Whats the meaning of Life?
God sometimes this question pops into my head and I as usual get confused and start to wonder whats the meaning of life? I mean we live, we die, then what? I am not a religious dude that believes in God, I am an Atheist or how you call them in english. Sometimes life just seem to have no meaning. And not to mension all the problems each one has, some worse than others. Whats your answer to this question? Since there really is no true answer you can say whatever you want and post what you think life is and its meaning.

I'm just trying to get by on the very very little money I have. Been unemployed for a few months now. Going to start studying on monday (Naturvetenskapligt basår på distans). Getting student loan will be better than getting the unemployment insurance.This is The Signature©

Yes, I agree with you. Youre a smart guy, what happened that you cant find a job? Were you just lazy at school and at the university? Hope for the best to you man. Good luck with the studying

I haven't been to University yet. That's why I'm gonna study now, so I get in on the engineering programs. I guess I'm kindof lazy as well. I've had such a good job being an IT-tech that I really haven't been that interested in a job that's not as good...This is The Signature©

Good luck with everything Dude.
I am going to the IT-Gymnasiet right after summer. Going to study for the things I like and probably later go to University and continue the studying. IT is my passion

That's great. Hope everything goes well. (I applied for a teaching job there but I guess I didn't get it. Oh well, I'm not a teacher anyway...).This is The Signature©

Think if you got the job, and I got you as my teacher, without knowing you were Agent_Embryo from TechIMO, that would be so strange! I think we would discover it with the time, since I would have told you I learn alot from this site and you would say, who are you? I am Agent_Embryo in TechIMO! Would be pretty funny though, but still strange..

You want the basic meaning?: survive, reproduce, die.

Now thats something to live for! Life has a meaning after all, if this is it its a boring one, and not so helpful when you feel down.

Life is like a beanstalk isn't it ?????
In held T'as in I (Glimpses of Nirvana) by the Procol Harum
Read on ......
In the darkness of the night, only occasionally relieved by glimpses of Nirvana as seen through other people's windows, wallowing in a morass of self-despair made only more painful by the knowledge that all I am is of my own making ...
When everything around me, even the kitchen ceiling, has collapsed and crumbled without warning. And I am left, standing alive and well, looking up and wondering why and wherefore.
At a time like this, which exists maybe only for me, but is nonetheless real, if I can communicate, and in the telling and the bearing of my soul anything is gained, even though the words which I use are pretentious and make you cringe with embarrassment, let me remind you of the pilgrim who asked for an audience with the Dalai Lama.
He was told he must first spend five years in contemplation. After the five years, he was ushered into the Dalai Lama's presence, who said, 'Well, my son, what do you wish to know?' So the pilgrim said, 'I wish to know the meaning of life, father.'
And the Dalai Lama smiled and said, 'Well my son, life is like a beanstalk, isn't it?'
Held close by that which some despise
which some call fake, and others lies
And somewhat small
for one so tall
a doubting Thomas who would be?
It's written plain for all to see
for one who I am with no more
it's hard at times, it's awful raw
They say that Jesus healed the sick and helped the poor
and those unsure
believed his eyes
- a strange disguise
Still write it down, it might be read
nothing's better left unsaid
only sometimes, still no doubt
it's hard to see, it all works outhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iE9TN...eature=related
The Nation which forgets it's defenders will itself be forgotten
You cannot make peace with dictators. You have to destroy them–wipe them out!
