Humans Try To Make Sense Of Things

Hi Yasir,

Humans are apt to see something 'deeper' to the things that we observe than what is merely apparent. If we see a couple holding hands, we often conclude that they know each other, have a relationship together, maybe even love each other and possibly married. Similarly, if we view this wonderful life we want to read into 'all of this' something deeper than the fact that we are just here or here for some accidental or 'dumb' mathematical/scientific reason.

The world is a wonderous place. And are being here is a wonderous moment. I think any attempt to read meaning into it looks for there to be a purpose to it all. Pragmatically, a crucial purpose would be for that purpose to involve not only human life, but our own unique human life. If it involves us, then maybe we are important not only for whatever events that we may cause to happen, but maybe our existence should be extended indefinitely in order to serve this purpose.

That's what I prefer to think.

Warm regards, Harv
