It seems to me you are talking about the https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fine-tuned_Universe and the https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anthropic_principle You also suggest deism, a creator who doesn't intervene.
If the universe occured as a fluction, in spin foam or a grid of lowest energy particles, or from the collision of branes in hyperdimensional space, or whatever, it will seem that the fundamental laws were quite precisely focused to make that generate somewhere with the possibility of the emergence of complex life, and minds.
There could be many other universes, with different constants, and no observer to see them. We may in future be able to explore these mathematically. It could just be randomness, on a huge scale, but in a huge probability space.
Property dualism may point to information being as fundamental as energy. Relationality. In this sense, minds or mind-stuff may be an even deeper aspect of the universe than a specific set of the fundamental constants. Gravity acting on a particle is the net effect from the whole universe (all the forces are thought to extend infinitely, everywhere in the universe), it's angular momentum is in relation to the whole universe (only exists relationally), so there is a holism about the universes information where it's all in every particle. In that view, there is a potential, an imminent, possible unity of the universe into consciousness.
David Deutsch mentioned in The Fabric Of Reality someone elses theory that a Big Crunch could create an infinite number of 'bounces' in finite time, which could be used computationally to create an infinite simulation. This illustrates how this possible unity doesn't have to be in terms of a single identity, even if it 'designs'.
'Intelligent creator'isn't explanatory. It just invites, from where? Randomness? A foundational unity that became fragmented? In what sense could that be described as intelligent or creative? It becomes the Argument From Design, applied to something that seems more like the Tao. It's better to just look at the universe, than jump to what we know is a psycological preconception, to see a thing like Us, which doesn't even contribute anything.
