>>567819473
It's hard to explain. This is only my personal interpretation. No one has ever told me "what the point of living was."

When I think of getting to know oneself, I think of becoming more self-aware, knowing about your own interests and dislikes, understanding the goals that you wish to achieve but at the same time knowing all the fears you'd want to avoid along the way. You should be able to have that mindset that you alone are the most awesome fucking person in the world because of the thought that no one will ever understand you more than you do. You shouldn't let society's secondary opinions dictate what you should do with your life because they're not in control. You are. You need to be able to realize that you are one in an infinitesimally large number, and no one will ever be as fucking awesome as you are.

Purpose and worth are concepts created by people. Anything that has worth or purpose does so because it has worth or purpose to a person.

If you ask if we are worthless you seem to ask if we have worth beyond the worth we bestow on each other. Which we don't.

This.

This universe supersedes the world of man.

It is the nature of man to exist in solemn destitute, for his perception dictates his thoughts, which has granted him the ability to form questions, to which he finds himself utterly unable to answer.

Our brains create patterns. That's why we can imagine faces in inanimate objects. But the complete mystery surrounding this universe. It's patterns, and laws, but with the lack of meaning, which takes all other meaning away, leaves us confused and afraid. Therefore we cannot find an answer to life, other than: Life arise, and life succumbs all by the hand of nature, everything else is just for the thrill of the ride.

I have no idea how you came to that conclusion.

If something or someone matters to you for whatever reason (rational or emotional) that thing or person has value to you and thus is not worthless.

The same thing goes for you. You are not worthless just because there is no higher power bestowing purpose. You matter to someone and therefore you are not worthless.

>>567824027
i mean you are slightly correct in that there is no empirically scientific way to explore supernatural claims. it is left to philosophy to make abductive arguments for or against why these supernatural claims should or should not be taken seriously

There may very well not be a "purpose" (or "meaning" or "point") of your life. "Purpose" is incredibly vague anyway, so I don't see why it matters.

There is no absolute sense of scale though. Your existence isn't "small". It's all relative. And how do you measure "size" of existence anyway? Either a thing exists or it doesn't (assuming the law of the excluded middle). In the sense of spatial or temporal extent, I guess you can try to measure your existence, but what does that matter? I see no reason why size of existence would be either an advantage or a disadvantage.

I do not know. I don't really know anything. I'm slightly above the dirt, slightly below the stars and vastly exaggerated.

I mean. We can't even manage to coexist. With no natural enemies, were doomed to fight each other. This is just the law of nature. It's the food chain. And when we found ourselves at the top of the food chain, we became the biggest threat to own existence. We're not even that accomplished that we can figure out how to throw down our basic instincts. It's straight darwinism. We're a conservative creation of nature, and as that we're dictated to remain that way. Everything we do, everything we think is a design of nature. Because it is in our own intellectual nature to come up with the foundation for our actions and creations.

Were not likely to settle another planet
Even less likely to do so without our current global unrest and imbalance within our societies
Were keen on dreaming, but scarily incapable
We're least likely to ever reach out far enough for us to 'figure it out'. I do not believe that we can ever figure it out without finding a way out. Metaphorically, literally, everything. Really find a way out. Find a way out of poverty, a way off earth, a way off the physical plane in order to establish understanding of what really makes us, us, because it clearly isn't anything physical. We're made of atoms, and those atoms are made of molecules, molecules which will go on to live forever and ever, becoming everything and nothing all over again. Adding them up to build you, wouldn't be you, without that essence of you. But until you're released from that, you'll never know whether or not there exists something more. You could an hero. It's a 50/50 chance. Everyone that have ever died have found out. So. Did nothing happen, did they become nothing, or is the great perhaps so heavenly that it made them so jubilant that they forgot everything about this cruel and cold speck of rock, air and water? We won't find out until then.

If you want me to argue for the value of the human race, I can't. Because there is no value that can be emperically proven, that is bound to the physical rules of the universe.

Again, value is given by people and because of this is enterily bound to a persons perception. If you do not see any value in the people around you then in your world there is non.

It is probably a better question why you do not see any value. Maybe you should go find some new people. It seems to me you are trying to rationalize a low mood or maybe a depression.

There's no common goal. The purpose of life is to make your own purpose in life.

Just do what makes you happy and die content.
>>
>>567826376
it depends rather on how you define value. the fact that there are several different ways to do it, lends itself to not being calculated.

that's like trying to map the amount of love the human race gives off. abstract concepts are not measurable except in a comparative sense

You would first establish how you would go about doing it. Then it would be a really demanding process that only gives a subjective answer to one aspect of a greater whole. So it wouldn't have any value at all.

Be useful, bring the human race forth in its goals. Take an objective and pursuit it until you are there and look at all the plebs sitting in front of their computers wondering what purpose their lifes have.

Your life has a purpose if you are a Firefighter. Your life has a purpose if you are a little worker-bee in the hive of a corporation, while it might not be as special as you'd certainly like. But if you don't like that, make noise. Make yourself enemies, try to crush them all, change something, for better or worse, it makes no difference. Just don't do nothing.
Really, the only way your life has no purpose is being a sad little shit in front of the computer or laying in bed.

Use it or lose it goes for all things the same. Even for a purposeful life.

>>567827461
living and dying isn't purpose
It's consequences. Consequences of life. Living and dying is the only thing universally bestowed on every human being.

There is no meaning with that. None at all. What is the meaning behind the allowance of life to begin with?

What is the meaning with human life?

What is the meaning with thought?

Living and dying are just circumstances. The beginning and end as consequences of existence. What has been put together, surely will fall apart in time. But what built it in the first place?
>>
Why? is a bad question.

"Purpose" is a concept, and all concepts are subjective. Therefore, it's up to you to decide your own purpose, OP, just like it's up to me to decide mine.

it does exist in nature. All living things besides humans follow a set purpose. Birds make nests, bees make honey, etc.
Humans have free will and no place in nature because of their ability to shuffle through possibilities and use foresight. They created society, a place for them to act out a purpose. Their own habitat because they lacked one. And thus they move freely and create purposes .
Tl;dr I half agree

It seems quite incoherent to me. It comes down to perception right ? and its quite elementary to know that we perceive things, subjectively. But when we get rid of that, we're left with bare subject, truth. Can we both agree the sky is blue ?

But is it purpose though?
Animals do what they do, because it was how they could live best. Everything any living thing does is caused by a long running evolutionary process that shaped the balance we see in the world. It is not a predetermined set of purposely placed rules, but an unfolding culture that evolves over time according to the environment.

tl;dr order and balance isn't purpose. It's evolution in process.

ok so what Perrry says is that only you can truly experience reality through your senses and that all other things can't be trusted because of the limit of your senses. the perception of the sky, when you ask me (which in this example, lets say i am truly just your mind arguing with itself) what color it is, i respond saying it is obviously blue. Perry would argue your mind is simply confirming what you perceive and that only strengthens his argument of only your perception of reality is to be trusted

I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

Your purpose is whatever you decide it is. Difficulty is arbitrary and subjective... at best. You can aim high, or you can aim low, and you can time your shot or shoot from the hip. It's all up to you.

The problem is, most of us expect pity, entitlements, and a second chance when we aim too low or shoot too quickly. Others of us complain and whine because the shot seems to difficult, or because we've waited so long our arm is getting tired.

Still others bitch because some faggot grabbed their target and started running around with it.

Regardless, you still have the bow, you still have arrows, and you can still hit the target... as long as you don't fuck up.

The choice is yours. How will you live?
