    Purpose is what we decide, the goals we set and our preferences towards the future. Some wish to help mankind, others are 'antagonists'... yet, it's that conflict of interests what makes life so interesting. The way is the true goal. Finding our purpose... maybe that's our real purpose.
    That explanation sounds kinda P to me. I would not have a problem with being a tool in a toolbox, after all I believe that I have been given specific characteristics and talents for something so why shouldn't there also be a certain plan for me and anyone else in this world? I find that fascinating. But I also believe in God and the concept of a calling. I find a lot of people's overly rational approach to purpose or even complete rejection of it rather discouraging and bleak. I know I wouldn't want to live if these kind of explanations were all there is.

    The position of modern science is that the world around us is an ilusion.

    If I put only one that means that I am talking about your post(that I have quoted)

    If I put two that means that I am talking about post above the quoted one (which is mine).

    And so forward.

    What I am saying is that reality exists. The thing is that the way we are experiance it is not giving us the real picture.

    that our earthly forms just can't conceive the whole truth
