I just noticed both LOL and CL have 12 chapters. I didn’t plan that but it happened. This is the last chapter *gasp* like anyone will miss it. If you guys want an epilougue i can manage that, but YOU NEED TO TELL ME, okay?? I can’t read your mind, but when you share your thoughts it makes my day. Enjoy this final piece of the puzzle!
At work we were talking about quitting and I joked about witting the lottery.
After I said that everyone took out $2 and sent one of our cooks across the street to the liquor store to buy all of us lottery tickets.
On one thing most physicists agree. If the amount of dark energy in our universe were only a little bit different than what it actually is, then life could never have emerged. A little larger, and the universe would have accelerated so rapidly that matter in the young universe could never have pulled itself together to form stars and hence complex atoms made in stars. And, going into negative values of dark energy, a little smaller and the universe would have decelerated so rapidly that it would have re collapsed before there was time to form even the simplest atoms…We are an accident. From the cosmic lottery hat containing zillions of universes, we happened to draw a universe that allowed life. But then again, if we had not drawn such a ticket, we would not be here to ponder the odds.
