What is the purpose of life? Does life have a purpose? Is there a target to be reached? A common goal that all life shares? The purpose of life is the common aim of life, that is, existence. The purpose of life is to survive. But could there be a higher meaning to existence? Perhaps we were created by pre-existing life for reasons unknown. Well then, what is the purpose of *that* life? Ultimately, it seems, the purpose of life can only be existence.
