Continuing down the list of six possible explanations for the "anthropic" coincidences in nature which allow intelligent life to evolve...largely inspired and derived from George F.R. Ellis' brilliant brief book, BEFORE THE BEGINNING. He is NOT responsible, though, for the liberties I've taken with his logic or how I've chosen to illustrate it.


I don't really believe in an oscillating universe at all. It's comforting in a way---it squares the evidence of a Big Bang with the yearning for an eternal cycle, like the seasons--but it doesn't really add up.


Still, the idea---once espoused by Wheeler, among others--is worth examining.


Next time: IMPOSSIBLE BUT TRUE.
