What is the meaning of life?

Life has no inherent meaning.  It is a process like fire, or a river, or thought.  When that process is complete , there is only meaningless refuse.  It is like asking “Is this statement false?”.

Life has meaning only if we live for meaning.  Few do.  We can try to shape our refuse into something worthwhile, at least in our fancy, by calling it accomplishment.  Such as a changed environment or a beneficial philosophy.  We know processes by their refuse.  Fire leaves ashes, or a cleansed environment.  A river leaves flooded devastation, or the Grand Canyon.  Thought generated this statement, which may be false.

The meaning of life may be false.
