The human mind naturally tries to sum up everything to a simplyfied equation. Unfortunatly this can't be done with life and the universe thus there is no answer.

Socrates also questioned the ultimate meaning of reality. Adams came up with 42 but Socrates came up with Good. I tend to side with Socrates. The question is "Why are things the way they are." And the answer is because it is Good.

"God saw that it was good." That's Genesis.

But that don't mean anything. Socrates just came up with the good and decided it must exist somehow, with no way of conceiving what it would be. You may aswell say the ultimate meaning of reality is an invisible pink leopard.

If the ultimate foundation of reality were an invisible pink leopard, then socrates would probably say that was Good. :rotfl:

if you can't find the truth right where you are, where else do you expect to find it?

I need more info before i can tell you the answer...

Do u mean the meaning of life? the purpose of life? the nature of being? the truth of being? the nature of god? the purpose of god? what happens when we die? What is the purpose of the system/whole?

ok i'll just answer them all...

1. the meaning is subjective

2. the purpose is for it to continue towards its ultimate goal.

3. the nature of being is oneness.

4. the truth of being is beyond conception so i cant really put the answer into words, but it lies in the unity of opposites, the heart of paradox...look there.

5. The nature of god is the combined nature of all things spawned from god.

6.The purpose of god is to create and possibly maintain the system so that it may reach its ultimate goal.

7. When we die our ego is gone and we are again one with the source.

8.Honestly here i can only venture a guess, and say it is all trying to know itself competely, by exploring all possible paths, and putting itself or aspects of itself in all possible situations in order to observe the outcome and know itself. It is also possible that the entire reason everything exists is to relieve God's boredom/lonelyness.

Any more questions?
P.S. There is also no free will that is usable in a practicle sense in our daily lives in this mode of being.

Also for something to be perfect, it must be 1 thing, and the only thing, or it must include all things and exclude no thing.

Sincerely,
That which is, and has no choice but to be.
