It seems the question people have always been asking themselves is “why are we here” or “what is the goal of live”. For me this question is fairly simple to answer: there is no goal for live…right?:)

But if it is actually so simple, why do we keep asking it to ourselves?

I think we need a goal to live, and to make live have a purpose.

Just imagine a world in which you are the absolute overlord. You cannot die, everything is known to you and everything happens the way you want it to happen. Actually, imagine you are god…

Now, how interesting will this be? How much fun are things if you have knowledge of every experience and nothing surprises you. How fun are things if they happen exactly as you want them to happen, without challenging you in the slightest? The answer is obviously: not fun at all. Eventually, live like this will be more of a torture then it would be a joy.

The reason this is not fun is because you will have no goal in live.

All humans need a goal. Early in live this is getting a good job, a family, money etc. But eventually, all what’s left is death. But the fun thing is: this gives us a goal as well, which means we have a reason to live and do not want to die.

Basically, trying to evade death is the last goal we have in live, and the goal which makes us want to be alive. If we achieve this goal, and do not replace it with another, we would wish we could die.

This is the paradox of live.
