Time to share your views on what's happening in the universe. While I'm not a big fan of turning philosophy into a profession, I think it's a great thinking exercise, because you can experiment with things you don't see in your daily life.
So here are my thoughts on the nature of the universe:
The fun thing about the universe is that it's infinite in time and space. It's something humans have a hard time understanding. We usually measure emptiness, like in "an empty hand" or "an empty glass". We try to specify amounts of emptiness in an (in our opinion) filled world.
The void of the universe is of an entirely different nature. So different that it's hard to put into human words: The universe is not the absence of anything, it's the natural state of not-being.
In the universe there's no here and no now, because if you have a plane that extends endlessly there's no beginning, no fixed point that you could you can put the here and now in relation to.
There also is no first time for anything, because everything has always happened. There's no one big bang that formed matter out of nothing, because that would imply that there wasn't anything before that, but since the time before is infinite, it must have happened before. And because the space is infinite it must be happening somewhere right now as a matter of fact. Somewhere right now there are a infinite number of worlds just like this where you are married to the equivalent of Salma Hayek. There's also an infinite numbers of worlds where you don't exist, so all in all I'd say being on our earth isn't all that bad.
There's no purpose, no point to anything. Stuff just happens. But you know what the really fun part is? It doesn't matter. We live in what we perceive as the here and now, and we create reference points that only matter to us. Moral values that don't have any logical basis. You can call them "god", "believe", you can call them "good in people", it doesn't really matter. People who try to find the logic in our being here are at best unhappy and at worst suicidal. These oversimplifications keep us happy. It feels good to be good. And that's what matters to us.
