Long ago I decided that I was never going to have an answer to the big old why question, so I decided to stop trying to answer it. Read Sophie's World.
I have, however, decided that it is a pretty good idea to live your life with the intention of coming up with as many good stories to tell your grandchildren as possible.

Ooh, philosophical and stuff. Yeah, I've never found/figured out a convincing answer to the big old 'Why?'. It *would* be good if we had better cognitive abilities.

I guess all we're left with is to keep doing the things that make us happy. Which is what you're doing, so good. :)

Oh, and I think everyone goes through phases of thinking on stuff like this. So, sadly, you're still sane. :)

Thank you for your comforting words. :-)

if you think about the bigger picture of our universe it is impossible by our limited knowledge to even make sense of the fact that we/anything exists in the first place. you cant get something from nothing and even if there was nothing before us nothingness surely has to be something? i dont even want to think about it anymore so im just gonna keep going with the theory that we're not really here at all!

I like that. We're not really here. Hehe. Trouble is, now that exams are over, I've no energy for all this thinking, I just need a couple of days to chill out. Oh... and you best <i>really</i> be there next weekend. :P
