   The who, the what, the where, the when, the how—
   These questions curious human minds allow;
   One other, though, our minds always deny
   As most unfathomable: the question why.

   Why are we here?  What purpose do we serve?
   What rules and principles should we observe?
   Why, after eons, should our kind appear
   If not intended and designed for here?

   It cannot be we are an accident.
   We have to think that somehow we are meant,
   That meaning is inherent in the scheme
   That we now know once made the cosmos teem
   From nothing into boundless energy
   Evolving into us—who strive to see.
