    And where did they come from? 😜 God. The bible says that Jesus created all things , and all things are held together by Him. The more we learn about these kind of things the more we see the awesome power of Jesus. I encourage you to read the bible and learn about , and meet the creator of all things. He's wanting you that's why He gives us the ability to see His attributes in all things. 😉

    Amazing lesson, except that if you mean by the rules of the universe the laws of nature, then they are much wider than just governing forces, the four forces are interactions carried by particles and not laws of nature, both matter and force are governed by the laws of nature, the laws of nature are the universal patterns we find in all that happens in the universe.

    the answer for any question we may ask about the existence of anything, can ALWAYS be followed up infinitely with a why question! .. so it sims like there is actually no definite answer to every possible questions we ask! the universe might be infinitely complex after all!
