Why might be a tall order to explain. I might be able to tell you how?...:)
The main characteristic of our lives is causality. You write a blog in the morning, and you might be late to work..:) (so I will be fast..)
Causality means that current events are connected to past events through some action. In physics, that action is actual action-at-distance....Gravitation, Electromagnetism are forces which act at distance. Notice that I didn't mention the others (Electro-weak or Strong). They play no role in my theory. Anything that acts at distance implies that you are interacting with the past. It takes time for the field (dilaton field) to reach you.
There is an Anthropic Principle (which vaguely states as an answer for the why the Universe is like this - It is like this otherwise we couldn't ask this question right now and here..:) - a circular reasoning not unlike my hypergeometrical universe cross-sections...:)
The question I will answer is if there is a deeper understanding we can derive from the Hypergeometrical Universe theory that would provide an answer to that question with a little more details.
Thus permitting us to stand in a cloudless night and watch the whole Universe ...
