The point of life is to enjoy it until it ends.

What else would you be living for if it wasn't to have enjoyment, peace and fun? You're always working your way to get it though, or do you think that people actually like to study, work and do other obligations?

It's all about the result.

I don't think there is a universal point to life. Everyone's will be different, some people will want to get rich, some people want to be happy, some people want to do charity work. The point of your life, all depends on what you actually want.

It all boils down to happiness then, doesn't it? The only difference is in the things that make you happy.

People who ask this question are generally unhappy with their lives. Nihilism makes no sense.

There is no meaning to life. Survival does not give meaning. Working 40 hours a week is not the meaning, nothing is. We are born into this infinite universe where pretty much anything is possible. Is up to you to create meaning. The fact that existence is true gives some sort of meaning. But is non-existence even possible?

For me, creating positive energy, exploring and experiencing the highs and lows of reality is my meaning. This is just a ride

It'd be pretty cool to see if anything would happen if the entire world instantly died out.

But really there is no point to life, not that we definitely know of. It's quite an odd thing to think about.

I wasn't aware that I was talking like these people. What are you confused about?

You're right in a way. Every moment is fleeting and in the end there's nothing left. You're living, and some would say you're dying. Both are right. Figure out how you respond to the world around you and go from there. There's not much point in us trying to do it for you, it's one of those things that has as many answers as there are people.

However, if you want to ask about something else then feel free. Just don't expect people to be able to answer something so broad as "what is the point of life?"

There is no point of life. It is conceded to think any of us are here for a reason or 'point'.

Exist and be happy to exist. We are no different than an ant or a worm.

Enjoy being one of the higher functioning life forms. We get cool things with being in that higher functioning group.



Be good.

Life doesn't seem to intrest me anymore. I mean, when I have fun or do something I like. It doesn't last forever. For intstance if I eat my favourite for and I enjoy it. Then when I am finished, its finished, no more food, get my point. Or if I watch a intresting movie, when I am done with it, its finished. See where I am going with this? It is SO frustrating I mean. Life is we live, we destroy, we reproduce, we die. What is your view on the point of life?

You really need to get into psychedelics. They will change your whole perspective on life.

The point of life is to enjoy it as much as you can. Leave that past sadness life behind and move forward.
Forget about about the bad things in life, and always look on the bright side.
