisfction wasn't just something physical, but had another dimension I couldn't quite comprehend, one i had never experienced before, extraordinarily lovely and joyful. The thought even flashed through my mind that life was worth living just for this feeling alone. And why had I never experienced anything that even came close to this before, even though there had been all sorts of women- beautiful women, beloved women, women experienced in love.............."
