Life does feel absurd, doesn't it? We'll never know what's the point of all of this but we're damn sure that pizzas are delicious. Enjoy life while it lasts!

Psh, who wants to live forever anyway? You will eventually run out of things to do.

That's crazy talk! I have enough interest in so many things, it could easily last for a thousand years. Besides, by the time another 100 years goes by, I'd have even more interests.

As to the question, "why were we born?" Who knows. None of us actually know. Sure, some people think they know whether they be religious or very adamantly hateful towards religion, (which I've never understood, why does it matter to you if someone else believes in God and an afterlife? It does not affect you in any way, shape, or form, and if it provides comfort to that person, then what do you care?), the fact remains, none of us actually know.

That's for sure, but make sure you don't litter your garbage around after finishing those delicious pizza (I'm just kidding, haha). Thanks for the nice comment.

How do you know that we will eventually run out of things to do? Maybe there are tons of things to do, just that human race did not discover it yet, but it doesn't mean it does not exist. Of course, I agree that currently it does seem like the case, where we have only so much to do, and nothing more. I think is more of the limit that we human place on ourselves. On top of that, I am well aware that there are certain elements in life we simply have no control over it, such as weather.

Indeed, we live in a world with full unknown. Even though human race has made a lot of discovery in the past, but we don't know how many out there that we didn't explore or waiting to be explore.

This is not a religious matter, but if that's what you believe, that's fine with me.

I thought of this topic when I was listening to a radio music, and the album has like "Born to die", and that's where it triggers me to think about this. I started thinking why bother the cycle of life when we all know that we have to die some day.
To feed the trees.

If we didn't die (body-wise at least), the Earth would be cluttered with people. The planet cannot handle that. We already have millions(?) who aren't able to be fed properly, with the whole dying approach. It would be a mess if we all didn't go away at some point.

Not necessarily. The universe is infinite, as far as we know. There is no end.

You know, That just doesn't work for me. My life has meaning. What I can't know or control, so what?
A dog's life has meaning, too.
