Why create? Why procreate?

Why have kids?

To create means to grow, to make grow, to nourish [ker-]. To become more, to become bigger.

It is for our vanity

Vanity is not evil. If anything, to be self-focused is good.

The great thing about vanity is this:

We are more honest.

For example, there isn’t a “practical” reason to have kids. Humanity will survive. But my vanity:

I want my genes, and my self to propagate indefinitely into the future.

Asserting your soul or becoming immortal?

MY THEORY ON ART: WE WANT TO IMMORTALIZE OURSELVES.

So when we make birth to an art-work, we are becoming more. We are multiplying our self and our soul.

Thus my theory:

The desire to make art or to make children, is the desire to multiply ourselves and make ourselves immortal?
