ok seeing as sadow is beating me to all the philsophical thread ideas here two in one What is life? why is life? and How is life?
to me life is energy that needed to be converted but couldnt a third kind if you will that incorperats all energy as for the meaning to life well to quote FFIX
"We seek the meaning to life because we are mortal"
as for a purepes in life mine is to learn all that people fear and what people fear is the unknown but I have a primary purpas and thats to guid people to think for them selfs dont just believe what one religon your parents follow make your own detmansion about things not just about religon but about life humanity death ect...
as for death I'm not sure whos to say there is a heavan and a hell and I think a "God" would like us to question it and find out for ourselfs I myself dont fear death in fact I cant wait for it. I say that because I have a lot of questions about death what happens what is it? ect
