There are some people that you have met in your life that have made you question the reason for their existence but how many questioned their own existence and really give it some thought. It is highly possible that there is no divine purpose for our existence. Or any purpose for that matter.
As you read this the first response is “what would be the reason for being created if there was no purpose”. If I then ask you “Why” does there have to be a purpose” your answer would be “Nothing else makes sense”. This response is sponsored by the mind’s need to “make sense” of everything, to understand everything. Your secondary argument could possibly be “we were given higher intellect for a reason”. That reason could very well ONLY be to survive. Lets think back to the beginning, before civilization, before languages, before kings , before clothes. We lived in caves, wild animals lurked, how could we have possibly defended ourselves from a lion on the prowl? We could neither outrun nor overpower we had to outsmart. This was our survival edge. As such we had ideas; thoughts on how to survive. We created tools to help us survive. Man is a tool using animal, with tools we are all, without them nothing.
Currently we are living to survive a world that we created. We need to buy food and shelter and from ourselves so we need to go to school in order to get a job that pays us enough to afford what was initially given to us. If we are unable to live within the rules of the system we may be rendered homeless. Homeless? What is a home. A structure to house all the things that we have bought and to protect us from the elements? Wasn’t mankind homeless in the beginning? Why do we need to be protected from the sun and the rain? It registers as a problem now because of the new rules we imposed on life in order to qualify our existence.
We may say we are here to “better the earth”. How can we better something which we do not understand? If we were indeed here to better the earth has ANYONE been successful in doing so? “Of course NeggZ look at all those great inventors and philanthropists that have made our quality of life so much better”. How as the knowledge of gravity or the invention of a lightbulb made the EARTH better? How has any invention made the EARTH better. We have only been successful in DESTROYING the earth. We may have succeeding in making the lives of those who can afford it more luxurious but SURELY this could not have been our “purpose”. Oh! but what about the abolition of slavery then never ending quest of World Peace and eradication of hunger and poverty? How is it even remotely possible for our purpose on earth to be to fix something that we BROKE? Please, someone, ANYONE explain that to me?
The religious among us may say we were put here to lead a life that is pleasing to our Creator so we may join him in paradise. Words were created several years after man was created, how would we have gotten the message, the rules on how to live from said Creator? Were they sent to us via crop circles? Diagrams of sort etched in the dirt? Or did the wild animals do an interpretive dance? Break the mold of how you were taught to think, think freely. It is quite possible and HIGHLY likely that there is no real reason that we are here. Most of our minds are unable to accept this or even entertain the possibility. This my friends is why EVERYTHING IS FUCKED UP.
