The idea of a "meaning of life" seems like a slippery slope. It implies that your life needs some purpose or point. Which implies that if you're just sitting on a rock breathing, you're not living because you're not generating some purpose or meaning. Inevitably, this purpose is assumed to come from a job or career. What if "meaning of life" may just be a conceptual tool to reinforce capitalist thinking by minimizing the inherent value of just BEING without some observable value?
