    The will to live?

    There is no such thing as an original idea or concept but rather all knowledge and wisdom is gained by the reciprocation of the passing of knowledge from one generation to the next. Through the passing of this knowledge, thoughts and ideas are made manifest and we assess a value of truth, thereafter expanding upon, acknowledging, or disclaiming the validity thereof.

    Thus to borrow, proliferate and ultimately redefine the ideas that Maslow, Freud, Marx and others before them have expanded upon there is this thought that Maslow introduces with his law. Per Maslow’s law, humanity operates per basic “needs” that build upon or rather drive other needs, I concur but only to the extent of Maslow’s law that we do operate along basic “needs”, the rest of the thoughts that Maslow elaborated upon profusely looses validity solely by the exact conclusion he derived.

    The single human need that drives all others is the “will to live” thus this is the absolute underlining motivation that facilitates the primary propellers of life. Though not every person will manifest the “will to live” in the same manner, different facets of every persons life will exonerate this driver. The will to live closely affixiates itself with not only an individual but to all of humanity as a whole.

    This can be seen in about every facet of humanity, the “will to live” manifests itself in our fascination with living forever and eternal youth; these concepts have sparked many myths and folklore.

    Given the chance for physical immortality is for the moment nothing more than a fantasy, man still attempts and strives for ways to prolong, transplant or create life after death. With prolonging life it can be stated that man will (normally without hesitation), cheat, lie, steal, kill and do about any other thing under the sun to preserve their own life. We create funnel billions of dollars developing medicines to keep us healthy in an effort to prolong our lives, make us look younger (youth being the association with futility and life) and feel younger as well.

    Parents use their children as an extension of their own lives making them do the things they never could (play the piano, sports, med-school, etc…) thus facilitating their living on by instilling their failed dreams into their offspring.

    Marxism suggests that man even uses religion (a suggestion that religion is man made rather than anyone of them being an actuality) to fulfill this basic need. Man creates religions that either produces the concept of living forever or ones life becoming renewed; Christianity has eternal life after death, Buddhism/Hinduism has reincarnation, etc…

    The beauty of this realism is that it directly relates to all of the aforementioned qualifiers but appears so in an indirect manner. Thoughts & Ideas?

    I wasn't trying to suggest they would do it just to prolong their life but when placed in situations where one faces imminent danger or threat of their life ending their instincts take over and there isn't much they won't do because they are no longer using logic but rather using raw emotion.

    People are afraid of getting old and dieing...Simple as that.

    Plus some of the beauty's out there wanna stay young and healthy forever...So Yes they will do things to try and prolong their youthful appearences.

    Look at John Bastow! Haha Woo...and that one REALLY old guy that is like super active and "Muscles".

    Sure it's not a crime to want to look beautiful. But let it come naturally... I mean sure whatever Make-up and all that jazz. But I mean people don't need to get all these face lifts and plastic surgery. Go run around your block 3 times.
    You won't be able to stay beautiful forever. One day you'll just be a skeleton in a box 6 feet under the ground.

    BUT, Rather than focus our attention on the outside beauty..Us humans should focuz on inward beauty. Our Spirit...That's what really counts my friends.^^

    Thanks Pyroo. :]
