Thus the very laws of nature have a tendency to produce creatures who find the laws of nature a bit odd.

What a fascinating observation! I suspect you are right. Because science will probably always extend the mind of a creature beyond what it has evolved to find familiar.

That is quite a thought though - the universe possibly filled with beings who all are in a state of puzzlement.

It reminds me of this Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy dialogue:

Arthur: All my life I've had this strange feeling that there's something big and sinister going on in the world. Slartibartfast: No, that's perfectly normal paranoia. Everyone in the universe gets that.
