Oh the possibilities. There are so many ways to go with this. In a brief summary, what is your meaning/belief?

I get asked this question an awful lot. Comes with the territory.

My answer: to ask, "what is the meaning of life" is to ask the wrong question.

Better questions: how should I live? What is a good life? Which God will I serve, if any at all? What is beauty, truth, dignity?

And so on.

My belief is that we are here to procreate or at least make as mant attempts as possible while we're here.

Live every day as your last because you never know when it will be and go out with a bang. Never regret and learn as much as you can.

See what an intelligent answer gets you, Stone...


Nice response. Philosophy. It's a good thing.

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

Why does anything have to have meaning? My appendix has no meaning, but its still there. It used to have a meaning when we where cavemen, but it doesn't anymore. Maybe we used to have a meaning, maybe we didn't. If the matrix was true, then we'd have a meaning, to be a battery. But I'm pretty sure we aren't.

I believe the meaning of life is that there doesn't have to be any meaning, just a free life, to enjoy or to hate it, to pursue it and to fulfill it to the maximum or to give up on it, to be your own person or to be a copy of someone else, to follow others lead or to create your own, its yours to do what ever you want to do with it, and with no criticism.

Rupert, you've got it.

That's why I love you so.

Except for right now you come in second to Becky Buller. But that's just the flush of last night. It'll go away.

Maybe.

The only discernable empirical meaning of life is to replicate itself, which in itself is ultimately absurd.
Existence IS, and from the standpoint of meaning, it is absurd.

For me, on the subjective level, the meaning of life is to make it as kindly and pleasant as possible for myself and others, while experiencing the fascination of surfing the waves of absurdity.

The absurd is the essential concept and the first truth.

Of course, that "42" is in base 13. Only then is it the true answer!

A casual consequence of complex carbon-based chemistry. Nothing more, nothing less. Enjoy it while you can, for it can be snatched from you in nothing flat.
Will you walk into my parlour? said the Spider to the Fly,
Tis the prettiest little parlour that ever you did spy;
The way into my parlour is up a winding stair,
And I've a many curious things to show when you are there.

Oh no, no, said the little Fly, to ask me is in vain,
For who goes up your winding stair
-can ne'er come down again.
