It is contended in this book that much of the literature elaborates on a rather religious explanation of “Man’s Basic Purpose” for being on Earth. One religious explanation says that “Man’s Basic Purpose” is to worship, praise, and glorify God. It is the author’s view that we were not put here to glorify God. Here a more secular view of “Man’s Basic Purpose is given. One secular view says that “Man’s Basic Purpose” is to reproduce. The author goes from reproduction as a purpose for man’s existence to self-actualization. Self-actualization and creativity are the highest purposes for man’s existence.
