I can't imagine a Universe with out life! The latest sensation of science is that the Universe is conscious (pan- psychism) and thus alive, see:
Robert Nadeau and Menas Kafatos; "The non-local Universe, the new physics and matters of the mind."; Oxford Univ. Press, N.Y. NY, 1999 pp 197-198
Also "God is Love!" 1 John 4:8, 16.
Good luck in trying to understand Love, good mental health, peace and Love!
A happy old man (76 yrs) who thinks Love is the most complex subject facing humankind.
