Does life make / have sense?

You might say that life doesnt have to make sense, and that that is the reason why it is so magical. But can you live senselessly? How? Whats the point of life and living, if there is any? Is there something universal we can all live for? How can we gain and preserve it?

    Dec 25 2011: You've asked a universal question which deserves a universal answer.
    The meaning of life is: fulfillment.
    Great. Can I narrow that down? No sorry... That's as reductive as I can get.

    We are all looking for fulfillment, yet what will cause this state of fulfillment is different for each one of us. Because, what might fulfill me, will not necessarily fulfill you and vice-versa.
