The Answer to Life, the Universe and Everything

June 28th, 2012

An article on the blog “Shake Off the Grind“, titled “You Only Live Once so Make it Meaningful“,  asks the questions below. Here are my answers:

  1. Who am I:

    A semi-aware bundle of perceptions, habits, and quirks. My personality is simply the structure of the relationships between the cells in my brain. You could reprogram them with an axe, or a scalpel preferably.

  2. How and where do I find happiness?

    In enjoying the experiences of life with loved ones. In curiosity and discovery. In making beautiful things. In making others feel/be better.

  3. What should I do with my life?

    Use it to explore life and play as much as possible.

  4. How can I avoid making the wrong choices in the major areas of my life?

    There are no wrong choices. “There is nothing good or bad except thinking makes it so.” All choices lead to blessings eventually.

  5. Where do I belong?

    I don’t, and never will, which makes me uniquely qualified for number 3 on this list.

  6. What is the point of all my striving?

    There isn’t any, so I strive not to strive, and wear an irony deflector.

  7. What will happen to me after I die?

    My body will decay, and my friends and family will remember me. If there anything else, I’ll be surprised and relieved.

  8. What would make my life more meaningful and significant?

    Making things others love to experience. Create memories for them.
