What is the meaning of life? Is there a scientific answer to this question?
There is no scientific answer to that. We live to make the world a better place and help each other.
Love. Not currently.
According to the biologists Francisco Varela and Humberto Maturana, the meaning of life can only be derived from the individual perspective of a single living entity. We don't have a purpose but we share a sense of what it is to experience reality.
Life is just what you make out of it.
From a purely biological standpoint, the meaning of life is to produce more life.
However, reproduction is not the only thing that can give a life meaning, and what is meaningful to one person may not be meaningful to another. Since what gives a life meaning is different for everybody, there's really no one thing that science can identify as being the meaning of life for all individuals.
Science is wonderful, but it has limitations.
|The purpose of life is to become more conscious.
So why have we not accomplished this? Human nature stands in the way; it is difficult to change.
Violent emotions, selfish habits, negative outlook, addictions, aggressive personalities, faulty mental processes have created a "lowest-common-denominator" behavioral standard. Often, we exhibit negative behavior out of frustration, because we feel like "cogs in a machine." In order to survive the changing conditions of overcrowding and diminishing resources, we can and must eliminate the negative aspects of a nature that makes us feel like cogs in a machine.
The reason human nature varies so greatly among individuals is because nature is subordinate to the individual's current state of consciousness. The higher the state of consciousness of the individual, the nobler his nature. Unfortunately, the aggregate state of human nature at the present time has created a world of financial collapse, war, greed, illness, obesity, addiction, wide-scale sexual slavery, racial hatred.
So how do we change human nature? We donít. We run an ďend runĒ around it; we change our state of being, our consciousness. How do we do this? By raising Kundalini in a safe, permanent fashion. How does this work? My books detail the process, but the upshot is Kundalini produces an entirely new being. Itís an active process. You canít pray for it to happen; you canít do it by reading philosophy, by undergoing psychoanalysis, or becoming a scientist, lawyer or doctor. You have to involve the whole being. Master three powerful meditation techniques: diaphragmatic deep breathing, control of heart rate, the backward-flowing method and youíre there, standing at the threshold of a new being.
This dormant mechanism in our beings allows us to realize our full potential. Kundalini is the motivating catalyst behind the transcendent experience. It's the key to our changing our state of consciousness. How? Kundalini stimulates neuroplastic activity in the brain and, as a consequence, changes our very Being. All our behavioral aberrations vanish. We are no longer cogs in the machine.
You have to invent your own meaning for you own life by the method of trial and error...
Quite honestly, I think the question is ridiculous. It's like asking "what is the meaning of potatoes" or "what is the meaning of blue." There are, nonetheless, lots and lots of scientific answers to this question. Most of those answers consist of further questions (which is how it should be). We can't help being curious, and that's fine. It's when we think we've found "the" answer that we get into trouble... except for 42. Forty-two was a really good answer. Of course, the late, great Douglas Adams, whose answer it was, also noted that it's the question, not the answer, that no one has yet figured out.
It is based on each human's view. No, there is no common answer.
