    I am doing a film, 'Son of Sin' which can be found on my profile.I think it would be interesting to acquire the views of others before completing the script. What are your thoughts, feel free to express yourselves.

      You are presuming that there IS a purpose, but there is no indication of any such thing outside of theological claims.

      My answer would then be "none" outside of what we make up for our own personal life; what we want it to be or produce.

        Presumption is an understatement. I know there is, I therefore  need the views of others to better expound on the truth.

          If I'm reading you right, you know thee is a purpose in mankind existence.  I would be interested in how you define "purpose" and what evidence produces the "knowledge" that such a purpose exists.

          As I said, outside of unfounded theological claims, I have never heard of any such evidence and would be interested in seeing some.

            The same evidence which propels me to believe in this 'purpose' is greater than the lack  of evidence which propels you not to.

            Therefore what propels you to believe there is no purpose? There is more to cause, my friend, than there is to the absence of it.

              I can't find any evidence for a purpose, neither apparently can anyone else.  Your answer is quite indicative; a second claim that there is evidence without specifying what it is pretty much says it all.

              Given that, it is unlikely there is a purpose.

                Wilderness, you seem quite intelligent. I know there is a purpose, and sure my responses have been in proposition of  "a purpose" despite lack of specification.However I need to solicit the understanding of others before I relay my own personal views so that I will not thwart theirs. Visit my profile and you will see the review and teaser trailer. Let me ask you this, what came first, the chicken or the egg?

                  The egg of course. Eggs were in use millions of years before the first chicken. Now if you asked what came first the chicken or the chicken egg you'd have an interesting question.

                  [You asked what came first, the chicken or the egg?

                  Because eternity always has been and always shall be, every part and attribute of every life type has always been and always shall be.  A first only comes when something begins and ends and only the particular living manifestations has a time of beginning and ending, their eggs, sperm and every level of their growth has always been and shall be, although the eggs or sperm aren't produced in the individuals until reaching a certain age. 

                  The metaphor for existence is the Phoenix, the sun bird, which lives 500 years and burns itself completely up then 500 years later hatches again out of its own ashes.  Its burning itself up and hatching out of its ashes are like, the hatching, first light to sunrise and, the burning, sunset to dark of a day.

          Well so far we have not heard what you think the purpose of life is. If it is to be some imaginary gods slave then you can keep that one for yourself. It is certainly not my purpose.

          There is a purpose to life, but it is to be found in what we do. It is our function. The purpose of a car is what it does. The purpose of a human is in what it does.  The purpose of anything is in what it does.

          Now that is our functional purpose. But we have personal purposes. Well many people do. I really don't. I don't need a purpose. I am alive. There is no need for there to be a purpose for my existence.

          Any purpose a god has for you is it's purpose, not yours.

      My view on the purpose of life is for the various lifeforces to evolve through existence learning every iota of existence so we will at sometime become the lifeforce of existence.  On earth it's about Karma and Reincarnation, each lifeforce incarnates as every life type the lifeforce have had or will have any major interactions with to experience the emotions they felt doing it. 

      When we arrive on the next plane we oversee all lifeforces which are following through the exact reincarnating pattern we followed as we evolved through this plane while preparing to evolve to the next.  That's the short of it, if you want to see it in depth go to http://prop1.org/protest/elijah/vision.htm#unsealed where I used religion and scientific findings to explain it.

      You can take the meaning of life in a couple of different ways. One being the scientific, basic, and non-human exclusive meaning of life and that is to pass on your genes. From that standpoint, the meaning would be to pass your genes and your distinct combinations of DNA down the line of the human species in hopes that your strain will live on forever.

      You can also have the honor and domination standpoint where the purpose is to pass down your family name, as this is what China used to do/still does. This is in the sense that you want, say the last name "Roc" to live on and have it so it is possible to trace this name back to you.

      Finally, we have the various metaphorical and theological standpoints. In short, a few would be: "To serve God." "To become one with the universe." "To achieve Nirvana." "To better ourselves and the people around us." "To leave a positive impact on the world." "To live on forever through an action you have taken." And so on. I personally don't have a true view on this, however I think it would be nice to be remembered for something positive or for my family name to be passed on through generations. Good luck!

