This experience is as rapture, which is beyond heavenly words to describe. Only for one moment do we feel like we have experienced a little slice of heaven on earth. It is confounding as it is in effect beyond description.

    The purpose of my life is to question. I don't want a definite answer to anything in particular; my goal is to always see the infinite possibilities.

    Surgeons replace one of your neurons with a microchip that duplicates its input-output functions. You feel and behave exactly as before. Then they replace a second one, and a third one, and so on, until more and more of your brain becomes silicon. Since each microchip does exactly what the neuron did, your behavior and memory never change. Do you even notice the difference? Does it feel like dying? Is some other conscious entity moving in with you?

    The purpose of my life is to become as conscious of myself AS the Universe as possible. This means that in so doing the next step becomes obvious and attainable. From the current evolutionary stand we have...it seems to me that Life on Earth is ready to flower and throw forth seeds...to throw forth life into space literally...the moon, mars and beyond so that Life may be secure from a single accident...thus the Consciousness (i.e. INFORMATION) of the Universe is preserved. I am a T-Cell in the bloodstream of the Universe...ever advancing on Chaos and ignorance!

    I don't know what my purpose is, or if I even have one.

    It's simultaneously disturbing and liberating to not know this.

    This can be illustrated by its opposite when we deliberately turn off the meaning part of our brains and everything comes as a surprise.

    Of course we can't live in a world of surprise all the time and we quickly revert back to our default position of meaning and purpose.

    But it is refreshing and relaxing to deliberately let it go for while, and then return as if returning home.
    I can't speak for others, but this is certainly true for me.

    Nice observation, Victor.

    I think the purpose of the existence of any living thing is simply to live out and fulfil the potential of its inherent nature. To be itself. Which I guess it already is, but for humans it's more complicated. E.g. A tree strives to be a tree. Wherever the seed drops, it will strive to live out the potential in it, whether it has to overcome less than suitable soil, bend this way or that to get the best light, etc. It simply is itself. And human beings strive to be who they are as much as possible. Just it is much more complicated than being a plant or animal because part of our nature is to have conscious awareness of a level of existence that plants or animals are not bothered about. Plus we have choice between what is good for our nature and what is not good for it. Whereas a tree cannot consciously do something against its own nature. It can only be a victim, like if its environment is polluted and it sucks up chemicals from the ground that are bad for it.

    I'm not created for a specific purpose. That means I'm allowed to choose my own little goals in life.

    I want to be someone awesome. Someone who is remembered. I tried to become a great physicist and discover new things, but that didn't work out.
    When teaching, I want to be a great teacher, not an average one. I want my pupils to learn and to get interested in this whole wide universe around them. While writing, I want to be a great writer. I want to be a great wife to my husband, a great friend to my friends. If I become a mother, I want to be a great mother, too.

    It's ambitious. I know. I do the best I can do. I've let myself down more than I can count. But I've got lots of help with it.
    I'm rather a good secondary school teacher than an average professor.

    My purpose in life is to find the purpose of life.

    Happiness.

    That's my self-assigned purpose, of course. There is no cosmic or divine purpose for people. But, the fact that happiness is my purpose comes from innate, physical properties that I had no control over, and predated the existence of my mind.
