You guys are way too deep for me. Life is finite. As time passes we have less. Hopefully I can get to play all the pieces I want to play. I hope I have enough time. I guess one thing working for me is that I am not quite angelic. They say He takes those who He loves most. I try to do a little bad thing or think about something mischievous whenever I do something nice. You know what I mean.

Without volition it would have to be. Obviously this doesn't apply to people. =/ For people, the meaning of life is what they make it—make, of course, is what separates us. It requires choice.

There can't be a meaning of life in the broadest sense. Meaning is a tiny part of life. If life itself had a meaning, that life and meaning would have to be tiny parts of something much bigger. But that would mean that "life" wasn't defined widely enough to start with.

Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.

As others here have said that you can make choices. I define life is that when you die, you can only take with you what you can put through a pin hole in a piece of paper which is effectively only memories. Everything else money, pianos must be left behind for others to enjoy.

If you are 21 and you live to 65 (65 is when most people retire and the actuaries calculate that the average person dies within 2 years of retirement) So that is 44 years or 2,000 weeknds in your life. Now this is not to depress anyone, but is a wakeup call to make every moment of your life count and do in your lifetime the things you want to do like playing the piano or whatever. $2,000 dollars is not a lot of money sitting on a table that represent your life in weekends.

According to actuarial tables, you will live another 20 years after retirement at age 65. Females maybe a year or two longer, men a bit shorter.

When Social Security was instituted waaaaay back when, the two year number was fairly close.

So--it ain't over yet. smile

My spouse and I saw the movie "Life of Pi," once last week and again today (we liked it that much). That movie made me think more about things like the meaning of life than any movie I've ever seen before. The cinematography is outstanding, as well.

The meaning of life? Well, 42 of course! wink

Seriously, I think life has the meaning you give to it. The problem is, once you realize it, it's hard to believe that some things are absolutely more important than others. I mean, one can "waste their life" doing things that we find irrelevant and still have a great life, while we can strive to build great things and end up empty-handed. Let's be honest; life usually doesn't end very well, with aging, sickness and death. This thought shouldn't be depressing, but stimulating: we really need to enjoy life while we can (easier said than done). Some will spend their life saving lives, others will idle about all their life. It's all good as long as they are content.

Life is short.
Life is precious.
Life is about the Moment.
If you know Music, you know the Moment.
i'm trying to expand this outside of music, into everything.


Rhythm & Chords, it's what I do.

But, there's also ice cream...which is, if not the meaning, then the purpose of life...

And the Beatles also sang: "Money can't buy me love, and it can't buy me happiness, but it sure can make our misery a little more toerable..." (at least I think it was them...)

The meaning of life is simple. We were meant to evolve. To discover love that is greater than selfish, self serving love. When we do that...
We live lives like caterpillars who were meant to become butterflies. The cocoon is our heart.
If we live building our cocoon in unselfish love. We live forever. This is like the butterfly, who is not restricted by gravity like the caterpillar. Gravity is time.
If we live for our caterpillar lives and ignore our cocoon. We die and never experience the next life. We die imprisoned by our own selfish, self serving wickedness...forever.
