I'm not asking about purpose. As an example: I write a book, then I die. Any emotional payoff I got from my work dies with me. Other people read it and die. They mifght as well have not read it, unless the book maybe drove them to "improve" human society. But that society will die too, like if the sun gets so big it swallows the earth. Even if we had settled other worlds by then, they'll eventually die by supernova or Big Crunch or whatever.
