What is the point to life?

What’s that point to anything? Why do we live and go to school and get jobs just to die? Is there a point to any of it? Or are we just doing it without knowing why we even exist.

    That’s what make life so great... having no point to it.

    You can look at the circumstances and set an objective. By trying your best to fullfil your objective, you will have an aim and you will have  a point in life.

    Life is realizing your presence in some form on this earth. Life is to live. Wherever you go and whatever you read, at last you will come to a mere conclusion that life is to live, just to live. First of all you must know what human beings are. Human beings are just robots made of flesh and bones and toys of the spirits for their games. The soft-wares for these robots are spirits or invisible elements. These robots are programmed by different people by oral talks, writings and actions too. During this process the spirits possess a human being according to the programs. Further these robots can program themselves when they wish.

    A human being during his/her lifetime is living with many spirits which have joined one by one since birth. They are knowledge, skills, feelings, emotions, interests and everything. Even thoughts are not these robots' own. One after another they think and these robots either choose or reject the ideas which they transmit to their minds through brains in the form of thoughts. Brain is a media to connect the spirits to your mind. Your mind is just a computer's mind. After the destruction of a computer completely you will not get it's mind. The same is the case with the human beings. A soul is nothing but an energy needed for the functionality of a body. It is not a spirit or anything else. A body's functionality is based on the auto mechanism. A human being doesn't have a spiritual body. Memories are different spirits. Spirits determine the destiny of a human being from his/her daily activities, talks and thoughts too. On death these spirits leave the body and go to different places. No one lives in any form after death.

    Why is a question that asks for the cause or effect of something. So when you know this you realize that purpose is what one live to do, or lives for. Answering why with a cause or effect.

    It's called living in human society. 

    You need money for your hobbies, living situation, family/friends, anything. You yourself make your life have a purpose through your own personal preferences and materialistic values as per your personality. It sounds soulless if I put it as briskly as that, but basically every human or member of a species has their own functioning or wiring through their DNA. Certain cravings, talents, gifts, etc, it's like a genetic spreadsheet of who you are. 

    A lot of people usually need a higher power to give them some sort of spiritual justification or validation, though you of course can be self-sufficient. It all trickles down to respecting nature, and praying/wishing for things like rain, harvest, good wealth, etc. Needs are universal through time, and you can see the underlying patterns by researching holidays.

    Does the universe itself have a point? Nobody knows and it's beyond being able to know beyond a doubt whether it does or doesn't. So live your live , don't worry about it, and find your own reasons for living. Some mighty good ones are to enjoy yourself, be creative and constructive and curious, and make your little corner of the world a happier place than you found it. That would be meaningful to a lot of other people, and it's PEOPLE  who determine what's meaningful to them.

    The meaning of life is a religious question, because the only way life can have a meaning is if God created us for some specific purpose. Otherwise our existence would just be a meaningless accident.

    The ultimate purpose of existence is eternal happiness with God in heaven. Everything in this life is a preparation for that - a chance to grow in love, virtue and holiness and to willingly choose good over evil.
