The Creation and the Meaning of Life

After my recent brush with philosophy (see Life: Why The Journey Continues) I have begun to wonder what life is all about and why we are here? 

The only solution that I can come up with (and I have spent many seconds pondering this as I sip  my coffee and dunk my shortbreads) is that it must have come about in the following fashion.  

(Names and places in the following text have been changed to protect the innocent)

The right molecules, particles and all the other necessary paraphernalia got all mixed up in just the right way to  concoct a 'soup' which, left uneaten (as there was no one to eat it), went a just a tinsy-winsy lil' bit mouldy thus providing the right conditions to spawn a single cell organism.  

His name was Louie and he quickly became bored, all alone in that 'soup' as he was.  So, in order to have some company Louie forced himself to split down the middle and give himself a companion.
Of course Louie was still bored, even with company;  

There was no T.V. back in those days.

After a couple of million years, although Louie was long gone, his descendants had spawned many other "little Louie's" which had begun to evolve into lumps of cells which wandered the primordial soup praying on lonely female lumps, ravaging them and ultimately making more smaller lumps.

Then, one fine day, one or two lumps found themselves left high and dry after the 'soup' levels fell. They wiggled and waggled until they got back into their natural habitat (the 'soup') but thought "Hang on! That was pretty cool. Let's do it again".
So out they popped again and again and again until there came a time when some of the lumps decided not to go home ever again.  In such a way life began on the solid ground that we would one day name Earth ... but they were still bored and they still did not have a T.V.

The rest is, as they say, history.  The 'lumps' on planet Earth hip-hopped along their evolutionary way though many changes and dead-ends, leaving many forms of life in their wake, until it eventually reached the pinnacle of life as we have come to know it.  

The 'lumps' became US.

In a nutshell, that is how it all happened (excluding the 'big bang' theory of course, because as we all know, if there is no one to hear the 'bang', how do we know it really did go 'bang'?)   

But what is the purpose of our existence? 

Well isn't that obvious by now?
