I'm a computer programmer, and like you I have no idea how the hardware works :) Anyways, I love to speculate and here would be my thoughts:
1 If there is a "God" (can we say universal intelligence)
2 and he/she/it has some interest in human beings
3 God has choosen not to reveal himself to me at this time
I'm open to that possibility, but for me I'm just speculating. For me, there seems to be some extenal energy source beyond my body and mind. Sometimes I can experience it deliberately by meditating or listening/playing music, but I'm not actually sure what it is, if it is God (or a part of God, a god, demon, etc.), if it has intelligence, or if it is in my imagination. I have a hard time going much further than that without speculating.
In times of change learners inherit the earth; while the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.
