Gosh, I can smell the Fi all the way from *here*...I used to think like that to some degree when I was a kid. I think my interest in astronomy bloomed out of a desire to know at least where I am if not the why.
Now I think more about what to do. I think we choose our purpose (to a large extent). And give meaning to the means. I have something 'meaningful' in mind for my life long career and focus on that.
I think this 'free will' is tempered by the fact that we are biological entities that come with some pre programming. I'm curious what I'm 'made for' in this regard and would like to 'fulfill my function'/self-actualize. In this way, I see my happiness & 'being me' (while striving towards being the best me possible) as my purpose.
These sorts of reflective questions are ones I used to think on quite a lot, especially in my adolescence (perhaps triggered by the amount of death around me at the time). Once I reached a satisfactory answer (which is personalized to me), I just carry out those principles as I go about my day. Finding a religion or framework for one's life is very helpful in getting ahold of one's self when feeling lost in the Universe.What is our truly purpose here?
How often INTJ reflects to themselves?
The universe is indifferent. Since we're already here, we can as well do something.I also think, though, that it would have been better for the rest of the species on the planet if humans had just never happened. The universe wouldn't have missed much.
I think I have never been able to be happy with past accomplishments. The past can be comforting at times, but then we always have to get back to reality and think about the present and the future. For me how I live matters more than what is my legacy. The best one can do is make the most of every moment.Regarding my own existence, I sometimes imagine myself being old, holding a picture of my current self and wondering if that would make me feel as if I have done something that matters.
Then I keep going on to the future to the point when the planet is completely dead with no more living beings and that makes me wonder if anything will ever matter at all, and that's when I have to stop because it's kind of depressing.
if only 10% of the planet would think like that u mentioned, perhaps happiness would be a permanent state of mind
Life, the Multiverse and Everything are any number of things, bit like an infinitely wide electromagnetic spectrum. Our eyes can only detect a narrow band of electromagnetic radiation, and, indirectly, our tools a little more. Such is the mind also. It can only detect and labour with a narrow band of the "spectrum of existence". That specific band tends to be determined by our past. Or, as the Buddha put it, this is because that is.now everything around us represent the opposite ,we probably do not live in the right time and place or maybe we're living in other dimension or maybe everything is perfectly placed in a perfect time by someone bigger than us ,I think the last idea it's the one that suits me best
