Informant #16903: there is no purpose

Informant #16934: To procreate, just like every other creature on this planet. To move forth the wheels of evolution. Generally, to shag as many people as possible and move the ol' species foward.

Informant #16941: uncertain

Informant #16953: To gain wisdom and compassion.

Informant #16975: The purpose of life is getting wiser. Eventually the human race should realise that we have to live together, co-operate, take care of nature, don't eat animals, and so forth. It's a pity most people don't want to use or enlargen their intelligence.

Informant #16982: mating with pandas

Informant #17000: Im not telling.

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. I think it is relatively simple, but it sometimes takes years for people to figure it out, if they figure it out at all.

Informant #17046: To live life in such a way as to be able to say "You're welcome" rather than "Thank you" when you meet God.

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 #17054: just to live

Informant #17061: dance muzic is the key to everything

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 #17307: I think every person has his own definition. For some it might be to have as much fun as possible, for other it might be to be as successful as possible and others just want to be loved and be healthy. For me, I don't think there is one certain purpose. For me life is on the one hand to have fun, enjoy life, basically having a good time. Life is short, so why should I be depressed half of it? Another purpose is to be there for the persons I truely love.

Informant #17309: I do not know.

Informant #17461: to reproduce

Informant #17470: to live it

Informant #17473: To understand ones'self and surroundings enough to acheive freedom from materializm, or, physicality as it were - thus, becoming one with our creator once again.

Informant #17613: To manifest the fullest blooming, the most whole creative expression of who we are -- this unique intersection of matter and mind and moment. 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 #17654: I realy can't say because half of the time I'm hardly living.

Informant #17659: to learn the meaning of afterlife

Informant #17664: To love and be happy and spread love and happiness

Informant #17669: Who cares what the purpose is, we are here so should make the most of it.

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 #17690: There is no meaning to life. The search for meaning is the great pathos of existence.

Informant #17712: we are here, then we leave. just like any other animal. eventually we will be extinct, or a more advanced race will rise and we will become food.

Informant #17719: To be the best that you can be to yourself and others.

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

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

Informant #17951: not sure.

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

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

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 #25681: The purpose of life is a journey in which one is able to discover their true selves and understand their importance of being in the world.

Informant #25898: To actuallize our potential.

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 #26583: Give back more to society than you received

Informant #27671: to be and let be

Informant #36647: Life seems to be an equation such as 2 + 2 = 4, just infinitely more complicated. It is merely our vanity, our high regard for what we see as our 'higher consciousnessí' which drives us to believe their must be some higher purpose for us, a drive I share.

Informant #190440: There is no purpose. There is coincidence and consequence of individual action.

Informant #196176: That is a very huge question that could take a whole paper to answer. Right now, at this point in my life, I think the purpose of life is to enjoy every minute with the people I love and to not take anything for granted. I think we as a society need to help each other grow and should not be judgemental or racist or sexist is anyway (We have come a long way in the last 100; even 50 years, but our world still has a lot of obstacles to still over come) I think the purpose of life is to love ourselves and our bodies that our mother and God has selfishly given us.

Informant #198351: becoming one with yourself and answering the question

Informant #226677: Live in harmony with your family and friends

Informant #228190: that is for me to know, and you to find out. THe purpose of life is experience and learning. asking this question shows you are not ready to know the meaning.

Informant #268772: I don't know the purpose of all life, but I know the purpose I have created for myself. I want to look back on my life, when I am old and wrinkled, and know that I lived each moment as hard as I could. I want to look at all the hurt and all the happiness and know I led a life full of experiences, people, and love.

Informant #268863: make people around you and yourself happy
