Question: What is the meaning of life?

Keywords: ,

  1. 42? Definitely 42.


  2. 42 without a doubt…ps I hope you know where your towel is šŸ™‚


  3. Well, it’s nothing very special. Try to be nice to people, avoid eating fat, read a good book every now and then, get some walking in, and try and live together in peace and harmony with people of all creeds and nations.

    (But really, whilst all evidence to date indicates chocolate, it’s probably actually 42)


  4. Dear Nandoslover; You asked the very ‘Ultimate Question’. I heard that question many times while I was working as a volunteer in ‘Life Line’ in Korea. I was asked the very same question in Nepal, too. It is the ultimate question, universal question for ages and ’42’ is very interesting answer.

    This is the ‘Disease Zone’ and I will start with ‘biochemical understanding of life’ first. Then I’d like to share with you my personal experience and personal opinion about ‘the meaning of life’.

    In biochemistry, ‘life’ is so closely tied up with respiration; the process of breathing in oxygen of the air and breathing out carbon dioxide into the air. This respiration process is dealt in ‘Metabolism’. It is very complicated process and I will not go into it any deeper. However, people usually do not give much thought about it and think this respiration is so easy because we do it ALL THE TIME without any effort. But it is not so!

    ‘Life’ will be easier to understand if we think of it in relation to death, specially the moment of the last breath. Recently I was standing right next to my mother’s death bed, holding her hand while she was breathing her last breath. She lived on this earth for 88 years and she is gone!

    People get to think of ‘the meaning of life’ more seriously at the funerial service than ever before. And I did too. At the wall, there was a big hanging screen with the photo of my mother and what my mother used say was written at the bottom-“I am just grateful to God!” It inspired a lot of people, not only us but also the visitors.

    ‘Life’ is NOT nothing, it is very special thing and meaningfull thing! We should be ever so grateful for the breath we take in and take out! I think of ‘Life’ as a journy with a destination. Our body is left behind but we all know that we are more than physical body.

    As conclusion, I personally think ‘the meaning of life’ is rather personal and individual. As I look back, my mother had ups and downs in her life but she found ‘the meaning of her life’ in God and she was ever so grateful, and lived grateful life and returned to God. And that is what ‘my meaning of life’ is. Thank you for asking this ultimate question.


  5. I’m pretty sure people have been wondering this from the beginnings of time.

    You got an answer?

    Personally, I don’t try to think about it and just live my life the best I can! Life’s short (you’ll notice once you pass 25, years seems to fly by), all you can do is give it your best shot
