    Question Reason for living

    I've been thinking for awhile now, what is our as in humans, reason to live i've been thinking about it for awhile and never decided to really talk about to any one. I'm not trying to kill myself or anything like that just wondering.
    LIVE A LITTLE, BECAUSE LIFE CAN BE SHORT

    In my personal opinion (And this is where I get called a Nihilist) I view that we have NO reason to live, litteraly to me, our lives are meaningless and have no real meaning. I find our existence pointless, and annoying. But what can I do? I have to accept it and deal with it. That's just me though, don't know about the rest. My two cents are in now.

    I totally get what you're saying. I mean whats the deal we work,make money that goes from one pocket to another and then reproduce kids that will do the same thing. Its so wierd if you actually think about it. Life is like one big game only theres no continues when you die. Depending on your situation the game can really suck, personally i'm trying to figuire out how to collect more gold coins.

    Glad you can see it that way, and how you described it is how I vaugly see it as well. As for getting more coins, there are MANY ways, knock someone out, sell "Things" (couhgcoughdrugscoughcough). It's easy lol.

    I think we each have to find our own reason to live, if we already had a purpose since we were born, things wouldn't be as fun. ^_^ I mean it's something each of us has to find and learn for our own.
    If they really had a desire to live, they would've been more aware of how easy it is to die.

    Re: Reason for living

    I want to live as long as my body, heart and soul allows me to...
    My life just barely began since I am only eighteen and I always look for the future...
    yes..my life has it ups and downs..who hasn't...but that does not mean I am going to give up on it entirely....no way Jose.....
    I have a list of things that I want to do before I die.and who knows what lays ahead for me in the future....
    I enjoy living and I have a very huge tactic for survival...i will do anything to survive and live as long as I can..and I mean anything......
    DO NOT MAKE ME UNLEASH MY INNER DEMON

    Re: Reason for living

    There’s two ways to look at this, the purpose for living as an individual and the purpose for living on a worldwide scale.

    Individually, you have to discover for yourself why you were put on this planet. It may take years or your whole life to discover this reason or reasons.

    On a worldwide scale, humans have a similar duty to animals in my opinion. To mature, find a mate, reproduce, and keep the human race continuing on. Of course, there are those lucky individuals who are able to affect the human race as a whole. That is the only exception in this regard that I can think of.
