What are we doing here in earth life? is this all real isn't it a thing like dream ? is there a life after this life?

Ever since i was a child i somehow knew it is a mystery it has infinity mysteries in it self in what we called a life. most of experiences and discoveries
are for someone something that has this mysterious object we called Brain. All of our lives we tried to find something that we don't know is exists or even
sometimes we don't even know what we have what is hopeful to get in a living thing life is love, passion, anger, happiness and a lot more but all of them
are feelings that we do have in our self's already we just wait for situations to spark those feelings. lets see sadness or cry like someone that you love
pass away it will make you cry sad or in a deep sorrow or even you knew that this would happen but it isn't gonna change the situation's scene your feelings
and all. what if something good comes up and goes away will it make you happy for in a bit of time or will it make you sad? lets see you wanted a Ferrari and you
get it one day your happy your riding it touching it having felling of having it hours later you woke up it was a dream but you were happy while you were having felling of having it but you want it in a reality so you can have it for a longer time and be happy for a longer time but even if you get it your gonna lose it or let it go one day
so was that time while you were dreaming was not enough time of happiness for you?

For most of the time we i had a dreams last night how do i know cause i woke up from it it was for a short time and now i am here in reality for a longer time. So the life we are living now will not be here i mean we are not going to live forever so maybe when die we weak up some where where we have a longer period of time life so is it also a dream that we are living?

    Dec 22 2011: I really loved the 1999 movie called "The Matrix". It portrays much of what you are talking about.

    Is this all a dream? Is it real? Am I really typing right now? It's awesome!

      Dec 23 2011: Yes Thomas Anderson this name is from Matrix
      I am a video director i know we humans are more attracted and learn from visuals specially the once we are interested in movies my fav sci-fi movie is matrix that opens my mind towards knowing and understanding things that we usually don't
      like lets say speaking when we are born we see people speaking from them we learn how to speak say words there are a lot of things that we have not ever thought about and we do cause we do we don't know are there have you ever thought about why do we have 2 eyes two ears why our ears are shaped like this ?
      we see these 3d movies are made of tow cameras with a certain amount of gap in them with that you can measure a object depth that how far is it and our ears are in this form that we can fell how far sound is coming from. And with matrix i understand a lot of things like reality who can u say its real what we can taste fell hear see is real? and also Inception now inception story was already in mind before it was there but after seeing it i knew a lot of people think this way
