  1. “The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

    – Ralph Waldo Emerson

  2. To solve the riddle. To answer the question “what is the point of it all?”

    Life is a puzzle that must be solved to escape this reality. Whether we chose this experience like we choose to go to college or it’s some kind of prison sentence our responsibility in life is to learn. Figure it out. Solve the puzzle. Free ourselves from this experience and move on to the next. The esoteric world is where you’ll find clues to help answer this question. It’s all hidden and there’s no shortage of esotericists who believe they have the answers. Don’t be fooled. If someone says they have the truth they don’t have the truth. The answer will eventually be made known to you from within. And remember “in order to know truth one must first see the lie.”

  3. There is none other than fo live and die

    You’ve gotta find what your purpose is it’s not something available to those who simply just want it
    It’s more of finding a passion and making that into a purpose well it’s the only way I can think to describe it

  4. Objectively? The point is to confront boredom.

    There’s a damn good reason why all this reality stuff exists, and that’s because of us, all of us, none of us were satisfied with Nothingness. It would have been so much easier to have Nothing, but nope, we’re not okay with settling for a null value.

    Boredom is the ultimate problem from which all other problems are born. Boredom exists when all other problems are solved, it exists when we grow accustomed to our problems, and even when we’re fully engaged with our distractions it’s there, waiting silently for us to finish.

    There are three possible reactions to boredom, the first reaction is the one we refuse to give it, acceptance. The other two reactions are creation and destruction. When we’re bored we create something new to distract ourselves, or we dismantle something old, but regardless of what we choose and how many new problems are generated by those decisions, sooner or later we’re forced to confront the beast of boredom once more.

  5. Point of what exactly? Life? or what?

    I don’t believe that there is a “point” to all this. I don’t believe in a grand universal scheme that justifies our pain and happiness. Life is as is.

    Do you really need a point to all this in order to live your life?

    I’ve been racking my brain about purpose and meaning for a long time. I’ve always felt empty about it, since I’ve never had any dreams, goals, or life ambitions. I went to college in a field which I have no real interest in, and I’m going through living without having found a reason for staying

    I guess the only reason why I’m not suicidal at all, is because I think it’s such a waste to end the story quickly. I’ve still got a few decades of suffering and joy left, and it seems like such a waste to skip to the end without knowing how it all unfolds- Especially since we don’t exactly know what comes after. For all we know, this could be the only instance of “me” existing, or maybe ill get reincarnated or something Either way it’s a waste.

    Life has “Impetus”, a reason for “moving”. If you really need a point to all this, then make one! Find a reason- any kind if reason to keep you preoccupied; It could be religion, or your career, or your hobbist, just overall anything. That’s what I’ve done- made my career path the Will I need to see this through
