 I shall light a candle of understanding in thine heart,
which shall not be put out. - II Esdras 14:25

The Sound Philosophical Foundation:
The purpose of life

First some questions. What is the purpose of life? Is it to grow, expand, spread, be fecund and multiply? Is it to be used as a tool or an agency of some sort? Is it harvested in some way by the creator? Or, is it to amuse or entertain the Creator?

Let me ask it a different way. What would you LIKE the purpose of life to be?

Here's another angle on it. In the final analysis, after any and every enterprise or development, there is one last or ultimate result that is desired by every higher life form, including all humans and God. What is this simple outcome?

This question is seldom if ever asked, and yet the simple answer is one of the cornerstones for understanding the truth, and the simple answer should be on the tip of your tongue and be stated with calm conviction. Yet, almost no one can readily give what should be the obvious answer.

Until the seeker of truth can articulate the answer and be certain that this is the SINGULAR and ONLY right answer, he does not know himself nor others well enough to proceed very much further in the search for truth.

There are really only two modes within which one can live. If the universe is not set up to deliver what we want and need, we live in some level of anxiety or fear of disappointment, loss, pain, suffering and eventually death. If the universe IS set up to deliver completely what we want and need, we can live in a state of worship. Fear and worship are the two sides of the coin. Eros and Thanatos, fulfillment and death are another way to characterize the two sides.

These two sides are the framework or foundation within which we should start in building a relevant, legitimate belief system. Systems that don't address these head on are just inane and worse than worthless.
