Again, you mix reality (say, gravitational attraction of Moon and Sun) to your FEELINGS or PATTERNS or EMOTIONS about it and about THE HAND which so carefully placed Moon at certain distance (not less, not more) and gave it certain velocity (not less, not more) so the Moon moves in so harmoniousely perfect circular orbit. Haliluia! (to THE HAND).

Who else could arrange so perfect network of our neurons so that we can so intelligently discuss HIS perfection, sure not a mere DNA with its 3x10^4 brain genes (yes, it takes about 30% of our genes to design and control brain as it is quite complex organ).

Fortunately, there are physical laws (conservation, least action, etc.) and fundamental interactions which both originate from symmetries and dimensionality of space - and those laws and interactions govern all we know WITHOUT the need of any HAND at all.

If you do not understand how things work, sure you can write tons of creative essays about your feelings. But what is the use of them - yet nothing is added to the knowledge of how things work.

But a few equations tell it all.

Plain and simple.
