Ignore this if you're not interested in totally biased egocentric crap!
Ok, my general Idea of 'making the best of it' :
The one thing I'd like to know is how the brain works. I've read many books speculating on the amount of synapses per second a brain can calculate, what the brain does and how the pulses are sent.
Because I've admitted to myself that I do not know why I exist, I've decided to make the best of it. Since the brain sends out pulses, some of which make my feel 'happy', which is another undefined word and another reason I loathe our current form of communication.
Many of our views and ideas are formed because of prior experiences; Indoctrinated beliefs, thins you learned at school, taught by your parents, read in books, heard from others.
Back to being 'happy'. I like being 'happy', again, I don't know how to define happy, or even 'like', because they're subjective terms. I just know I 'like' being 'happy'. It's a positive feeling. Positive feelings...stimulate me. So 'making the best of it' is like 'acquiring as much positive feelings' as I can.
It's not entirely egocentric, because sometimes someone else or a positive feeling of someone else gives me a positive feeling. This is called social interaction, and is just another way to get a 'positive feeling.' I still haven't been able to figure out why I crave for 'positive feelings' , or why others seem to do the same, but it must be part of how the brain works. Money seems to help getting 'positive feelings' in many ways I cannot even begin to explain. (I think I'll write a book sometime.) That's why acquiring money gives a 'positive feeling', because it is a means to get more of them.
OH, one more thing..It's just been downvoted ; I know it's off-topic. It doesn't belong here, but the chatterbox character limit made me do it, really!
