THE MEANING OF LIFE - I WAS WRONG!





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 bitterness our we can Zen out and play to the beauty in every minute - try to make the journey as pleasant as possible.  

Because in the end it’s bugger-all.

  1. There are some who believe that our lives are all mapped out due to destiny and higher powers. You speak of the chaos theory. I like to think we almost always have choice and it is up to us to learn through trial and error how to choose so that we evolve into a better person by the time we're all done. Or maybe it all just comes down to the salmon mousse. -Jenn

  3. Great post. Now I will worry about this all day. Only if we try to make sense of the very big picture do we go mad. We must narrow it down to our own lives. Even then, if we think too much we become lost.

COMMENT: Ben Franklin said, "I imagine a man must have a good deal of vanity who believes, and a good deal of boldness who affirms, that all doctrines he holds are true, and all he rejects are false."
