    The Meaning of Life in 10 words or less

    The universe exists so that we can measure it.

    (measure synonymous with observe)

    Existence is being. Being is change. The universe exists for change.

    Ification is the process of being. Reification is changing to another being. Deification is making something holy (by removing it's being).

    The meaning of life is to find meaning in life.
    " If you are on the wrong road progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on.” ---C. S. Lewis

    We measure (observe) reality into existence.

    Observation is just the conversion of a wave (imaginary) to a particle (real).

    The universe began when nothing looked in the mirror and saw my reflection. 'Course right became left so some things didn't turn out right.

    “Democracy is also a form of worship. It is the worship of Jackals by Jackasses. It is the theory that the common people know what they want, and deserve to get it good and hard.”
    H.L. Mencken

    "The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary."
    H. L. Mencken
