    "Meaning" is a concept limited to human psychology. There's no particular reason to suppose that existence or life in itself has meaning beyond what we ourselves define, unless you believe that there is an objective intelligence (specifically a creator of our life) to conceive of such a meaning. I suspect this is a thread more suited to philosophy than it is to one of the scientific forums, so I'm going to move the thread there.

    Christoffer Joost, I don't know the meaning of life but I can tell you what it ain't.

    It ain't being against life and all that that entails.

    The meaning of life is purely subjective and differs from each individual. For some there is meaning in simply living life and for others there's a need for a creator or something more. There are also people who believe that we humans by ourselves create a meaning to a universe which would otherwise be meaningless.

    Objectively there is no meaning to life. We exist, survive and reproduce, that's all. The question could be thought of as faulty since it asks for the purpose of it all, and since the question is actually posed to nothingness the answer will always be nothing.

    The meaning of life is to reach a technological state where we can bend and defy the laws of the universe and conquer its knowledge and achive immortality.

    My life is meant to serve as a warning to others.

    Worthy enough.

    This is something you need to find out for yourself. No one can tell you what the meaning of live is, even if that person is giving you a true answer. We perceive the world within our senses, everything is within us, that includes reality. And each has his or her own perception of reality, but which is real? If you think life is more than to live, reproduce and die, maybe you should ask yourself about perceiving reality.

    Experience: your life is the total of your experiences thus life means experience, but I doubt that's what you mean by "meaning"
    soooo
    becoming: the meaning of life is to grow and excersize will. That is why religions are so popular, because they are 99.9% true, other than all that psycho-spiritual mumbo jumbo. By excersizing your will you become more of an individual, more of a creative force in the universe, and lesss of a peon doing what is expected of you... If you think there is an answer, go to church, if you don't drink a beer. If you think you make the answer in the way you live your life, then start living! and don't ever look back!

    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.
