There is no meaning to life

Chat about anything your heart desires here, just be civil. Factual or scientific questions about philosophy go here (e.g. "When was Socrates born?"), and so most homework help questions belong here. Note, posts in the off-topic section will not increase new members post counts. This includes the introductions and feedback sections.

On this matter, wittgenstein has the proper insight: it is not whether life has meaning, for this is clearly the case. The question is, does that meaning have meaning? Goes to metavalue, absolute rather than contingent "meaning".
