Questions about the parameters and laws of physics form a single insistent question in thought: Why are things as they are when what they are seems anything but arbitrary?
One answer is obvious. It is the one that theologians have always offered: The universe looks like a put-up job because it is a put-up job. That this answer is obvious is no reason to think it false.

They have thus made every effort to find an alternative. Did you imagine that science was a disinterested pursuit of truth?
Well, you were wrong.
