Susan Piver on the Meaning of Life

SPB_BlackExcellence Reporter: Susan, what is the meaning of life?

Susan Piver: I really don’t know. It is something that arises (and dissolves) from moment to moment and any attempt to grasp meaning seems to automatically dispel it. The greatest meaning of all seems to be in riding the waves themselves.

The only other thing I can offer is this: The meaning of life is to be alive. Fully and completely and fearlessly. I’ll go with those notions for now! Oh, and PS, help your fellow beings. A lot. This really helps to answer all such questions.
