It hasn't been an extreme amount of time, it's only been 13.8 Billion years since the Big Bang !
Universe is expected to live to Approx 10 to the power of 100 years or 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years from now... Until the Heat Death Arrives at least !
Why are we alive at the very start of it all ? Why are we alive on the most perfect Planet that we could possibly be on, at the most perfect Time in the Universe's entire history both past & future.... There is more to it than Random Chance, why now when we can see the edge of the Observable Universe ? Why not in 500 Billion Years when all other Galaxy's have gone beyond the edge of the observable universe due to dark matter & dark energy ? Why now, in this time of Stars & Galaxy's ?
