The Meaning of Life: A Trick Question?
The meaning of life when examined is really a trick question. There is none. Let's begin by examining what meaning is. Meaning is something that you do something for. Something you get out of something. The meaning of me going to the grocery strore is to get food. I get food out of going to the grocery store. Therefore, through this view, when you examine what you get out of life you realize that you get nothing. Out of years and years of working hard to make it to the top you then die and lose everything. So there must be no meaning to life. I suppose we are just creatures that float around doing things that make us feel good until we die. I can't extract any real reason for life so far. Though maybe I'm looking in the wrong directions. To prove my theory, if you can find a meaning to life, post it here. If I am not able to prove it wrong by my own reasoning then you will have shown me the meaning to life. Though, if I am able to disprove every reason then I must be right. Please do not make any ignorant posts. The content of this thread should be intelligent and well thought through.
