    What's the purpose of existence, not only the human experience but 'everything?'

    The difference with this often asked question is I'd like you to answer with one sentence maximum.

    No cheating with massively long sentences!

    Something like: To grow and learn, in order to prepare us as relative children, for the next phase of existence which would be something akin to what we refer to as teens.

    Thanks!

    There is no 'purpose' other than than which each of us make of it.

      I certainly can't argue with that! Thanks for being the first to answer and for your thought provoking answer.

    To honor our spirits, even if it means facing rejection, which in turn, allows us to grow and see truths.

      Interesting answer. Perhaps along the lines of a Buddhist viewpoint which I am in agreement with.

    To create - anything - that wasn't here yesterday.  We've got the hands, we've got the know-how or ability to acquire it, and we've got a limited time to change reality in this space in time.  It's the thing we get to do while we're here that we can't when we're not - I can't let that opportunity pass me by!

    Probably why I own two handmade craft shops...be a producer!

      More than one sentence but nevertheless a good answer. Yes, I agree, it's all about creation. We are our own producer of the movie that is life so you are right, we should not miss this opportunity. Thanks!

    It's purpose is to exist for the goodness of it's own existence.

    There is no purpose-- life is just part of nature; the only purpose our own lives have are the purposes we choose to give it.

      That's a practical answer and does make sense. Thanks very much.

    Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.

      Good answer. We are the answer, I guess but why are we the answer? What is the purpose of us being the answer? Thanks!
