Ideas are survival tools like hammers and knives invented by social groups of individuals to combat existential paradoxes like storms, floods, earthquakes, fire, hunger, pain, battles, treachery , absurdity, meaninglessness, internal loneliness, etc.

The universe’s endless expanse is a windfall prerequisite for the emergence of life.
