The universe works from the bottom up, like the unconscious that envelops our minds. This unconscious remains aware of all stimuli, without being aware, ready for a mosquito to become activated...

"If you awaken from this illusion and you understand that black implies white, self implies other, life implies death, you can feel yourself – not as a stranger in the world, not as something here on probation, not as something that has arrived here by fluke - but you can begin to feel your own existence as absolutely fundamental." - Alan Watts

In other words, if right now, you had the life you wanted, then you would want for another life then as well, because getting everything you want, it turns out, isn’t nearly as fun, or fulfilling, etc. It’s not about infinite possibilities you could choose, it’s infinite unpredictability, that if you could choose from the infinite, you would get irrepressibly bored. So in doing a thought experiment like this, if you are consolable at all, you might feel better.
