Eat, Sleep and Live

28Nov14

I have a problem.

I spend a lot  of time analyzing life. No, not the things that’s happening around me, but the basis of how human behaves.

Ego, pride, greed, lust, sex, etc. our primitive animal instincts are behind it all, it suddenly came clean that everything we do are sourced from the basis of survival instincts from deep in the ancestral genes.

Thus all these are not needed now due to civilisation, thus it has became “sins” in the principles of most religions.

Then I plunge into meditation, minimalism, asceticism, simple living, no poo attempts to become the simplest human life form.

Eliminating these seems to make life simpler, easier and happier. But it also suddenly turns life into a boring feed, shit and sleep cycle, without the excitement of grabbing and wanting more from one another.

It does feel more peaceful and calmer. It’s good.

But if you further analyse the current life after the initial elimination of “sins”and try finding meaning in it, you’ll come down to a final conclusion that the main purpose of life is only to stay alive and reproduce to keep the population going.

With more than 7 billion human population, as of year 2014, global food supply problem and people dying of poverty and hunger all over the world, reproduction is logically not an urgency.

Thus as an existing human, the only thing to do now is to stay alive. Eat, sleep and live.

As an intelligent animal like me and you, the final purpose seems like a bore.

But as dying is not an option, we only can live.

I remember the days in biology lab observing cultured bacteria. I wonder how the bacteria can makes wriggling looks like such a sport.
