Does humanity have a purpose?
As a species, does humanity have any sort of unified purpose? Is there something that we're working towards?
Is it merely survival? Procreation? Do we have goals beyond our genetic imperatives? If not, why not?
And should humanity have an overarching goal, something to aim for to tell us that we are progressing as a species? Something to set our sights on to tell us when we're diverging from our intended aims.
Can humanity ever agree on any one notion? And absent an explicit purpose, a mission statement to unify humanity... where will the trajectory of our natural behaviour take us?
