"Were you... born?" 🏁 ON ANY SUNDAYS

"The purpose of life, as far as I can tell, is to find a mode of being that’s so meaningful that the fact that life is suffering is no longer relevant."

―Jordan Peterson


For you to be born, you’ll need…

2 parents
4 grandparents
8 great-grandparents
16 great-great grandparents
32 third great grandparents
64 fourth great grandparents
128 fifth great grandparents
256 sixth great grandparents
512 seventh great grandparents
1024 eight great grandparents
2048 ninth great grandparents

After 12 generations, that's a total of 4094 ancestors over the last 400 years to make you happen.

During that time, how many struggles, disappointments, love stories, heartbreaks, victories, setbacks, instances of blind perseverance, brutally unfair moments and lucky breaks do you think your ancestors experienced and overcame in order for you to be here now?

You've been in the making for a long time...

With this in mind, what will you do with it?

When does it make sense to quit pursuing the best possible life story for yourself?

...for them?

Answer: never
