Apologies if this topic has been discussed elsewhere, but I am seriously interested in your perceptions, ideas on reason(s) for human existence. If one side-steps religious manure and has no faith in afterlife crap, what are we left with? We're here because we're here, and our sole purpose is survival. A brief trip on the merry-go-round. Assuming that (wo)man does not become extinct in the immediate future, what are homo sapiens evolving into? Any comments, ideas would be more than appreciated. Peace and goodwill. John C.
