The Big Questions of Life
Because life is too short for small talk.
Life confronts each of us with "Big Questions."
We can't not deal with them.
Even trying to avoid them is a way of "dealing with" them. (A pretty popular one, actually.)
But the trick, it seems, is dealing with them well, and not poorly.
If you answer them poorly, you might wind up more miserable and confused than otherwise.
If you answer
All to say, our answers to these are important.
They're like the foundation of a building.
If you get the foundation wrong, the rest of the building is going to have serious problems, no matter how fancy it is.
But if you get the foundations right, you're setting the stage for the building to last.
The "building" in this illustration is your life philosophy. Or, really, your life.
So, if you wrestle with "The Big Questions" of life, you're in the right place.
Wrestling with The Big Ones is no small task. It can be pretty nerve-wracking.
It can be the stuff an existential crisis is made of, for example, which is what happens when a worldview collapses.
But there aren't many places that help guide you through all this without just trying to shove some answer down your throat.
Here, we try to show our math. It's "open-source." So we revise it as we learn.
So, if the idea of not really knowing what it's all about, who you are, why you're here, where you came from, where you're going, what exactly you should do during the brief time you're doesn't quite seem right - well, it doesn't seem right to us, either.
So to try to help, your intrepid, inquisitive and super-handy LiveReal Agents have been gathering evidence and assembling maps, compasses, and other gear to help save you some time and possibly avoid potholes and quicksand along the way.
We hope you find it helpful.
What is "Human Potential" for Good?
What is "Human Potential" for Bad?
What is "The Meaning of Life"?
What is "Spiritual Awakening"?
What "Games of Life" are Worth Playing?
One of the interesting things you'll probably find is how all these questions are connected.
They all, eventually, intersect and overlap. Your definition of happiness, for example, ties directly to your answer to "meaning" in life. This affects your definition of success in life, which probably has some response to the problem of suffering, and so on.
In this way, jumping in to this can be like a strand on a spider web. When you touch one, it affects all the others. Hopefully, this can all work in your favor.
So, if you're interested in this kind of thing, consider joining up. Because comparing notes with other folks who are doing the same things can sometimes save you a lot of trouble.
In the meantime, we'll keep exploring.
