    So many things on my mind...
    • Have we become less happy in this age of technology?
    • Is love simply physical desire or something more?
    • What is true friendship?
    • Why do we strive for perfection if it is not attainable?
    • Can life be meaningful without friends?
    • Does an ideal government exist?
    • Does free will exist, or is every action predetermined?
    • Are we a minuscule part of intelligent life in the universe?
    • Does belief make God exist?
    • Are we the biggest threat to humanity?
    • Do parallel universes exist?
    • Will racism cease to exist?
    • Will the world be a better place if caste and religion cease to exist?
    • Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world and less in the real world?
    • Will the world come to an end by human hands?
    • Is true beauty subjective or objective?
    • If all the currencies in the world did not have monetary value, would our world be a much better place?
    • Why do we throw away food when we know people are dying of hunger?

    • Have we become less happy in this age of technology?

    Not less happy but certainly more dopamine resistant which might be the same thing
    • Is love simply physical desire or something more?

    It’s brain chemicals at first, then a choice
    • What is true friendship?

    When two people think of the other more than they think of themselves
    • Why do we strive for perfection if it is not attainable?

    We want what we cant have
    • Can life be meaningful without friends?

    Yes. Every life is meaningful in and of itself. Does it feel as meaningful? Depends on the quality of friendships you have known
    • Does an ideal government exist?

    No, government is only necessary in the first place because humans are flawed, but the only way to run a government is with said flawed humans
    • Does free will exist, or is every action predetermined?

    +1 to free will, no question
    • Are we a minuscule part of intelligent life in the universe?

    No. There is no other intelligent life
    • Does belief make God exist?

    No. Belief and God are separate, therefore they exist independently
    • Are we the biggest threat to humanity?

    Yes
    • Do parallel universes exist?

    No
    • Will racism cease to exist?

    Not for a long long time
    • Will the world be a better place if caste and religion cease to exist?

    Yes and yes to religion but not faith
    • Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world and less in the real world?

    No, if we did we wouldn’t make ourselves out to be better than we really are
    • Will the world come to an end by human hands?

    No, we’re naive to think we have that much power
    • Is true beauty subjective or objective?

    Subjective
    • If all the currencies in the world did not have monetary value, would our world be a much better place?

    Would make no difference, value would be assessed in other ways
    • Why do we throw away food when we know people are dying of hunger?

    Because when you have access to food and don’t ever experience true hunger, it’s impossible to understand the true scope of the problem much less imagine being part of the solution

    You're good. That would've took me at least a week.

    Someone gave me loaf of cinnamon chip zucchini bread. I woke up at 2:30 this morning wondering how it would taste warmed up with butter.

    I need proof for these answers

    Kuddo's for answering them though, much appreciated
    Even though a lot of the answers are personal answers, and not something you can actually proof (but i guess that was the idea of the question all along)

    My turn,

    Have we become less happy in this age of technology?
    No, just more distracted

    Is love simply physical desire or something more?
    Love can absolutely exist w/o desire. You must not have kids

    What is true friendship?
    Knowing that person always has your back and no matter how long its been since you talked, its always easy when you finally do again

    Why do we strive for perfection if it is not attainable?
    Not all of us do. But those that strive for it are looking for purpose, nothing wrong with that.

    Can life be meaningful without friends?
    Mine is

    Does an ideal government exist?
    Ideal? Absolutely. Perfect? No. (see previous perfection answer)

    Does free will exist, or is every action predetermined?
    I don't think there is enough room here to really discuss the philosophies involved

    Are we a minuscule part of intelligent life in the universe?
    Yes.

    Does belief make God exist?
    Yes

    Are we the biggest threat to humanity?
    Yes, but potentially also the greatest salvation.

    Do parallel universes exist?
    Yes.

    Will racism cease to exist?
    We can only hope, but I'm doubtful.

    Will the world be a better place if caste and religion cease to exist?
    Well those are two very different things, but yes to both. As long as spiritually remains.

    Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world and less in the real world?
    Only if we are doing it right.

    Will the world come to an end by human hands?
    No, but that doesn't mean we won't *kitten* it up enough to make it uninhabitable.

    Is true beauty subjective or objective?
    Subjective, duh.

    If all the currencies in the world did not have monetary value, would our world be a much better place?
    I started to answer this and it got too long so short answer is, no.

    Why do we throw away food when we know people are dying of hunger?
    Because world hunger is not affected by waste as much as distribution.

    Definitely other intelligent life. To not believe that is to not understand the vastness of the multiverse
