Life is to do things you like to do, be who you are, make friends and enemies, fall in love, and to die without any regrets.

I can't exactly say what life means. Since we have accepted that everything is made up of smaller particles, and everything in our body and everything we feel are just chemical interactions with each other in a definite pattern, basically we are all just lumps of particles that interact with each other. If so, then life itself is no different from chemical reactions of acids and bases. I dunno anymore. I guess what makes life different is that it has something to do with the supernatural (souls or spirits taking physical form), well that's what I think.

think again, and harder this time.

I'm going to take this opportunity to post the wiki for the meaning of life. Hoo Ha!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meaning_of_life

Also a line from GEB:
When a system of "meaningless" symbols has patters in it that accurately track, or mirror, various phenomena in the world, then that tracking or mirroring imbues the symbols with some degree of meaning - indeed, such tracking or mirroring is no less and no more then what meaning is.

Lol its kinda weird but sometimes I just imagine myself dead and inside the coffin. But from that point on, what will happen? Will I just kinda disappear forever? That's sort of chilling to the point that maybe I think people try to find something that only life has. What if it extends to somewhere beyond it? Lol its kinda hard to accept that we live just to be compassionate or do something to make a mark on the world. Is that all life can give? Even if it satisfies us, would it end there?

It's these kind of questions I have that kinda makes me think that there must be something out there that defines life and that it does have a purpose.

Life has no 1 meaning because it is defined by everyone who lives it and we all have different perceptions of what we live for.
The meaning I give to life is to look forward to death and don't cling so much to life because death may be the end of life but its the only thing certain to come of it. Death is how we all die no acceptions.

Dosen't make you all fuzzy inside but thats LIFE.
