The Meaning of Life Doesn't Matter

One of the questions I tend to get is what I think the meaning of life is. I never have a good answer because I've never tried to answer the question. And I've never tried to answer the question because I don't think that it matters.

As children we're conditioned to do what we're supposed to do. That makes sense, because five-year-olds probably aren't well equipped to decide when to go to school or the dentist. The problem, though, is that we stay in this "supposed to" mode way too long. It becomes a habit and a way of life.

To me, figuring out the meaning of life is just an extension of figuring out what you're "supposed to do". Except, of course, that it can't be figured out. Humans have been trying forever and no one's gotten it yet. Odds are that you won't either.

On Shut Up and Take My Hand

Morals, everyone has them. I guess? That's not to say that everyone has the SAME morals. The most common are pretty basic such as: don't kill, don't steal, don't rape, don't lie etc etc ...

And I don't need to go into any of that, however, theres almost a form of unspoken set of morals that if someone 'breaks', they are deemed 'cruel' or 'inhuman' and so on. These rules are actually more like...a shared opinion. Shared by the majority anyways. Though that depends what rule we're talking about.

For example, its an unsaid (though more frequently voiced nowadays) rule that you don't cheat in relationships. And most people would agree that it makes sense and is something everyone should stick to. But then there are simpler ones like you shouldn't wear clothes that show too much skin.

Hmmm thats an interesting thing. Showing too much of your body is seen as slutty or 'asking for it' but in all truth, its the persons choice and right to wear whatever they want as long as it doesn't count as 'indecent exposure' or is harming anyone else. Someone revealing a lot of their body can't be used as an excuse to molest or rape them. That said, the human world isn't perfect and what should be one way isn't so, therefore, if someone is going to wear very little clothing and expose a lot of their skin, they should keep the consequences in mind, agreed?

Back to topic, such as the example I just gave, theres things in this world that aren't - and can't be, written as rules. Why? Because it depends.
