The meaning of life is to not know the meaning of life. As simple and bland as that may be that is the answer. Whether that means you make your own meaning from there or that it can have a different meaning ( an absolute one, to you, or others) is another question in itself which falls UNDER life's meaning...which is not to know a meaning.

So you have an answer and a question (which can't be answered) simultaneously: We cannot know the meaning of life and in regards to that, does it still have a specific meaning or meaning of some kind that we cannot know?

So in essence, the question we want to know should be "why can't we know?" and there are too many questions and contradictions that would come from any reasoning concluded or the actual meaning is beyond our comprehension.

It is not that we all need to be in agreement for the meaning of life to hold true. It is that if that meaning truely is fact it would have to hold true to every person. For this to occur, all would have to be right, some would have to be right, and none would have to be right all at one time.

It is only in not knowing a finite absolute answer that any meaning can really hold true.
For someone to be proven right....that would mean someone would have to be proven wrong.

For someone to be proven wrong, there must be someone (or something/s) to possess the knowledge to know something to be correct.

Because we cannot attain the knowledge to prove someone right or wrong...all possibilities must exist in this present state...which is time continuing. All meanings must exist, some, one, and none.

Only through no one having knowledge of the meaning of life are all these things possible at the same time.

The meaning of life is a subjective question perhaps. The answer may vary from person to person to aardvark to flower.
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…
The meaning of life is.... life

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?

Something that can only be defined by you. Not by somebody else.
Nobody can define the meaning of life for you because for everyone it is different. I believe the meaning of life is to challenge what is fated to happen to all of us (Death, Destiny, etc). Others would say the meaning of life is to find the meaning of life.

For those people who do not wish to sit through Monty Python's masterpiece, here is the Meaning of Life:

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 now know the Meaning of Life.

The meaning of life is infact 42.

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.
{"Cave man" lays out following sentence in Scrabble stones: "What do you get if you multiply six by nine?")
Arthur: Six by nine? Forty-two? You know, I've always felt that there was something fundamentally wrong with the Universe.

The meaning of life is to create more life.

Bacteria split. Trees bear fruit. Humans... you can figure it out.
Should anything ever, ever interfere with this basic law of nature, we'd all be screwed.
