RE: Thoughts on existence (& happiness) Sorry I'm not sure if its o.k. to continue a thread, I just find this an interesting subject because it's such a basic question. What are peoples reasons for living from one day to another? Not only as individual humans but as a whole specie. I'm not even sure if that question justifies my thoughts. My thoughts on this are that we want to satisfy a need to be happy, at a intellectual level and at a primal one...an instinct to survive because humans fear (in a different tangent this i believe is where religion is born...:surprised ) ...and for humans to be happy in whatever it is they do with their own lives - everyone has their own trip in life .
