What's the secret of life?

Postby desperate788 » Wed Sep 19, 2018 4:52 pm

It's very interesting will anyone solve what we are living for just a minutes in galaxy's time unit light years. I think no one will solve.in our shorts lives the main thing is easing pleausure tensions like feeding and sexuality..should we call this life? Is it that? Where are there planets they have no relation with our easing process. Douglas Adams in his book processed the subject ironically and concluded that meaning of life is just a number. Anyways sometimes specially when I'm not in need of something this question comes to my mind have no clue about the answer..

There is no meaning when you put it that way. Epicurus said the meaning is seeking pleasure, in Epicureanism. Stoicism says the meaning is virtue. Both are trying to achieve being Sages, which both are impossible according to their words. Pleasure can lead to good things, it consumes alot of energy though. Virtue (and constructive pain) can lead to good/skilled things, its consumption of energy is minimal. Both are needed.

IMO the physical aspect is pleasure, which is being a strong-man and using mere power not technique as in martial arts. You can then be Scivilian and bodybuilder, or you can be a wrestler - And the spiritual aspect, uses technique not mere power, and you are a punching and kicking person then.

Aristoteles like Buddha talks of a middlepath.

So some philosophers in a planet of billions of trillions think life's meaning is pleausure and virtue..I can't understand that.

It's all our perceptions maybe there aren't any planets maybe we don't exist.

Numbers are too complicated us. We understand 2, we learn to understand 3 and 4. But 1000 is virtually impossible to understand and visualize the quanitity of.

You mean numbering things is an existential fallacy. We created numbers..human mind. We try to number of planets that we didn't create and don't understand.

Pleasure OR virtue. There is not much more than that. Nothing more than that.
