Emanuele Marcuccio asks: What is the meaning of life?

Hello Emanuele, thank you very much for your question.

I never understood why this question is so important to everyone. Do people wonder about the purpose of life? A prime directive to guide them? Or are they looking for meaning in things that seem too straightforward? What does this tree mean? What do pumpkins mean? What do roads mean? What does school mean? What does love mean? What does war mean?
I honestly do not understand the question. I don’t really understand the word meaning. As if objects behave as aliases, insignificant by themselves, to guide you to a bigger mental platform.

I think meaning is speculation more than anything else.
