    Is there a destination to which we travel? Or are we just here for a time? My point of view is that the whole purpose of being here is simply to be here. What say you?

    I'm here to post my inane ramblings on a religious internet forum. I do want to go to Australia at some point.

    Oh...and my purpose of being born and living this life is to experience a life as a human. As far as a destination is concerned, the travel, in my understanding, is not all that different than awakening from a dream.

    The destination is a hole in the ground or a fiery furnace ;-). It's the journey that counts. Make the most of that journey.

    Your body has the destination to the crematorium, but perhaps your spirit is immortal.

    Or let it happen and it will take you where you need to be. :)

    If that's your belief, it isn't mine. What is immortal is the atoms you are composed of.


    One thing about life, no matter which route you take, it will always end

    Maybe consider the possibility? Participation is never a requirement. :)

    Your body will pass, but life is always present.

    When i was a child i considered the possibility, as i became an adult and learned the physics childish ideas no longer were a thing for me.


    While life exists life will be present, entropy gives only a narrow time span (in universal terms) for life to exist.
