What if everything you know about the universe -- which, granted, isn't much -- was wrong mostly because we made the wrong assumptions?
In the same way that the presence of a universe seems like a miracle, as if there should instead be nothing at all, so also are we perplexed at the order that is such an elementary part of the universe in which we live. There should instead be chaos, is seems, rather than the one particular universe observed, for we naturally consider the infinity of less consistent, less trustworthy, and more chaotic, worlds that might exist instead. Yet suppose for a moment a rarely considered idea, that this universe is not actually unordinary or improbable, and instead we ourselves are making some critical mistake in how we see the world, a mistake which if we could somehow see beyond, suddenly the order in the universe would seem exactly how things should be.
I, ah, have absolutely no idea what's being said here.
