What is the meaning of life?
I’m not sure there is a “meaning.” “Life” began with a microscopic organism somewhere in the water, and the feature we know as “life” has been evolving ever since. Those who share this have the ability to reproduce themselves, although this is shared by objects not considered to be life, with a border line of, say, viruses, which are simply chemical compounds that must use their hosts to achieve “life” abilities. It’s we humans who need “meaning.”
