Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson answers the question “What is the meaning of life” asked by a 6 year old child at the Wilbur Theatre Boston on January 2015
I think people ask that question on the assumption that meaning is something you can look for and then,I found it. Here’s the meaning. And it doesn’t consider the possibility that meaning is something you create, you manufacture it for yourself and for others.
So when I think of meaning’ in life, I ask, did I learn something today that I didn’t know yesterday, bringing me a little closer to knowing all that can be known in the universe? If I live a day and I don’t know a little more than I did the day before, I think I wasted that day. To think brings you closer to nature. To learn how things work gives you power to influence events. Gives you power to help people who may need it power to help yourselves to shape a trajectory.
So when I think of what is the meaning of life, to me that’s not an eternal, unanswerable question to me that is in arm’s reach of me everyday.
