What is the meaning of human existence?



What is the meaning of human existence?

One of the questions that’s been with me since becoming aware of my own existence, beyond “Why do I exist?” is “What is the meaning of existence?”

That’s a question not easily answered.

Is the default mode of the human psyche suffering?

These questions are philosophical in nature; trying to formulate answers risks ideological exposition.

Looking down on these questions from a purely technical, non-philosophical perch, a few things can be discerned as fact without questioning their merits.

Human beings exist. Everyone alive got here as the result of biological activity. Human beings are social creatures of limitless potential, both for good and evil.

Though individual human beings can be and often are incredibly resourceful, we still need each other if we are to have any chance whatsoever of rendering that potential.

Existence as a backwoods hermits is possible, but such conditions are not the desired default or recommended position for most.

Human beings need each other in myriads of ways for myriads of reasons.

Human babies need their parents to expend many years’ worth of attention and effort simply to bring those new humans into existence.

Human beings need each other in order to foster and maintain sanity. Without the company of others to bounce off of, individual humans tend to quickly wander off into the murky realms of mental instability.

Is mere existence on a pillow with all physical needs met tenable or desirable? Would the heavenly idea of laying on a cloud playing a harp be an ideal to strive for? Would endless existence without aim and action even be pleasant, or would it be a possible form of meaningless hell?

It is self-evident that on a base level human beings need both aim and action in order for existence to have meaning. Aim without action is meaningless, as is action without proper aim also devoid of meaning. An existence devoid of meaning could indeed be considered a form of suffering.

In order to avoid suffering, humans need aim and action. Aim and action both require the presence of other humans to share in aim and action games. Solitary aim and action games are empty experiences. The sharing of experience in aim and action games offers the possibility of rendering shared meaning.

I describe the TruckerTom Artificial Intelligence Test. If an intelligent machine can be constructed that can collapse the wave function of electrons by measuring them in the Double Slit Experiment, the machine is conscious in the same way that human beings are. If the machine cannot collapse the wave function with its artificial awareness, then it is NOT conscious and is nothing more than a sophisticated adding machine.

1769 Atheists Despise Natural Latent Human Ethics… www.truckertompodcast.com www.truckerphoto.com

Rabid atheists are a group of people who despise God’s creative intent of what human beings are and/or should be. There is a natural, latent, living set of ethics that we as human beings should live by, but as human beings we are given a choice. We don’t have to be what God created us to be. A large group of atheists despise these latent ethics and are driven to undermine the very idea of a Creator, so as to invalidate any idea of right or wrong.
