How you live your life as a sentient being is perhaps more relevant than what purpose does life itself serve.
There are few guarantees in life and to assume that any answer to any question is correct is arrogant folly.
“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing” – Socrates
However everyone is entitled to an opinion. Here is mine…
Life is the most amazing thing; it is something that we take for granted because we do not know any better.
If we could understand just how surreal the whole concept of life is - we would surely implode or just fade away into insanity.
Hold your hand up in front of your face, wiggle your fingers - do you understand how beautiful, bizarre and amazing the whole concept is?
Take a walk outside look at anything, listen to everything, touch something, smell the soil, taste the air - these are not things you should be able to do - you should not exist.
Life is not something that should exist; it does not make sense, it cannot be explained rationally.
Life is enjoyed in the simplicity, the natural beauty of nature and emotion
Life is hard, life is oh so painful.
But... life is beautiful; without life there is no love.
Without love there is nothing.
Therefore the meaning of life is life, because without life there is no love
Love is all - cant you feel it?
Try and be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.
You're probably wondering why the meaning of life is just a number.
I won't explain to you this, but i'll tell you one thing.
To understand the answer, you must first understand the question.
