Pencil Vs Camera - 21

NEW: Prints now available!

Update: I've made this small animation based on the above image

Just a joke. Bless our Lord! I took this photo from a plane and
also made the rough sketch. I had tons of ideas for the sentence
on the paper, it was really difficult to make a choice... =D

I still wonder... who are we? What's the real purpose of our
existence? Love and happiness are the 2 main words that
come to my mind. But after? Any answers?

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

See THIS VIDEO showing 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in
progress (with a small animation and some original music).

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

There´s a strange man called Cloud
He lives above the crowd,
We thought him God
For he was odd,
But he's just and old man and proud!

I guess there are many answers to your question, but I live by two.
1.) Life only exists to pass on knowledge that we've gathered of all existence of anything we know of, and possibly further onward. Life simply does this by surviving using skills and techniques that we have learned as the first homo-sepians ( I hope I spelled that right <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/s/s…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="391" title=":) (Smile)"/> ) have discovered. We keep exploring and learning to guide life through the unknown, which is why many believe ( that would be me) time travel may be impossible, because if it we're, we'd have no purpose. We'd venture forever into the future to learn things about our human nature that we may have never learned before, and then rendering us useless. (sorry for the long response)
2.) Our religions have led us to be here for one main purpose (possibly the same of passing on universal knowledge to all life), and even people who don't agree with religions, maybe they think we are here for the very same reasons (in a sense [by passing on what we have accumulated over our lives: knowledge]).

Anyway, back to the picture. It is very humorous <img src="e.deviantart.net/emoticons/d/d…" width="21" height="15" alt=":dummy:" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="574" title="I am a dummy!"/> and I love the clarity of the clouds with the sketch, it makes it look like it fits together perfectly!
