I found the meaning of life

Every intellectual being has something they don't know.

Trust this, and you will trust everything! So let's all just have some fun!



Learning is fun! Spread the word guys. Work with others. Learning is Fun.

Everyone has something they don't know. Everyone has a piece of the puzzle that no one else has. That is why they must share it for the greater purpose in life.

All just so we can maximize our fun. It doesn't matter what happens next of if you fail, just trust that it's fun. Even failing is fun because it's learning expressed in a different way. Failing is just giving you more pieces of the big puzzle. It tries to guide you to the next level awareness and that's just fun. Doesn't that sound fun? It doesn't matter what I say or what I do, there are just things I don't know but all I gotta do is trust that what happens next is fun and it doesn't matter what I do because anything I do is gonna be fun and anything I work with is gonna be fun. Just trust that it's all good and go with the flow. Going with the flow is fun. EVERYTHING IS FUN.

I can talk about this forever, and it's too fun!

Hahahahahahahahahahaa YES

I'm having too much fun with this.

Ahhh... I'm hungry.

What if we can live forever just so we can maximize our fun forever? Hmm that's a fun idea to play with...

Life is a toy. The universe is just one massive playground to play with.

This is fun.

Boredom is not fun. Let's not be bored.

I just solved the biggest puzzle ever! I can die happy now. Let's go people.

    Jul 18 2013: I found the meaning that I gave to life and it is better than the last one. This meaning is so good that it sticks to life for a month now!

      Jul 18 2013: One of the wonderful things, I think, about watching young people grow up is their first discoveries of all kinds- and knowing there is a lifetime ahead for them of discoveries that will add nuance to or even completely overturn those discoveries in favor of new ones.

      If I am not mistaken, James is maybe 22?

      The sudden burst of energy around new thoughts/realizations is so familiar!

        Jul 18 2013: True. I love that energy. As a father of a 18 year old who challenges me in everything, I also love to parry with him. He knows that in order to win over me he will not be given any quarter :)
        I love to pit my mind with young people.
