Informant #17029: As somone who believes in reincarnation, I believe that the purpose of life is to learn and experience things that will prepare you for the next life. Sometimes these experiences are for the purpose of burning off karma. The ultimate goal in life (or lives, as the way I see it) is to learn love and forgiveness.

Informant #17051: To live, pass on genes, perhaps improve the world in some miniscule way, though it won't matter in a not too distant future... Then Die.

Informant #17052: The purpose of life must be to have a part in the evolution of humankind. This means that a person's living either carries forward or sets back the ability of humans to understand that each is a part of the whole, that there is power in oneness, that our capabilities are limitless when we have the knowing. You can see this in small part everyday. Often, what people call a miracle, is the power of oneness, the power of love.

Informant #17103: To serve my God and country.

Informant #17104: I don't know if there's a purpose for which life was created, (if it even was created instead of just happening) but I'm pretty sure the purpose of staying alive is to help each other and make the world a better place for the next generation. We're all in this together, after all.

Informant #17581: To reach God

Informant #17584: As humans, we are distinct from the lower animals, and we inherently and illogically long for meaning and purpose . Our purpose is to grow & improve & to provide earthly answers for the inexplicable. People should realise their potential in this life rather than the next. Life is a constant searching of keys to open the most glorious treasure chest in the universe. There must be a logical explanation for our existence – we are not legend or myth. We strive to search for our origins. Our Designer created the whole universe, including humans, so that humanity could discover and ‘invent’ things which already exist, which are there to be pilfered. Are we just here to struggle to survive – then die? Are we the product of an unfortunate Big Bang? If so, we should not expect miracles or wondrous happenings. We just have to get on with the daily drudge - like it or lump it

Informant #17585: There are two sepearate answers:- (a) My emotional self wants to survive (group survival not alone), reproduce and progress. (b) My rational self does not know and is not evolved enough to decide its goal.

Informant #17586: The dominant live form on earth are leafy green things. Animals, including humans, are just a support system. Leafy green things are stationary and we animals are mobile and can be moved around to the location that we are needed by leaffy green things. That is to say, leafy green things job is to convert carbon dioxide to oxygen. We animals support leafy green things by converting oxygen back to carbon dioxide, that is why we are mobile, so we can be moved to areas that are dangerous to leafy green things.

We can see the purpose by observing nature -- every rose bush, every tree, every creature; despite all difficulties, each is hopelessly devoted to expressing its fullest self. Our way to express this fullest blooming is to always be asking this One question: Am I, right now, acting in accord with my deepest, highest expression of Being?

Informant #17637: There is no purpose, eventaully you die and rot and that is all there is, you don't go anywhere or do anything, and anyone who ever knew you will either forget or die off, and eventaully the whole human race will be killed off so eventually all great people will be forgotten so there is really no point to it, except life is all that we have and its all we will ever have so it might as well be as be a pleasant experience even if its piontless, so if it can't be enjoyable for you then i believe you should make it pleasant for those around you because most people don't realize how piontless all this really is. but all we have is this second, this exact moment and we share this exact moment with everyone else in existance, why cut other peoples live short if its all they have.

Informant #17652: To make to world a better place then we found it.

Informant #17681: carpe diem

Informant #17684: The purpose of life is self realizing. The quest, the journey to finding the purpose is the purpose or reason. Travel far and experience all. Live every day an adventure. There is naught else to do with life but live it.

Informant #17685: to combine DNA and enjoy oneself

Informant #17689: live life the way you want to live it

Informant #17739: To have sex and reproduce!

Informant #17740: no purpose

Informant #17741: There is no huge purpose to life as a whole...meaning why all of humanity exists. The purpose for the individual however is to help others and try to bring everyone to a higher level of living and consciousness.

Informant #17742: It's jsut one big long experience that is our existence through time,. While we might not seem to be doing anything immedeatly "important" during our time of living, especially for ourselves, we really are. It is the time that we occupy within the existence of the univerese that makes our lives worth it's purpose. For if we ever rewind, or zoom back to a moment in time, through our memory of course, we can think of people who have past away. It is our purpose to survive time through memories, accomplishments, and overall existence. Life is our oppurtunity for trying to see how many experiences can reach us out to our own personal high, enlightment as one might say. We reach our peak of emotions from one sense or another and continue to fluctuate through our time period of existence. Also, to add on to the next question. Everyone knows their purpose in life. Not everyone sees the statue in the marble, but, once they have lived their lives to the fullest of their capabilities then they have lived their purpose.

Informant #17744: To connect with God.

Informant #17745: To learn the lesson which we are here to learn.

