Is there a grand unified theory, one-fits all, about life?

Well is there?
Everybody has its own formula, there are tons of books telling you the real answer.
Do you still believe there is a one-fits all theory about life?
I am not saying there isn't...
I think each life has its own meaning, its own theory that works, its own explanations.
But is there a common goal to all humans?

I have no idea but I am sure when the new world order kicks in they will use one major unified religion.

u dont even define life then how can u mean a common ground one ? from my guess living to u is eternity in god life, so i suggest death as the base to ur common life

YES!

And the summary of THAT theory is "We just don't know ®".

The concept of 'Life' is like a math formula, and can be as simple as 2 + 2.

No one respond with that "no right or wrong beliefs" or "different viewpoints" excuse, either. 2 + 2 will always equal 4. If anyone believes it equals -12, they will be wrong.

There can be only one answer. If you want; only one way, truth, and life.
If you disagree, by default you believe 2 + 2 can = ∞

Math is the invention of man =) so that could be debated

I think you are looking at it wrong. Yes 2+2=4, but maybe its not about the answer and more about the questions?

I am sure their are almost infinite ways to express "4" or life.

Oh and to answer the OP, I would have to say that Life exists.

If it turns out we are artificial, well I will eat my artificial hat

Not to sound too cliche' and not disrespecting your post, but, Id' think that; If it LIVES, it can DIE, would be a fairly unifying principal.

That is, of course, if you subscribe to the idea that everyone dies, and doesn't just continue on in some other fashion, on some other plane, incarnation, dimension, level of vibration, or whatever.

In which case, the unifying principal would be something along the lines of solidarity for all things 'life', I'd think.

To feel good and avoid feeling bad?
To be better, to do better? To evolve?
To be good to all, including yourself?
To have wishes and work on accomplishing them?
To just do what we want to do?
To be selfless? To be selfcentered? To be both?

Yes....to survive long enough to reproduce.

(not all humans want to reproduce you say?) That is only because they have made a "choice" not to reproduce by using a higher functioning part of the brain that dominates over this unified theory of survival of ones species.

Maybe we are eternal in spirit but to live and die is just facts, iam talking about goals, meaning, common goals that all humans share.

Survive and reproduce? Is that our common goals? There are people that dont want to live, others will not reproduce...

It is not common to all humans

Common goals to all humans? Is there any?

Math was no more invented by man than electricity was.

Hint, they weren't. They were discovered and utilized.

I am sure their are almost infinite ways to express "4" or life.

You're basically saying you can use 2 + 2, or 10 - 6, or .05 * 80, and it will still equal 4, correct?
Then look at it this way; if I asked you to come up with an equation in which the answer equaled 4, you could come up with an infinite number of them (this represents the number of expressions you referred to); however, it still is only solvable in one correct way.. PEMDAS


In other words, their will always be a key component to solving any question, and if that key component is not used as the basis - or foundation - it will not work.

i dont get ur 2 + 2 thing means

if u mean maths equation then it is surely much more complex then this, in truth it is all logical sameness facts yes but free so never additions involved while freedom is the epsilon that is all and any reason of objective existence, bc truth in truth is not an equation but a fact of absolute superiority values right to exist always

To avoid pain and seek love.

Some people like pain and avoid love, is it wrong to them? To you, yes, but to them, is it wrong?

How can you be sure?
