99% of the visible universe is plasma. Plasma becomes neutral matter if assembled correctly, which is what we are primarily made of. That is the stuff you can see. The stuff you can't see, such as black holes, dark energy and dark matter is professed to exist by physicists, and in rather large quantity. You can't see it so you can't determine its structure, however, it is responsible for most of our structure in the neutral matter world and observable universe. The existence of such fits their formulas. Per physics.
And you feel perfectly assured that your claim there is NO design, and thus higher intelligence to our existence is a perfectly rational assessment.
