      What is the meaning of life?

      a couple of days ago i asked my subconscious the very same question and it answered me....these were its exact words:

      the meaning of life is the same as a candles, to give out warmth and a light within darkness to those around you, and to burn as brightly as possible until you burn out...

      translated means:

      the meaning of life is to help those around you, (the human race and the world) to make a positive difference so your actions benefit the world, and to be the best you can be and help as many people as possible until your time runs out...

      this is from an agnostic point of view, and by helping people i dont mean community service or donating money to the poor, i mean taking large actions that benefit the world, Thomas Edison : light bulb, Edward Jenner ; cure for Smallpox, Martin Luther King : fought for equality for all..., large differences which help help mould the world for the better...

      That is my Meaning Of Life...

      I disagree. If everyone strived to make big waves with big actions (i.e. light bulb, cure for smallpox, equality for all, etc. etc.) then we would be nowhere humane. Small things make a difference too. Not everyone can invent ingenious things, or fight enough to make a big difference.

      In my opinion, if I can make one person's life better, make one person happier, give one starving kid on the side of the road a hamburger I'm not going to eat, smile at one sad girl, say hello to one lonely boy, then I've made a difference that counts, and I can wake up every morning and look myself in the mirror.

      There's a story in the bible about Jesus coming as a beggar to a woman's door to ask for food, and she turns him away saying she's saving the bread for Jesus, well that inspired me (even though I'm not Christian) to try and make a difference. What if that girl I smiled at was considering suicide? Then my smile saved a life, and that's a noble thing.

      Yes, that was the funny part of my remark.

      All you are doing now is personally attacking me for something you don't believe in, it just shows how low you are, i have already ended this once and you just start it up again... It is quite childish.[/b]
      I am sure I started with 'You are ignorant' and 'you are to stupid to understand'. : )


      That is very rich for someone who attacks a person for their beliefs, to me that makes you extremely arrogant.

      I believe that all animals have emotions, are you also saying that Cats, dogs etc don't have emotions? I can assure you they have.[/b]
      Haha. Do you think bacteria have emotions? You said you can't live without emotions. I pointed out you were wrong: bacteria don't have emotions, yet they live. Whether humans and animals have emotions (they do of course) wasn't even the subject, but all these long words might have confused you.


      No but it matters to you whether i'm right or wrong, you have obviously taken it to heart.[/b]
      I just find it funny you get so worked up about some bullshit theory.
      No you ASSUMED that i can't keep up, i know what you mean. I agreed with you thhat in the bigger picture they hold little value, did you miss that part or is your ego making you only read what you want to read? Now you have resorted to childish "knit picking" of my words, a sure sign that you are losing, i have seen countless mistakes in your posts but i wont stoop that low. You class me in with a group of people? You know nothing about me to do so.[/b]
      I love when people say 'Oh, you know nothing about me'. I do know your theory was weak, and you make mistakes that derive from your one-sides way of thinking.

      And you do, child? It's funny because that is exactly the same i think about you. I am high and because of that i see the world differently to other people, but you are set dead on proving me wrong and you are failing badly, thats because you can't prove me wrong but you can disagree.[/b]
      You are high right now? Damn, why do you do drugs if they don't even make you feel good? Also, there is nothing to agree with, you haven't actually said anything new.

      LOL, Come on please just grow up.[/b]
      My penis is.

      lol. I find it likely that you, despite being a grand 5 months older, are mentally more childish then me, dear sir. What are you, still in high school or something?

      No you don't know your right your only proving your arrogance and it proves how weak minded you are by believing you know, it is one of the things that cannot be answered, all you have done was turn it on yourself. I did answer it, did you miss it?[/b]
      You must have shat over the words, I can barely read this without laughing.

      Derogatory comments only prove how childish you are being. I'm not being hateful at all, it just shows me that you are a hypocrite. People can understand it and there is only one stupid, ignorant person criticising me out of all of them and that is you.[/b]
      Haha. I am quite sure other people will see two people getting into a pointless, silly discussion about nothing. You don't really believe people think you are wise for even finding yourself in such a discussion But keep lying, it must be nice in lie-world.
      I have been told i'm not saying anything new, you just took it that little bit further, my friend, that is why i don't think much of your mental capabilities, you are just dead set on arguing for the sake of it and you try to prove me wrong... It not going to happen.[/b]
      Actually, I kind of went beyond proving you wrong. You already are wrong. As I am in this lame topic, but at least I didn't have a theory that no-one takes seriously.

