To paraphrase Professor Brian Cox ( aka Heart Candy) answering a question, during a chance watched end few minutes of Q and A, the purpose of life is to “be good”.
I understand where he is coming from, and many such other good people. I also agree. But could we also consider the possibility that the purpose of being good is Life? What does it matter why we are here? Here we are, and to stay, at least for a while longer, and if we were not, would being good mean anything?
