If matter has existed for an infinite time, there have been an infinite number of Big Bangs and cosmic unfoldings. Yet the slightest speculation about infinity explains any series of adjustments and coincidences. Let's assume that all the fundamental constants are distributed by pure chance. Each new Big Bang will correspond to a new arrangement of these constants. We would then have an infinite number of different universes. Some will be non-viable, collapsing in on themselves, while others will take on a totally different form to the one we know. After an infinite number of rolls of the dice, the result will be an absolutely improbable composition of fundamental numbers. The miraculous adjustments that make life possible will have occurred and will continue to occur.
