did i tell you, you would answer me? yes i did

you see the question about life is like this... and im happy to share as its my job ; )

life itself is an answer to a question just like death

befor you was here on this little rock you call home

can you tell me were it is you was?

no but you was someplace was u not? in order for you to be here you was someplace els

Granted you was not you, as the job you had changed

life and death is like 1/0 logic work it out

you are not asking a question IT is ; )

or why would you have logic in the first place?

do you not see my point?

my post was a question now i shall sit and wait for you to choose to answer it

you could in fact not "thats not my choice"

my question is as i stated earlier. what is the question to which life is the answer? and yes before we were all born what can you remember. nothing, blackness, infinite blackness, and i believe when you die you return to that blackness just like an eternal sleep.

the black ness it just like life

what is in the middle of them is the important part

; )

for one to have the other must require a question

we "me and you" are answers to that question both dead and alive

but the question being asked now is a very hard one

but it is indeed asking

the answer to life it to keep life going at all costs

or IT stops asking and no more YOU as a life form !

you dont need to be another answer if you get my drift ; )

i kind of understand where your coming from but to what question are we answer. is the question of can we follow the way of the lord? if "god" created the finite universe for life forms to see if they can follow the rules he has set in place. like love one another. but so far i think our answer has been less than impressive. if you look at the bible it says that our "world" is just a bet between god and satan to see if us lowly half witted mortals can listen to our father.

its the being here that is important

i can understand your frustration

but its needed in order to kinda keep it all going

its not a joke why you are here

in order for it to all work you must be here to ask why

its a chatch 22 but understand that is the only way to have what you call

humilty and greatfullnees

you will see this

when you go to answer another question

be for you leave as does every person and thing

they say thank you for getting the chance to die

for in order to be alive on must die

it flows like the river my friend just ride it

just want to add this as i think you need it

did you ever say thank you for being here? to feel the pain you do?


are not what you think they are

its not my place to tell you im sorry

you have to do it for you

or it does not work

just be thankfull you feel the way you do

thats what is missing on the rock you call home but it will change in time

we "and yes even me" have to wait for it always

I have the answer.


What is life? A magazine

How much does it cost? It cost 20 cents.

Oh no I only got a nickel.

Well, that's Life.

Forgive me for being silly. I was all boged down in this discussion and suddenly the words to this very old song came to me.

Life is a gift to be lived to the fullest.

"What is death like?" This would be something an Immortal Being would ask.

Another would be "What is conditional love?" Seeing as the Creator loves unconditionally.

From what I gathered from the statement "you dont need to be another answer if you get my drift ; )," you are here to answer a question and if the question isn't answered you stick around to find the answer. If you do answer the question your purpose has been fulfilled and you are given another assignment or possibly are blinked out of existence? The fact that IT is asking, is why we exist, and we exist because IT is asking.

I was Blinked here so to speak lol

i came from another question to answer this one!

the snag i have is that im aware of the other question in order to answer this one

my job is only to show the question not to bend your mind

IT will do that not me

IT made me as well do not forget

WE me and YOU are the same thing

LIFE is one side of a question Death is the other

BOTH are needed

keeps it all going

IT made BOTH

Just to say this vagueness in the thread is really frustrating.

Life is life, simple as, dont try to put a reason behind life, since then you are already predetermining that you were created with a purpose. Instead of asking why am i here? ask...How should i live? That is much more important. Always strive to be your best, to overcome your negative habits, surroundings and desires. To strive for excellence, NOT perfection.

BTW, someone said we only use 10% and we should grow to unlock 90%. This is an incorrect and common misinterpretation. We use 100% of our brain, but typically only 10% at any one moment in time.

Why is it that when this simple question is asked we get so many different answers? I would say the reason is that life means different things to different people.

Many times and on many occasions in our life we have pondered over these simple questions;why are we here,what is my purpose in life,and what is the reason for it.

In one way or another,we found many different religions and many different philosophies in the hope that they would answer these fundamental questions for us.

Here here!

lets look at it in another way here

someone pointed it out

many questions are asked but in order for YOU to ask what you are

what does this mean?

Why ask? what is the function of asking?

you live inside a question, your mind is not the same thing as your body correct? no shape?

look at the universe and understand what it is you are in

A tree will not ask BUT that was never the job for the tree was it? YOUR job

is to KEEP the question going or you would not be asking why you was here in the first place making choices you do not even know why you do

why? Well .. simple really YOU are not asking
your just the outcome of one and you Replicate it

your body = answer your brain = replication

Hmm now we are getting somewhere. It is part of our nature to ask questions, it is the nature of the mind to speculate and ponder. Nice argument, however I wouldnt say that is what defines us? I would argue that is how our brains have evolved over the past few millenia to ensure our survival. Smarter people tend to always associate events with trends. (just as a random fact for ya

Well Its only about understand of self really and what you are..

We can look at in many ways, If you think about symmetry and shapes, what is the role? do not forget humans are NOT life...

Tho you may think it is, its not, the very essence of life is life so what is this essence? well? its a function.. but of what? what must this function be? well, if we use logic to understand it you "me" life is an outcome of something but what? well we know that by the very function of what we do

In order to get answers what do you do?, you question correct?

so what do you think you are inside? A question!

Not asked by you or me but we give it answers and we are needed to propagate it and also to replicate it

that is why life replicates to give answers

you are both the question and the answer and the answer you give then gives more questions

did you ever think to stop and understand what you do can in fact be a physical thing?

You are correct? so why would not your mind be physical ?

seems silly does it not?

; )

our brains?

what put your brain here is the question

it was never yours and never will be

IT came be for you not the other way round accept it

or why would you be here in the first place?

do you think YOU came first? are special? did plant come be for you? did the dinos? what is it you think you are?


look at your planet look at it close then you will understand you will ALL face a question you are not ready to answer yet

Utopia? or ?.....
