What is the meaning of life? (what do you live for?)





I live because of my natural instinct for self preservation and taking care of my family.  If I weren't healthy and didn't have my family, then my life would be meaningless.  If you were to study and observe the behavior of living organisms, then you will discover that life has no purpose.  Life simply follows its natural instincts for self preservation and the preservation of its own species or the propagation of its genes.


What seems to be the purpose of life is life itself, or to say it more clearly:

  a. living

  b. future life

  c. better forms of life in next generations (on statistical terms)


Life itself has no purpose, just happens!


The human mind that is endowed with a fair amount of logic and

the capability of believing as real its own productions is just in love with

the concept that any complex thing (as life) must have a purpose and

maybe also a meaning.


Each human being  gives meaning to his own life if he is  fortunate enough to live without big oppression, to be more or less free of ilness and to have a good education.

It is an extremely  fortunate fact that life starts for us when we do not have

the power of taking decisions, otherwise too many would be scared of a world so

overwhelmed with injustice, wars,  and problems related to the environment, that is,

with the future of life itself.
