The life has no meaning unless you want to fool yourself

It is Friday morning around 11 a.m. I am working from home today. I am not so busy, I finished the task I had for today and now I just wait time to pass. Holiday's mood is everywhere.

This week I was out every single night. Sunday, the party at my friends house. Monday, MK, the beer night, Tuesday out with my friends, Wednesday, Swan, up to 1.30 am...

And here I am, Friday morning I am thinking about this big question. However you phrase it - What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose?

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

We simply do not know what is the meaning of life, love and other things in this life. We don't know why we are here and what is our purpose. We 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 it...

The life has no meaning unless we want to fool ourselves. 

Imagine that we live in perfect universe on a perfect planet... what will we do? What? Everything is so perfect and there is nothing else to do but to watch and what we will look at... Water flowing? Grass growing? Planet spinning? Love blossoming?

How about shaping the rocks and wind shaping the mountains? How about looking at ocean and waves? How long could we watch a perfect nature? We'd turn into a drooling idiots before lunch.

Boredom is the problem God trying to solve in any universe 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 our existence.

Perception must perform the vital function of amusing us. This, in perfect universe is not possible because perfect universe 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. So the perfect universe is the problem.

So lets there be something when there is nothing! 

And thus was born the illusion! And thus was born the time, energy, matter, space, causality, duality and life. With life, the illusion of us and our ignorance came around so we can ask the question... what is the meaning of life. It has no meaning, whatsoever.

Regardless, we have to do the living part of this equation.
