In other news, I realized what my goal in existence is:
To make people happy.
That's really it, that specifically. It's not a lesser goal, or something that I'm doing coincidentally because it happens to coincide with some other goal. And it's not a trite, airy-fairy sort of thing either. But at the same time, neither is it a very serious, complex thing that must be brooded over for hours.
It is, in fact, very simple. My goal is to make people happy.
If anybody has ever wondered why I do anything I do, that should explain it quite handily. Really -- it's pretty all-encompassing. :-)