Informant #17746: life is one step of a progression

Informant #17749: have fun, and, explore all that life has to offer

Informant #17750: To have fun and enjoy what's been given to you. Then there are those days when the quote by Agent Smith in Matrix Revolutions fits the bill: "The purpose of life is to end."

Informant #17761: As humans, we are distinct from the lower animals, and we inherently and illogically long for meaning and purpose . Our purpose is to grow & improve & to provide earthly answers for the inexplicable. People should realise their potential in this life rather than the next. Life is a constant searching of keys to open the most glorious treasure chest in the universe. There must be a logical explanation for our existence – we are not legend or myth. We strive to search for our origins. Our Designer created the whole universe, including humans, so that humanity could discover and ‘invent’ things which already exist, which are there to be pilfered. Are we just here to struggle to survive – then die? Are we the product of an unfortunate Big Bang? If so, we should not expect miracles or wondrous happenings. We just have to get on with the daily drudge - like it or lump it

Informant #17762: To live life to find the purpose you live it for

Informant #17818: To f*** everyone on the block and to completely make them all bow towards my beauty.

Informant #17820: To conform. okay needs a little explanation. so, life is built around making you tno wanna do things that will make you not reproduce, like getting your balls kicked, and rewarding reproducion, sex feels good. So, all organisms are built around this desire to reproduce, and whats reproduction do? well, if there was one of you, and a lot of matter, now there two, that means youve chagned some matter into you. your gonna effing convert teh crap outta ll that matter untill CONFORMITY HAS OCCURED! really though, the meaning of life is to spawn more life.

Informant #17828: to die

Informant #17834: no idea

Informant #17837: The purpose of life is just to exist, to find a little happiness, maybe. If you can do that within the rules of society, great. If not, however, you run the risk of being made unhappy so that more people can be happy. Take it any further than that and you get into a planned universe, and if you're going there, you can go without me.

Informant #17839: To create and improve everything.

Informant #17840: None Make the best of it

Informant #17842: To exist, and fulfill your destiny.

Informant #17843: To progress, technologically, biologically and intellectually.

Informant #17844: To die.

Informant #17846: No idea

Informant #17849: To help make the world a better place.

Informant #17851: The reason for being is the being of reason... Meaning that there is no meaning to life and that you are not truly alive till you can reason and try to figure out the meaning of life.

Informant #17853: i dont kno

Informant #17857: To have fun and enjoy life to it's fullest.

Informant #17858: To live a full and happy life, to live to serve God.

Informant #17859: The purpose of life is a test to see whether you are good enough to be in heaven with god. The reason for this is god wants a community to watch, which is in harmony and peace.

Informant #17861: i have no idea, its imposible to know. In my opinion God isn't it.

Informant #17862: Memories make up somebodys life. Make good memories, stay in touch with life instead of worrying about paying bills, stressing over stores and money. Everything is else is just a minor detail. Living whether your broke rich is beautiful

Informant #17866: To be happy and enjoy life while making a difference to the world in some way. And the difference you make, makes the world a better place!

Informant #17869: to watch afl lol!!!!!! nah just to be happy and try not to destroy things and help animals because we can create subtances that help them surivive longer

Informant #17871: ??????

Informant #17874: to leave the world just a little bit better than you came into it. make a difference for the better no matter how small or insignificant it may seem.

Informant #17875: To live a life of purpose. I believe it is to live a God filled life. To show God's love and show his love though every day living to those who don't know him. To live the life that God intends us to live.

Informant #17876: REPRODUCTION! Isnt that what everyone says ! haha Also probably just to some how make a difference in the world- make a stamp in history

Informant #17883: There isn't any.

Informant #17884: life is a word,words can not describle it or what it is supposed to do,because it is simply not describable,it is your own journey,and the purpose of life is to live you know

Informant #17887: n/a

Informant #17904: The purpose of life isn't something that is of tangibility, in most cases it is overlooked. It is the dew that forms on the grass in the mornings, it is the sunlight, and it's the birds that chime. How is this the meaning of life? This is merely nature... but nature is an integral part of life. And it is natural for us to live. It is natural for us to learn and love... as it is natural for us to die. Our emotions convey what we see the world. So perhaps the purpose of life is to feel. To leave a mark on the world. We have come far away from wha humans used to be, so far that our purpose has perhaps changed. We have a purpose. It is disputable, but i believe that it is our purpose to help each other and to help nature. We can either uphold or destroy any natural balance. This is what is is to be human; the great burden. So then, after all of this, what is the purpose of life? It is of course, to live as productive humans, to think, to love, and inevitably to go back ot the cycle that which gave us our life.

