Perhaps the only explanation for why we have the Reality we do have, the imaginary we all, all living things, construct and keep in existence, is that it is one that works. Who knows how many alternatives were tried and failed before the one we express was hit upon. If genes are as "selfish" as we are told they are, as singleminded about reproducing themselves at the cost of everything and everyone else, then it should come as no surprise that the critters those genes produce are of a similar self-centeredness. The fruit doesn't fall far from the tree.
