Convince me that there is a better reason for human existence than maintaining the status-quo. Show me human existence is higher than that of ants.

it is conceivable that a million years from now the ants will be in control.
The universe only exists because a mind perceives it

It doesn't follow from this that our lives have no purpose, however. More likely they have purposes, though; trying to establish a single purpose for our lives seems futile, and needless.

If there was a purpose in the abstract that would be ok, but it sucks there is not a concrete purpose you can use right here right now.

The reason for human existence is to ascend - not to accept the petty and trite human history to date but rather to ascend past it. Not to accept a history of war and destruction, murder and mayhem, but to accept a history that transcends the old and destructive human ways and leads to a hypothetical New Dawn.
Live all you can; it's a mistake not to. It doesn't so much matter what you do in particular, so long as you have had your life. If you haven't had that what HAVE you had?...What one loses, one loses; make no mistake about that...The right time is ANY time that one is still so lucky as to have....Life!
