The community has no bribe that will tempt a wise man. You may raise money enough to tunnel a mountain, but you cannot raise money enough to hire a man who is minding his own business. An efficient and valuable man does what he can, whether the community pay him for it or not. The inefficient offer their inefficiency to the highest bidder, and are forever expecting to be put into office. One would suppose that they were rarely disappointed.

The default purpose of life was reproduction. But as we grew evolutionary older, we became able to take a look over that fence. So there is no default point of life for us. We are free to choose our own point. Animal life is controlled by instincts and emotions, we, humans have developed entirely new, superior system for that purpose — logic. Wouldn't it be strange to let emotions, ancient biochemical processes in our body define our actions instead of controlling them on our own? It is normal to be afraid, but fear is just a simple mechanism designed by evolution to make us avoid danger and keep us safe. It was not meant to control our global decisions, we have far more advanced tools for that — like reason and foresight. We're often afraid to live in a world without any supernatural powers that would take care of us. But doesn't nature itself take care of us by adapting us to live on this planet? We are the children of this Universe, the result of nuclear, chemical, genetic and memetic evolution. And unlike the most species on Earth, we are able to process complex ideas and abstractions, to collect and store knowledge. We have the power to think, to learn, to analyze, to correct our mistakes. We have the advanced language to communicate. We have imagination to see how to make the world better beyond any contingencies. The entropy of an isolated system never decreases. It is deeply logical to create and protect — time would destroy and lyse anything without our help. Remember that every living being, every grain of sand and every elementary particle are your family. Take care of your beloved ones, this planet and yourself. Help instead of criticizing. Don't be a slave to your preconceptions about freedom. Everything is measured in comparison. Something is valuable only in relation to something unavailing. You may have a lot of things, but when you'd be afraid of loosing something really precious to you, those things would seem quite useless. Don't wait for the critical moment, realize what is the most important to you and act basing on that recognition. If you want to gain something, you have to invest something equal. It is the law of nature. This life is the only thing we have. Don't count on any kind of bonuses you are promised to get somewhere and somewhen. You are here and now. Know your past, plan for your future, but don't forget that the only moment you are really living — is right now. You are on your own right to live, to look, to communicate, to learn, to change, to make mistakes. And I personally think that the meaning of life, of existence in this Universe, is to be free, but connected, to take all the pleasures and share them with those you love. I admire those persons who had lived their lives before me in this great timeline and had left their thoughts, ideas and experience. Those people do not exist in the way we do, but as we are still able to access their knowledge, to know and love them, they continue to exist in some different way available only for our species — as an imprint in the informational field of humanity. I hope to be able to live in accordance to my views, to follow the truth and to leave our small world to our children at least a little bit safer and more perfect. This is the purpose I chose.
