lfe... life is death... death is the end of life... but not of a relationship. it is the start of somting and the end of it... it is the only premanent thing in the world... to live and die! to exist is just a way of telling that u have a place in this world but doesn't mean that you lik\ve. so.... LIFE IS DEATH

I don't personally think life has a meaning. I'm not saying I want to die, but I think life is just a bunch of random events chance meetings lucky shots things like that. There's no meaning to it it just all happens. Millions of these random things make up a life.

The overall meaning of life is to be happy , and i say that in a very religious way, God created us to be happy , that is the purpose of our creation, but this life is a test , a test where you can chose to be happy or chose joy or pleasure instead. Note that true and real happiness can only be achieved through GOD, everything else is what philosophers of all time (not me , and yes love is here to just that it's good) called pleasure and joy.

Well there you go, if your's a Cristian that is the meaning of life.

If not , then stop bothering to search , there is no meaning to life , it's just a neat phenomenon , and what we like and what we want is just dictated by the way we evolved and the way our brain is composed, it's all under the effect of causality and we are not very different from a CPU's , just a lot more complex and adaptable , and choice, there is no such thing , there is only better , and our brain tries to always find the better solution in every "choice" we have

And that is the explanation if you are an atheist.

Also note that the causality explained above is also there for Christians , except that we believe that we have free will and happiness are an exception to causality, not being part of the fabric of this universe, but the rest is still the same, a lot is dictated by chemical reactions in our brain

I do a lot of philosophy so if you wana know what people over the ages and i believe PM me.

Personally people say you are meant to live your life true correct.
So why do those who believe in heaven get sad when their loved ones pass away they are sad. I mean if the afterlife is so good why dont we all commit harakiri. Or is it just a false belief or human nature?

The Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy was interesting. i watched it so much my brain over flowed with garbage. dammit now my mind is messed up!!!

Well, that only really makes sense when you consider what the question turned out to be;

6 times 9

Therefore, as Ford Prefect rightly said, "the Universe is a really messed up place."

For those of you who are unsure as to this reference please see "The Hitchhickers Guide To The Galaxy" by Douglas Adams (N.B. The radio series is the best form, then the book, then the film, which was a terrible representation of it)


The ultimately cynical reason (as has probably already been commented) is "to reproduce" - basically to ensure that the human race survives.

I'd say that the reason I live is to enjoy myself! I also want to help a few people along the way, and if I'm lucky I might just find out what the meaning of life is when I die.

What is is about humans that make us so curious as to why we are here? If the meaning of life was just to be happy, scientists, artists and musicians etc. would not have this mad desire to create and to understand things. Creation for it's own sake does not create happiness. Have you ever seen an artist trying to give birth to their vision? How mad it makes them, lost, frustrated, and disconnected with the world? Or give actual birth? Oh how painful that is... It is not something that you can roll up into a neat little philosophy, or catch phrase. A reason to live and the meaning of life are not exactly the same thing. I don't know why we are here, or what the meaning of it all is, but it is sure nice to be here...