      I think he whole purpose of life, really depends on the person, I think it all started with the creation of man, in the garden of Eden. Before sin and the fall of man, before sin man and woman enjoyed each other living in paradise with God and him watching us being happy with each other and  not have a care or worry, then sin came along and ruined everything and it just gets worse as time goes on, and we spend our entire lives trying to get back to where it all started. So to me the point of life is making God happy.  I don't think people should hate each other, because some have more, or what color a persons skin is. Recent scientific study showed that  we all come from one man and one woman so that makes everyone on the planet related in some since or another.

    Just thinking out loud.
    Can there be any purpose for us in this life if this life is all that there is.
    All of my life is but a very little while. Can any true purpose be a purpose only for a little while?           I guess a single raindrop does have a purpose but that purpose is common for every rain drop.      To wet a small portion of dirt for only a little while.
        It seems to me that if the individual human has a true purpose in and of themselves outside of the need to survive comfortably, that purpose would have existed before the person is. And the results of that purpose being accomplished or not would have its affects long after the person is gone.

    But if the conciousness of the person existed before the person is, The effects of the purpose being accomplished could or would continue long after the person was.  And that person never need to know what that purpose was.   Does the raindrop know what it's purpose is?
       I think our purpose is to BE  and to experience many emotions while experiencing many things.
       This is only the tip of the iceburg.   I'm pretty sure that the rest of the iceburg that we don't see is made of the same stuff.   
    or something like that.

        exactly!      ....     I agree in principle with your previous comment about Karma and reincarnations,
        I'm not so sure that we reincarnate or if we have simultanious life experiences. Who knows they might be chronoligical AND simultanious.   Either way, the higher self always benefits regardless of the experience.

          Some call it parallel lives and in a sense I agree with it.  The way I see parallel lives works is because life happens in cycle with everything repeating themselves exactly the same way.  Each lifeforce as man must live the whole 182,000 year cycle at least once as a boy, as a girl and once alternating between genders or at least three times alternating between the genders.  In doing so we will live several time in the same place in time.  Here's an example. 

          Let's say in another civilization terminating time the messiah was Obama in this one he will be the messiah.  Because of what the messiah will do for Obama, when Obama is the messiah he will do the same thing the messiah will do for him at this time.  In that way Obama is living parallel to the same events he will be become the messiah in and Obama will be the sacrificial lamb like Jesus in a next civilization's terminating because he is the scapegoat like Barabbas in this one.

                The premise of my understanding resides on the belief that God resides within us; but not that we ourselves are Gods. I have witness what this means first hand hence the name of my film, "Son of Sin." There is so little known about ourselves for all we perceive to be true has been taught,and before that...that too was taught. Where is the originality? From whence does it come? You have made some incredibly valid points which I will take into consideration for the film. But it is worth noting that our existence is bent on thwarting the truth...Conscious-Subconscious-Spirit. We perceive but what is it that truly perceives? Even before we make that decision we have already made it...do you like black or white my friend, which suites you better? Please choose.

                  The kingdom of God is within you. Would that mean the Kingdom of Heaven is amongst you? People think heaven is a place far off in some distant galaxy or Jesus is the tree of life. To me it means Jesus is a branch in the tree of life and why would God, or an old tree fight with its own branches. Why would a Jealous God Yahweh fight with millions of other Gods?I found within everyone is God and so is the purpose in Life.

                  This next five year is focus is on building  off grid Eco villages and study what does it take to make life expectancy last longest

                    The Purpose of Life

                    "The Son of Sin" Its premise resides on the life of John Asher, a wealthy banker who grew weary of his life which was consumed by the world and vanity. In search of life's purpose, he pushes himself to the brink of insanity in an attempt to perceive the incomprehensible whilst sacrificing everything; wealth, stature, family, transcending all we thought we knew about life. Fortuitously, he discovers the truth of life presented to him through divine inspiration in a semi-conscious state. However, this state actually initiates his true struggles with him trying to find his way out of his semi-conscious labyrinth (insanity). He comes face to face with the sub-conscious manifestation of himself which was sown by his own deeds (Son of Sin). The only thing standing between his mental illusion and reality is... himself. Will his message be delivered?

      "I guess a single raindrop does have a purpose but that purpose is common for every rain drop.      To wet a small portion of dirt for only a little while."

