    Living up till the point that you die. In a world as wild and wooly as the one we live in, not much else can be inferred from this process we call life.

    To Find Truth. Truth is not subjective either. Relative truth is a self-defeatist way of looking at things. I think I've found truth even though many would disagree.

    You're born, you die. What you do in between that determines YOUR meaning of life and the meaning of the other lives you chose to get involved with.





    We bass playing rodents can be deep at times. :D

    42,

    Or, there is no single meaning to life.

    I feel that my personal goal and purpose to live is to live a good life and help people while doing my music thing.

    Everyone has their own purpose.

    Peace

    Humans are social animals. Our purpose is to be social. Love, friendship, and just plain contact are what it is all about. Communication is what it is all about.

  10. what? explain where '42' came from. I'm lost!

    I just finished cather in the rye a month ago for class, and theres a lot of talk about how life is a game, whether it is played or not. That's open for interpretation

    Personally, I'm sick of that book

    Also, i don't think the meaning of life just applies to humans. its a survival thing too. makin babies, y'know?

    yep, that and 42. -and determining, on average, if cats can take out chickens at will. I think they can. My wife does not agree.

    Me - "C'mon, look at him! He's got teeth, claws, he kills stuff all the time!"
    My wife - "He's so cute and fluffy though, he'd just run away from a chicken!"

    the meaning of life is to live life. cant worry about death for it is the one constant in this world that is going to happen. now prolonging that variable is good by eating healthy and what not, but if you say from now on your never going to have a big fat juicy hamburger, whats the point.
     
  16. The meaning of your life is to send me money and nice basses. You're behind schedule, so get started.

  17. the meaning of life is not to spen your entire life searching for meaning, but to live a life with meaning.

  18. What is the meaning of life?

    What do you mean?
     
  19. 42, but what is the question?
     
  20. The meaning of life is defined by consumption, elimination, and reproduction. The purpose of human life is (in my opinion) defined by the pursuit of happiness, regardless of how one chooses to do so (or even if said happiness is ever attained).

    That, and kickin' ass on bass! :D
