fyi, i am not depressed,

but reality is, one day we will die, (we skip the assumption of matrix world idea temporarily here, because that is another issue)

there are all kinds of people on earth, which lead all kinds of different life, lifestyle right now at this moment while you are reading this paragraph.

some in good situation, some in bad situation, some enjoy happiness, some under big stress, some dealing with sickness and near their own death and etc bad moments.

do we need reason to exists?
do we need a to-do list?

why we spend most of our time to possess when the reality shows us everything is so temporarily, we come naked and we will leave naked.

selfish is our guidance, we actually care a lot about our-self.

we want to feel good all the time..

most stuck into 9 to 5, midnight job, overtime, etc...is there ever a better lifestyle for people on earth?

we have lots of crisis, food, water, weather, population, religion, extremism, education, and etc..

just rant...

Being completely un-selfish is not great - you need to enjoy this planet once in a while.
Good balanced existence is needed.

Maybe it should be a question of what can you do rather than what you want to do.

Want to do: Travel the stars, explore what's out there in a universe that is so much bigger than little old earth.

Can do: Go to work and earn enough money for food and living, maybe some little treats like a vacation.

Although you can not take your possessions with you when the time comes, they can be passed onto family etc.

Well, you can travel the stars and explore the universe with Sci-Fi.
It will not be the 'real' universe, but close enough.

For me it would need to be real not imaginary.

Sci-Fi would be like suggesting to read a book or watch TV about other people enjoying the planet, instead of doing it yourself.

Carl Sagan wrote:

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate. Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.

-- Carl Sagan, Pale Blue Dot, 1994

well, one might want to solve concepts like cellbody swap of neurons or create humans or other intelligance on machines. If the second applies, then human should not reproduce and get their heads hibernated close to death. After that we have lives able to live forever, and they might get sould as they are born. Maybe there is some soul transmission after death to a new being sometimes (maybe) and then it can get "connected" to the mind of something immortal. yeah, thats quite interesting to think about. I would prefer to look at the first idea first (since humans have this kind of knowledge of death as an impact on their psychology and thinking, and it has bad impact in quite some cases).