      I disagree.  The purpose of a single raindrop is to sustain life - how long that life is sustained depends not on the single raindrop but on the total accumulation of various nutrients throughout an entire lifetime.  I believe the same for all life forms.  (omg.  scarry...too many years of adulthood wasted by not eating properly!  lol)

      To respond to the op:

      There is no single purpose to life just as there is no single life form that is "one of a kind".  There is more than one blade of grass, more than one tree, more than one cloud, etc. 

      So, what could possibly be the purpose of each and every single life form?  I believe it depends on the individual - but does the individual get to choose their own purpose?  I don't think so. 

      I think an individuals purpose is not always clearly defined.  Sometimes the individual will know what their purpose is, other times they wont and it could take several generations for their purpose to be realized/achieved. 

      My logic?  Everything happens for a reason - including an individual life.

    Life is purpose itself. It exists to be and to purpose being.
    Without it, there is nothing. Even "death" is controlled and regulated by life.
    So, asking what is the "meaning" or "purpose" of Life is cyclical logic.
    Rather than ask this question, look honestly on yourself and see how you have represented life, since you are a reflection of it. Not the things you have done/not done -assets, losses- but how you have reflected life.

    James.

    PS, as for G/gods, this shows true ignorance of "Life", since the Ineffable Everything is far beyond the parameters of titles of lord, master, etc -if a person lives as a reflection of Life. { the meaning or word used to describe: lord, slave-master, ruler, creditor comes from ancient Aramaic, ba`al root actually, that is "god" } Essentially anyone using the term is referencing a pagan ideology -a hierarchy of rulers or [fake] entities -like demons, demi-gods or gods. Evidence of ba`al still exists today, predominantly in the Hindu belief, which has literally millions of "gods" ruled by one "supreme god" or in Islam who calls on Allah which translates "The God of gods" or Judaism who "named/titled" attributes of Creator {ie. El Elohe Isra El :a name attributed by Jacob, who built an altar and sacrificed to "The God of Israel" and the place is forever known as El Elohe Israel. }. But even "The god of Israel" said,"I desire grace not sacrifice." For grace/mercy is Life and sacrifice is death.

    If correct, the [One] you are referencing is actually not a "G/god" and all humans are a reflection of [Him], [He] being Life itself.

      J A Charles,
      The definition of man, mind able to comprehend all things, tells us what our purpose is, to learn to comprehend all things, the other things in existence are different manifestations for the lifeforce to also experience and comprehend once we cease to reincarnate.

      1. jacharless profile image82
        jacharlessposted 3 years ago in reply to this

        You are correct in saying, "The definition of man is a mind able to comprehend all things". But, the divide comes after when you mention to learn. If man knows -is fully comprehensible, he does not need to know or need to learn. Why then do most assume it is our "job" or a "requirement" to learn the things of Life? Because they have forgotten who they truly are. And in that forgetfulness, have forgotten who Life is and why [He] made man. To compensate and medicate that amnesia, man has designed countless things to replicate who he is or bring him closer to that original stasis using both sides of Religion: sensationalism {often titled religion} and equation {science} . Unfortunately, as the sayings go, this leads to death -either by exhaustion for trying, or worse, madness { which is the definition of sin itself }. And madness can only end in death. Madness is the sacrifice of Reason. And all sacrifice ends in death. Man need only remember [ cause all things to come to his remembrance ] to cure/heal the Rift of Ego, which gave birth to Reason and the quest to Understand once more.

        All things of creation were made before man, so that man would know them fully and enjoy them. And in my own opinion, these things were made to prepare him for his purpose: to reflect the ruach, pneuma, ohm and create -even as the ruach created man and empowered him with Life. For what is the ruach, pneuma, ohm but the breath of life itself -what most call the Life force or spirit in man? To quote the text most understand, "In [Him] [the Spirit] is Life and Life IS the light IN man

        As for reincarnation, no such thing. This is a religious construct. How can what is incarnate {completely manifest comprehension/ manifest Wisdom, perfection, immortal} be reincarnated, and for what purpose. It cannot. This is cyclical logic. An excuse to continue the cycle of sacrifice and reliance upon the Ego. So, in the end there is only one real choice: life, else the suffering from madness, the continuity of sacrifice and its reward, death.

