I'm going to give something new a try here.... This is from a program I use called "Freeplane". Let me know if you're able to comprehend or not. I much prefer mindmapping to paragraph writing.

There are four main modes of thinking: empirical, rational/logical, faith/authority, and intuition. From first to last, you go from more complex to less complex. The more complex ones are generally the most useful in analyzing the world. Smart people get used to this, so they put everything under the empirical and logical microscope. I know I've been guilty of it.
However, some parts of life are simply primal. They always were faith and intuition driven, and it's best to leave them that way. We are approaching the very basics of life in this conversation. Above my logic driven answers of how one can survive (thru self, genes, and memes) is an intuitive driven answer that, yes, I must survive. It just feels right, and I'm going to leave it that way.
If you're looking for logic as to why the human race, or just yourself, should survive, you will be greatly disappointed. Morals of that sort are total human constructs with nothing backing them but intuition also!

P.S: Sorry for the bad my-reply-to-yours ratio, but I don't need to use lots of words for my arguments on this matter, so far
My "why" is often fear of repercussions. Sometimes not, but it usually is.
