It is undeniable that we are a product of the Universe and we know we are conscious beings. Why is there a neccessity for consciousness anyway? Isn't it enough for the Universe to just exist?...

When I die, the lights go out, there is no me, it's hard to grasp because you can't imagine not being, it's darn near impossible, if not impossible, and that is the basis of religion.
