Ask @GRIMACHU:

We "know" the universe started as an infinitesimally small spec that had an imbalance and eventually expanded in to what we live in today. Do you think we'll ever discover: 1) Why the imbalance occurred? 2) How the spec got there in the first place?

Why isn't a valid question without intentional agency and as to how it got there, that may not be a valid question either given the nature of time.

Since there's no evidence of what, if *anything*, created the universe, and the fact that we don't have the tools to "see" that far back to determine what the Prime Mover actually was, do you believe humans will ever discover it?

It may not even be a valid question, I think you'd first have to establish support for such a thing in order to investigate for it. There's no 'before time' for such a 'mover' to inhabit

And if you still think that there is no evidence just let me know!

There's still none. The Koran is far from clear cut on many of the things your silly book cites. A lot of post-hoc rationalisation and reinterpretation of poetic verses in a vague language to try and meet science (and sometimes getting that wrong). Other things were already known thousands of years before - by observant humans - others are just flat out wrong anyway and there's no salvaging them. So no, no evidence there.

Is there something you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?

Not really, no. My needs are - mostly - modest.

Have you ever done things you regretted? If yes, what?

Yes, none of your business, usually I vacillate between regret and defiance anyway.

God exists, are you gonna try to know the truth? Or you gonna keep saying that there is no evidence. Because there is no evidence of anything else that created the world and you and me!

Let's assume that's true, even though it's not. There's also no evidence of a god, so not sane or reasonable to believe that's responsible either.
You need evidence to support the god claim.

Would you rather live in Westeros or Middle Earth? Explain your answer.

Middle Earth. There's proper magic, hope and second breakfast.

What do you reckon your next Tattoo will be?

Huginn and Muninn, or a magpie, or something else game related to go with the dice...

Do you get angry easily? How do you react when you are angry?

Not really. 'Hot' anger isn't that serious. When I get REALLY angry it's cold and clipped. Watch out!

Networked digital communications technologies worm their way into everything - or, at least, are often forced into things. Is there a strategy of refusal of a deeply & chaotically networked world that doesn't look like the Amish?

Not really. It's the air we breathe now. Adapt or die.

How long does it take you to write a book, and what does a usual day's work look like? (Context: some people write in the mornings, some people do 500 words and walk away, some people just hammer at the thing day and night, etc

When I'm fit and well I can write anywhere betwee 2-10k words a day. I try to work in 45 minute bursts with breaks (when I can).
So... if writing a regular book, a low-word-count novel perhaps (50k words) you'd be looking at 25 work days, or 5 weeks, but that doesn't include editing, rewrites, writer's block etc.
