Same reason anything else exists. It just does. Through evolution and maybe a touch of DNA from extraterrestrial bags of bacteria. There is nothing special about us and that's a very important lesson that took me nearly 40 years to learn properly.

What the hell are we? Lately I've been looking at the sky and thinking wtf is all this about? Why is there even a universe? What contains our universe? Then to make it even harder, we only have OUR perception of THIS universe to go off.
Does anyone know much about size and how it affects time? Because if we want to know the answer to the biggest mystery, What are we? We need to enlarge our box that we think in.
I'm mainly interested in other people's opion's about the bigger picture. Can the TRUTH be discovered?

Why stop thinking about it?
I can understand if you feel it just is not important though. It is like religion, either you feel it and feel a pull to go, or you don't. Either way it is ok.
Myself personally, I can't do that. My mind is constantly on the metaphysical. Probably because I am an introvert.
