What are the odds of your existing ... as you? [from Jack]
I love his conclusion [to which I have added the emphasis]. At the same time, though, this realization about the probabilities makes me feel less like a miracle and more like an insignificant random event. What if Mom and Dad had been in a slightly different position and a different sperm cell had won the race? What if they hadn't married when they did? Or at all? Etc. I wouldn't be here.
That's a little unnerving, I must say.
