Our Purpose? Jan. 29th, 2013 @ 06:13 PM Reply

So a few months ago I did shrooms for the second time and took too many and started tripping so many balls my friends had to call the hospital because they couldn't calm me down. I ended up getting taken to the hospital in an ambulance, and it was the craziest ride of my life. Believe me, coming out of a shroom trip on a hospital bed has got to be one of the most fucked up feelings a person can experience.

So anyway, ever since the trip I've found it almost impossible to not think about the universe as a whole and why we are here, or why it is here. What is the point of existence? It seems to me that we are all physical beings that have a certain amount of time to exist, and all we are doing is filling that time by doing... things. There's no large mission or major task that needs to be accomplished. Even if there was something beyond us, some major truth we're supposed to discover, what could it actually be?

In order to keep myself sane, I've decided that life is simply a playground. We're here to be here so that there isn't nothing. I was just wondering what your theories are or if any of you feel any real sense of purpose.

Being human, we can give meaning to things.
The trick is to find as many things as possible that you think are worth to give meaning to.

I've had similar thoughts before and came to the same conclusion as you. I don't think that there's any purpose to existence. The way I can sum it up is we just exist. There is nothing else. How you choose to act on this is up to you. Personally, I'd go for what's going to bring me the most happiness and satisfaction in life.

On another topic, damn, they shouldn't have taken you to the hospital unless there was something physically wrong with you. It probably just made you freak out more. The media has used this in the past to paint hallucinogens as dangerous (namely Salvia) even though the hospital visits weren't medically significant. It makes the perfect sensationalist headline, "The drug most parents don't know about is landing children in the hospital. Are YOUR kids next?"

That would imply passing on black etnicy genes, which is not okay.

Yeah, they didn't realize they could have just put me in my friends room and let me chill out. Considering in the time it took me to get from my friends house to the hospital was only about 5 minutes and I calmed down about 10 minutes after I got there. They should have waited it out a little longer. Plus the bitches made me pay for the ambulance. $350 down the drain (plus the 60 bucks for the shrooms).

The only good thing that came from that night was when I hit on the hot nurse I had while trippin balls.

It's always chilling to me to read about ancient civilizations that were around for more than twice as long as the US that quickly collapsed and vanished. When you're growing up your country and its culture essentially make up your entire world, so it just seems strange that it's all going to disappear some day.

There's entire languages and religions that are completely lost to time, and ultimately humanity will be.

Just because everyone's forgotten about something doesn't mean they aren't still being affected by it. People might forget you in 100 years, but the world will be dramatically different for you having existed in the first place.

But what's the point if there's not enough information left to trace it back to you?

what if time wasn't really long at all, like in reality 100,000,000,000,000 years was less than 5 mins inactuality, but humans have no way to perceive it at that fast, so something which is perceived as a practically meaningless milisecond or even less is stretched to humans for 100 years.

i thought about this a few months back.

I agree. Absolutely no purpose. We just kind of happened. Fucking weird, but no less weird than the whole rest of the universe.

You know what thought I had one time? And this is totally thanks to weed BTW. I thought that maybe we were the result of the universe trying to understand itself.

There's no meaning in life, except living it. Which is kind of a stupid meaning.

As humans, I think the point of living is to enjoy life with joy, accomplishments, etc. Humans are filled with emotions, and emotions determine...the 'fate' of a human...? Eh...it's complicated to think about. Discovering stuff fills the human mind with satisfication, which is a positive emotion. If you suffer from negative emotions, you're probably going to kill yourself because you don't see a point at continuing life, but you wouldn't want to kill yourself if you keep experiencing positive emotions. Because positive emotions feel good, and feeling good is...the point of living...?

The best thing to do is to not think about it.

Excellent theory. The universe itself could be on a pattern of creation and destruction without even knowing what it's doing.

Perhaps we're cells like the ones contain in our body. . . Making us part of an entity.
So really we're just fragments of some greater being. We. Can't. Ever. See. . . Because we are too small.

"I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet" ~ Agent Smith / The Matrix.

And with that statement I agree whole heartedly.
