The purpose of humanity
This really is the “meaning of life” chapter – “Why are we here?” We explore a range of thoughts on this and extrapolate what has been discussed in the previous chapter. The hypothesis for testing is that all of life exists to thrive and celebrate itself – collectively. If the purpose of life is indeed to “thrive in community and celebrate the process”, then it would seem reasonable that this should be the mission for humanity. This also carries the responsibility for sustainability so that life can continue to fulfil its purpose long after we are gone.
