So

I need some help doing my philosophy homework. This one takes some input on you guys.
All i need to know is the following:
1)Your age
2)What you believe the meaning of life is, or what in your in your life gives you meaning


Thats about it.

Thanks

Also i don't know if this should be in the philosophy thread or not, soooo, yeah.

2) Life exists in order to prevent nothingness, to progress. Once everyone is perfect, life will have no meaning, for there will be no more need to progress.

It shouldn't be in the philosophy thread I don't think...

Anyway, my age is 17 and finding the absolute meaning of life is just a stupid dream. Its up to you to decide what you are going to live your life towards, whether it be a single goal or a philosophy or way of life. I myself have chosen to trod the path of Rastafari.

2) This is deep. When i start thinking of life i think of what came before and what comes after. I think when we find that out, we know what life is itself.

I'm 17.
When I was younger I would sort of wonder what the world was about and stuff, and now that I'm old enough I can see that underneath EVERYTHING in the world, careers, money, music, love - there is one thing that every single one of us strives for, and that's sex.
So imo, obviously and originally we are ment for reproducing. Apart from reproducing, who knows? Surviving in general?
Modern age has changed it a lot. Now there has been given meanings like to be successful and make the most of your time etc. But I still see underneath everything, our purpose and goal will always be to have sex with people.

Edit:
I could also go to say that there is no meaning of life. We are here coinsidently through the formation of chemicals, that really doesn't mean anything. We have the same roots as everything else on our planet, rocks, metals/compounds/elements. What are their meaning? They don't really have a meaning, they're just there. Like us I guess.
So yeah I would also say, really, there is no meaning. We formed and well that's that.

I guess that's where "to give life a meaning" comes in, since there isn't really one, make one for yourself.

A common misconception. The only reason you see mostly those people is because they take every opportunity to post stupid shit and so their posts outnumber all the genuinely good post by about a hundred to one.

You know its funny, when I statred writing this post I had something to add to the discussion on the meaning of life but my mind has gone blank... Dammit.

1.) 17
2.) To make life what you want it to be.
But when I was high one day I guess this is what I thought the meaning of life was.

"The purpose of life is to overcome fear.
To overcome fear is to know everything which equals nothing.
Nothing equals fear which defeats the purpose of life.
If you don't fear then everything equals nothing.
Fear is equal to death.
Fear is controlled by emotion.
If we overcome fear there is no use "true" use for emotion, therefore we cease to exsist.
emotion equals the urge to know.
Having ultimate knoledge means to have no purpose which means we cease to exsist.
Having no purpose equals fear which is equal to death.
This pattern will never stop. It is endless. You can't break this cycle.
The Purpose of life is to not exsist."

2. To continue the cycle of life and death. To reproduce, to die. To give more than you take. To improve, to change. To make the world a better place for future generations.
