    Great comments. You’re describing emotions that are powerful. A colorful sunset, an imposing cathedral, beautiful stain glass windows, inspiring music–if a person is open to it, awe results. This is a vacuous feeling that there is something “more.” But what? There must be some reason or purpose. If it is only random evolution , we need to better develop management as humanists and existentialists advocate. If there is a cause with purpose, we need to do a better job of cooperating. I think this is more than just a drive.
