It seems to be a question that has haunted man ever since he has existed. Why am I here? What is the point to all of this? What is the meaning of life? Doubtless, we all have pondered this question many more times than just once.

Start by taking apart the two central words in the question -- meaning and life.

Now, "meaning" has, well, several meanings. The one that is implied in the question, is this -- "important or worthwhile quality; purpose."

Likewise for the word, "life" in that there are several definitions for this word. I'm going to use this one, "the existence of an individual human being or animal."

So, if we combine the two, we have a broader question to consider: What is the important worthwhile quality, or purpose, of the existence of an individual human being or animal? Now we have a more precise question to consider.

This question must reside exclusively somewhere near the heart of man's quest to find answers; for we are fairly certain that animals don't have this concern. Certainly, in the entire history of mankind, this question must have frequently come up and obviously, there were some who came forward with answers. For buried deep within the question is a fear-based insecurity and at the base of that insecurity is the taunting concept of being able to experience another life after this one expires.

Beginning in the far distant past, those who came forward with the most plausible answer to this question, were usually not only rewarded, but given additional consideration in other matters. They were believed to have special insight, knowledge, wisdom or powers that often extended into other realms.

Since my father was a life-long Republican and my mother was a Democrat, there always seemed to be a political undercurrent going on in my family. (more...)
