The meaning of life

It is the eternal human pondering. What is the meaning of life? Why are we here, who or what are we?

Many say it is to serve whatever deity it is that they worship. Others say it is to make more babies. Still others believe it is the journey that matters, what you do with your life, and how you improve upon yourself and others.

I have struggled with this question for many many years. What is the meaning of life? More importantly, what is the meaning of life to me?

I like children but I don't know if I'll ever have any. If the meaning of life was to have children, then there are many who go unfulfilled by choice or by design.

I don't believe in any deities, and will not serve one. The idea that the meaning is only to serve a god who doesn't make his presence known to all so there is no question is an absurd one, in my eyes.

It wasn't until today, watching my dog play in the park that it hit me, like a load of manure.

When she squatted to defecate for her third time that day, I looked at her and said "Is that what you're all about, dog?"

That's IT! That explains everything about the meaning of life! ALL LIFE CREATES WASTE! Gods aren't proven, only females have children, but everybody poops!

That is the one thing that is common to everything. Even plants, by way of respiration, take in nutrients and expend waste.

There you have it then. We exist to process nutrients and the excretion of waste. It's the one thing that's mutually exclusive to any and ALL forms of life, from simple bacteria and protozoa all the way to blue whales and men.

Boy am I glad I came to this realization, because now I know I'm successful in life.

Successful at least once a day, sometimes twice!
