      It's what happens to you whilst you're making other plans.

      “There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”

      Oh what song is that? The Beatles? A Beatle? I know I've heard it but I can't place it. It sounds like Lennon... that's my official guess.

      Yeah, it was Lennon, post-Beatles I imagine. He was full of wisdom about life and love... the irony being that he was a complete jerk.

      Lol You sound like my dad. We actually just discussed this quote while I was trying to explain to him the importance of dreams. It's true, but the attitude it condones (don't worry about the future, live solely for the moment) has it's place and time, but I think it should be one side of a balance.

      Life seems to be quite popular - it's had a game, a magazine, a cereal and an Eddie Murphy movie made about it.

      And Oprah narrated a National Geographic series about it... (although not as popular as Planet Earth. I guess Earth is more popular than living.)

      I like it... I think I'd rather have lived than not.

      To me, it's just the books on a bookshelf which are stopped on one side by birth, and the other side by death. And maybe this next statement will seem selfish, but since I won't "be here" after I'm dead, I don't really care if I don't make a big impact on the world or whatnot, because I won't be there to see it. I just don't want to leave people gasping for air or go before unfinished disputes are resolved.

      Looking back, that sounded really cynical... But hey.

      That's not really selfish so much as a perfectly reasonable conclusion.

      I find that I don't gain much happiness from "wasting" my time with selfish pursuits. I get the most enjoyment knowing that I am making a difference. But it's just a conditioned behavior and I don't think I'm special for aligning with my nature.

      An ant is happy doing its job for the colony, that doesn't mean it will gain any posthumous fulfillment from the long-term fruits of its labor. Working toward those fruits is enough.

      I love life, simply because of the opportunity we all get to live it. Life is pretty benign, by itself. It's some of the variables of life that make or break our overall opinion of it, and it's often our frames of mind which dictate how we see those variables. I'm generally an optimist, so my glass is usually half full. Even when things bog me down in negativity, it usually doesn't take me very long to spring back up and realize that my life has had far more positives than negatives. For every negative I could list about life, I could probably find 2 that I find to be positive. If I tried, it would probably work the other way around, too, but I think it takes a pitiful soul to try to look to the negatives more than the positives.

      And a TV series named after it.

      Oh, I definitely see the glass as half-full, but of poison.

      i believe life is whatever you see it as and its literaly whatever you wana make of it, in life you have opportunities to do the amazing, the unthinkable and the impossible, i believe in life you are either aware of life or your not, and what i mean by aware and unaware is basicly do you see and understand life for what it realy is and what it has to offer, and i dont mean like career or money wise i mean as in everything. theres living life and being aware of life you can do all stuff you wana do and just live to the fullest or you can go past that and see life for what it is, ironicly i highly do not believe that it is possible to become fully aware of life and know everything about it but it is possible to know a certain amount of info on it

      Life has no pourpose other than that which you take value in. People since ages long passed have been asking this question, yet to realize that thiere answer lies within their own mind and not in some half naked guy on a mountain.

      Life to me means doing as I please, as long as I hurt no one in the process. I live my life unbound by religiouse or cultural viewpoints, becuase religion is only theory and cultural viewpoints are limited and controling. Every culture and religion has useless moral rules that "must" be followed and people think your doing wrong by not following them. Despite the fact that you would hurt no one in the process.

      If I where to live my life bound by what others expect of me, then what am I? Am I truely a person? I would not be an individual if i where to follow any culture or religion, at leaste not in my eyes. To be an individual, one needs to realize that their view point is as valid as any other and live according to how they want to live. After all we live short lives, why waste them?

      I'm still thinking on this question. It'll be a while. In fact, by the time I'm done, it'll be too late..

      The only philosophical question of value is whether or not to commit suicide.
