Why do we exist?

Ok, so this question may be a little heavy for a brain injury blog, but bear with me. So, why do we exist? To pretend that I have the answer to this question would be slightly presumptuous of me, I’ll admit. But that doesn’t mean it’s not still fun to ponder it!

The way I see it, we exist for one reason only. And that is to evolve. We’ve been created, or if you don’t believe in the whole “God” thing, we’ve come to exist for this reason. And when I say “we,” I’m referring to all life on the planet, not merely humans.

We’ve been created to evolve. And as we evolve, we learn more about the universe, and, ultimately, ourselves.

But, I can hear you asking, what practical application does knowing this serve me? Well, after reading this you may decide to learn something.

To further your understanding of the world around you. And that’s what I hope you’ll do.

If my theory is true, then sadly we’re wasting so much time on needless wars, fighting each other, and generally being assholes to the fellow humans on our planet.  But I can only do so much… being just one guy with a blog 🙂


Here’s me at the beach pondering the above questions.
