If you just care to read below, you will find our purpose is the greatest good for the greatest number.
Haha you got me, when I saw good ol Charles name I immediately jump to conclusion. You have to forgive me, old habit die hard.
I'm really looking into the overall purpose of humanity on the grand scheme of thing. It's easy to see that contributing to society while persuing happiness is a justifiable reason to exist. After all, there are many evidence that if one puts the happiness of the whole first, everyone will eventually profit from the effort. A good example of this mentality is Japan who promote the well being of the country first and self second and have had good result while country like the Philippines who put leaders that put self first harm the whole as a result (not that I condemn my home country, I'm just merely making an observation).
However, when everything is said and done, my question is to what end are we making these efforts. What does the greater good of humanity have to do with our overall purpose as human. Certainly, science have explain many of nature's mysteries and as a result made some people's life easier. But it's an illusion to think that making life easier to everyone would result in happiness. Afterall, all it does is set a new standard of living that everyone will eventually get used to living in. It does nothing to explain the overall purpose of humanity in the grand scheme of things.

there is no purpose really. my life, and anyone else's, is just indicative of a greater purpose all outside ourselves: the universe as a whole, life in general terms, may have purpose. i'm willing to say that. what i think internally and personally may not. and the more i redirect outwards and align myself with those small glimpses of the universal, the more i might be in touch with what true purpose is.
