Something (Eternally) Wonderful: "The Most Astounding Fact..."

Have you ever seen a pic of the Taj Mahal? Beautiful, expansive, built to commemorate the love between a man and a woman.

As is often said about the universe, if we are the only living creatures in it what a terrible waste of space. OR, the biggest, most extravagant mansion that could ever be built. It's not only bigger than you can imagine, perhaps infinite in dimension and infinite in number (multiverse), but eons of thought about it doesn't even begin to explain it all.
