What if life?

The nature of adolescence is for one to find themselves, and as such I find that this comes with the occasional existential crisis. But recently I have been having questions about life, and the nature of consciousness and I thought there would be no greater place to find answers to some of humanities most profound questions than right here in The Verge Meta forums (or possibly just find more questions). So if you would like to get all Meta up in this hishouse reply to this post and I will try my best to make you feel as confused as I am... or maybe I'll just humor you with some hilarious GIFs.
