    My Philosophy of Life

    Why is it so terrifying that life doesn't come pre-packaged with "meaning"? Usually, this idea assumes that we are all part of a divine, ongoing plan and that's why our lives have purpose. So for those who think life is "meaningful", what/who we are is understood only in terms of a larger...
