the secret of life....survival.

and understanding that "life feeds on life"...life is predatory...all life, and that is the reason for what we call "death".

Wildbill,

While that is a pragmatic explanation and true...it is still not a consideration of living life well....and being happy.

Mere survival can be equated with minimum brain function, a feeding tube, and a coma. Not necessarily the most competent platform from which to view the whole expanse of life.

In an article I had to read, the Cybernetics of Life by Holmes Rolston, for my Religion, Science & Philosophy I class, Rolston asserts that "[t]he secret of life is that it is a passion play" and that we are give "the power to suffer through to something higher."

Just a point to ponder...

Can't recall, but like most women she doesn't listen when I do... I just have to wait.

lol....believe me, pretty much every day that I survive I am happy. Even if I have little else, I have gratitude for the life I have been given.
