There are patterns in the Universe.
The Brain is a pattern-recognition organ.
Universe rewarded genes that produced Brain.
Because Universe has patterns, Universe has Brain. A universe with no patterns, no physics, no gravity, no stars, of Entropy and alone, could have no Brain. A universe without brains could have no patterns. If Brain, then patterns. If patterns, then Brain.
But our Universe has physics. Intelligence is inevitable.
We are not the apex. We are not the only brains.
Humanity occupies a point so small as to be nearly invisible, an instant of infinitesimal flicker in an expanse so eternal and infinite we can not fully comprehend.
Universe does not care. Others are rewarded.
Because there are patterns.
There will always be Brain. Intelligence is inevitable.
