What about your idea on the greatest of all existential questions: What is the meaning of life?
My answer will probably call up other questions, but I can only applaud that. Each individual comes to the world in a certain context, a certain time and culture, where it gets meaning. Despite the context in which a person comes into the world and lives his life, he is not completely left to the circumstances. He can become aware of his situation and experience a lack of meaning when life confronts him in this respect. Due to this the person can start cherishing the desire to change things in his life. The ideas and dreams that appear to us during such moments and the values that we want to follow give meaning to our life. From these events we obtain new insight in our situation. In other words: our situation gets a new meaning in light of such events. Feel free to share your ideas on this.
