I don’t believe in any overreaching, defining entity. A god named God or Science with an initial capital. The large Hadron Collider will never provide a meaning of life or, make that, The Meaning of Life. We’re just inside a meaningless universe—without an initial capital.
So given the absence of meaning and in particular a caring god named God, we should, I believe, take care of each other. We are the huddled masses. Yearning for meaning.
I would like to be able to say that being kind gives life meaning, but I don’t believe that to be True. Rather, it’s the absence of meaning that simply requires kindness.
I attempt to live that way.
