Why do living beings stride to keep living? many people would deduce that it is because it is neccesary for life; So i now ask, why is life existent? what motives to live did life have when it just began to live, and where were they derived from? 'the will to live is a function of life itself' defines the most integral property of life, but why is the will to live existent? as you may see, im confused about this subject so will someone here please enlighten me?
