Life. What is it exactly? What existed before you did? How should we live our lives now? And what happens after this life is over?
We humans think about life a lot. Sometimes we wonder what it was like before we arrived on the scene—historical novels and movies often romanticize and appeal to our curiosity about what the lives of others were like.
But mostly, we wonder how to cope with our own experience of life now. How do we deal with the challenges, the heartaches, the successes and failures, the ups, the downs?
Down deep, though, lie nagging questions.
