Beautiful thread, often neglected thoughts... To me, the meaning of life is finding the meaning of life, let me expand.
As an agnostic person (I was going to write atheist but my views have recently changed), I also strongly believed whole heartedly in Darwinism and evolution and just like you

Interesting you would post this now. I've been pondering these very things lately. Were we "fast-tracked" at some point in our history, but just enough to nudge our evolution along without leaving a too obvious gap? A "missing link" so to speak?
Has our dna been encoded by a species so far beyond us technologically, that they would seem like "gods" to us? Does it possibly hold everything we could ever want to know about about them and ourselves? There's an Outer Limits(The new series) episode that touches on this very idea. It suggests that we just need to advance far enough to actually read those 12 sets of encyclopedia's, and we'll have our answers.
Some have also said that the only way to access that information is to go within. The so-called Akashic Records, collective unconscious, spirit, soul, etc. are all within, and with us all the time. It's just a matter of learning how to turn the key, and open the door.
Well, it's interesting to ponder, anyway.

Weirdly timed Thread, I just finished reading Junky by William S. Burroughs for probably the 40th time this past weekend and he makes his own Orgone Accumulator in there. I also understand that Devo's red hats were supposed to keep Orgone from escaping from the top of the head...or at least not float off. LolOrgone.
