The life has no meaning unless you want to fool yourself

It is Friday night around 10 p.m. I am at my desk writing this post. Nothing to do, nowhere to go. Today is my daughter's birthday and we went for a lunch. After, she went to meet her friends, they are making a party for her. Well, I am not welcomed. My girlfriend is far away, my friends are busy, I am alone with my blog. I just finish watching Monty Python's The Meaning of Life.

According to the movie the meaning of life is not 42 it is the following: Try and 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.


And here I am, Friday night I am thinking about the biggest question. However you phrase it - What is the meaning of life? What is my purpose? Who Am I? What is true?

You take that the meaning of life involves some kind of joke, if I ask you, you will respond with nervous laugh and an attempt to change the subject. For you, this question is threatening, too unnerving to dare to say anything sincere or serious and so laughter seems your only safe response.

You simply do not know what is the meaning of all this. You don't know why you are here and what is your purpose. You have heard of various theories but all of them are just hearsay.

Nature seems to be a purposeless and meaningless machine. Did we pay for our new mental freedom by sacrificing the meaning of our existence? Partially knowledgeable man stands alone, uprooted in an icy universe, lost in the chain of generations which arose from nothing, and become nothing. What is the purpose of it all? Is this the desired purpose of understanding, the last great answer to all questions asked of nature?

Man has “experimented” himself out of a Godly order, away from an inner feeling of security. . . . He has made a taboo of the question of the meaning of human life—its portal has been nailed shut with planks. He no more dares to touch it, because he fears to find the dismal answer that our life has no meaning at all.

I have my own theory which I have build for quite some time. I will repeat my previous post on this subject. What else can I do?

The life has no meaning unless you want to fool yourself. 

All creation boils down to two things: awareness and appearance, soul and matter, purusha and prakriti... etc, however you name it. I call it awareness and appearance.

Awareness is unchangeable, it is true, appearance is ever changing and it is just belief, not true. Consciousness is also content of awareness and albeit very close to it, unfortunately it is temporary, so it is not true.

Awareness or so called God, Soul, the Absolute, Parabrahman, basically has no name. It is "not this, not that". It is perfection. And there is a big problem.

Imagine that you live in perfect universe on a perfect planet... what will you do? What? Everything is so perfect and there is nothing else to do but to watch and what you will look at... Water flowing? Grass growing? Planet spinning? How about shaping the rocks and wind shaping the mountains? How about looking at ocean and waves?

How long could you watch a perfect nature? You'd turn into a drooling idiot before lunch.

Boredom is the problem God trying to solve and the perfection of existence isn't solving it and there is no possibility of imperfection to spice things up. God is itself the perfection.

So, that's the setup of your existence. Perception, despite not existing, must perform the vital but impossible function of amusing God. This is impossible because God is not capable of being finite and imperfect. Chaos is not possible, flaws and errors are not possible, irrationality and inadequacy are not possible. Nonsense is not possible. The God created from the awareness is perfect, there is no problem.... And that is the fucking problem.

So lets there be something when there is nothing! 

And thus was born the illusion of appearance! And thus was born the illusion of time, energy, matter, space, causality, duality and life. With life, the illusion of you and your ignorance came around so you can ask the question... what is the meaning of all this.

It has no meaning, whatsoever.
