I don't know if we should want to exist or not but the fact remains
that we do. As for the purpose of life, I'll tell you exactly what that
is just as soon as you tell me what the purpose of purpose is.
In the meantime I'll quote Gertrude Stein:
"There ain't no answer. There ain't going to be any answer.
There never has been an answer. That's the answer."
