The smell of the inside of my nose is, thankfully, pleasant to me. The feel of my touch on my skin is pleasant to me. The air just hits me right, here. The fit of my environment to my existence. Here I am, I feel. It feels pleasant, it fits, 'fittingness', there is a word for this, the compatibility of my being to reality, suggests intelligent design. I can breathe air and my body converts it into energy. Can I feel the energy going through my body? Yes, I can, it feels good. It may just as well have felt bad, or painful, but it feels good. There is design in that. It could so easily and so completely become overwhelmingly painful, by the slightest change in the arrangement. Everything has to be just so.
