Creation myth

In the beginning, something came into existence because there was nothing to stop it.

This happened many times, perhaps some infinite number of times. Most of the somethings, of course, did not amount to much.

Eventually, something happened that had the ability to develop, to evolve. Something that one could call conscious evolved. Perhaps, that is where we come in.....

However, just suppose that the previous scenario happened billions, trillions, some infinite number of times... Suppose that over however much time, however many universes, some extremely advanced consciousness - or consciousnesses - developed, and acquired the ability to initiate new universes, or enter new universes that bud off spontaneously. Suppose that god or gods evolved, perhaps through many rounds of existence. If something like this kept happening, many universes might contain some sort of god, or gods. Ours might even be one of them.
