1. The purpose of life is to create . . .

and happiness is a byproduct.

Whether the creation is a new life, or in service of preserving existing life, creation is at the core of our interactions. In all our social contacts, our work life, and our family connections, our lives are enriched through creative adaptations and new ideas. Happiness flows from this in every direction.

2. Apparently, life is like economics.

The Dalai Lama is thinking in micro terms and you're thinking macro.

The good news is that you're both right.
