    youll get alot of dumb answers like 'to smoke weed!', etc.
    but when you think about it its a good question.

    all the showering, teeth brushing, eating, drinking, sleeping, working, etc..what does it all add up to? is life really 'worth it' ?

    when you think about only a small fraction of your life is thoroughly enjoyed.

    ive thought about this alot..good post.

    mapo- me and you are pretty damn similiar... i liked your response...

    im going to goto florida i think for that one paint jam in november or whenever it is, and we are going to kick it...

    more serious answer to this thread:

    i think about this shit all the time to, is life really worth it, seems like money owns everything, without it life sucks majorly. i hate how people try to be "cool" or how shit on tv gets so trendy and whatever else, its like nobody can just be cool being them...

    i dont know though, i need to find some more things that are worth doing in life so it is more meaningful...

    If you haven't found a meaning for your life, what's your purpose? Your born to die, it's unavoidable...your whole life you're just prepairing yourself to die. If you've found no purpose or meaning in your life, is it really worth your time living it? I feel sometimes, not that the world would be better of without me, but that i'd be better off without the world...if that makes any sense.

    Some people exist because they decide too, some exist out of habit.

    "I think, therefore I exist"

    So once you realize your own existance, do you live consciously or do you return to a habit ridden consciousness?

    you dont need to find anything, you need to take a look at the little things in life that you already have, and realize how meaningful they are to your everyday life.

    To understand our place in life we must first understand life itself. The world is full of stuff. You can break it down into good, bad stuff, you can break it down into religions, nations, cultures... Ultimately what is good and bad is the same basically though despite these divisions. The law is simple, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." But people make it complicated. There is an unfair balance of power so you cannot always do unto others as you would have them do unto you. This leads into things like mind control, oppression, killing sprees etc. etc. The list goes on and on. You could spend you're whole life trying to explain this. So the world is unfair and cruel right? Should we do anything about it? Wouldn't you want someone to do something about it? Of course. But what the hell can I do? Many things we can do. Anything we can do if you beleive in it strongly enough. heh, thats tough. Do what you can, but make it worthwhile. If you live for yourself, then you are going to lose yourself. Not only that but you become a tool for the purposes of others which may or may not be a good thing. Even worse you may not even know.
    The most important thing is to reach out to peoples hearts and minds. Love is the law. This is the greatest of all the Passions. If you do things out of love, you cannot regret it.
    I've puzzled over this stuff my whole life and still there is such a long way to go.... The journey may never end. At least in this lifetime.

    Why exist?

    If you need to even fucking question that kill yourself, and find out why exist.
