    I'm saying...we are doing so because there aren't any other options.

    I tried doing it the other way around once... I died anyways.

    The premise of the question seems misleading. Just because we die does not mean we live for that. But if you mean why do we live when we die anyway I would say: we live for the experience of living... and why do we have this experience? We don't know for certain, perhaps for no reason at all. Why do we die? That's how it works in this world, it's nature baby!

    ask God.
    That is basic question #1 in any religion and science.
    Answer that and you solve one of the biggest questions that has bewildered humans since first Homo Sapien thought "I Am".

    ugh. it wasn't misleading at all. The way he phrased his question, it told us his tone.


    I really don't know. My answer was going to be 'that's a very good question.'

    it's not misleading at all. :| the fuck.

    You can still answer "For the experience" -- but, his question was nicely toned and worded. Get the point. I hate when people can't use a little assessment on top of words in a question and quickly grasp the obvious direction.

    I dont know, but according to zen master death ain't nothing but the other side of the coin. I think don't take everything here so seriously.. it keeps going and thats what deserves to be tuned in to.

    I know far too many who are dying to live so the option of living to die is a good one.

    Not to sound trite but life is what we make it. Each day brings an opportunity to either be positive or negative. To be fair a lot of days fall some where in the middle. :)

    Life is just a blip in between two eternities of nothingness,and it usually reads like a bad novel.

    Living to die sounds like a pretty meaningless existence.

  17. No, we are not living to die. But we know it happens at the end of living and is, in a way, a part of living.
    We are living to live though. And because we don't have much choice in the matter of life or death. :)

    Dying proves precisely how important humans are in the "scheme" of existance. Which appears to be-not much. Although we do seem to take ourselves as seriously important. We come. We go. In between is up to the individual. Mostly.

    my 2 cents

    Meaning in life can take different forms. You have a purpose in helping others. You believe in an esoteric purpose to life (e.g., escaping reincarnation). You just enjoy being here.

    If you have good health, good relationships, you have your basic material needs met, and you have something to do with your time, you'll almost certainly be happy. You still won't know the answers to life's mysteries, but it won't matter so much.

    Existential angst seems to only come on when you haven't found meaning. Life is still a mystery to those who have a strong sense of purpose in life, but the mystery is not so much of a problem.

    you might want to see an md, or check out the book "curing depression naturally with chinese medicine" by bob flaws.

    a meditation practice might be good.

    may you find the meaning for which you seek

    I'm not living to die. I just accept that death will come one day because everything that lives must one day die (except for those immortal jellyfishes). I live to live. Life is a gift.
