In my opinion the true meaning of life is happiness , enjoy the small things and don't sweat the things you have no control over , happiness comes from within and laughter is the key to happiness.
Laugh every day.

It might not be for everyone but it works for me.

DNA says to reproduce. Doesn't care how.

Well we must examine the nature of existence..

Existence itself will be here for eternity..

Now we ask.. what is existence..?

Well the question answers itself and you can't escape the answer.

It's you..! The thing that you can't escape.. the self!

It is where all 8nformation leads too and comes from.. It is within your awarenesd that things take place..

Without you..existence would still be there.. but you would not!

So if we conclude that the self is the only way we/you exist then we can examine what we are and where we are going..

Thus that you can't escape the self.. so we must find the purpose/function/meaning of that self..

I'm trying to make an argument for self referential awareness/existence..

So now we posit the question: what is the self? The self that sees.. that experiences.. The self that has needs and wants..

The categorical imperative IS thus! For who would necessarily choose harm or boredom.. or having a bad time..?

It is the self that seeks, that is curious.. that in and of itself is meaningful.. And thus does the meaning of life hinge on the person... their very being and its modes of experience..

So we conclude that the meaning of life is to have meaningful experiences..

Take tte concept of peek experiences.. following your curiosity.. Following your will and will power..

Nietzsche thought the meaning of life (at least from a male perspective) IS will to power..

And he at least has it partially correct!

So the meaning of life is to fulfill the being. The one that is eternal.. the one that is here now..


Actually, existence and destruction will always be with all of us...that means death too. We have to factor that reality into our psyche as well to get a well developed sense of the meaning of life.

The purpose of life is to for a shot while defy the 3rd law of thermodynamics, eventually not succeeding.
Should we give up, given our ultimate fate. ?
Na.

The purpose of a universe is to produce a planet that can spawn life.
The planet's purpose, is to eventually eject the final product of it's work back into space.
