More than Enough
Although the night sky is very beautiful, the number of stars has often seemed a bit excessive to me, but I have come to understand that this is not the case. Even though there are more than 300 billion stars in the local galaxy alone, that’s just barely enough. The local universe contains trillions of galaxies for a reason. Simply put, the more places there are for life to exist, the more chances there are for intelligent life to emerge. This is why there are so many stars out there because solars systems occasionally contain habitable planets.
The way it looks to me now, the multiverse just seems to overproduce certain things for safety and/or to allow for a greater deal of refinement. Basically, the cosmos has the propensity to be rather redundant in an effort to enable evolution through adaptation. This makes a lot of sense given that over-abundance leaves plenty of room for improvement. It’s sort of like there’s a cosmic principle that commands the cosmos to continuously create more than is necessary, or it’s like God has a gambling addiction or something.
Whether we’re talking about bacteria, people, or even entire universes, waste is an essential component of the process of evolution. This is how random variations give rise to better-adapted forms of things through the survival of the fittest, all the way from an individual virus to every member of a species and beyond. To find the best in the bunch, the cosmos works with adaptability and expendability to find utility. Thus, from the Bigger Picture POV, the overproduction of spacetime continua and maybe even the overpopulation of planets is just part of the process of cosmic development.
Ultimately, the way it looks to me, the multiverse is necessarily redundant to safeguard the possibility of improvement by leaving plenty of room for trial and error. Thus, in making more of something than is actually necessary, the world allows itself to weed out the weakest links in the great chain of being. In the end, what this means is that, although most of the experiments that the cosmos conducts on itself will end in failure, that’s actually what we want because this is how the best of all possible worlds is achieved.
