First of all, what are existential questions? In literal meaning, the word ’existential’ means ”the nature of something or someone’s existence”. Hence, the ’existential question’, ”a deep and philosophical question concerning above”. (Source –

This post is a bit philosophical. But the opinion expressed by me is not to harm anyone’s intention. It’s just my opinion after gaining different kinds of life experiences until now. And you’re welcome! If you want to put your comments on any question. 

1. What is the meaning of life?

The meaning of life is to live purposefully. However, life is a word which can be defined in many ways.

Yes, I do. Be it scientifically proven or not. Because sometimes faith works better.

4. What’s our biggest mistake as a human?

No doubt, we are the best creature on planet earth. But too much commercialised now.

5. Is It Possible To Live A Normal Life And Not Ever Tell A Lie?

I don’t think so. Sometimes we need to tell a lie to save anyone. And that’s perfectly fine.

Less fertile lands, more pollution, more population, drastic changes in climate, are what I believe.

Clear oxygen and water. Also, man-made money for buying man-made things.


11. What would life be like without suffering? Is suffering a necessary part of human existence?

If I imagine a life where everyone is happy. A life where no one is suffering.Then how to define ’suffering’? Why people will help each other and even talk. No blessings to receive. Everyone is just happy. But then, no one can count happiness. The conclusion is ”suffering is necessary. Not much but to at least learn the struggle in nature.”

12. Is knowledge inherently valuable, or must it have a practical application to be considered of value?

Knowledge must have a practical application to be considered of value. What is the point of learning how to fly an aeroplane when you can’t fly it in reality or learning maths if you can’t calculate things?

I think, 60% we can.

Not air, relationships, life, safety from natural calamities, etc. So, completely, NO.
