Meaning of Life 2

Who Truly has the Answer?

 The true meaning of life is universal. It must be or it is not the actual meaning of life.

As an individual, can we determine the universal meaning for our life? Would not such a determination merely reflect how we, as an individual, felt about the world around us, our perceptions alone?


This would not reflect the true meaning of life because it is not all inclusive for all of humanity.

Hum… enigma?

If a single human could possess such knowledge or true all reaching power could they as an individual – then – make such an all sweeping determination for humanity as a whole?  Would the decision apply to every human everywhere?  Probably not.

Once again, would such a determination truly affect every other human who has ever existed? Well, of course not silly; then once again, not the true meaning of life.

After all, if we as individuals can decide that life is truly meaningless, then isn’t life meaningless for everyone if in fact that is the meaning of life?

Or what if someone could decide every life matters – then – doesn’t every life matter whether we think it matters or not? That is a lot of power for one person.

That is absurd isn’t it?

No, a single person cannot therefore make the determination as to life’s true meaning for all people for all time.

Though many are just arrogant enough to think they can make such a determination, for people like to think they are in control of their own destinies and so deceive themselves into thinking they can make such an important determination; however, on an individual level or basis we do not possess such a grand or far-reaching power… – Therefore, We Cannot Decide the meaning of life.

SO, who can determine such a weighty issue?

Would it not be The One who created us!  No, not Morgan Freeman: you are so silly!

And if there was no one who created us, not even Morgan Freeman, (Hum…?) then wouldn’t life just be meaningless?

Let me focus the point:

In the not too distant future humanity should be able to create Automatons: robots that are self-aware AIs (artificial intelligence) – [Duh] – systems. Possibly far into the future, one day, Robbie the Robot will turn to Rosie the Robotess and ask, “Why are we here?”  Rosie will likely just actuate her shoulder servos once or twice and raise her metallic blue hands.

The question is, who has the real answer to that powerful question?


The right answer could only come from Robbie’s and Rosie’s makers and no other.

For us, the correct answer can only come from our Creator.  And if there is no Creator then our lives are meaningless: truly and completely.  By the way, there is no need to prove that point because it is Soooo obvious.  But, if someone needs me to, I will be happy to explain the details later?  After all, this is the “Meaning of Life 2” and not the “Meaningless of life” though they could go hand in hand.  Curious!

Try as they (the Robots) will, possibly through free-will downloads for AI units, they will not truly – independently – or – individually – be able to answer that question accurately (what is the meaning of their lives?).

Why? Because only those who created Robbie and Rosie the Robots could correctly convey the real reason they were created.  Like to potter forming the clay: some pots are created to be thrown away and some are created to be treasured.

We’ll get to the meaning of life soon.  Not this blog or Post, but we will climb that conundrum of metaphysical hooey-gooey soon enough.

And yes, hooey and gooey are real words in the Steven R. Harrel lexicon of silly words.

Their meanings transcend space and time, mind and matter and are only truly found in “The Twilight Zone” of your mind.

Until next time!~?  Don’t lose that flipper controller thingamajig.  Is “thingamajig” really a word?

See you next time on This Side of the Whirlwind – wind -wind – echo – wind… 🙂
