While I bang on about the Universe and its laws (which I can't afford to do in Empowerment programmes if I'm to keep great feedback scores) I can almost hear people thinking, "All very well but I'm here, and that's out there, and it doesn't affect me and MY life." They switch off to go think about something more meaningful, like what kind of dog food to buy.
We are given eyes to see, and most of us can see colour. Colour is a marriage of light and dark. Black and white are both made of all colours - white reflects, black absorbs. Colours in between are variants based on wavelength, something else we now understand a little about. We know that electromagnetism and colour are connected, because scientists rely on this fact to conduct their cosmic surveys. Colour is given to our field of vision so that we can make more sense of our surroundings, inside the atmosphere and outside it. We appreciate Beauty through seeing colour. Beauty is a Quark, married in Quarkdom to Truth.

The Universe really isn't cut out for political agendas or religious doctrines or moral arguments, it is quite simply set up to ensure that life has the best possible opportunity to further itself, so that the Universe can answer its own questions through its life forms. Quite possibly this Universe is a rarity among Universes, one which has established a framework of parameters to specifically create life as we know it to be. Whatever the truth behind universal intellect, we are part of it.
Not separate, disengaged observers, not hopeful outsiders waiting for a chance to peek, but Parts. Parts with a job to do.
