Meaning is what we make of it. I honestly think making a decision to help in the struggle against the current globalized techno-fascist regime and their attack is a better meaning than anything else. If we got one life to live, why not live it making an attempt to liberate the oppressed?

IMO to ask about the meaning of life is a testament to life insulated from the front lines. When the regime baptizes you in the violence against you, your family, and your community to solidify your position as a full time labor slave, your meaning is chosen for you.

We're all held captive to serve a life with the meaning of servitude to our despotic rulers. So right now our overall actions say that the meaning of our lives is generally to serve the enforced regime.

I think many of us on these forums have the privilege of being the "free-range" livestock, rather than the "factory farm" livestock found digging for tantalum or jumping off of the roof of electronic manufacturing facilities. So we can ask about a general "meaning" and sort of choose, as long as we stay in our box and behave. I think continuing to serve the corporations is a meaning that I cannot allow for myself if I can take it, while being a full time insurrectionist Anarchist is one that makes me feel best about my existence and influence on systems of organized relationships.

Simple. We're turd factories. We poop out nitrogen to feed plants. Plants poop out oxygen to feed us.

TL;DR: There's no real meaning, but who cares? It doesn't matter that there's no "real" meaning. :)

I don't think life has any real meaning. It's purely up to us to make the most of it. We need to have as much fun as we can while helping others have as much fun as we are having. That's my philosophy anyways.

Life is what you make of it. Sorry if someone else said that already.

Life has no meaning as has been stated well by others.

Your life though? has whatever meaning you want to ascribe it. Pick a goal and head towards it change your mind and change tacks then. What do you want to be different about the world then it is now? Thats the meaning, go make that change happen.
