A long time ago I've come to believe that there is no inherent purpose for existence, that is, we can't find any single "unifying" goal of living. So - I thought - we all have to find a purpose for ourselves, be it the accumulation of shiny new cars or achieving enlightement or whatever.
But lately I've been starting to think about this more in depth and now it seems to me that this isn't satisfactory at all - after all, how could you defend any single position? Take for example the common goal of "becoming happy". Why would you think becoming happy is a valid purpose? Probably because being happy feels good. But how is feeling good better (or more desireable) than feeling bad? Of course I like to feel good - I just can't find any justification for seeking happiness, or for any other purpose, really.
I hope I'm not too unclear. This might seem to be some sort of pseudo-problem - and it might as well be one. But I'm seriously concerned about this - it feels like the ground is disappearing from under my feet, so to say.
