    I believe the world is too real to be real. I think that when we see people going about their daily business and the dematerialise as soon as they are out of sight. It's a conspiracy I tell you!

    Also time. It doesn't exist. How can it? For time has a past, present and a future... yet you always have to generalise the present. No matter how much you subdivide in to seconds, milleseconds etc. you can never pinpoint present as 'time' is always moving along. Therefore there is no present.. therefore time cannot exist. We generalise 'it' to suit our species.

    Right. Ranting over. I need a cup of tea.

    I believe there must be a special reason we exist.

    We're part of an experiment or something.
    Left alone on this planet, far away from everything, THEY have studied our evolution, how life makes it's way through darkness.

    Maybe THEY help us from time to time, when it's *really* critical and we cannot manage it.

    THEY don't let us all die, but that's all, nothing more.

    Cheers, bacterium fellows! ;°)

    Or we could have just evolved as scientists swear blind we did... I don't think so but it's possible.

    Something we have yet to discover. If 'they/it' had the power to create us then surely it would have the power to shield itself/themselves from us.

    Kinda like SimCity.

    >> Who/What started the experiment?

    Taking in account the infinite number of possibilities, the cyclic evolution theory ...and being hell lazy, my first answer is: we ourselves!
