    Default Any real point behind questioning why we do stuff?

    It's the summer holiday for this university student, which means that I've got lots of free time.

    Yay!!!! Or wait....

    I'm starting to think, that maybe the 'mass' of people that do stuff without thinking too much about the reason behind their actions, actually have a decent way of living. Perhaps this group that make broad sweeping generalisations against, secretly realise that there isn't much point questioning.

    I spend time thinking about how things will contribute to my life rather than just getting on with things. Now I have to ask: Is there actually any real benefit to figuring out why we do stuff?

    Boredom? Perhaps if we find the main reasoning, the base behind our actions then we can find out more about ourselves.

    Mmm. Well I'm going to pick up activities since I'm sure many people will say: Go out and do something. I'm just surprised it works so effectively but even without doing things, I'm already thinking: So I'm just meant to distract myself with things I enjoy somewhat.

    It seems rather sad...

    That satisfaction is all about distracting ourselves from silence with fun activities. Yeah, that doesn't seem right for some reason.

    Edit: Wait a second I've somehow been sidetracked.
    The question was about whether there's much value in asking: Is there purpose behind doing stuff.

    I can tell your mind is racing. LOL ENTP shadow.

    The purpose behind stuff is satisfaction or need.

    My mind is constantly thinking - Just thoughts tend to sort of go round in circles like tadpoles in a pond. Not the most effective way of thinking.

    Guess I'll pre-occupy myself with some new activity for the time being, and the seek a new activity to pre-occupy myself with, then... seek another new activity to pre-occupy myself with... then...

    Default you're forgetting the fact that you really don't have a choice.



    ask yourself, can you really turn away now?
