The Meaning of Life – Sunday Sacrilege
Insights from the great Joseph Campbell, mythologist, best known for his work in comparative mythology and comparative religion, author of The Power of Myth, The Inner Secrets of Outer Space, and The Hero with a Thousand Faces amongst many others. His work was the basis for the structure of George Lucas’s Star Wars and, for his sins, subsequently for most of today’s Hollywood movies.
Also from Joseph Campbell:
Life is like arriving late for a movie having to figure out what was going on without bothering everybody with a lot of questions and then being unexpectedly called away before you find out how it ends.
Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning.
