A good example of how the standard dictionary definitions are "meaningless," as are all words in them, is the word "meaningless." See the undictionary and meaning, and one will see how there is nothing "meaningless," or any "meaning," in any word including "meaning", except as hints to get us where we need to go. Most people are lost in a sea of belief that words have absolute meaning and have become word fundamentalists. This has led to a world where people fight to the death defending words and ideas that they love. Each object speaks it's own meaning and to call any object meaningless, is belittling. There is no object that one can point to that is "meaningless." "Meaningless," is only a false idea, as are all words.
"Zerbinas mother said her life was meaningless, so she joined the army to kill people she didn't know, or be killed herself to give her life meaning. Her action had no "meaning," nor were they "meaningless." They were beyond words/concepts/ideas including the word beyond. They spoke for themself, interpreted differently by each person who perceived them.

East Coast, West Coast. Just accept they're different and have their own qualities, and equal (if not more so) flaws.
So many more important things to talk about people.
