Agreed. My guess is that the first cause of succeeding universes kept improving the fine tuning until this universe was created.

This could be called the evolution of universes, generation after generation, but without the advantage of sexual reproduction from the best constants of two parent universes.

So it is entirely possible that the constants are tweaked from parent universe to baby universe by some sort of intelligence, or perhaps they get chosen at random and the universes that get bad constants do not get to reproduce.

That is essentially the hypothesis of Smolin except that he says that supermassive black holes produce the baby universes and the constants are tuned to producing as many black holes as possible.

Then after eons of universes, only universes fine tuned to produce max number of black holes remain.

You see it's evolution all the way around.