          Mind able to comprehend all things is not the same as knowing all things and suggest we have to first experience every kind of experience all life types experiences, embedding them into our lifeforces so once we incarnate for our last time we cam begin to bring them into our conscious memories as we evolves through the rest of eternity, {a cycle}. 

          Nothing in existence has ever been created, eternity is in cycles which prevents creation from ever happening except the things man make without self-reproducing properties.  Also, there's no creator god, only the individual lifeforces which creates the body according to the eternal plan for that entity does spirit create.   

          Everything man have made is but a mechanical reproduction of ourselves,  computer the head, camera eyes, recorders ears; autos, bikes, ships, air and space craft our mobile abilities and in that respect we agree.   

          Some of everything, math, myth, science, religion and all other knowledge sources we have or will ever encounter has a place in  comprehending existence.  The ego, whatever that is, causes man to reject certain thing and hold fast to others,

    Aah, a very interesting question.

    The purpose of life is quite simple, in my opinion.

    It is shaping the future. Without us, the world doesn't exist.

    You see we, as a whole, shape the world around us. We shape our existance, we shape our future, we shape our fates.

    Have you ever tought why there are no aliens on Earth and why are we alone in the vast universe?

    The answer is as simple as it goes - people don't believe in Aliens. The more people believe in something, the more it becomes a reality. We are shaping the future. Mind over matter.

      Hmm...do you therefore believe that the world does not exist outside of the brain? Therefore this would denote that all we perceive including each other is nothing but an imaginative composition and by changing our thoughts we can alter our environment?

        No. Do you believe that?

        There is one reality and it is not observer driven. At least not by observation itself. The universe exists nicely without us and does not require us for it's existence. We each have our own interpretation of reality, but we do not all have separate realities. 

        Yes we, like all animals, shape our environment. But we do that by what we do with what we think, not by what we think alone. Doing is the key, not thinking. Thinking educates the instinctive, which makes doing things well possible.

        I have written a number of hubs on this subject. In fact the first hub I wrote is called: Observer Driven Reality Check.

        The implication of observer driven reality is that there is no objective reality or objective truth. Reality is then perspective based. However, if you take that stand, then like other persectivists you shoot yourself in the foot; because  by default you are claiming that your view is an objective fact. It's a view that is in an absurd state of logical contradiction, as you have just said that there are no objective facts.

    I think the "purpose" is what each individual makes their purpose.

    Honestly, the purpose of life is to procreate, or so I believe.

    But that is a boring purpose! Live to procreate and then... die? So, what's the point?

    As humans, we need to give ourselves some purpose of our own! Career, family or simply to have fun and enjoy yourself! Whatever it is, just make sure you enjoy your life, because you only get to live it once!

    For a non-believer the purpose is having a great time, enjoying every second possible.

    For a believer the purpose is to live the word of God. Honor what Jesus has done to save us, humans, from eternal death when God comes back to earth. They want to serve God and earn a place in heaven, eternal life.

    I wish to include: Apocalypse 22:12-21

        I guess, at least if you think all nonbelievers are hedonists. 

        Personally, I don't know of any that are but it makes a nice insult.

          Sorry, it wasn't meant to be an insult. I'm very sorry for this misunderstanding.

            StayAwakeNow  A decent insult

            To lie to someone is to insult them, how did StayAwakeNow lie in order to feel sorry? His sense of straightforwardness and simplicity makes it beautiful: you having nothing up your sleeve;

            When people are decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out all right. I love living without guilt , jealouy and pay any debts. I'd rather be poor than live in fear of a God or Satan, stayawake live fearlessly with purpose

            bah insult. His sense of straightforwardness and simplicity makes it beautiful: you having nothing up your sleeve;

            When people are decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out all right.I love living without guilt , jealouy and pay any debts. I'd rather be poor than live in fear like that. Good-bye to you

    In the Christian view, everybody who was ever and will be born on this planet have a reason and a purpose. Each person will be different, but everybody was born for a special reason that God had planned for their life even before they were born. God has a predetermined plan for everyone's lives, which is called God's Will. The thing is that all who believe in the Lord, repent of their sins, and believe that the Lord Jesus Christ died for their own sins and the sins of everyone else in the world, will one day end up living in heaven for all of eternity. A place of joy, peace, and endless time to praise and worship God. So, the Christian view of the purpose of life is to bring glory to God by living righteously, bringing others to the faith, and following His Will.