Informant #17911: to die

Informant #17926: If there is a purpose, I think that there is not any way to know what it is.

Informant #17928: .... f*** off

Informant #17931: Survive and reproduce. But each individual has their own ideas, there is no set answer.

Informant #17945: Constant Happiness.

Informant #17951: not sure.

Informant #17959: I think the purpose of life is to be fulfilled. To find happiness and to be an ultimately good person.

Informant #17962: To help others. We are only here for a short period of time, but there will always be new people entering this world. The least we can do is help them reach success.

Informant #17967: to live

Informant #17985: I think the purpose of life is to find reason in the world. How do you prove we exist? Maybe we dont exist? There is no way to find the purpose in life, everyone has their own purpose to accomplish in their lifetime.

Informant #17989: The purpose of life is to learn everything, know everything, and finally put all that knowledge to use to find the real meaning of life.

Informant #17993: Life is no different to any other chemical reactions and therefore there is no purpose.

Informant #17994: I've been pondering the question for years. As I see it, life is like a quilt. Our experiences and interactions throughout life color and decorate the quilt. When we die, we have a work of art. Some of them are ornate, some drab and boring. So to me (right now, that is), the purpose of life is to just make the quilt as beautiful as possible.

Informant #17999: The purpose of human existence is to be a companion for God. Fulfilling it is, of course, inevitable. Whenever and for however long He chooses to entertain our company, there we will be.

Informant #18005: To have a good time.

Informant #18010: surviving

Informant #18020: To f*** a lot of hot guys and have a lot fo fun.

Informant #18036: loving and creating, love and imagination

Informant #18037: Make yourself happy, but not at the expense of others.

Informant #18038: Love

Informant #18044: I think that the purpose of life may be to affect another so strongly that in the long run the world is in fact changed.

Informant #18045: to live it to the max

Informant #18053: To live a joyful, compassionate path. To be happy, and lift the spirits of those around you.

Informant #18056: nothing

Informant #18060: I have no freaking clue!

Informant #18065: Don't know

Informant #18067: To die

Informant #18068: life is purposeless

Informant #18069: dunno

Informant #18071: to enjoy it and then die

Informant #18072: to pass on our genes, by having sex..for the progression of the entire species and, personally to experience all the highs and lows possible in life

Informant #18078: To love God, through that love seek experience, and live always for good.

Informant #18081: To have a purpose something must have been made for that purpose, since the Earth wasn't made by anyone, then no purpose exists. It just happened.

Informant #18082: To reproduce and raise the next generation.

Informant #18083: no clue

Informant #18092: To be the best that you can be.

Informant #18093: to contribute in a positive way

Informant #18094: There is no purpose (as in reason to be here), you just 'are'. But people should do what they can to ensure their happiness, and that of others.

Informant #18097: live, eat, poop, recreate, and convert

Informant #18098: I expect that the belief of 'life' is a cognitive function which is part of evolutionary psychology. Thus the purpose of life is to make the individual believing he is 'alive' to be more evolutionary fit.

Informant #18106: Whatever we decide.

Informant #18107: Nothing. Everything is meaningless and pointless. But pleasure is everything.

Informant #18115: 57

Informant #18123: Serving God and your fellow man to the best of your ability.

Informant #18125: To be part of a society where you contribute to the greater good of society. To change and touch a life.

Informant #18138: Make the babies

Informant #18152: not sure

Informant #18154: There is no evidence for any conclusion so I am not going to make one. This made it difficult to answer question 1 too, because that is somewhat assuming that there IS a purpose of life. Any answer that anybody could come up with may be correct, but since there is no evidence to suggest that it is then I am not going to believe it. Also question 3 I cannot anwer, since I do not think anything on this situation, so I picked everyone at random - ignore it please.

Informant #18166: I don't think there is a purpose

Informant #18167: I don't think there is a purpose of life at all. So you might as well enjoy it, make money, spend it, have fun etc.

Informant #18170: To be Happy and Content.

Informant #18171: There is no purpose, life just happens. Believeing there is a purpose to life is just naive wishful thinking.

Informant #18210: Enjoy it.

Informant #18219: To carry on chemical reactions, it is just a physical process. It is the beginning and end result of all are life cycle.The thought process is really abstract, and that is where most people get driven nuts. They should really be asking what is the purpose of thought.

Informant #18226: ....

Informant #18228: to respect the rights of all other beings, and to in turn have your own respected.

Informant #18237: What ever purpose an individual choosed to give their life.


Informant #18251: Obey God.

