    even Matter
In summary, the conversation highlights the insignificance of human life in the grand scheme of the universe. The speaker believes that no matter what we achieve or how our lives end, it will ultimately be erased during the heat death of the universe. The conversation ends with the question of whether it even matters to have a point or not, as ultimately our responses will not affect anything.

in the grand scheme of things, our life is an imperceptible blip on the universe's timeline. we are insignificant, and we don't really matter. no matter how successful we are in life, or how our lives end, all our accomplishments will be erased during the heat death of the universe, along with all of the other tiny flecks of matter and energy that exist on our little slice of the universe.

I don't have a point. But even if I do, why should I reply if in the end my response will not affect anything? Why does it matter if tell you whether I have a point or not?

It matters for whether or not the thread has value to PF.

Thread closed, thus disproving the thesis.
