What is your philosophy on life, NG?

In other words, what do you live for? What is the point of life?

Materialism, nihilism, and humanism are examples of core philosophies. Please note that multiple philosophies can overlap.

A big part of me is an altruist personally. I have plenty of other beliefs too but I don't think it's necessary to go on and on about myself when we could just get on with the discussion already.

So what's your philosophy on life, NG?

If you don't know the technical term just write down what you believe in in plain English.

Not entirely

I don't follow 100% of both, and the chunks that I do follow don't conflict

Most of the basic teachings of buddha, nothing is lost in the universe, everything changes, the laws of cause and affect (Karma), the four truths...

Pretty much everything except for no violence and sexual deviancy and such, I'm not even sure what they're called

if you're talking about existential nihilism, which means that life has no objective value, then implying that believing in that brand of philosophy makes the believer depressing is fucking stupid

i don't believe life has any value but i don't live my life in a substantially different manner than most people do. in fact i only subscribe to existential nihilism because there's no evidence that life has any meaning

admittedly i'm not all smiles and sunshine 24/7, but i'm not known to be uber-depressed and i'm fairly certain most people who share my philosophy can say the same

The point of my life is in my opinion why nature/god has made us, to search for answers to questions, any kind, and every possible question needs to be answered at least once.

Seems impossible

And of course humanism.

There might be more for me but I can't think of more right now.

I am evil.

It just occurred to me that I don't really have any beliefs when it comes to why we're here or how.

Goddamn agnosticism

I take little pieces of everything with Fallibilism in the core. I don't believe life has a purpose, but I do believe a purpose can be made. I believe all of this exists and we are not just a brain in a vat. I believe in absolute good and evil whether you agree or not. I believe humans are the superior beings on Earth, but there are higher beings elsewhere (maybe not even the universe). I don't believe in an eternal soul, but I do believe in a spirit.

Personally I don't really believe there is any meaning to life, but that doesn't mean there isn't any value to life.
You have to make your own meaning. For me, life is simply meant to be enjoyed.

We live and we die, make peace with it, and enjoy it while you can, because in the end nothing really matters.
