Why so big?

Among the many mysteries of the universe is why it is so big. It is filled with zillions and zillions of galaxies. Each time we look we see more of them. Take some completely black speak of sky at night, one as big as grain of rice at arms' length, that shows no stars at all. Then drill down with a huge telescope, with multiple exposures equal to 55 hours, and see what you get. What you get is 200,000 other galaxies! This tiny speck is only 0.004% of the sky yet it contains 200,000 galaxies, each of which contains billions of stars and uncountable planets. What's the point?
