    Don't have time to watch it right now...

    My current theory...

    Dark Matter and its counterpart Dark Energy are the fabric of the Universes, as in plural. It would naturally have a repulsive force nature to avoid collisions. So in a typical anthropic description we exist because it exists. (That's the short version)

    You're actually not too far off from the current scientific understanding.
