The meaning and purpose of life is to perpetuate life. No matter who said it, "Go forth and multiply" is the whole ball of wax. Life is to reproduce and perpetuate 'our' form. And, who knows, maybe those who choose not to have children may just be following their inner voice that is saying 'we don't need any more of you to perpetuate the species', or 'the species would be better off without your input'. There is no other purpose. If dinosaurs lived with a purpose was it that they failed or were they just here to give scientists one more thing to study and argue about? So, go out and screw. It is what you were made for.

That doesn't esplain the meaning of life at all. That might suggest what our life is supposed to accomplish, but it does not determin what the purpose of life is. Why does the wold need us to create off spring? Why should it matter for more people to be alive? The meaning of life is more than just to create more life to be questioned.

but i do agree with ur ideas on love, but i think theyre is something greater than that, i think the purpose of life is polymorphus but is derived from a desire, the need of inner fufillment, often associated of defined as everlasting happiness

now some claim the purpose of life is to satisfy a divine order or god, others to satisfy themselves, others to satsify others, and from this satisfaction they derive happiness, when one finds something that makes them continouslly happy they consider that as their purpose, now this can conclude love,

but why do this we ask, the question, there is an answer but its entirely psychological and may be to the taste to philosphers but if uve read freud theories we are all born as blobs, all we know is need and that those needs are satisfied, we are with one with our mother, but then in order to enter society we must leave the mother and become seperated, when this seperation occurs we feel absence or lack, we then come in contact with a mirror and see others and consider them as whole and then consider ourselves as whole, we see ourself and then consider ourselves as a whole despite our inner lack, we create an ideal ego to compensate for the sense of loss to our mother, but the need is gone we demand that which cannot be satisfied by objects, we demand a completion of our inner fragmented body, a recongiotion of inner self thourgh another, through love, in conclusion then our purporse may be our quest to fill the void to return the ideal ego to the inner system

but this is based on psychology not philosophy

Agreed

Sometimes we try to firgure out things such as the meaning of life instead of trying to livie it as it comes. What does it matter if we know what life is when we waste it on something else that we don't need. We should just focus on being happy in the boundaries of doing what is right.
