THE MEANING OF LIFE;
I WAS WRONG;
IT’S NOT THE HOKEY POKEY
I have always said that the Chaos Theory described life, and that everything is chance. I have used the analogy of the Hokey Pokey; but in retrospect the Hokey Pokey is choreographed: you put your left foot out, you put your left foot in, you put your left foot out and you shake it all about…
After 4 a.m. consideration it is obvious to me that life is a play without a plot. All the actors are improvising, and every actor believes he or she is the star. New actors show up while other actors disappear, but the show goes on. The script is babble and the movement senseless.
Does that mean that our life is worthless? On a personal level, of course not: we come on stage and then we exit, but the journey between is up to us. We can play out angry and bitter or we can Zen out and play to the beauty in every minute and try to make the journey as pleasant as possible.
Because in the end it’s bugger-all.
