i sincerely believe that the meaning of life is to follow your conscience.
what do you guys think?
to me it is treating others as you would want to be treated with compassion respect understanding
I think a lot of people get the meaning of life and the purpose of life mixed up. I don't know what the meaning is, but I think the purpose (or one of) is to do the best you can in things that matter.
On second thought, perhaps the meaning of life (in a literal sense) is simply "to live".
eating, drinking, fucking, loving, pissing, shitting, fighting, thinking, dreaming, planning, sinning and similar activities.
To live the American Dream! :huh: Liposuction and pastic surgery
I agree with Tobes, I think you find your own meaning to life; whether it be some kind of religion or faith in science (or just living). Your purpose in life is your life's goal and whatever gets you through the day; whether it be your job, living for family and friends, etc.
life doesnt have any meaning. u get born, grow up, work hard trying to achieve the best for yourself then still have to die. generations come and go and awhile after we die, we're forgotten.
From a strict biological standpoint, the meaning of life for all animals is to successfully reproduce to pass on our genes.
From a philosophical standpoint, there is no ultimate objective meaning to life.
I believe it's personal. Sometimes we'll get a collection of people who believe on the same lines on their meaning of life. In the end I believe you make it what you want it to be.
the meaning of life is.......42....
To win this game.
There is no meaning. It just is. Much like everything else.
Considering I have 4 boys, I certainly hope that is enough for me.
I think you make your own meaning/purpose.
People.... there is none. Shit just happens. So many people are obsessed with finding the meaning or purpose to life. Then you wake up one day old and near death and realize life, and it's purpose or meaning,while you were searching for it, happened and you missed it all.
The purpose or meaning is.... just to be. That's it.
Now off my mountain top. I believe Bill Gates was in line behind you and needs to ask a few questions :dry:
And I agree with Tobes too.
I just keep wishing for the impossible- that I was never even born and stuck struggling, suffering and trying to make the best of it. Bleh.
Indeed. Life has no meaning. It only has what you give life.
If you have a piece of wood, it does nothing. And then you use it to look pretty, it then has meaning, the only meaning life has is the one you give it.
i'm pretty sure that if life had no meaning other than whatever comes to your imagination, then there wouldn't be anything wrong with killing people or anything like that. does nobody think that God plays a vital role in why we're all here, where we are all going, and where we came from?
The meaning to life to me is to breathe Everything you can do in life starts with a single breath, the rest always follows and ends with your last
Archon says it perfectly. The only meaning something has is one that we give it.
That said, I don't think there is a meaning of life, considering that this is a fundamental question we have been asking for centuries, probably millenia. If the smartest and most philosophical of humans haven't come up with an answer, it's safe to say that there isn't one. At least not some profound, mystical sentence or group of sentences that amaze us with it's wonder and insight.
