What Am I?

What am I?

I am a human. The product of millions of years of evolution. I’m the descendant of a of a long line of anscestors. I am the latest organism of my genetic line created by the harsh environment. I am superior to my predecessors and yet inferior to my successors. I am the part of the generation on which the world’s hope rests. I am the force that strives towards the future.

What am I?

I am a student. An empty mind waiting to be filled with knowledge. I am someone easily influenced, hardly knowledgeable. I am soft clay, shaped by my environment. I am curious. I am eager. I am extraordinary.

What am I?

I am a biological machine, part of a greater society. I am a worker. I am what drives this world forward. I strive for success. I crave for achievement.

What am I?

I am a collection of atoms, forged in a distant star, carried by a comet. I am part of the ever growing universe. I am the soul which exists between both space and time. I am bound to nothing, and attached to everything. I am the truth of this universe.

What am I?

I am strong. I am pure. I am true. I am life itself. I am an unstoppable force and a caring gesture. I am full of energy yet so mellow. I see nothingness but I shape everything.

What am I?

I am a person who gazes at the stars and wonders: “What am I?”

´╗┐Answers To Common Existensial Questions, By A Teenager

Why do I exist? What is the point of life? What makes us human?

Yeah. The above questions have been nagging humanity for quite a while haven’t they? These bastardly question are the main reason for existensial crisis among teenagers. They gnaw at our minds, disabling our reasoning and our enthusiasm, they slowly take us down to the dark reaches where there lies no hope but only a void. A void in which many lose their minds and their thoughts.

BUT FEAR NOT! I SHALL ATTEMPT TO ANSWER THEM!

Why do I exist?

Well in my opinion this one of the most overrated questions. The answer is simple. You exist to live your life and await whatever the fuck that comes after death. It’s your choice of how you live your life and your whole existence depends on it. Just as long as you live your life to the fullest. It’s all about our choices. So to summarise, you exist so you can live your life to the fullest by making the right choices.

What is the point of life?

Actually, I have no fucking clue.

But I do have a good guess. I guess the point of life in biological terms is to reproduce. To pass on your genes. To make babies. To fuck. To make sure your lifeline continues.

 But there are exceptions, people who haven’t had children. I really can’t think of an accurate answer for this.

What makes us human?

It’s not our intelligence neither is it our our body shape or biology it’s our capacity to feel complex emotions and control them. Any old chimp can feel anger lash out in rage. But we humans, we can control such emotions. To think logically and controlling our emotion is what makes us humans. 

Empathy towards others makes us human. To sense a fellow human beings emotions and to m pat hose with them, combined with the control of our emotions is the only thing separating us from animals.

So, I hope this pulled someone out of their existential crisis.
