 If our lives don't last, then how can our lives have lasting value?

This question addresses the issue of how anybody could have a deeply meaningful life if we all disappear and become like nothing.

  • not worth answering, but lasting value to whom? not to us, we no longer exist. That is the only puzzle there, anything else is a confusion of language. IMVHO

  • @return I'm convinced that we need something good in the afterlife. If we don't get some kind of Love that lasts... then this life becomes like a game where we all lose in the end. Why would anyone want to play a game like that? Aug 27, 2022 at 15:11

How anybody could have a deeply meaningful life if we all disappear and become like nothing.

Very few people (those who realized the truth) are aware of the eternity of the soul and value their (and others') lives. Human life is meaningful to them. That is why some of them are trying hard to teach us the value of our human life.

If your mind says that you came from nothingness and will eventually go to (become) nothingness you may believe so. But the following verses will not go amiss.
