I second Russell on this and would add that Leibniz's question "why this
and not some other" (or whatever the exact quote is) really bring the
question to a head. I would also point out that the so called "initial
conditions" and "fine tuning" problem is a version of this.
Personally, I think that we should take any anthropic principle as a
constraint on the 1st person aspect, not on any notion of 3rd person.
