Why are we here in this plane of existance? Who created us and why, are we nothing in the universe or are we created for a reason? I know no one will have a definate answer but i just want more insight.

Nobody knows. Honestly nobody ever will. That's what religion is for, for what you believe in.

There is no reason. It is a pure accident. But as humans we have a problem.We are (probably) more intelligent than most other animals.
And we are (probably) the only animal that knows for an absolute certainty that we will eventually die.
So the human animal, for thousands of years, has tried to make sense of it all.The "dream" that there must be something after death. And so "beliefs" grow in the human Mind. Religion, in all its many facets, becomes entrenched in the human psyche.
And so religion becomes a "faith", it gives comfort to the living.
We "know" where we came from; the Sun. What we don't know is where we are going! We feel that there should be some form of existence after death. It gives us a slight freedom from the fear of death. If we believe that there is "something" after death, we are less afraid. Not totally, but less! All the religions have a basic theme; a preparation for death.
I once believed in it all. Then I "lost" my faith.
There are many times I wish I still had it!
So, if you believe in the Gods and the Goddesses. If you have faith in your own beliefs. Hang on to that faith! It is very precious! And it will save you from going insane.

"life is but a journey.. you will never know LIFE if you never know what JOURNEY is.."

-like the journey, you will never know what lies ahead of you.. even though you have a path that you're taking in, you will and can never say what is there that awaits you beyond that horizon.. but then again, in order for you to hold on and continue you must persevere..

blessed be..

What I know/think: Because we have chosen so. Quite frankly, there is nothing else to do!
God, the force, energy, life, Goddess, divinity, supreme beiong, coincidence, luck, accident...so on.....All the same.
So that we can create aNew in every moment....to evolve...learning/re-membering to reach inside your soul for all these "answers."
We are the universe, it others....earth..planets...stars.. that are real. Everything else isn't.

this is one of the more commonly asked questions of philosophy. i've searched for the answer to this question, among other things, for about three years now. the fact of the matter is we will not truly "know" until we die. this will throw people into despair, and naturally so. so to carry on people believe in an afterlife. personally i believe in reincarnation but the point is we can never truly know until we die. and i find if you can accept death and come to terms with the possibility that we might just die and thats the end then its really not that scary.

mainly to lift your spirits i will add this. while studying the occult and practicing magick i've found that death with no afterlife is simply impossible. i'd love to go into detail about it but it would take at least one of my journals to fully describe what i'm getting at.

the main point is. dont let yourself fall into despair because from what i've learned there is no end to a spirit.

I know this like the back of my hand....we r here to make us who we r. If we all just poofed up in heaven, what would define us? what would separate us from all the rest? we would esentialy be robots. there r too meanings of life...to create, and to be created:)

Well nobody knows who created us. This is what I think:

Everything in this universe serves a purpose. That is why we are born and thats why we die. When we're born our role as begun, but when we die our role as ended and our spiritual role takes place.

The problem is nobody knows their true role. Your role could be anything. It can even be the smallest of things. Why would someone be born if theres no purpose to them? This can even led to ghost in this world. I think ghost are people who have not completed their role and thats why their here until they have finished. The sun has a purpose and that is to support life for us. Each purpose is connected to someone elses purpose. Every life touchs other. If you weren't to meet your friend. That would affect what you would do later on in life too. You are who you are because that person was who he was. Your friend's life would of changed to if you never met him. Do you know what I mean?

Heres a another example:

Like I said above that the sun supports life for us. If the sun never did exist we couldn't live. Therefore, the sun's life would affect us and that is one way we're connected.

Seems most animals are more accepting of eventual death than most humans, but that's just me.

No one knows for sure where we came from as a species, no one can show you hard evidence proving the specific identity of anything that might or might not have had anything to do with our existence.
People have countless theories, sciences, spirituality, religion, doctrines, and belief systems that propose some form of idea as to where, who, or what we came from.

It is for you and you only to decide which current theory or not you believe in. No one can tell you for sure the answers to these questions as of current day.
