Purpose of life????

From your personal opinion,what is the purpose of life?

I did have other purposes, but Devantè has shown me the light.

To learn something, so the next life you meet your true love, she'll like you even better, since you will be even kinder and more interesting.

Hi all;

What happens if you don't like pringles? Can a person just settle on being hideously stupid, or hideously hideous?

Nothing light or lite about that advice.

Pringles. Of course. Very nice, Dev. If I were to say my opinion I would say reproduction of the species. Not that I would actually do it, that would just feel weird, gross and creepy. It makes me shudder just thinking about it. On the other hand, the pringles idea is good, I think I'll go out and get some.

Re: Purpose of life????

I think 'life' as we know it is really 'biological potential energy'

If you think back to the very first 'living' cell, how did it come about? Molecules arranged themselves in such a way as to create a structure that is self-sustaining - a structure that prefers life to death. Eventually this structure became more complex and evolved into the different species we see, but it must still operate on the same basic principles.

So I think our consciousness is actually a manifestation of this biological potential energy, and it is hardwired into our brains.

So if we were to create robots with the same basic operating principles, they would be just as 'alive' as we are.

I don't know exactly know why we are here to witness the universe, but I think that's how consciousness emerges.

I just quickly skimmed over your post, and I thought it read;

...I need sleep. My concentration levels are drooping a smidge.

... Back to pringles!

Re: Purpose of life????

I'm sorry you read it that way, Dev. LOL! I wouldn't do that, I'm reserved. Pringles. I have to remember to get some. They have assorted flavours, though. Oh well, I'll just get original.

Seems, everyone is missing the point. He didn't say what is the purpose of your life.

I think it's far more important to exist than to have a purpose.

We exist. It feels awesome.

Re: Purpose of life????

Awesome? Are you kidding me? I'd rather not exist at all. Except for my brain capacity, that's awesome. And it's expanding. Except the more I learn the more my memory fails. Darn you, memory.

Take it easy with that brain expansion. If your brain gets too fat then you will have to starve it.

Starve? Never! It all works out okay, the more my memory fails the more my psychic ability develops. An eye for an eye, basically.

I have to get that book. How much is it? Because if it is less than $100.00, it is a steal.

You mean a third eye for a third eye.

As Conan says:

The purpose of life:

To crush your enemies
See them driven before you.
To hear the lamentations of their women.

Re: Purpose of life????

Sounds like a stupid book, to me. As for Conan, I'd so agree. I should probably read something about him one day. Oh, I still have to go out and get those pringles. Btw, I thought it was a third wheel, or something like that?

That quote by Conan was derived from a quote by Ghenghis Khan, a barbarian who was monstrously good at war and little else.

Yes, I know him. If you were where I am right now, you'd here my other half laughing. I hate feeling like Two-Face, sometimes. But it's one of those things that makes me different from the rest of the world. When she combines with science or anything that can be used as a weapon, it's a dangerous mix.

Hi;

Now if we only could find out what is the purpose of purpose.

Re: Purpose of life????

That's the stupidest purpose so far! I think that the purpose of life is... to live the way that your want, and live differently each life you get. There. Wow, I've never typed something like that.
