January 2016 Service:

Post by tim »

Our service on January 3rd considered the question of "The Meaning of Life."

What things "mean" can mean a variety of things. Sometimes what things mean depend on the people considering what they may mean. Sometimes even when artists, writers and composers mean something by what they produce it may mean something else to those who consider their works and who is to say what such things REALLY mean when people don't agree?

Considering what life means involves all of these problems and more. We watched and considered a clip from the movie version of "The Hitchhikers' Guide to the Universe" about the massive computer that took many years to conclude that the meaning of everything is "42."

We concluded, with Aristotle, that everyone wants happiness, though what brings happiness is the bigger question.
