In a way, it'd be nice if life were as elegant as The Game of Life or if we had a rulebook. I've heard it said that the only 'point' of life is to experience it, and I'm mulling over whether that's true.
Well, experiencing it is what everyone does before they develop the illusion that it works otherwise.
Life is life. Life is being.
It's not doing, it's not having, it's being.
The things you list are not life. They are mere accessories that you might collect on the way. If you see that as life, then yes it will always be "Is this all?" and yes, it will always be missing something.
I get that sense, but I don't know what that is.

lol, I guess this is true. So, I guess objectivity in this regard is impossible, then? We're all just all alone, living in our own worlds..fundamentally disconnected from everyone around us?
not exactly my point here if I don't feel like my life would be complete unless I've visited every continent and seen in real life the scenes that I've imagined and held as happy mental worlds... unless I've gotten to experience the sahara and it's oases, until I've seen the rain forests of Papua New Guinea... until I've seen the fjords of southern Chile... this doesn't mean that these things are the things that are important to you. Your goals aren't particularly a driving force in my life... I don't WANT the kids, the house in the suburbs or anything of that sort
one's goals are one's own... very few, if any, goals can be standardized to fit every life
