    A purpose?

    Do you think that we have a purpose, an ultimate goal, to our existence? I don't. But I'd like to hear your thoughts.

    An ultimate goal we might have is to be entertained. But that leads to nothing. A purpose we could have is this: Maybe we are entertainment or workers for other life. For example, they could be benefiting from our labor, or enjoying themselves by watching us go about our lives. But then, what is the purpose of those who watch us?

    I do not actually believe that idea, but it is possible.

    Okay. So what was the purpose before money?

    I kinda agree with you on the money idea. But I think that is more of a goal, not a purpose. AND, I think that we revolve around sex more than money.

    Purpose? Life, and "humanity", is made up of an unusually complex series of chemical reactions. Our purpose is to be a conduit for conversion of energy to states of higher entropy.

    I love being the blunt scientist

    I'm a christian so I believe in God and such, so that's kinda part of my meaning of existance and a meaning for humans. My meaning of existance right now to prove one of my friends wrong (Shallow) and to get the next week over and done with,

    As for a meaning for the whole of humanity? Maybe shutting up, sitting down and having a nice chat over tea and biscuits and deciding NOT to kill everyone just because you're different to them, and sometimes not even that.

    I agree with you on the money thing as well...

    Hell, yes.

    Anyway, one of the purposes in life, I think, is to make ourselves happy and to live a rich and full life. But who does that please? Us? That's all? And even if it did please someone on a higher level, what's the point of that? Do they please someone by enjoying themselves? And it goes on like that.

    I do think life revolves around sex, as well. But that's just a way to enjoy ourselves. And to create young of course. That could be another purpose, but then what's the point in that? It just means more people have to be made happy, if that's the purpose of life. Money also seems to make people happy, and for the third time, is there any point?

    For some sadistic bastard's enjoyment. 'course, what's the point in that? Read my post above for more info.

    Hey, maybe, we're beings like 'The Sims', but for beings on a higher level. The good players have rich businessmen and famous stars, footballers etc. while the bad players get tramps and failures. They probably have a server top hundred, top hundred richest, top hundred singers, top hundred sportsmen, etc.


    Top richest
    1. Username: Bill Gates

    Dunno why I did that...

    Now I'm getting way offtopic.[/code]
