    There is no objective meaning to life. Make your own, you'll probably enjoy it a lot more.

    I think it was the Greek philosopher Aristotle who pondered this question and came to the conclusion 'Drink beer and shag sluts'.

    No stated point, just do what makes you happy. But the notion that it is a test seems slightly scary.

    Google definition, nice . Shame it doesn't explain the purpose of the growth/reproduction/functional activity/continual change -which is the point of the question 'what is the meaning of life?' - assuming that we are already familiar with a typical dictionary definition.

    Life is about living not just existing! Whats the point in making it to your 100th Birthday if you've not enjoyed yourself along the way! Live everyday like there is no tomorrow! Take risks, make mistakes, remember everything, forget nothing and make a mark on the people around you. Do everything for yourself, make your self proud but most importantly make sure your happy!

    I love how in the same sub-forum there is this thread and then one entitled 'where to buy ariel tabs in bulk'...puts things in perspective really

    While we're on it though, personally I believe that you have to find your own meaning in life - something personal to work to

    life is a process, not a word, so i doubt it has meaning. its like saying what is the meaning of drinking water, digesting it, then peeing it out again. however, the drinking water process has a purpose, as life has a purpose, as apposed to a meaning. there is an evolutionary purpose, but you can also have a spiritual purpose.
    you choose what your spiritual purpose is in what you do. If your a parent, your purpose is to raise children, if a techer to inspire knowledge, if a doctor or nurse, to save lives etc.
