Why Are We Here?

I had quite a wild shower thought last night. My everyday task/activity focus is often interrupted by a nagging question about the nature of our existence as humans.

This is not a new assumption. Many religions conditionally promise some version of heavenly escape after death. If you do the right things… More Let’s Play a Game: Life as an Escape Room
