How would you describe the purpose of life in one sentence?

What is the purpose of life? This is kind of a question where there is no exact answer, and it differers from one person to another. What is the purpose of life in your own understanding, from your own point of view? The answer might be a complicated and long, or concise and short. But how would you state it in one single sentence?

        Feb 27 2011: My mistake -- singularitarianism seems to be the belief in the singularity where something "beyond" human is created. However, this does not seem to be the creation of a new God (ie. one above all with powers of omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence).

          Mar 5 2011: I don't understood the debate behind the existence of a god which is "omnipotence, omniscience, omnipresence". If we define god as such, isn't god just another word for "everything"?
