I'm here because the Universe has a sense of humor, and more voices were needed to argue the things I argue, and 3 small cats needed someone to feed them. Beyond that, it's a mystery.
Perhaps The Universe (which you are deeming an intelligence?) required your presence here Bob to argue just that very point.. that it was The Universe who put you here. So your job is done Please keep on your guard for humorous lightning bolts and other nature things now then!! Perhaps three small cats would fend ok for their own food if you were not here? There is a reason you are here Bob perhaps it is not three small cats. Perhaps it is, I do not know. There are quite a few kitties on MT here we need more looking after to stop us all scratching each others eyes out I think!
