The real question
« on: April 23, 2015, 04:11:27 AM »
In the fewest words you can, explain what you think the meaning of life is

"Why do we exist?"
In the wasteland, the sly survive and the past and present are one, the sinners rot and the future is the ultimate purgatory

Matt Berry
The sun beyond the mountain glows
The yellow river seaward flows
You can enjoy a grander sight
By climbing to a greater height

I have run out of places to climb. I will abandon this body and take to the air. We will leave twin vapor trails in the air, white lines etched into these rocks. I am the aerial. In my passing, I will send news to each and every star.

DM: You'll need the spider's permission first...

It beats the alternative.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!

Mostly I think it's a big experiment to define the limits of sanity.

To find Aliens, Time Travelers and Espers and to have fun with them.
But it'll help

In the fewest words you can, explain what you think the meaning of life is

"Why do we exist?"

To be so obsessed with the "how" that the "why" becomes a nebulous blob of epistemological circular logic, and we die of old age before realizing the "why", while less answerable, was much more enjoyable to pursue. 
"Honor is the combination of idealism and the practical application of
it without regard for its personal cost to you."
