Seems to me a very modernistic purpose. The biosphere has never been a point of interest to mankind except for the last 50-100 years or so. I cannot remember one philosopher in history who ever mentioned this as the purpose of human life.

The meaning of life is to not intentionally step in dog shit or if you do to learn to deal with it.

I don't know if i agree with you ModerNietz because life seems to be more in favor of some people then others and society creates unhappy miserable people.