Informant #18254: believing in god

Informant #18260: I know there is no purpose. Poor question. You did not include this option. Your survey will give you a bum result. Whichever box is ticked assumes there is a purpose. It is called a loaded question. The next question is bad in the same way.

Informant #18261: to live

Informant #18270: To have a relationship with God and to love and serve others.

Informant #18292: Fulfilling God's will and growing his kingdom. The specifics are determined by each individual's strengths and weaknesses.

Informant #18299: To help others

Informant #18303: There is no purpose

Informant #18334: Love

Informant #18348: To be happy and help others be happy not only with themselves but with their life

Informant #18372: to find happiness within yourself

Informant #18385: Enjoy life with family and do what i want to do

Informant #18390: I think that the purpose of life if it was to be anything is to shut up and live (see my comment on the forum - Elsibelle)

Informant #18572: To explore the wonder's of God's creations and to behold the beauty of my fellow man - that is life.

Informant #18600: To be as happy as you can, depending on where you are in life. Never settle, reach for the stars, and do what makes you happy.

Informant #18850: for me: to live according to my beliefs for others: to live as they see fit

Informant #18854: Does there have to be a purpose? I'm not sure there does. Could we not just be the result of a series of random accidents? If we have a purpose, I'm guessing it is simply to create, nurture and improve on the next generation of life.

Informant #18923: I think that the purpose of life is happiness. Happiness to me is a lot more than just a materialistic happiness it is more of a contentment with life. I think when people are content they are happy want to help others be happy as well instead of always striving for something more. I guess also that other people can find purpose in other ways (different religions) and as long as it works for them that is their purpose in life.

Informant #19054: Probably it is to have kids and the best is that they'll have kids to... and over and over again... that's all It is for the living of the man's civilisation

Informant #19131: Hmmm a tricky question. I believe the purpose of life, as the Dalai Lama said is to achieve happiness but I do think it's more to that... perhaps we are all living and here by chance =/. I don't really know... we could be living to be of some support or something to God or a god or whomever =/... I can say that one people's lives have a purpose which is to affect other people's lives in specific ways but the purpose of EVERYONE"s lives is rather unclear...

Informant #19153: as a chair's purpose is to be sat on, isn't a persons life meant to be lived? different chairs are meant for different people, maybe the purpose isn't living but what we should live for (die for)?

Informant #19174: Love Others and Self

Informant #19180: To be a servent of God's

Informant #19198: There is none.

Informant #19276: We won't know till we die! (Or not!)

Informant #19291: i don't really think there is a purpose in life..except for stay alive? other than that, there really isn't one.

Informant #19352: You really expect me to go to the trouble of telling you?

Informant #19456: Not to answeer that, and live an honorable life, being good with people, but also not limitating violence if it is needed.

Informant #19522: I think the purpose of life is to live it to the fullest.

Informant #19535: The experience of it, that's it.

Informant #19569: To excel: to realise what our options are and make choices according to the best that we can potentially achieve.

Informant #19676: Dont know.

Informant #19706: The Purpose of Life is to spend the time you have been alloted here doing the best you can for the most you can. We aren't supposed to be spared any experience, but to use them to bring ourselves closer to the higher power from which our creativity and inner essence is derrived.

Informant #19728: To become a better person, a person who loves and serves.

Informant #20193: jhgh

Informant #20214: To be happy and healthy

Informant #21870: I do not know and I am desperate to find out

Informant #23111: teach others about god, jesus, love your neighbor

Informant #23506: To find your way, like your true calling, if you look at it from an individuals point of view, but if you think the purpose of life in general, then I think that the purpose just doesn't exist...

Informant #23557: enjoying a happy and prosporous life

Informant #23616: I don't think life really has a purpose...

Informant #25898: To actuallize our potential.

Informant #25947: I think it is to believe in something greater and the meaning of life is to live life.

Informant #26373: The moral purpose of life is to pursue happiness. As I am an athiest, any "purpose" for life as a religious person might claim does not exist. However, I am here, so I should enjoy as best I can. No mystic purpose, just make the best of it. Be happy. In order to be happy you have to know what that is, hence the importance of philosophy.

Informant #26423: We may know but we are not permitted (for lack of a better word) to be concious of it. There is a reason why we have this wonder but it is too big an answer for us to either to deal with or to understand. EG: Like ants on the ground not seeing us above or being aware of us.

Informant #26494: I think we make our own purpose. I don't believe there is any grand purpose.

Informant #26571: To just enjoy it. I don't beleive their is a I try to live everyday as if it were my last. Cause someday it will be.
