“We are an accident”

“A vast number of universes may exist, with many different values of the amount of dark energy. Our particular universe is one of the universes with a small value, permitting the emergence of life. We are here, so our universe must be such a universe. We are an accident.”
–Alan Lightman, The Accidental Universe: http://amzn.to/1EzyNrJ
