Cosmological expansion constant

Fine tuning problem
I studied and listened to these findings, and frustrations, by scientific leaders, and see now, the deep angst of anyone who wishes there was a complete explanation for the mind of God. There isn’t, and never will be, but these findings stubbornly point to him while simultaneously being made to sound like they’re doing the opposite. There is no ruling out God, but there are many, many ways they’re impossible without God.
An overarching factor is information and energy conservation, which are necessary for any correlative science, especially conjecture of unobservable data. All theory, in fact, must use these as a baseline for axiomatic derivation of any hypothesis. Without an explanation for those last four on the list, though, the first nine don’t have a correlative connection to observation, so they remain conjecture rather than testable hypotheses.
Relativity comes the closet to an unbreakable law then the rest, being tested and observed to repeat with accurate results, but it’s explanation both defies the validity of all of the other eight, and seems to depend fundamentally, as QFT does, on the last four. Energy, especially, is identified as the one pivotal factor that could unite the conjecture on all of them, but at the Plank scale and the Schwarzschild scale, none of them agree or have any uniting theory.
The one thing that holds all of them together cannot be reconciled between any of them. The standard model falls flat at explaining 96% of the energy found experimentally in the universe. And, the famous “worst prediction in science,” vacuum energy, is wrong in triple digit orders of magnitude, and in the wrong direction. Who trusts these hypotheses? Add to it the failure to isolate the Hubble Constant, and there is a general failure to explain the inaccuracy and non-testability of all of these on this list. Save for the success of relativity, which actually is the one throwing the wrench into all of the others, there is no basic understanding of, or even agreed upon approach to understanding unification.
There is no place to go but up. Taken together, the single faith in one God is the best explanation for these findings, or rather, speculations, because that is what they are. A remaining inconsistency has always been how structure comes from no form. The answer has always been some form of “because physical laws…” But now that we know that the physical makes up barely any of the unobservable phenomena on this list, the search is on for philosophical answers, and that is what they are, no matter how the scientific conjecture faithful want to frame it.
Excluding God has been not only ruled out, but self identified as the inevitable consequences of this one question, who thought this all up? Even if you have a mechanism for the “inevitability” of our existence, why should it be so? That answer has been of late, evolution out of physical laws, and more controversially, the anthropic principle. But, then energy distribution rears its head and says, when have we seen chaos direct itself into a specifically beneficial order like fine tuning suggests. Shouldn’t there be a directing factor that has this information within it to begin with? Fluctuation might be symmetrical within a physical framework, but in the case of physically decoupled universes, what then? There is no single reason, outside of intent, that any system should have specific order at all.
Power is said to be an accident of a dynamic, preset order to all initial conditions. Nothing, essentially, cannot remain nothing. But who made this rule? It may very well be true, we’re sitting here as a testament to it. But, this simply does not explain the self directing nature of power into physical structure. It requires, rather, an explanation why there was information, initially, at all, to tell nature what to do. And, it requires an explanation at all for specific energy distribution… why shouldn’t everything simply collapse back to nothing rather than contain anomalous information that caused it to do otherwise?
This brings me to the simple solution of a thought out, directed universe. The idea that mind could not preexist form is a very moot point considering there is no need to answer for time and space when you are talking about every time and space, indeed, every THING all at once. Everything could simply know how it could become something rather than nothing, and what something it should probably become to avoid collapsing back to nothing. We’re describing God perfectly, accurately, and with extreme precision. The precision is really the realization that all things are possible to him that knows everything. What else is there? The information and energy conservation principles are therefore left quite intact because there is really no initial condition setting at all, just a single, all-knowing plan for our existence.
I will note that this is obviously a very brief paraphrase of a bigger idea, not a hypothesis, but it may be considered a jumping off point that needs further fleshing out. Or, to take it at face value, we’re just talking about one specific thought, and how it can rest on its own merit: The search for the mind of God comes down to the final realization that what we see has meaning and a need for explanation. That is enough to welcome wonder, for me, and to consider all the possibilities.
