What's the point? You're never going to hear.

I've been thinking about your "why" question.

Honestly does it matter?

Imagine you are a robot, self aware, and you ask the corporation why they made you. They would answer with the most unsatisfactory of answers. To make profit, to understand our selves, or simply because we can.

The same type of answer exists for the expansion of the universe, an imbalance of forces, and the reason why the singularity existed is likely to be something along the same lines.

“The significance of our lives and our fragile planet is then determined only by our own wisdom and courage. We are the custodians of life's meaning. We long for a Parent to care for us, to forgive us our errors, to save us from our childish mistakes. But knowledge is preferable to ignorance. Better by far to embrace the hard truth than a reassuring fable. If we crave some cosmic purpose, then let us find ourselves a worthy goal.”
