anthropic principle

The principle that present conditions have “backward predictive” power about past circumstances.  So named because the universal “present conditions” are those that support human life on Earth.  Often misunderstood; just because past conditions “must” be consistent with the present (a future constraint) doesn’t mean they “must have” happened in the first place (a past or predictive constraint).
