I am 25 young working professional, college educated, work for a fortune 25 company, have good looks, make good money, have a beautiful girlfriend, a nice car, house everything. Yet I feel empty... I don't know why human beings have a purpose or is it that we make purpose to give life meaning... I've been thinking about death,... is there really an afterlife or is it that one day we die and not know we are dead (i.e. like when we are sleeping). I am a man of science so I don't really believe in religion so don't bother... what is conciousness, why are human beings given free choice? A female friend of mine committed suicide she was very attractive and exceptionally talented, I had no idea why, it just didn't make sense... so I've been pondering death lately... I feel that there is nothing left for me to accomplish... I wake up go to work, get paid, pay bills, spend time with the girlfriend, its an endless cycle probably until I retire but is this what life is about?
