  3. It's true that experience also can lead one to the truth. Experience is a part of learning. How do eyes shift back and forth? I believe eyes can not. Head can but then you will look like a woodpacker.
  4. Everything actually. Learn learn and learn more about the universe, consciousness, history, physics until (if) something else to do becomes apperant. Learn and adapt the knowledge you learned. Grow and improve. Just be careful what you learn is true, be careful to reason from first principles like Elon Musk said.
  5. To explore, to learn, to discover, to invent, to build, to investigate, to grow, to advance, to understand, to discuss, to improve, to create... TO LIVE AND FEEL ALIVE...
  6. There is only one assumption in there and that is to say the question "What is the purpose of life?" is asking "What to do in life?" Because I see the question in this way. I should have said that in the first post. "What to do in life?" is a question about activity. Gathering knowledge is not an assumption, it is an answer to the question "What to do in life?" All other answers such as "Try to be happy." is aiming for something rather than doing it. Okay, fine you want to be happy but being happy is not an activity, it is a chemical reward comes from doing activities. And why "gathering knowledge" is the only "activity" that makes sense rather than "improve yourself" for example, because it is the only activity to improve too. Learning, captures everything one can do with his life. Because: If one makes a decision without enough knowledge, the premises of that decision might be false. The only way to decide in a perfect activity to do in life, is to gathering knowledge itself. Only with knowledge, one can decide what to do. Thus, until (if) something to do in life becomes apperant with new knowledge, one must contine to learn. Again, I should have said "the activity thing" in the first post. Let me edit that. But I am too lazy right now, instead I will put a note in there that says, "Read the first 8 comments before making any comment." People shouldn't be lazy and read the comments, shouldn't they?
  7. If the questions are fueled by curiosity, even though gathering knowledge only "might" answer the questions, there is not any other method to answer those questions, gathering knowledge is an obvious method and it seems there is no other method. If the questions are fueled by pain or suffering then it is about something painful like inevitability of death or losing loved ones. Then the question is not about the meaning or purpose of life, it is about "Is there a peace in life?" "How to be happy?" I am assuming the purpose of life is an activity. For example asking the purpose of life is asking "What to do?" Then, the answer is for the reasons I explained above, gathering knowledge. What I meant by saying, "There is no answer because there is not a question in the first place." is the problem can be divided into pieces within itself. That means there is not a question like "What is the meaning of life?" There are only questions like "How to be happy?" "What to do in this existence?" etc. That's why different people gives different answers to the question "What is the meaning of life?". What I am claiming is that the answer to the question "What to do in life?" is gathering knowledge. I should have said that in the first post, sorry about that.
  8. It is the way I see it, but I can not see from another perspective. Can you help me with that?
  9. Many people ask themselves the famous questions "What is the meaning of life?" "What is the point of life?" etc. This is a state of confusion. We are smart animals and this question is actually just another way of asking "Why?" and "How?" etc. The questions are just representations of human curiosity, thus the answer is obvious... It is to gather knowledge, it is to satisfy human curiosity. The answer is not plesure or happiness. There is no answer because there is no such a question in the first place. Congratulations, you are a human and you are smart. That means you are curious. Now, stop whining about meaning and focus on gaining understanding! Edit: Read the first 8 comments before making any comment, claim, argument etc.
  10. There are so many topics to research, so many debates, so many advancements in science and technology... I find it rather difficult to distinguish pseudoscientific concepts, crazy ideas, scientific concepts etc. For example, I have been interested in life extension recently and everyone is keep telling different stories, different opinions... I am no biologist, so how can I understand whatever life extension is pseudoscience or not, even though it sounds feasible from outside? Studying biology would be an obvious answer but there are many topics like this, I can not study everything you know! Another example is obviously... MBTI theory? Anyway, enough with examples. What do you think about this? How do you understand whatever a concept is pseudoscience or valid?
  11. Problems will always exists, if you manage to create an Utopia that there is no disease, then there will be death; if you manage to create an Utopia that there is no death and disease, there will be war; if you manage to create an Utopia that there is no war, then there will be natural disasters, if you manage to...... Perfection is impossible unless everything is already perfect and some people think without perfection, that thing will not be an Utopia, it will just be a more comfortable world.
  12. I do think since consciousness is subjective it can not be proven with the current understanding of humanity. But there might be some way in the future. I don't know much physics but I think consciousness is similar to 4 dimensions, or singularity or something like that.
  13. Assuming life is a spontanneous experience that makes one experience the existence and one can do activities in the existence, what should one do in order to succeed? Or to put it simply, assuming a life purpose exists, how to find that? Some random example (I'm trying to give examples that can represent what I mean, these examples are not true or correct and they are very short) premises and strategy forming: (Be aware that all examples assume there is a life purpose and all examples trying to find what that is.) A 1- Life is a spontanneous experience that must be lived to the fullest extent. (Increase life satisfaction) 2- In order to live the life to the fullest, one must satisfy all of his desires that causes him to feel the need to do so. 3- In order to satisfy the desires of all kind, one should gain competence to do so. 4- In order to gain competence, one must engage in self improvement and must understand self improvement only possible with self-acceptance. 5- In order to know oneself, one shall look within. So the purpose of life (spontanneous existence of consciousness) is looking within and gaining self knowledge. (This also fits right after 2nd premise.) B 1- Forming a completely accurate strategy is impossible because in order to do so one must know everything in the existence. 2- Since then, one must form statements (premises) with the probability, that is to form statements that are probably true with the known knowledge. 3- In order to increase probability one must gain knowledge about existence and everything within it and this should be one's life purpose. How do you create a life strategy? How do you optimize your plesure in the ''spontanneous experience of your consciousness''?
  14. Can you prove to someone else that you have consciousness and you are not something like an unconscious robot?
  15. Is science the best or only way to gather knowledge?
