Shouldn't matter if you think there is something else after this one. If truly living is making an adventure out of this world/planet/backyard/one's dreams, then live that life. For others, this brings happiness. If truly living is going through the same routine, day after day, then live that life. For some that brings happiness. I don't mean the comfort & safety elements of routine, I mean happiness. What is cold is not not utilizing that free will you mention to truly make those choices. What is cold is knowing you have the choice, wanting to make the choice and then not making the choice. Science is a playground. Just make sure to live life in ‘this’ life. Shouldn’t matter if you think there is something else after this one.
