Beyond all the big bang theory, and gods, and all that... like why you are who you are, you like what you like, you are where you are, you opt for some things and not for others... I used to do that, like watch the world thiking why I existed and all that... I got so convienced that it was strange that I got afraid a lot of times. Now its difficult so I havent had that feeling for a long time =/

I have put a lot of thought into why I am here over the past several years and like many people the first place I turned was my religion... standard response of course is that god will guide me to the right path... great. So I began to search my soul for a reason d'etre and I found a little but enough to give me hope. Not hope that one day my perpose would be explained to me or that I would see it in a dream. But that I by being the best man that I can will find truth in the fact that there is no purpose, no reason but the reason I create for myself!

Does any one know why any of us are here or even where here is? Self analysis is a huge part of the human psyche, all of which may be to complex to be ever understood. I understand why you felt fear when thinking about such things. Life can be very frightening. I recently wrote this article which may provide you with some food for thought http://www.helium.com/tm/780522 It is about defining who we are as people so it is fairly relevant to your question. May in every way this be a special day :)

Yes, I use to feel fear, but now I dont, but I liked to feel frightened about it, cause it also distracted me and those moments are when you dont care about silly stuff, and you care about what matters. But thinking about something a lot and never solving its not very good. Ill read your article, I found it interesting :) thanks for your answer ^^

I used to ask myself that question all the time, so much that is depressed me....I finally figured the the answer was so I could be the butt of end of God's big joke, not like a poor me thing but like a realistic thing; and there are others out there for God's big joke too, problem is the joke isn't funny anymore so I choose not to feed into that. I don't think about it so much anymore, figure I'll have the answer in the end anyway; gives me more empowerment. I have better things to do with my time.......
