Now, I don't even know why I am asking the Pit this but whatever, I am bored. A couple nights ago I was hanging out with my friends getting pretty drunk when my friend Kyle starts talking about his Philosophy class he's currently taking for college. We starting going on about why we exist and what happens after we die, stuff like that. I didn't really put my two cents because I was pretty out of it but last night I went for a late night walk and just started to think about it.

In my opinion, the meaning of life is just to live it. The good and the bad. To be able to feel everything from Love, Hate, Pain, etc. means you exist. Lets say you get hurt and you are feeling the pain from the injury. There is no one else to feel it, only you. Thus you exist.

I dont really believe in any specific religion or anything but I do believe that there is constant re-birth and a constant circle of things happening around us. My opinion on death is that it is just another aspect of life that everyone goes through. As for what happens after, I haven't figured out what I believe on that subject.

So, what are your guy's opinions on this topic? Ha, ha, I can't wait to see what some of you guys have to say. Also, I did a search and could not find a thread on this subject... At least not on the first three pages. If it goes into the religion thread than let me know.

There was a thread, fairly recently, which was rather large.

I really hope we are not eternal. I jsut can't see myself like that. I would get tired of just thinking and being there, even if its doing nothing.

I want to work in revelations, not just spin silly tales for money.I want to fish as deep down as possible into my own subconscious in the belief that once that far down, everyone will understand because they are the same that far down.

There is no universal meaning of life - at least if there is, we will never know it until we die.

YOU can give yourself a meaning for life (ex: to help other people), but there is no definite meaning of life.

That's the way I look at it.

That's totally right too. There's no way we'll ever know, nothing logical will ever prove why we exist. I think that's what the whole 42 thing was really about, having the most logical thing ever made try to find an answer, and for it to come up with a number.

I can't go into digital physics for at least another week. But all I'll say is that I don't really think a lot of people who believe in a computer-like reality, particularly people who believe in determinism don't understand just exactly how cold and shocking a belief that is.

If that's the case, then life is pretty crappy.

Unless it turns out that there's an afterlife, life has no meaning. Everything you do and all of the results of your being alive will be inconsequential after you die. That being said, you can decide to do whatever the hell you want with your life, but the only thing you'll succeed in doing by fulfilling your own ideologies will be making yourself happy, so we can conclude that no matter how much detail and ideological mumbo jumbo you want to disguise it with, the meaning of life is to make yourself happy. Go ahead, call me a hedonist, i don't care.

Life - the quality that makes living animals and plants different from dead organisms and inorganic matter. Its functions include the ability to take in food, adapt to the environment, grow, and reproduce.
