It is a point less life. We live then we die. We don't even know what type of life we would inherit after this one. It's unpredictable. Only the good and bad Karmas we have collected so far would remain with us. We don't know what will strike first. The good or the bad. That's why Buddha said do it right now. Sansara is dangerous.The whole point of life then becomes - people only live to end up dead! If the path of buddha is right, then it should be right even when all the people on earth follow that to the last word. Then in such a case what will happen is that either all people will end up dead due to starvation, or stop reproduction and hence end mankind or at least the people with high intelligence who are capable of thinking hard and deep will get extinct. In either case, mankind will end or be severely degraded beyond redemption. The whole point of creation itself will be meaningless. Then the whole point of Nirvana and meaning of life and creation will come into question. What are these? Not answering or maintaining silence is not an option as silence shows inability to answer
However, it is not easy to follow the middle path either. We are entangled with desire. It drives our selves and our Karma along side it. It just burns inside of us all. Keep the wheel of Sansara turning.
