Fluffy One, it may be that an ephemeral thing can be worthwhile. Eternal
life and cosmic significance are perhaps not necessary. Maybe preserving
something irreplaceable, like the community of life on earth, for a few
more instants is worthwhile. Apparently some of us think so anyway.
Why not indulge us in our fantasies, it won't cost you much.

The most sunny scenario I have heard is somehow matter slips into another plane of existence which sows the seed for NEW life to begin again, but even this sunny day scenario assumes the eradication of every single bit of the universe in terms of life.

The struggles, the battles, the personal triumphs in tragedy all rendered totally insignificant by cataclysmic events that will destroy the entirety of what ever existed. If you want to have a interesting experience try to climb your own family tree and see how little you know of those you are related to even 150 years ago. Lives of futility. The life was one of personal triumphs and tragedy and is largely already forgotten.
