Realize how somewhere the power in a vacuum that is fulfilling its destiny of getting smaller, is by virtue giving rise to the space and matter you call real. Nature works by balance.
Take the theory of evolution and see how it is linear. Goo became us and we are the peak. See how this is unnatural.
Look at a mobile phone and tell me how an ancient Egyptian would make one. Look at the intricacies of the stonework in an Egyptian temple and tell me how you would make it.
Tell me how you would make honeycomb if given flowers and very hairy legs.
Tell me how you would convert sunlight and air into an epiphytic plant.
Nature is the intelligence and she shines forth in many ways, at different times, in phases, cyclic, not linear.
We could be at decline, we could be due a decline, we could well be at a peak, we could be still rising and unless you are very old indeed then you can't say.
