As for meaning in life — there is none. The secret of life is there is no secret. Not only is there no meaning, THERE CAN be no meaning to life. Meaning is something only an individual can erect. The cosmos is just there. Were one to posit a God or creator, even an alien child just playing with cosmic Legos, what meaning could there be? And what would be the meaning of the cosmic child’s play and existence?
The most pertinent and powerful fact of the human condition is that we are the creators and arbiters of our own lives and meaning.
