so deep you'll need your floaties.

You know what? Shit happens. There is no reason for it, it just happens in the same way life happens, and to quote John Lennon, life happens when you're busy making other plans. It also happens when you're widdling your thumbs and wondering wtf it's all about. You don't need to plan for it for it to happen. Whatever it is you're doing, whatever that is, is the answer to the meaning of life.

Live it kids. Breathe in and out. Repeat.

I really don't think there is any meaning that's deeper than just living it. Unlike others though, I find that simplicity as liberating as it is impressive, and as impressive sas it is comforting. We don't need to do anything or be anyone other than who we are, doing what we do, to be a part of the Big Picture and involved in the Grand Scheme. I mean, how cool is that? Whatever we do we're a part of something bigger than ourselves, and that bigger thing only exists because of ourselves.

If one of you hadn't been born, or none of you, or me even, for that matter, the universe would be different. Because you exist, you have impact on this world. Because you decided to turn right today, instead of left, you changed the world. You changed the world simply because you exist.

Our lives are never inconsequential because we are never inconsequential. Every single one of us makes up the whole that is the Big Picture. It there wasn't us, there wouldn't be it.

And that's your meaning.
