a better question is WHY ARE YOU HERE.
I always ask this. You can answer every question as in how did we get here or how did this and that happen, but it's so hard to answer why does existence exist.
why is there ANYTHING ANYWHERE? where is everything?
It may be the single most important question of humanity, but also one you can't dwell over.
I've spent many days dwelling over the fact that our existence in this universe is a complete fucking mystery, including the universe and basically everything we know altogether. We don't know why were here, there are no trails to follow to figure it out, we are left with nothing..not even a clue as to the real reason for all of this..
You just have to realise that this earth is nothing but a mere speck in this vast universe.. and the reason for our existance is extremely insignificant over the reason for this entire universe to exist.
We must first figure that out, and then break it down to why the earth and humans exist.
What helps me when i'm feeling anxious about my existence is simply thinking this:
I am a human, I live with other humans and my interaction with them makes me happy. To be happy is to be content with ones existence, and that is the ultimate goal for all humans. So appreciate everything that makes you feel love, happiness, excitement, and overall optimistic towards and you don't have to worry about why were here. We will never know, and you have to pursue the things in life that will make you happy.
For me right now it's jiu-jitsu, weed, and women.
I think nature wanted to experience itself. It sure is a horny little bugger...
To smoke weed
It's mind blowing. What's more so is pondering the universe and the dimensions above us.
To enjoy IT....and HELP each other enjoy it..
....pretty fucking simple...lol
To replicate and replicate until eventually we become perfect. It is in our genes to want to be a perfect species. Mentally and physically.
We are attracted to good looking people.
We are attracted to smart people.
We are not attracted to ugly people.
We are not attracted to stupid people.
This simple formula, after many years of the smartest and most beautiful people mating with each other, would create a perfect species. Eventually only the best and strongest will survive. I mean that is what the animal kingsom is all about. To further the seed into a better being.
Hard to explain... but it makes sense to me and that's all that matters.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You are only attracted to good looking people because that is what your tv is telling you.
You may be good looking in your 20's but by the time you are in your 40's those looks may well have disappeared (especially after childbirth).
Attraction to kindness, empathy, compassion...probably lost on people who rely on their TV for what to think, believe and act. Your tv tells you to go out and buy new clothes, because with those new clothes you will feel better. You judge others on how they dress, etc... you are missing the entire point of life and simply following other people's instructions. I actually feel pity for you.
So...the meaning of life. We are here to experience each other, and thus experience ourselves.
Nobody knows. Their could be an infinite number of worlds with life that asks the same thing. But we're never gonna figure anything out in our lives
To work, consume and die for our corporate overlords.
No man, you are judging me by a single post... and you feel pity for me? Hypocrite.
I don't look to my TV to tell me how to live. In fact I never mentioned my TV at all so I don't even know why that was brought up. Perhaps you are just trying to be anti-"the man", but I digress, you are putting down my theory without actually putting any thought into it.
I didn't say there was any one thing to compare beauty or intellect to. I do believe that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. That is me, that is you. You are attracted to beauty and intellect as am I. Everyone has their own opinions on what is considered to be right in their own eyes.
For you to say you feel pity for me after you asked a question on an extremly broad and opinionated topic leads me to believe that you are a very close minded individual and I find it to be very insulting. Please, learn to have an argument and don't shoot down any idea that dosen't agree with your's.
"...the proper moral purpose of one's life is the pursuit of one's own happiness or rational self-interest... The name "Objectivism" derives from the idea that human knowledge and values are objective: they exist and are determined by the nature of reality, to be discovered by one's mind, and are not created by the thoughts one has" - Ayn Rand
Free your mind, young padawan, and may the force be with you.
I'm here because ....., If I wasn't here then you wouldn't notice if I was here or not, but if I was here and you didn't notice me, then one would think, WAS I REALLY HERE ?
Cause earth won't destroy herself
Think when you die everything that you spent your whole life trying to acomplish gone just black i wish i would reincarnate into an alien
