All and sundry seem to have hunted for the meaning of life...Does life *need* a meaning ?

asked in life

robinsamuels answers:

Deep or what!

I guess it must depend on the individual. There are plenty of people who don't care for anything but their own pleasure. I suppose that in a way, the pursuit of their own well being is a meaning in their lives, but that's not what most people would mean by the phrase.

I know I'll never get everything I want for myself and that I could never give everything to others that I may want to give. So for me, I need to see that there is some sort of balance between what is good, bad, and ideal. Then I mix in a healthy dose of realism.

As the Rolling Stones sang:

You can't always get what you want
And if you try sometime you find
You get what you need

I believe humans are the only kind of life that would question whether there is/needs to be a meaning to life.

We are a very small percentage of the life on Earth and the rest of it gets by without knowing or caring the meaning of it so I'm inclined to think there is no meaning, or if there was a super power that created us all, it didn't intend us to find out what it is.

If man/womankind is a freak accident then there is no meaning. IMO.

So long as we each have a purpose in life I don't think we need to worry about the meaning of life.

Life doesn't neccessarily need a meaning, but it gives it that extra sparkle.
