What people try to create or find. A human condition in which they cannot exist in a meaningless state, even if they do live in a meaningless state, they need to pretend they exist in a world of meaning.

This is how religion started.
God gives meaning and purpose to my life.

I need to find out what this all means to me.

The meaning is the point or reason for something (what it means).
P.S. This is the meaning for the word meaning
This has no meaning - it just is.

Each thing has meaning in itself and describes her/his/it's self. Each thing is a living speaking "God," whether it speaks words or not. This is not to be confused with a word or words in an endless meaningless cycle, which are only approximate, biased definitions based on the senses and other words. Meaning unfolds from what has been folded into it in the first place. Things are not born into the universe, they unfold what has been enfolded into them in this one and only infinite dimensional hologramatic universe. (Each thing is in the universe and the universe is in each thing.) Each thing describes what it means and describes the path it has been on for at least the past 50 billion years.
"Edwina was a mute, but you could understand her meaning by her actions, or lack of them, even when she slept." " 'Life' is it's own meaning, and so is the 'universe,' that is why no one can come up with a definition in words to these basic questions of the 'meaning of life' or the 'meaning of the universe,' that makes any sense."

There are 3 definitions of this word which are unconsciously equivocated:

1) Definition → (e.g. Water means a colorless, transparent, odorless, tasteless liquid)

2) If... It follows that --→ (e.g. Clouds in the sky means rain)

3) Blissful Feeling → in which there is a temporal relation between two periods of time where the general condition of the later period has relatively improved over the older period ------→
(e.g. This experience was meaningful)

(e.g. Revisiting the darkest parts of my life was so meaningful to me)

(Length of the “→” represents the instantaneity of the effect)
1) e.g. Water means a colorless, transparent, odorless, tasteless liquid.
2) e.g. Clouds in the sky means rain.
3) e.g. Revisiting the darkest parts of my life was so meaningful to me.

Her "It doesn't mean anything. I was bored."

Hym "That's not an excuse. Just because you don't want to acknowledge the meaning doesn't mean that your actions are meaningless! If you and I were sitting in a room there was $10 sitting on the floor and only $10; and you take it, what it means is that you get $10 and I don't. I would also like $10. Are you going to give me the $10? Maybe I need it more that you do. You gonna bust out your purse and break me off a Fiver? We're both in the same room. Are you entitled to the money somehow? What did you do to deserve it? Nothing. You were just in the room. Doing the same thing I was doing. Except one of us now has has to go without and the other one doesn't. And if it was the other way around I wouldn't get away with what you're doing. It wouldn't fly if it was me and you fucking know it. Where is the place I can work at where there is $10 is just sitting there on the ground?"
