The lights in the sky are scenery

“Humans are inquisitive. That is a function of their humanity. The beings that built this universe did so because it was unthinkable that they should not. Creation is not what gods do, it is something that they are.”

“‘We built the universe didn’t we,’ she said. ‘Not us precisely, but the thing in us that makes us what we are. The thing that dreams while the rest of us are asleep.'”

from Strata by Terry Pratchett.
