Sources & further reading:
At this very second, you are on a narrow ledge between life and death. You probably don’t feel it, but there is an incredible amount of activity going on inside you. And this activity can never stop.
Picture yourself as a slinky falling down an escalator moving upwards - the falling part represents the self replicating processes of your cells, the escalator represents the laws of physics, driving you forwards. To be alive is to be in motion but never arriving anywhere. If you reach the top of the escalator there is no more falling possible and you are dead forever.
Somewhat unsettlingly, the universe wants you to reach the top. How do you avoid that and why are you alive?

"Light Bulb - A complex enough invention that cannot be created itself randomly. Sun - A billion times more complex and beneficial. It must have been created randomly." (Does not make sense) Sorry If that sounded rude but no way all this complex universal system and this universal equation we are all part of exists without an intelligent Creator behind it. Some say we don't need God as nature exist. The fallacy they make is that they are merely substituting the word God with nature. Indirectly they too believe something willed it to be this way. Anyone that believes such complexity and balance can come from randomness is like believing you faced the other way, waved your paint brush completely random at a canvas and looked back to see a perfectly drawn picture of Mona Lisa.
