    Default Is life worth living?

    There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide. Life is either worth living or it is not. - Albert Camus

    So guys, is that it?

    Life means alive, means living...that's the only worth of life. Living. It's in the definition.

    Then, humans get their brains, with weird abstract thoughts and starts to muddle up what 'worth' is/isn't....

    there is a pattern to this that seems universal.

    i) we are designed to be social/active, excluded from social activity life sucks.
    ii) we are designed to be loved, excluded from love life sucks.
    iii) we are designed to have a functioning immune system, when its compromised life sucks.

    when the above is positive life is positively inclined and such thoughts are unthinkable, when the above is negative life is negative and such thoughts are thought about. its a stress response to the environment, social and internal system as a balance to the way you experience situational life. the mind body connection.

    Camus said only what.
    Blake said what and when.

    Do not misinterpret.

    Check.
    And double check.
    Emotion is a deceiver.

    You do not need brains to know the answer.
    Every plant knows what is what.

    Brains did not bring about intelligence.
    Intelligence brought about brains.

    When the alternative is supreme nothingness, then yes, life is almost always worth living. If you're religious/spiritual, then the question becomes more complicated.
