The meaning of life is that there is no meaning. You have to give it worth yourself and just accept the fact that usually in under 100 years you will die and nothing you did will actually matter.

You will live for 80 to 100 years and collect a bunch of trivial shit, stick it in a giant box (house) and then die, and the government that doesn't really matter either will probably take all your things unless you pass them on to someone else that means absolutely nothing in the grand scheme of things.

We are in fact, thoughts. Nothing we say or do truly matters unless you yourself give it meaning.

You have to search within to find your own reasons for life and happiness. Right now I'm still stuck on the realization that the past 21 years of my life have been nothing but a big lie, but I'm dealing. For me knowledge and exploration of the world seem to make me happier living here.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

You're here because you know something.
What you know you can't explain,

You've felt it your entire life.
That there's something wrong with the world.

For every beginning there is an end, and for each end, a beginning.

Energy can not be created nor destroyed.

Reincarnation? Believe what you will about life.

So true!  Is death a new begining?  I beleive that it might be.  A new lesson on life and love and living.

Quote:


Energy can not be created nor destroyed.



Also true!  Perhaps our lifeforce, (our souls?), are truly ageless entities of energy that have neither been created nor will ever be destroyed.  They are a part of the collective energy that some call 'God', or Mother Earth.  Our bodies where our souls inhabit us, are simply made up of biological matter.  Cells and shit.  It's our soul that makes us laugh or cry or fall in love.  It's our soul that makes us feel.

Quote:

Reincarnation?  Believe what you will about life.




Everyone does and no one is wrong.  I beleive that when I have learned what I have come here to learn... or completed the challenge that I set for myself before I came to this incarnation, then I will go back to where I came from.  The collective energy...or home.  Once there, I can prepare myself for my next challenge, my next life.

I find it hard to beleive that we are here for no reason other then to rot up and die.  It's far to beautiful and there has been far too much learning thus far to just go to waste at the end.  All my feeling and love and pain doesn't just dissapear when I do.  It has to continue to exist somewhere, because you can't destroy energy right?

It's impossible to learn everything that there is to learn in one incarnation, it's too much!  And how can we evolve into something greater if we don't learn what we can each time we are challenged?

So back to the original question that plagues us all...What is the meaning of life?  Well I am going to have to say that it is different for everybody.  Each one of us hold a different purpose within ourselves.  A challenge, or lesson that we put upon ourselves in a place where time doesn't even exist.

I think I know my purpose, but I'm not entirely sure how accurate I might be.  If my purpose is a major, I may have a few minors on the side.  I'm sure that it will all become much more clear in retrospect, it always does!

:grin: :heart: :grin:

If you decide to not have kids, what is the purpose of life?

If you decide not to have kids, you have given up on the primary purpose to Life. You could still redeem yourself by producing more Life some other way.

Because, simply, the purpose to Life is to produce more Life.

i disagree.. it's a purpose of life, but not the purpose..

what about adopting a child that doesn't have a home instead of making one of your own?

as far as the purpose...

to live love and learn :laugh:

Annnnnnd I had a light saber and my friend was there and I said "you look like an indian" and he said "you look like satan" and he found a stick and a rock and he named the rock ooga booga and he named the stick Stick and we both thought that was pretty funny. We got eaten alive by mosquitos but didn't notice til the next day. I stepped on some glass while wading in the swamp and cut my foot open, didn't bother me til the next day either....yeah it was a good time, ended the night by buying some liquor for minors and drinking nips and going to he diner and eating chicken fingers, and then I went home and went to bed.---senior doobie

When I say "Life" I am not just refering to HUMAN LIFE...but Life in general.

For Life in general, the MAIN purpose is to procreate. Many Lifeforms live just long enough to procreate and then die...if that wasn't their main purpose, why would they die as soon as they've accomplished it?
