Imagine two children, aged five or seven or ten.
Give them a complex topic:
The universe, love, loss, happiness, death.
Let them discuss it as children might do.
Hmm... Two children. D for Dave and J for Jason. They are talking about... purpose of life.
D: You've found your purpose of life?
J: You mean, what do you want to eat later?
D: Errr... yeah, sort of.
J: I am not sure what mum's going to cook for dinner...
D: Well, I guess we can eat something before dinner.
J: So, you found the purpose?
D: You mean, food?
J: Yeah, that's what were are talking about...
D: Yeah, right. Erm... I think there are still some left over cookies.
J: The one with a lot of chocolate chips?!
J: Let's go get it.
D: Let's go.
Both children go towards their mother.
D: Mum, where's the cookie?
M: No, there's no more cookie. Both of you should be taking nap right now.
J: But, that's not the purpose of life.
D: Yeah, we are looking for our purpose of life.
M: Purpose of life? So, what have you found?
J: We found you... so we can get our cookies.
D: Yes... cookies is our purpose... and that's before dinner!
M: What? Your purpose of life?
D: Yes, yes, yes. We found the purpose, we found.. we found that food is our purpose of life.
