>Friends, what I am about to post here could IMO change your life and open up a new undertanding about why you were born.


Lou, I'd be interested in *any* understanding as to why I was born.

On the meaning of life front there is (what I assume to be) nihilism
"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury
Signifying nothing."
Macbeth (Act V, Scene V)

and (not nihilism as I understand it)
"Thou hast seen a farmer's dog bark at a beggar?
And the creature run from the cur? There thou mid'st behold
The great image of authority:
A dog's obeyed in office.
Through tatter'd clothes small vices do appear;
Robes and fur gowns hide all. Plate sin with gold,
And the strong lance of justice hurtless breaks;
Arm it in rags, a pygmy's straw doth pierce it.
None does offend, I say, none."
King Lear, Act IV, Scene VI.
