    I personally think that the true meaning of life is different for each person. The overall view is to continue the survival of the human race, but for me it is something different:

    The true meaning of life, from my point of view, is to achieve inner peace.

    sex, drugs, and rock and roll.

    or maybe just sex. . .

    or maybe just videogames. . .


    if you look at it from a philosophical point or view to perceive because without perception the universe is both existing and nonexistent and without intelligent beings to perceive it the universe isn't truly and completely existent.

    unless your religious and belive the purpose of life is to live up to a god's expectations or something.

    Personally I think the meaning of life is just to enjoy it. But like Byuakuya said, I think it's different for everyone.

    IMO to grow, develop, and learn more along the way until said human race dies somehow.

    The meaning of life imo is just made up so that we have a 'goal' to do...

    The meaning of life is to achieve inner peace and happiness, but in a mature way, not doing drugs and believing that's being happy, obviously.

    i noticed you used the term believing, you should be happy, not believe that your happy cause you didn't do things you thought you shouldn't do.....

    to send your afterlifes a little bit further, once you die someone is reborn not as you, but with quality traits from you and they will grow again, this repeats until 1 of those people in your strand does something big..never done before..or helpful to humans.

    I believe the Meaning of Life is to Accomplish a goal. once that goal is complete, you then die.

    What I meant is that sometimes you believe you're happy when you do things that make you feel good, but are irresponsible or inmature in some way. For example, drugs, they do make you feel good, but in the long term, they only bring pain and suffering to you, your family or anyone around you. That's not happinness, that's why I used the term "believe". Happiness, IMO, should be a constant state of mind, something you achieve by a deep self-understanding. I think that if you're happy, you are happy all the time, not just when you do things you like, or if you are with a certain person, or whatever. You free yourself from all that external stuff (sry, couldn't a proper word, english is not my native language) and learn that you are the only one responsible for your life, and so, you are the only one who can make you happy. Happinness is inside all of us, it's just a matter of taking it out.

    Obiously, that doens't mean that you shouldn't want to do things you like, but you would understand that you don't need to. If you can do something you like or makes you feel good, do it, as long as it's not self-destructing; if you can't, enjoy life anyway, just be happy.

    At least that is my opinion on the subject.

    I agree with what a couple of other people have said on here already.

    I think that the meaning of life is different for everybody. For me I think it's to overcome certain problems I have and just sorta find inner peace, also to not live life regretting things.. making the most of every occasion so that one day, when I'm old and looking back on my life, I won't regret not doing anything.. and I'd know that I've done everything I wanted too do in life.
