no one knows and its immpossible to know or even to imagine... Chuck

You are so close to saying exactly what the purpose of life is.

The purpose of life is to imagine. More specifically the driving force of the universe is to develop beings that imagine. It is our ability to imagine that survives our death, for it exists in a non-physical medium.

And the highest form of imagination available to most humans is words. Imagination with words gives us the ability to think and reason and communicate. I suspect that our very existense in the afterlife may depend on words. They are the signals of our existense. They constitute our identity, our history. And words themselves, as like in mantras or prayer, have a power over supernatural life and intelligence.

In the beginning was the word...Apparently, it`s only words that can aurvive the creation of the universe. So our reason for existense is probably to feed our imagination, and perhaps more specifically our words, into the godhead.
