What is the Purpose of existence?

Apparently 'we', the human race are but a blip on the universe radar. We know this due to our exploratory nature and conscious awareness.

However, according to scientists the Sun; our solar life source will burn out sooner or later (much later as it happens). This being the case and our critical reliance on this object to support our own self-destructive activities then what purpose does the rest of the universe serve?

Long after life on Earth has vanished and crumbled back to a dusty particle state. What is the purpose of the universe and everything within if not to be known or explored by some life force?

Hope everyone is having a good weekend by the way :)

i have thought about this very deeply and regretfully, the answer is not very deep at all.

human's purpose of existence is simply to pro-create. it's as simple as that.

we are all born with an urge to reproduce and to look after our offsprings.

Who said we are suppose to stick around on Earth?

10,000 years later, and we will have destroyed quite a few earths I suspect...

problem is because of our self awareness, we look at survival as selfish act, its about self survival in our heads, when the reality of it is survival is about continuation of the species,

human is special in the sense that their intelligence far surpasses that of any other living creature (known to man currently). of course, some human aren't so bright......

irony here is that you are suggesting that others aren't too bright

our purpose is to serve mother earth along with every other creature on earth and when she tires of us and our wars and the damage we are doing she will crush us like ants......

I often think it's sad that we; as a species; are more interested in blowing the hell out of each other than exploring further/deeper than we have. Just think - all the money that's been spent on weapons and wars would've built many space-stations (or jump stations) and we could stretch across our galaxy. Telescopes are great 'n' all but to actually colonise another planet - to know that we have extended beyond our boundaries and can prosper. Wow. We are akin to a virus, after all!

I've always wanted to just know if there is some other form of 'intelligent' life out there within my lifetime. Sadly, the reality is that time is running out and progress is just too slow. I may just still be around when the 'Mission to Mars' kicks off but that's all in the hands of fate...

As to the original question: I don't think there is a "purpose" to existence. It's just chemical reactions isn't it? As with most (all) biologics, there is creation, exsistance and death. No purpose - just a cycle.

Ah, what the hell do I know eh? Here's hoping we all have a productive, happy exsistance.

As an individual it should be to live a fulfilled live and have some offspring. As a collective it should be to carry the species forward, I.e reproduce sustainably and the ultimate goal to explore space - creating many earths so we are not a species on a single planet (hedging bets against asteroid collision or nuclear accident etc), as well as protecting animals and plants .- we are at the top of the food chain, it should be our duty. (until other life forms become apparent! Then our role could change).

The reality is very different, our species is divided into many forms, some have values and mentalities centuries behind the most advanced nations. Our species will not only kill itself through war but the whole planet, overpopulation, lack of resource, lack of development of technologies, over farming and too much focus on money/power/fossil fuel resource than developing technology. There's far too much protectionism by countries, corporations, institutions and individuals.

Apart from the bit about killing the planet I agree with the whole of your your second paragraph
So surely on an intellectual level the last thing you should be doing is having kids ?

There is no purpose to existence and the doesn't need to be. The universe doesn't need to get any more complicated.

isn't this whole flat earth thing abit of a myth. didn't the ancient Greeks or Egyptions know it was round a worked out its circumference. while most people with any knowledge through the middle ages knew it was round. wasn't it just the catholic church was tried to insist it being flat for a while ?

Wow ! i actually had a dream last night about someone posting this,that is really spooky.
In the dream a god-like voice spoke and said 'The answer will be revealed in the 39th comment'.

Are you sure the dream didnt tell you the thread would be spammed at post #38?

There is no 'inbuilt' or inherent meaning to life. Rather, it's what we choose to define it as.
