Faust06 Posted February 11, 2008 Share Posted February 11, 2008 I'd like an "objectivist" take is on what really matters to us. I'm guessing an answer not far off from nihlism and hedonism, which is fine by me.I'm not talking about some inherent purpose.. we have the freedom to decide what should be done, what matters most to us, etc. Try as I might though, I can't think of anything aside from fullfilling some basic desires (including work/productivity, knowledge).I myself can't imagine the human race being around merely to sustain itself and live peacefully. There would be no point in evolving, no point in moving forward... that is what we want, isn't it? What does it mean to move forward? What are we trying to achieve, collectively? Is the product of our work merely for convenience, for sustainment of life? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
