Some think there’s a good chance the Universe doesn’t actually have purpose. That it just exists and will forever contract and expand, with no reason other than it can.
But to bring something into existence, something else must have existed to produce it. Big Bang aside, everything we see around us today has been created as a result of chemical and physical processes. Each processes got its purpose in the chain of events that led to it. In other words, existence without reason doesn’t make much sense, be it living or non-living. Author Joshua J. Marine has a famous quote on this:
“Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.”
Without challenges we’d just slouch all day, and apparently that’s not the plan. We have the power to shape our own future, and it’s both a blessing and a curse. But any way you look at it, it ensures that life is interesting and fulfilling.
