I live my life for what I believe to be the human goal: universal domination. I believe civilization should advance until man knows absolutely everything about everything and has dominion over everything. I'm here to help that cause.

I live because I want to see what life is like. How it starts, how it progresses, and how it ends.
Then I'll do it all over again when im reincarnated.

My life as of yet has had no purpose. I refuse to die until it has had some impact of some kind.

I live for everything! lifes great, im pretty lucky to be fair, but I live for waking up at 8 o clock and seeing a blue sky outside. or the first cigarettes of the day. or food. or girls. or friends.

most notably, music, sex and weed/booze. love chilling with friends in a field.

Or the feeling before you go to sleep, or after a hard days work meeting mates ina pub and just chilling. Or waking up at 5am and cycling for an hour to get to work, have a cigarette somewhere beautiful. or going to club night, or a squat party, the feeling after an all nighter when your chilling with mates in someones car and you know theres a sunday roast at home. Or falling asleep with a girl in your arms, or waking up with a girl in your arms. Lying naked in bed with a girl just after.. pure feeling.

The breeze in your face ona summers day.. i could go on for eer man.


lifes beautiful to me. sure it has a lot of downs, but it has a lot of ups.

i live for the moment and the future :)

and who cares if nothing matters when your dead? your dead. you can leave a legacy or not, you'll always be remembered by friends and familly. but once again, who cares.. your dead lol!

oh and also, the people that say they wanna make an impact, have kids. thats probally one of the best things you can do :thumbup:

'I live my life for what I believe to be the human goal: universal domination. I believe civilization should advance until man knows absolutely everything about everything and has dominion over everything. I'm here to help that cause.'

i love this idea, i hope i can see it begin in my life time. once we terraform other planets, let everything stew for a few million years.. STAR WARS!!

plus humans rules, we're natures miracle :) i just hope we don't doom ourselves before we can expand to other planets and its pretty much impossible to polute ourselves to death :)

After reading this and thinking about it, this is what I have been thinking about for several months. It had never occured to me until then that death looms over everybody's lives; each and every person is continuing, completely ignorant that they will die one day. They have put that fact aside and ignored it to the point where it does not consiously occur to them that they will die. I realised this. Every word we say, every breath we take and every heartbeat takes us closer to death - You cease to exist.

I do not have a reason for life, nor knowledge of existance after death. I'm not stupid enough to commit suicide but life really has no meaning for me. What does a legacy mean if you cease to exist? No. Life is pointless, the very existance of everything and everyone is pointless. Because of this I don't care about lots of things that most people care about. I am not the person I was before realizing that we all die and we can't stop this. Whether for better or worse I don't know. I just know what I can't laugh and happiness seems pointless. But I am more aware, I think the expression "Ignorance is bliss" really does mean something. I am undecided whether I would really like to go back to a life ignorant of death, or simply ignoring it to the point where I never think about it for my whole life. Would it really be better?

The question is, if you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would your reaction to this be?
Mine would be that of curiosity probably, I've often wondered what happens when one dies and what it's like.

You might say that I'm depressed, but the fact that we will all die is a sobering reality that we all know is true, however much you try to argue otherwise.



You sound like my friend = who is now in a mental home.

He seemed to think none realised they were going to die. Of course everyone knows this, I'm pretty sure everyones had those thoughts before.

You know from like a ridiculously early age your going to die. Get over it, if it's pointless then have fun.

It's not a sobering reality either cos who cares? your dead, the only bad bits dying and hopefully for most of us it won't take too long.

Seriously i've got a big problem with this because my good mate was chatting about death and denial and how everyones blind and nothing matters, n now hes fooked in da head.. :(

Just chill out :thumbup:

Theoretically, the only real 'reason for living' is the human instict of survival. Without that natural/animalistic instinct, then I guess nobody would care whether they lived or died.

I'd hate to die old, or in a residential home. I dunno... I have a very idealistic vision of the world, and very strong opinions of what I think is right and wrong, and I seek activities that best fit that image.

I guess my main motivation in life is to make the society I live in a better one. That's why I joined medical school - it's certainly not the reason I left it - and that's why I want to work in health and social care when I'm older, hopefully something to do with mental health care.

So long as I can afford a modest quality of life, I really don't care about money, houses or cars. Seeing the impact my work has on other people is reward in itself. Since we all have to work, I guess that's the main reason I live for.

@ginger: I have one question to that, why? People are going to die anyways even with your help. You helping is merely 'slowing the process in which they end'. After having both my parents die in a car accident last year, I've realized 2 things about life: 1) it can happen suddenly/unexpectedly, and 2) the more attached you get to life, the more painful it is emotionally when it inevitably ends. Oh, and 3) 13.8mil in insurance/lawsuit money is not worth losing the 2 people who raised you.

I'm sorry to hear that. I lost my own mother at 9 to pneumonia so I can somewhat relate to it.

Your questions got me thinking about the usefulness of medicine at all. If death is an inevitability, why bother trying to keep patients alive, at huge expense to the public purse, for longer than Nature designed to keep them alive for in the first place? I think the OHCM says it best on page 6:

It is one of Nature's great insults that she should prefer to put all her eggs in the basket of a defenceless, incompetent neonate rather than the tried and tested custody of our own superb minds. But as our neurofibrils begin to tangle, and that neonate walks into a wisdom that eludes us, we are forced to give Nature credit for her daring idea. Of course, Nature, in her careless way, can get it wrong: people often die in the wrong order (one of our chief roles is to prevent this misordering of deaths, not the phenomenom of death itself).

So we must admit that, on reflection, dying is a brilliant idea, and one that most unlikely we could ever have thought of ourselves.


This makes more sense to me. Ideally, everyone should die of old age, or of their own sane volition, not in a tragic car accident as your parents did. It is true that life in itself is not a reason for choosing to live, but neither is murder, or a random accident, or a suicidal depressive episode, or an easily treatable medical condition a proper reason for somebody to die. I believe the latter is what is meant by 'misordering of deaths'. To some degree, when a patient dies of old age, there's comfort in knowing nothing could be done and it was almost 'meant to happen'.

Judging someone else's "right time to die" isn't what I or anyone else on Earth is here for. I just want to maintain their quality of life until either themselves, or Nature, makes that judgement for us.

Having a high level Runescape account is a great start :P


I live to have fun. I'm an atheist and don't believe in the greater good.

Here in Belgium you wouldn't get more than 50k. Not that I'd trade any amount of money for my parents of course.

Plus I think the whole teenage girl thing will end soon (hopefully), because my girlfriend is absolutely in love with him(she is 18), and im beginning to feel threatened by his [Justin Bieber] dashing looks.

My reasons to live? Well, that's an easy one. I would say that it is the joy and happiness I find in this world, ranging from simple things such as a joke with a friend and to accomplish something in RS, to more complex and bigger things, such as sharing a romantic moment with my girlfriend. And here I enter the main reason: The love I share with those that are the closest to me. My family, my friends and my wonderful, beautiful girlfriend. I know she will most probably never read this...But, Anh yêu em.

I think that to have a reason is to have the desire and yearning to do something beforehand. You can't have reason to live because you were not existent beforehand; you simply have motivation to live.

Just an opinion of how the topic's worded. Anyways I'd say my motivation among all is fear of death, the desire for intellect, and to change what I can for the better.

I live because I was born, and I am alive because I have no reason to kill myself and no diseases that will result in my death.
Bottom line, I guess I'm content with life? xD
