    The universe has some laws tht do not change.

    For every action there is a reaction. Solids displace liquids displace gasses. Every living thing is based on fear as it's most bsasic emotion.

    Beauty is based on a closeness to the ratio of one to [one point one six]. Nothing is infinte except time but that does have a beginning and a now point.

    Everything can be understood with the right foundations. There is nothing that is subjetive and only objectivity exists. There is no free will only reactions and takin the path of least resistance.

    The meaning of life is to reproduce - all culture is based on sexual urges after fear has been neutralised because we have maternal instincts and we have hormones that dominate our thought patterns. If you do not want to reproduce you must be busy with something else. If God gave you sex organs you must satisfy them as a force just less powerful than the needs to eat and drink. This is because the cells will live on in the next generation you create with your cells - a continuation of your own life with the life of another. Reproduction is the way that we survive, like sending out a scouting party into unknown terrain, but our conscious doesn't realise this and there is no conscious thing to explain this, but, take my word for it, it is a primal desire as it is a physical need, and it wouldn't be a need if it were not some sort of survival trigger.

    Reproduction is of course a way to let the humanity surviving, but it is not the way to survive. Well, if we gave birth, we will not become immortals, and it is false, if I well understood, that when giving birth we rebirth, or “continuation of your own life with the life of another”, because if it was, I will have the same portrait of thousands of people, being as they are; because thousands of humans share with me the same ancestors, if thy thesis was right and logic.

    And why “the meaning of life is to reproduce”? Why is reproduction the only matter in a human being life? Well, it is merely biologically. But in the philosophical case, it is not. Humans have the capacity to understand what others creatures cannot. And metaphysically, humans are god’s picture; they can comprehend whatsoever others creatures cannot.

    Well if it is, philosophically, we should be associated with animals (expression, no conscious). And sorry for being so direct, but we are not like animals; we have a consciousness who can explain everything around us.

    I believe that “the meaning of life” varies from each human. Perhaps my objective of live is to draw and thy to sing.

    So you would conclude that (say) Kentucky Blue Grass or an English Oak tree, has to deal with emotions; fear being their most basic? Or perhaps would you not include such as these, as 'living things'?

    Beauty is a purely subjective consideration, so please explain how this statement fails to conflict with your next?

    I would argue that subjectivity is the only influence that counted in, and contoured the vast majority of choices ever made under the guise of humanity.

    Please define your use of the term 'infinite', and explain how such a conceptual tool, which can at best be described as a human device, and by such definition; finite, can possibly be considered, pending your definition - infinite?

    So you cannot recall any time you (personally) chose to reject (a) path of least resistance, in a far nobler selection; for the path towards greater or more effectual result? That would indeed be very sad and a great shame, AND amazingly enough, also - a clear definition of subjectivity!

    So it would be your conclusion that there is only one way to reproduce huh - sexually - that being physically? What about the reproduction and continuation of spiritual concepts, such as intellectual ideals and models?

  6. #5 Purpose of life - science shows all life has a purpose

    There are many purposes to life - physically finding food, water and shelter to simply stay alive, to rearing offspring to mentally learning things to help achieve this.

    However, there is one fundamental purpose underlying all these. Science shows there is something common to all this, to all you see, do and experience. When looking for the fundamental reason for your existence, the purpose of life and your individual meaning in it, you need to start at the most fundamental level of everything. At its most fundamental level we know that everything, yes absolutely everything you see and experience is made of energy - and everything is ultimately the result of this energy, its flow and interaction.

    One of the most important and fundamental principles of energy is that it doesn’t like differences. It doesn’t like sharp variations in temperature, pressure or chemical concentration and works out ways to reduce and balance them. Energy flows from where it is concentrated and spreads out to become equalized or balanced. Energy concentrated in the sun, for example, flows and spreads out through the colder solar system as it balances throughout the universe. Some of the sun’s energy, its light, hits the Earth warming different parts of the planet to different temperatures. The resulting differences in temperature, air pressure and more are major factors in creating the weather. The various elements of weather, such as wind, are ways that nature tries to balance the differences—creating a wide and complex variety of environments as it does so.

    As energy initially flowed it joined with other bits of energy and created particles. Some of those particles bumped into and joined with other particles, and some of these joinings helped energy flow better. Some of these particles joined with others and became chemicals and then molecules. Some of these underwent more and more complex reactions, helping disperse energy even more efficiently. Some thrived, even replicated, as they captured and redistributed the sun’s energy. Slowly, but surely, molecules and compounds of increasing complexity formed and helped energy flow even better.

    This process built upon itself, with chemicals and molecules mixing together and influencing each other to form complex cocktails that eventually formed primitive cells. Over time, some of those developed into living organisms and life as we know it. The chemistry was very important, but it was the energy flow underlying those chemical reactions that was key, say scientists, and human life is ultimately derived from these complex cycles of energy flow and transformations. It is not genes that are the fundamentals of life; they are just a replicating mechanism. Genes are turned off and on by energy and it is the flow of energy that is the fundamental to life.

    Human life is one of the most effective ways to disperse energy, as one of the most common ways for energy to flow and spread is as heat—and we produce lots of this.

    Energy is integral to life, to your life. Every moment of your existence your body works to keep energy flowing. Every second you breathe air, you add food and water to replace the energy you use. Everything you sense or do is connected to the flow of energy in one form or another. You are so used to this energy flow that you hardly notice it. It is the ultimate process of your life. If your energy stops flowing you die: flowing energy differentiates living creatures from dead ones.

    As such, the ultimate purpose of all life—including human life—is to help energy flow and balance.

    Is the flow of energy what people sense during spiritual experiences? Are spiritual experiences just a natural phenomenon of energy flowing that we occasionally sense and have attributed greater meaning to?

    Whatever you believe, whether you agree with the science or not energy is integral to all life - your life. More details at www.meaningoflifebook.com

    Well I for one, think guymckanna makes a couple of decent points which are worthy of a few more minutes of my attention. I have quite a few questions however, such as how the energy joining other bits of energy managed to create in the process; particles?????
