Why does death seem like the best possible thing that you could experience as a robot? Me being nihilistic it honestly seems like the only good thing that will happen to me is death, there is nothing enjoyable in life besides vidya for me (vidya at its core is just escapism from this shit life). There's honestly no point in living in my eyes, and I can't understand how normies don't realise it yet. I'm pretty sure that if everyone realised that life and existence as a whole is just completely pointless, it would lead to a self destructive society since there is no point in reproducing.

Reproducing is your point in life. We're animals. Don't think you're special because you can contemplate the universe.
>>
>>39665828
You will someday find purpose in your life, although it may sound unlikely right now.
>>
>>39665846
I don't think that I'm special or that the human species is special, but reproducing has no meaning or point whatsoever in the grand scheme of things, and the only reason we do it is because Instincts, nothing else.
>>
>>39665862
Depends on what you think purpose is. Sure, you can find a purpose which meaning is only there to satisfy you and your selfish needs but that's not what I'm looking for. I can't find a meaning in life or existence, including reproduction. None of it has a meaning, it only exists here because it exists, I can't see it any differently.
>>
>>39665920
What if you find purpose from being selfless? By helping others in need or through acts of altruism? Is that still self-serving and pointless?
>>
>>39666049
Could be meaningful, even though it is just helping out others. It still boggles my mind how that doesn't fulfill any greater purpose. Many people have religion as an excuse, and they see it as some purpose. Me being an atheist and thinking that religion is a meme in 2017 at this point, I question if there is a true meaning of existence and life as a whole, apart from your own needs and desires and the social constructs made by others. What's the point in helping out people if it's not gonna fulfill anything in the grand scheme of things, these people are gonna keep living and dying without any reason. So what's the point if nothing gets changed in the end?
>>
>>39666298
If you try to invalidate everything with the "but muh nihilism so any action doesnt change the earth bro" meme, why are you even posing the question?
>>
>>39665828
Death is the antithesis of experience.
>>
>>39665846
If we're animals, reproduction is pointless. Animals are born to suffer. People should not be. I wonder what a society that actually valued people would look like?
>>
>>39666334
I want to have an answer that isn't based on meanings set out by other people, because that kinda ruins the purpose of me asking this question in the first place. I'm looking for a purpose on a higher level than the human species; why do other living being exist, what's the purpose of just mindlessly reproducing? It doesn't make much sense when you step out of the human race to see the bigger picture.
>>
>>39666395
Why would there be a bigger picture? Life only exists and evolves due to reproduction. Why does anything happen? There's not some secret agenda perpetuated by some god to explain shit.

Even so, how does that 'deep' realization invalidate the human experience or trying to live a meaningful life?
>>
>>39666420
Wouldn't it make more sense if there was a bigger picture? Why are humans the only ones that can contemplate and think on a deeper level?
The deep realisation personally affects me (doesn't have to affect you, each to their own) as knowing that what I do is pointless and it makes me feel empty inside, it feels as if I'm useless, not to mention the loss of motivation to keep going.

>Why are humans the only ones that can contemplate and think on a deeper level?

Because we as a species evolved to have larger brains capable of more complex thoughts, to help us outsmart more physically fit animals/predators, which allowed us to pass our genes on and grow progressively smarter.

Dolphins share a similar amount of intelligence, and given a few million more years could probably have become a self-aware species too.
>>
>>39665828
Because it is the only thing guarenteed to you.

Not love. Not happiness. Not companionship. Only the sweet release of death from all of your torment, and with your last breath do you finally feel free.
>>
>>39666518
I'm not sure about normies but it feels like most of my emotions and experiences were just negative. Pain, suffering, depression, torment etc.
I'm pretty sure most normies just drink and do drugs to escape those experiences.
>>
>>39665828
If you really believed that you'd already be dead. Your thinking brain isn't your real brain.
