My God! It's Full of Stars!

One common thread uniting every person that has ever lived is our search for meaning. Whether we find it or not is debatable of course and what we do with it is often lacking.

For me the image below defines much of the meaning I find. It's why my chosen background is a Deep Field Hubble image. It's why this blog is called Virtual Cortex. The connections between Hinduism & Quantum are well-explored in Fritjof Capra's The Tao of Physics. To me, that's the direction 'the truth' lies in. And it excites 'the hell' out of me. No pun or irony intended. It literally keeps me smiling and positive and keeps 'the abyss' that human psychology and behavior can sink into at bay.

Have you found meaning? Would love to hear your thoughts.


  1. To me, the meaning of life is for the universe, of which are as one with, to know itself.

  2. Totally agree Chris. And that makes Aristotle's 'Know Thyself' even more profound eh?

  3. To me the meaning of life is to have fun. Because if you get to the point where you are having fun it means you have mastered enigmas and traumas that life brings. You have to work hard in life at having fun and enjoying yourself because the shit times happen without you doing anything at all! :)

    One event that has given meaning to my life is is having met and getting to know Al.
