Humans tend to think that there must be a purpose to actions, but that is because we have brains which have evolved to find out why things are. It wasn't until the latter part of my life that I had done enough wide reading to realise that that is one question to which the answer is there is no objective reason. Any reason we may think of is made up by us! As a result, of course, humans have discovered the 'why' of millions of other things!! Once one can accept that things happened because of a natural, organic and accidental process, the fact that we are born, live a number of years, then die, and that our sun and galaxy does the same, then the tendency to spend time on thinking of afterlife etc is more interestingly, usefully and relaxingly spent actually on the living part. Well, that's my philosophy anyway, and over the years I have not seen or heard of anything more reliable.Quote
Thanks for the reply Susan. Sounds like you are siding with the "random" explanation. But to say it has no destination, just don't know. It seems headed somewhere, but perhaps without a pre-determined course?
