Need For Purpose

Question: Do people need something for which to live?

Answer: It depends. But in general Human beings are “purposeful creatures”, unless we want to remain on a very simple, “animate/humanoid” level of existence we need to find an overall goal, purpose for our lives.

And in order to be “truly Human”, to rise above instinctively chasing and fulfilling random “animate” (food, sex, family) and “social” (wealth,power/fame, knowledge) desires, to go beyond a baseline day to day survival, we have to search for a higher, all-encompassing meaning, purpose for our Human existence.
