My greatest passion in life is to study the human experience. There are two parts of the human experience, the physical and the non-physical (spiritual I guess you could say).
The Physical Realm is the most obvious and easiest to understand. I believe that the human body has been designed into a tangible being for the purpose of collecting as much data as possible. We interpret information by touch, taste, hearing, seeing. From the moment we are born our brain (the hard drive of the computer) gathers information. Throughout life we are always learning more and more. Through the aging process the brain can withstand a great amount of information. Why do we need all of this information? That is something I don't know. But I believe that the human experience is a purpose that must be respected.
As a collective whole we are stuck in conscious stagnation. We are not forging into greater levels of consciousness as a whole. Society is "dumbed down" through the use of media control. Television could have been a great tool for creating more awareness and positivity. Instead it is used as a way to keep people dumb. We are only as smart as what is being presenting on television. The physical realm is all about what we see, taste, feel, smell. We gather information and then interpret it into something we can understand. The physical realm is a temporary process. Just think what life would be if we were all operating in a complete conscious operating system. The world would be much different. It is what we learn and store into our human consciousness that we take into the non-physical realm. Those that remain unconscious never wake up to the true reality of our existence.
The non-physical realm is based solely on faith and ones own belief system. For many folks the belief of life beyond the grave is non-existent. I, however, believe that our purpose on Earth is a temporary stopping ground. To learn as much information as possible is the purpose and to become a greater entity than we realize. There is something about the concept of love and positivity. These are beliefs that people posses that makes them bond to feelings of hope, security and everlasting togetherness. The more negative and cynical our consciousness becomes the uglier the world becomes. Follow the media and you will begin to see what is truly being projected into heads-- negativity, atheistic beliefs, hatred, greed, fear. These are beliefs that are poisoning the purity Earth. The non-physical realm is deeper than we will ever know. To understand the life beyond our physical existence one must strive to achieve total consciousness. Total consciousness is a never ending quest that can only be achieved by those that believe in the greater purpose of mankind.
The purpose of the human being is to learn as much as possible and to continue to progress into greater levels of consciousness preparing for the next stage universal life.
