You offer an interesting viewpoint from a philosophical or reasonable perspective. I believe others consider this (what's the point in living) from other viewpoints, some being emotional. I suppose other ways to phrase this can be
- What is the point/purpose of life?
- What is my purpose in life?
- What's the point in me being here? or
- Why am I here?
I don't believe it helps that we're brought into this world typically without being directed how to come to life or how to find purpose. It can be kind of like we're plodding along trying to work it all out for ourselves, which can get depressing at times, especially when we're not getting constructive answers.
Being analytical myself and having a natural love of wondering, I have been led to wonder whether one of the possibilities for our existence is simply to discover our potential. An example of this can be found in the fascinating study of epigenetics which embraces the idea that we hold the potential to alter our own DNA, something once believed impossible. A couple of the questions in this field amongst many are
- Do we hold the potential to consciously lengthen our telomeres through our behaviours (mental and physical), extending our life?
- Do we hold the potential to naturally switch off cancer cells?
So, you could say there are philosophers or theorists within the world of epigenetics. While there can be certain philosophers who think one way, we can have philosophers who wonder in other ways. At the end of the day, it's like we're a puzzle seeking to be solved (with many evolving theories on how to go about it).
Being interested in philosophy, I imagine you to be someone who wonders a bit. A bit far fetched perhaps but still possible: Wondering whether you are someone whose purpose it is to see what it takes to extend telomeres could leave you believing there's more to life than what you once imagined. Imagine a reality where you become the breakthrough. You finally come to understand your purpose.
We all hold massive potential in a variety of interesting ways. Throughout history, some have discovered their potential in great positive ways and some in sinister ways. Much depends on the nature of a person, the guidance they receive and the path they take.
