2. The purpose of life is to survive and reproduce.

That's how most lifeforms operate. Humans have the unusual power of imagination. Because of that we can imagine all sorts of other reasons and purposes for our lives. It is a privilege to not have to worry about survival. Not all human beings have that privilege.

We can think of other purposes, so we do. But, they're human constructs, not imperatives.
