    Not really "The Meaning of Life", but a great dialog none the less.

    That isn`t grim. It only seems grim if you do not know at all what he is talking about.

    Seems like a sensible man to me and it also highlights the reason why people turn to religion .. fear of death. It really is that simple. Don`t even try to deny it.

    I think that sounds a lot like nihilism: the belief that not a damn thing matters, good or bad. Although the idea of creating a purpose of our own is unique.

    Who cares about the meaning of life? Just try to enjoy it from time to time, because who knows how long it will last?

    "Who cares about the meaning of life? Just try to enjoy it from time to time, because who knows how long it will last?"

    That`s the spirit! Let the next gen deal with our good times. Nothing lasts forever. Drive it into the dirt like it meant nothing to anybody.

    BTW, Kubrick was an audio/visual genius. It would be great if he was around making art. He is a rare human treasure.

    Grim? I`d say "honest".

    It`s easier to believe that an undetectable higher power has a purpose for us, but that`s just a reassuring story.

    why does life have to have a higher purpose. For me, life`s purpose is simply to enjoy myself and experience as much of the world as possible...

    Kubrick is an existentialist? That explains a lot.
