← A universe without purpose

Comment 10 by Schrodinger's Cat :

Those heads are part of the universe and a natural consequence of natural laws. If we've evolved to have illusions, then those illusions too are the end result of natural processes. To me that's the enigma in all this. Our thoughts about the universe are part of the universe....which leaves one with the bizzare conclusion that it's perfectly natural for parts of the universe to evolve to have illusory thoughts about the universe. I find that more than a little strange.

Well, I'm not sure what natural processes are going on in my mind, and so as I sceptic, I have to hold judgment on what is going on. It seems to me, that supernatural explanations are nonsense, and so it's one big mystery to me.
