I know two ways to approach the concept of "life has no meaning".
One is a very negative way of doing it, saying it in the sense of "its all pointless and I dont give a sh**"
The other is a very positive way of doing it, saying "life has no inherent meaning except the meaning I ascribe to it.. A white canvas upon which I project my creativity".
My 2 cents.
On another note, I noticed you are in Cairo, Egypt. I must say that during the times I stayed there (now and then a week or two for research on ancient egypt) all the heat and noise and dirt caused me to have a pretty low and pessimistic outlook on life.
In this case, my surroundings changed my philosophy.
Im not sure if your outlook is pessimistic or optimistic, but do you think your place of residence may have any effect on your outlook?
