What is the most prominent duty of every human being?

I think, the most prominent purpose of every human being is to find out the ULTIMATE TRUTH. Ultimate Truth is the truth of creation of universe. This fact is like something we can not imagine even however we have to find it out. Many theories are revealed on this issue such as Big Bang Theory. But question remains unanswered are ---
what was there before the Big Bang incident?
Is the sky really unlimited?
If yes, How unbelievably unlimited huge the cosmos is?

These are prominent because if we dont know the reasoning of our existence, we will not deserve to be prideful of our life. After this purpose, the next would be to become a generous and a Great Human being. This is undoubtedly very very difficult, but we can not ignore it. Rather than accepting we are weak to find it out, we should put efforts in it.

The first purpose is more difficult to achieve, so we should work on the second purpose, accomplish it and turn to the first purpose.

And always remember that the first purpose is more important because if we failed in it, we will die ignorant.

  • Aug 30 2011: I agree with you that our duty is to discover not only just the answers to the questions you listed but thousands more. I think more importantly than that our duty is to inspire future generations and our peers to have the same passion for discovery. I think that discovering the "Ultimate Truth" is not a task one would be able to accomplish alone, so the best thing to do would be to convince others to join in a crazy journey of discovery with you, and to continue it after you're gone. Spreading your ideas and your person as much as you can so that your legacy is one that will help the future is the duty that I will attempt to accomplish.
    • Sep 3 2011: Thank you very much for your comments..

      I noted in my initial comments, ---
      "The first purpose is more difficult to achieve, so we should work on the second purpose, accomplish it and turn to the first purpose."
      So the first purpose is to do something positive and welfare for the society. ....
      Although we died ignorant, we should died being a proud Human being.......
