- Life View: Why are we here? What's the meaning or purpose of life? Where do family, country, and the world fit in? What is good and evil? Is there a higher power or something transcendent, and if so, what is its impact? What is the role of joy/sorrow, justice/injustice, love, peace, and strife in life?
