Alan Watts pointed out that "meaning" is a linguistic construct and really should only be applied to language, namely words. I would say that the truest, clearest answer to "what is the meaning of life?" is "life is its own meaning." Just as the meaning of a flower is the flower itself - it is its own meaning.

I fear I reveal my mystical-artistic bias here.


By the way, this chapter reminded me of the opening scene of Stardust Memories, which is probably my second favorite Woody Allen movie after Annie Hall.
