We don't all have 10 fingers. Some of us have 12.

John Roth

Because that is what works for us. Try to imagine your hand with less or more fingers and see if it would still work so well.

I think this is a question for evolutionary biologists, not the MT.

Actually someone once asked Michael this precise question before, and I think the context of it was - if our universe is based on number 7, why do we have 5 fingers or five toes on each hand/foot. And they answered something along the line of "whatever works best".
