Storyline

The eternal puzzling questions where humanity comes from and why are tackled in various ways. Objectively, the improbability of any birth, considering the endless list of necessary prerequisites, often entirely random, for both individual and species a such, and even earth and the universe, is mind-boggling, yet also often taken as basis for a religious belief in divine creation. Science studies both laws of nature and chaos, attempting to frame all in mathematical terms, from subatomic and the course of a ballgame to cosmic scale. The very key role of natural constants, such as gravity, is held to underpin the theory of countless parallel universes, so numerous at lest one has to be exactly right to be as we know reality.
