What is the meaning of life?

2 posts in this topic

Since the ancient times, philosophers and scientists are looking for the answer to the question about the meaning of life, but do not find a universal answer. It is obvious that only a crazy senile is able to spend his life searching for a universal formula being not able to formulate, what he is involved in! If there were no other sciences, where people were doing the same thing, it could be forgiven, but it is not -
the search for common algorithms and the laws of nature
making it possible to quickly transfer the knowledge and learn
, is the basis of any progress.

If we simply separate animals from people, a more philosophical answer "to a fool" will be already evident. We improve the speed and accuracy of logic of thinking, the frontal lobes with no senses, and not like animals adapt the body to the surrounding world.

For example
, if knowledge was passed not in the form of formulas and algorithms but being based on the experience of the ancestors, then the every next generation would have been forced to live twice as long as their fathers and mothers.

Let us forget about the delusion of "Aristotle" or force them to give us their works in the form of formulae and graphs! Long live the
and the psychology determining the life and relationships of humans!

Well, although many people will say things like reproduction and the continual survival of the species of a whole, there has to be something more than that. The human mind is a complex organism that we don't fully understand, and this is where theology is tied in. Depending on your religous belifes you will belive in different things, and wars have been thought over such things. In order to understand the meaning of life if you could find it, you would have to fully understand all humans, all their emotions and all their struggles.

This is how hard it would be to comprehend all people and their desires on the planet.

There are approximately 7,000,000,000 people on the planet. In case you’re wondering, that’s 7 billion. Now stop and think. You have your own troubles, actions and emotions. Your entire life history, the things you have done and achievements you have accomplished can be applied to seven billion people. Now, you can’t just say the word billion and fully understand just how large it is, think of this. You take 672,768,000 breaths on average in your life time. This number isn't even close to a billion, as you would have to live well beyond the human life span at 119 to take even a billion breaths. Then, you would have to live that time seven times over to match the population of the world so you would have to live to 832 years to breathe the same number of breaths as there are humans in one particular point in time, not to mention all the new humans being born. All of your emotions, pride and other things are all different and unique among 7 billion people but the reverse is true as well. When there are that many people, what good will one more do, I mean you only make up 1/7,000,000,000 of the human population. Everyone wants to make their mark upon the world and history shows us time and time again that this is true. Achilles was given the choice of living the happiest life imaginable among family and people he loved or dying and being remembered in history. He, like many others, choose to be remembered throughout time. So let’s just leave it at the fact that 7 billion is very large and that there are many others with thoughts, desires and love just as potent as your own.

Knowing that there are tons of people out there all wanting to leave their mark on the world, one could argue that the meaning of life is exactly that. But heres the problem, not everyone wants to be remembered. There are some people who don't want to be known, and here is where that long paragraph i wrote comes into play. There are just too many people with too many different answers to that question for one person to be able to comprehend the full meaning of life. So, people belive in religion instead. (I know thats not the only reason people belive in religion, but it is one of many)
