    What is the meaning of life to you?

    Post by Thrice on Mon Feb 28, 2011 2:45 pm

    Contemplating life makes me realize a few points.

    1. If there is no after-life, this life is extremely trivial. We will never live long enough to see any tremendous changes in technology. i.e. our ancestors would shit their pants knowing we can carry 10000 songs in our wireless phone that uses touch screen technology. Advances in technology only occur when there are any large wars, which haven't really happened since the end of the Cold War. It is why our technology is progressing at such a trivial rate and is focused on making our gadgets either super huge (TVs) or super tiny (iPod shuffle comes to mind). Any next large scale war (WWIII) would just end in mutual nuclear destruction too be honest.

    2. It would seem that human relationships only bring about drama. Seeing how destroyed a lot of you guys + my friends get after coming out of a relationship, so dysfunctional/irrational, it makes me really wonder why should I even attempt to subject myself to such risks. Everyone states that their is potential "happiness" but I am perfectly fine with the way my life is right now. No worries, other than my academics. Friends and family whom I love to death. I am content, and a lot of you guys aren't.

    3. If we all committed suicide now, the only real difference is that the world would actually recover from all the shit we're putting it through. Eventually nature would recycle all the waste we produce and our world could turn back into something like Avatar. We are a very destructive, wasting race, which leads me to believe that colonizing other planets is probably similar to the Zerg infection. With so many video games predicting that space travel will only lead to conflict, why bother. This human need to survive is really inconvenient.

    4. Why do we exist? Was it "God's" intent for us to be this way? Religion has just as many fundamental holes as sciences does theories. There is no real reliable way to judge how we should be right now in society. Society seems to promote "equality" and "sharing", yet the giant gaps in financial wealth between humans is extreme. Why did we create money in the first place? Was it to help trade, or was it to create greed.

    I just feel that there is no real reason to live. 2012, or WWIII, etc. etc.

    So trivial.

    Life is a big joke, do what you want for now as long as it doesn't fuck with other people to much, as soon as ww3 starts and bombs are being dropped over here I'm offing myself if i have no kids by then

    i hope there isnt an after life
    or like i dunno, eternal awareness out of a mortal body sounds fucking horrifying
    like ic ouldnt even think of anything more cruel to bestow on a sentient being than never ending consciousness

    Well, the theory of "heaven" is that it's the best place ever.

    It's why I wouldn't mind something like non-consequential reincarnation.

    Screw dying when there is another war. Screw dying when something else wants me to die. I'm offing myself before I reach fifty, so I don't get old and have to wear diapers. There are other assorted reasons, having watched my grandparents grow old and turn into fleshy beings with very little left of their minds. But that's the biggest defining factor.

    yeah it would be cool
    kind of wishful solipsistic thinking though
    a lot of people think the universe expands and then after a certain point collapses and starts over

    maybe we're stuck in purgatory forced to live the same life over and over again
    or maybe different shit happens every time and we wont be brought back into existence

    its scary to think about
    but i figure we all know what its like to be dead
    like that state of unawareness we all come from before we were born
    we probably just go back to that

    I don't remember pre-life but i imagined it sucked.
    they say there's infinite universes so maybe something along those lines
    just hope something relevant happens
    or at least i get to meet some cool musicians that's all i ask

    Smirking so hard at the 'suicide solution' from op. So many of your points are flawed.

    Oh probably. These are just my thoughts, listening to music on four hours of sleep, getting ready to go to school.

    I can't really argue any of these points, other than relationships and love. Did my last breakup fuck me over? Absolutely. Worse than anything I can remember including my piece of shit dad. But, the feeling that you get 24/7 when you are actually truly in love is second to nothing in this world and I am striving to find it again.

    My music and my friends are the meaning of life for me. Music is my favorite polytheistic religion Very Happy
