    Default The Purpose Of Life

    Some people say that life just is, and that the individual person gives it purpose.

    However, if life HAS a purpose, a UNIVERSAL purpose, what could it be?

    There would be a universal purpose if 'purpose' was universal.

    Otherwise, such a thing would be of such conceptual complexity as to be incomprehensible to us.

    Why not something simple like "to create more life."

    Wake up, take a shit, go to work, come home, pay bills, sleep. Eat and drink liberally.

    Does that apply to ants? Microbes? Life on other planets?

    I would say the one universal factor among all life is work.

    The purpose of life is to propagate life.

    We are here to save the world. You essentially have two ways of doing this. 1) reproduce 2) spread some epic humanity-saving and propagating memes.
