the universe does not need to have meaning behind it.
The meaning and reason of the universe and life has been debated over for centuries. religion always states that the point of life is to serve god, or gods, or to fulfil your role in society. with religion, the meaning of the universe is usually not to far off from the reasons for life. as in to serve the god or gods of those religions. with modern discoveries, we have found that the meaning of life itself is pointless, but we are extremely lucky to be here because the probability that any one of us being in existence is next to 0%. there is no meaning behind the universe; however we are trying to discover one. we, as humans, are always perceiving the world as one thing or another and try to make sense out of everything. when we are searching for meaning behind the universe, we often miss that the universe might not need to have a meaning. there may not be any meaning to it at all. and actually, it makes sense that the universe has no meaning to it. the only reason we try to find meaning behind the universe is because we are a curious people who want to be able to understand everything we can. we are always interpreting the world around us based on our built up experiences from our past. take written language, for example. all the text in this is interpreted by our brains and we see meaning in it. but in reality, it is just a bunch of scribbles. it has no other meaning besides what we give it.
