Roger Ebert wrote a thoughtful piece on the existence of the universe a few weeks back.
In re-reading it, I drift away on a Zen-like tangent ...
Here is here, whether we are here or not.
Here does not depend on me
... to reflect on it before it can be here.
It is just here
... with or without my reflection on it
... or interaction with it.
Here was here before I got here.
Here will be here long after I am gone.
I am here now
... and can reflect on here.
It's beautiful here
... so I am glad to be here.
