All right, I know this is one of the oldest questions in the book, but it was bound to show up here sooner or later, so I figured why not get it over with now? If you look at the title it should be pretty self explanatory, but in case you missed the title... In your opinion, what is the purpose of our existence? Not just our existence, but the existence of the world as a whole, and the solar system, and whatever else is out there? Why was anything created? If we're all eventually going to die out anyhow, what's our purpose here?
