    It is not nice. It is inhumane. Hitting others. I think if the world had kindness it would be a better place. And I believe in causing a chain reaction. Even if you really don't want to. You have to be the better person and be "good".

    Lol's it's ok. it's just hard to answer and post while you add another question. :) Ok, for that well... I think you are wasting your life. You could help to construct/ make the world a better place or at least help one more person. You commit suicide if you're heart is not strong enough to continue. Or if the situation calls for your life over another I think you have a big heart. But I wonder if there was anything that could have been done to prevent ones death. I depend on the situation and the type of person you are I think. :)

    Not everything has its reason. You have to think with an optimistic mindset. A mindset desirable to survive, to see the perspective of achieving something when your alive and well. Tkae it when you have an opurtunity. Think of all those who loose one more day to do something they loved to do..

    Optimistic mindset is what keeps you encouraged. You can always have the easy way out of things..But take the challenge..Take the challenge to endure through the situations. I don't think anyone who has attempted suicide has been so proud of doing it.

You want to surve because you want to take a challenge of another day with its own troubles.."Take life with what it throws at you" Life is a suspense..Have the courage to take a risk with another day that is lost from others.

    my answer to this riddle is that humans simply dont need to justify why one ought to do anything. humans act on instinct. justifying behavior to someone else is not necessary to act, and humans act on experience, impulse, instinct, etc

    this is a tentative solution. it also sort seems to take away the whole free will thing because we behave on instinct without justification. I dont think we use much free will, and im not sure if free will exists. but im on the fence with that

    the standard solution , from an atheist or skeptic point of view, is that humans have preferences. so people prefer to survive, but dont have a reason why they must. people prefer to be kind towards animals, but cant justify it ultimately.

    thanks. i got all this after talking to a philosopher and then i did some thinking about it. and now i feel like the floor has been pulled from under me so to speak... things i took for granted before are not so sure to me anymore. but im ok with philosophy inquiry, why i do what i do... i just tell people i behave on instinct and whats shaped from experience. id like your critique , not sure if this is an answer. But then you can ask why one ought to behave what is instinctual or from experience? now the question can be answered (i think). i never claim one ought to behave anyway, all i can say is that i behave instinctually, and i base this on what i know from science. I look at monkeys and i dont see much evidence that they can justify why the monkeys ought to survive or swing from tree to tree. im in a similiar boat, i cant justify most of my behavior. but i can ask why should we behave the way we do, and as far as we know monkeys cant .

    Hmm I seem to comprehend what your trying to connect here..However..there is some gap..I guess confidence would be a factor that allows us to do what we do? But then again, you wouldn't be able to answer the tremendous amounts of other qustions left to answer. Its like always wondering.. "What is the meaning of life?" its unanswerable..and has a variety of answers depending on each individual and their situation.
