Yo guys, tell me why u think people are so obsessed with the ‘meaning of life’. I think it has not a lot to do with rationality and more emotions. Check out this link on existential meaning: http://www.tc.umn.edu/~parkx032/CY-MEAN.html&h=9AQHI52Nz
@ray Butler, Compared to most on this website, I’m not certain on what I believe in and am new to the site and actually, everything being discussed, so I’m just trying not to run before I walk and rub anyone up the wrong way with anything I say! (Explanation of apology :P) But I’m glad you did impose your definition! I didn’t see the possible fault, so I’m glad you showed me!
@nikki Helen, when I first joined it was so I could start imposing my opinions and definitions on people. My first discussion was on capitalism and I had a phenomenally left view back then, socialist extreme borderline commie, and I threw all my shit out there and a man named Dan, my first friend I haven’t really seen him since, he is or was a troop in jackfuckistan or something and we basically changed each others views, for the better, we met in understanding and it was awesome.
I’ve continued growing these ways for some time now on this site. It’s great, throw your ideas out there, we are all here to grow, and people will point out things you may not have considered and you will do the same. If you say something and are wrong then you don’t get sent to the naughty corner, people will explain what you missed.
So just go for it, don’t fear being wrong, that is how people know where to correct you, and a lot of discussions on this site are of a nature where there is no wrong response, just varieties of points of view.
@ray Butler, I guess I’ve joined not to be heard, but to listen! I’ve never talked people with such broad and passionate opinions on topics such as this, (sadly enough), and it interests me enough to step back and listen to other peoples views, I’m here to expand! I will certainly throw my ideas out, I was just weary if anybody would throw back harder and more wiser[?] on the topic- I’m still finding what I believe in!
@nikki Helen, yeppers. Was dealing with this in school this week. Was asked what “sense of purpose” meant to me (and classmates). It is a much simpler concept and also can be a temporary situation rather than trying to swallow the whole enchilada of Life itself.
