insert title here.

Why do you think you were put on this earth? Do you know? Are you just sailing through time with no direction? What have you done with your life? Who have you helped through the years? Where would these people be if it weren't for you? Seriously, think about it. your family, your friends, that random person you didn't know but you helped them anyway, where would they all be if it weren't for you? This universe is made up of an uncountable amount of little things, that come together in one fluid motion to make our realm of living. Do you ever think about the millions of molecules that you're made from? Where they used to be? A strand of someone's hair, the lining of their intestines, decomposed and reabsorbed and made into plants that cows eat and then you take a bite of your cheeseburger, you have recycled the past. How could those subatomic particles possibly make up everything we see around us? How could photons show us these complexities?
Just one other reason why I believe in fate.
We're all here for a reason, the world would be a different place if any single one of us never existed. Life is wonderful. Dont let it pass you by.

Um... there was my random shit of the week. hope you all are having fun :)

Originally I was just going to say "whoa, that's some deep shit," but it happens to be a topic that I think about constantly.

Well, not exactly all of it; I don't think about the really tiny things (like a strand of someone's hair, to use one of your examples), but I do think about how the little things add up. Like if you ran a red light, how does that affect your drive from that point on; you hit all the other lights differently. Do you get there faster, or do you get there slower because of a car that happened to pull in front of you? *shrug*

Kickass. That's exactly it.

As somebody who studies genes, I think you'll appreciate my answer as to why we're here.

Reproduction. Life exists to reproduce.

On a higher level of thinking, I'd like to say that we're here to leave the place in a better shape than we found it. Sorta like camping.

Heh, did you know my major is genetics? Yeah, Reproduction is evolution's part of it, but as sentient beings, I think we're entitled to a bit more. Yeah, the camping analogy is very nice. and good for the karma.

Of course I know you major in genetics. I pay attention.

Eh, it's not that I dont pay attention, it's that I cant remember. :-\