      42!

      42!

      I have ended this debate already, why do you bring it up? If you want to argue for the sake of arguing PM me and not spew it all over the thread.
      [/b]
      Then you should accept your lose. I didn't loss, I am never wrong, You are ignorant. What did you say? It is YOU that is right, and I that is ignorant? Hmmm, how weird, we are both completely right... I think this is a great natural paradox. Get the scientist, we have to investigate it, it defies the laws of nature!

      lol. Either way, I find it an interesting topic that went nowhere clearly pretty fast, yet it went on so long. What have you achieved? Do you think people agree with you more? Lets say I am a retard, why get so worked up about it.

      Actually, you have given me the best and most progressive result I could get between two people like us, thanks.

      I understand what you are saying but i do not think that i wrote my views down accurately, if smiling at someone can prevent them from commiting suicide then i would call that a large/important action, it may not be world defining but it is still an action that helps a person in a large way...obviously my true aim is to benefit the entire world for the best, but i am not saying that small changes do not make a difference, if i could help anyone in any way then i would, but i will always be aiming to make a large, positive difference to everyones lives, although it may not happen, the fact is that i tried my very best and "burned as brightly as possible"...

      That is an incredibly ignorant thing to say, just by the way.

      I think that should be the gist of your argument, if everyone based everything they did on that one principle, we'd all be in a much better place, whether the best they could do was curing cancer, or peeling potatoes quickly.

      lol I meant the view of never being wrong is an ignorant one to assume. Or it might just be very female. Either way.

      And, you can be right and ignorant at the same time. For example, my cousin is ignorant when it comes to the functions of cars. She said "driving with my air conditioner on uses more petrol". She is right. She doesn't know why. So, she was right, and ignorant, at the same time...

      How can you possibly know that bacteria don't have emotions ? Bacteria have a drive that makes them want to survive and that drive must come from some sort of instinct to survive, you can't have that instinct without some sort of intelligence and with that intelligence comes emotion (you can't be brain dead and have emotions). Obviously that intelligence is not as developed as our own or any other creature but science has proven the intelligence or rather group intelligence of bacteria, they will only live in places best suited for their survival whether that would be mutualistic, through parasitism or commenalism.

      I love when people say 'Oh, you know nothing about me'. I do know your theory was weak, and you make mistakes that derive from your one-sides way of thinking.[/b]
      It is the same with you too, you can call it weak, it really doesn't bother me at all. reading through yor comments, however, i have noticed you have contradicted yourself on many occasions and been hypocritical about my comments.

      Higher self.

      Haha. I am quite sure other people will see two people getting into a pointless, silly discussion about nothing. You don't really believe people think you are wise for even finding yourself in such a discussion But keep lying, it must be nice in lie-world.[/b]
      I don't personally think i'm wise, i haven't said i was right, i haven't said you were wrong and i haven't boasted about my intellect to anyone but you think i have, i don't expect people to believe me, thats why it's a theory, people choose to believe it or not.

      Then you should accept your lose. I didn't loss, I am never wrong, You are ignorant. What did you say? It is YOU that is right, and I that is ignorant? Hmmm, how weird, we are both completely right... I think this is a great natural paradox. Get the scientist, we have to investigate it, it defies the laws of nature![/b]
      A very ignorant thing to say, i already know my point was not new because Ataraxis told me so.

      Actually, I kind of went beyond proving you wrong. You already are wrong. As I am in this lame topic, but at least I didn't have a theory that no-one takes seriously.[/b]
      I haven't even raised a sweat over this so far, your constant barrage of insults (which you will no doubt deny) towards me, my intellect and about my theory is like water on rock. You haven't proven me wrong at all, just insulting me, i don't mind at all if you don't believe me but the fact is that you can't prove me wrong .

      Thank you for your time Neruo.
