Answer to "The meaning of life"

I truly believe that I have figured out the meaning of life. It's really so simple.

The meaning of life is simply to Live, to be alive. That's it! Our exsistence alone is the meaning of life. Everything else is just a benefit or a distraction.

The meaning of life can be summed up, easily observed and witnessed all throughout nature. The more simple forms of life (when compared to interactions such as human to human, not DNA) especially show us this is true, in my opinion.

Take a flower for example. What is the purpose of life of a flower? Is its only purpose to simply act as a servant to other life forms? I say no, but my explanation of this will sound insane to those of you who don't already understand what I'm saying here. If you don't understand I politely suggest you open your mind. I acquired it first through years of time in nature,especially through the mountains and hunting. And then formed a deeper understanding of my life and other life through exposure to Taoist philosophy.

I'm not claiming that this is the only way to find it, find it on your own terms.

Anyway, I do realize that you can argue yes to my question about the flower and its purpose. But do you really believe the meaning of life is only to support other life? There's nothing in it for us beyond that?

I also realize that we all play a part willingly or not in the existence of other life forms, even after we die. But, I assure you, the true meaning of life is simply to live and hopefully enjoy it while you are here.

Because it's "such a long long time to be gone and a short time to be there".
