Meaning life has To pass on to others what you have learned to be true, good & useful, to dig down into the depths of reality for truth.

Religion, in the sense of Church is necessary for certain people & they are welcome to its consolation. For me, I have created my own religion or philosophy by which I “live & move & have my being?.”

What keeps me going? Having an objective, good health, interest in my work, faith in the truth of my objective.

What are the sources of your inspirations. The abject misery of ignorance in human beings.

What is the goal or motive force of your toil. To definitely establish certain structures of society which shall uphold such truths as Science & research may discover.

Where do you find consolation & your happiness. In seeing the results of your in happier lives, and in hearing others [claim for their own?] ? ↑voice↓ , ideas that you passed on created & passed on. Where your treasure lies.
