Mark,

>>>I kinda like this argument. I take it as: the universe (or symmetry) never actually "branches off". Perhaps the universe never chose + over - or vice versa... They can both remain coexisting as possibilities for eternity, never actually chosen between. I guess this would be like the "ULTIMATE BEGINNING" to the many worlds interpretation of QM. So the universe never chooses between ying or yang; they simply go on to coexist indecisively, forever.Then the two words, "possible" and "logical" in my opinion, are like using a thesaurus and looking up two different ways to express the same meaning. So of course if it's possible it must be logical! Basically put... it's equivalent to saying "Why are they possible?", "Because they are possible." When you word it that way, you beg the question and presuppose the answer; there is really no meaning in that way of putting it.
