The perennial but rhetorical question, "Why?"

The perennial but rhetorical question, "Why?"
Why am I here? Why are humans self-aware? Why do we have the urge to create beauty, art and solidity; and to "leave something behind" for posterity?
By asking that question we find a need to create a reason for our existence and so we create deities, philosophies and religions. Then the inevitable wars, hatred and distrust appear, wreaking a different type of creativity on the planet. That of death, disease and hunger. An unintended legacy of destruction is created.
Did there need to be a reason? Humans evolved and die. The end.

If you liked this and would like to encourage me to do this more often, please do donate something (but please do not feel under any obligation to do so!).
