A meaning of life

I was thinking about why we are here, in this life. Most people ask why at some point in life. Many people create elaborate theories about the meaning of life. But one of the most fundamental reasons we are alive is to carry on the species. We are living creatures like all of the other living creatures of this planet and we are wired to survive. To propogate the species and help it survive. Though we may not create offspring ourselves, we were created as offspring and will have some impact on this world and the lives of others. In this way the world goes around and around, generation after generation. We exist to continue existing. A lot of our behavoir in life stems from this basic purpose of life. This is A meaning of life. How do we proceed from there? We could start by not destroying our chances for survival.
