    Well, there are steps on the way to the end, right?

    No doubt.
    The question is all about figuring out where you want to go, and then how to get there.
    There are many roads from birth to death, many forks and junctions that bring us to cross paths with others.
    If we're lucky we meet like-minded individuals and share experiences and possibly even philosophies and ideas with them.
    Having a dream is good. Sharing a dream is better.
    What life "means" varies from person to person so there is no universal answer.
    The only truth about life (for me anyway) is that it ends, so make the best of it while you can.

    So, you think Socrates was in error, that the unexamined life is as worthy as the examined life?

    Worthy? You're in the wrong thread for that question HE.

    Exhibiting much hubris arguing with a PhD but isn't the phrase: the unexamined isn't worth living?
    There is nothing in the barbarian's post that indicates examination. There is planning and execution but no feedback loop indicated.

    Found an amusing but somewhat apt link for the discussion...

    Not sure if it's the meaning, but it's pretty close to the general outcome of life.

    Meaning Redux

    Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place.Matthew 24:34 NASB

    Meaning that people that lived in his age wouldnt die? Meaning that people who are his friends? Hard to get...
