    As long as you're enjoying life, then that doesn't seem like an unpleasant prospect. Everybody's gotta work to pay their due.

    It's how the system's worked for millennia. You put something into society, you get something back out.

    It does sound quite idyllic until you get ill, or get injured or run out of food, or the weather destroys your shelter, or you get crippling depression from the loneliness because humans are social creatures, or get bored af because your entire life and all your time would be spent keeping yourself alive as opposed to the rather trivial 9-5 job you left behind which served the same purpose with more rewards.

    Birth - unavoidable, sorry.

    School - unavoidable, will probably be ****, sorry.

    University - will be epic, you'll make friends for life.

    9-5 job. These are the working hours of most jobs. You're free to choose whatever you like, or even better, make your own. We live in a world where almost anyone can become self employed doing what they love now. Unfortunately, most people lack the commitment and dedication to see it through, and end up in what you would call a "desk job", as the safe option.

    Marriage, Kids - epic, you'll make friends for life.

    Retirement - all the pressures are gone, and you can do as you like. Depending on how good your "9-5" job was, this could be as early as 50.

    Die - unavoidable. At the moment. There is a pill that can drastically slow down your aging though. Don't think it's been released yet, when it does it will likely be far too expensive for most people. But again, depending on how good you made your 9-5 job, it's always a possibility.

    There you go, doesn't seem so bad now, does it?

    The ultimate goal of life is to know your creator.
    He says you need to be born again, i.e. receive His Spirit, just like all the disciples did (Acts 2:4, 33, 39).
