Origin: How did it all start?
Meaning: Why are we here? Why is anything here?
Morality: Do right and wrong exist? If so, what standard should we use?
Destiny: How does it all end? Is there afterlife?
Origin: There was no beginning. The Membrane in which we exist, is infinite.
Meaning: Meaning comes on a personal level, meaning gives importance to the individual. All in all, we don't matter, nothing really does. It just is.
Morality: Morality is also personal. It leads to ethics, which is a set of morals which most of society has agreed upon. This is subject to change, because it is based on survival. As a societies needs change, their ethics may change, as well.
Desitiny: By saying "it all" I assume you mean humanity because of your second question: "Is there an afterlife." I do not believe anything truly ends, our bodies will just be recirculated. This is one basic example. As for, is there an afterlife, in a sense, I would say yes. We live on based on the effects we have caused in our physical world and through memory. This is a fleeting afterlife, one human can only do so much to be remembered. As for a spiritual context, I cannot say.
