Purpose of life

T-Mobile ryegrass
Feb 10

What’s the purpose of life? Yours or mine? Or anyone’s for that matter? Does it need one? Are we all blind - as a society - chasing things that we don’t really need? What is it all for? What’s the deal here? Anyone?

    My mom once said to me, “Life has no meaning. That’s why there’s love.”

    Play with my kid, play with my wife and be happy in life. Sometimes gorge on food, sometimes binge watch Netflix. Meet interesting peopke, make friends. Play at least a quarter of my 1000 Steam games. Read all scifi and fantasy books in the world.

      That's a good link. Still, I disagree with some of his points. Life has different meaning to different people. Insisting you are the only one who knows the right path is no different than religion.

      I think it’s similar to what someone said above, find love not purpose.

    Purpose in life: kiss your boss’s ass until you are the boss. Then you let everyone else kiss yours too.

      Do you mean prestige and power or do you mean the money that comes with it?

  • Eat, drink, procreate, increase your TC, boast about your TC on blind, get diseases, die. Rinse and repeat till you find your purpose.

      This means it will somehow happen but you don’t need to look for it.

    Life has no purpose. It is a journey. You keep moving towards things which you think will make you happy.

    Happiness. Work towards it. Feel elated. Search for your next happiness and repeat

      It’s not true. Happiness is a choice not an outcome. But even then its elusive and action dependent.

    None. Humans aren't any more special than mice. We got a higher level of awareness, as far as I can tell. But that's about it. People die. People suffer. While we don't, we believe we are special. But we need not. But we need not not either. So there you go. 42.

      all non-sentient life is an artefact of evolution. non-sentient life's purpose was to evolve sentience. only sentient life and thus only humans have a purpose greater than evolution.

      OP
      Your statement suggests that santient life is superior. I am not sure I believe that. Virus keeps changing itself to survive. That doesn’t make it more santient or higher purpose. Understanding of the universe is a noble quest, but that’s similar to answering any question to which we don’t know the answer to.

  • Try not to think about these questions too much they'll only put you in a dark place.

    The truth is, that there is no intrinsic meaning. However, you have the opportunity to assign meaning to things in your short time on Earth. You may decide to help others, accumulate a lot of shit, raise a family, pursue knowledge, etc. My only advice is to not be a complete dick and think about how your actions will affect the future so they can pursue whatever it is they find meaningful until the sun swells in size and consumes the earth.

    To pass on your DNA. This typically requires a sex life, which normally involves very complicated pairing and mating rituals. Then years and years of marriage. And you need money. Et cetera. But all those other things are really secondary. The only meaning to life is that you want to see your genetic material passed on to progeny, even if you are a cretin.
