Ragnar Stroberg on The Meaning of Life

IMG_0065Excellence Reporter: Ragnar, what is the meaning of life?

Ragnar Stroberg: To me, it’s clear that life itself doesn’t have an inherent meaning, any more than any other process in the universe does. But this shouldn’t prevent us from assigning meaning to our lives anyway. My preferred way to do this is to attempt to defy our mortality by creating something good that outlives us, be it an idea, a work of art, a rock wall, or another human being.
