Hi Gavin,

>How about this- there is absolutely no meaning in life at all.

This expresses to me what I have just learned: There is no knowledge in
information. This is why I also doubt that by reading the same books
(information) one would get the same frame of reference (knowledge).

>Just the
>meaning we give it through our rituals , religions, ideals, hopes,
>aspirations, wishes, longings, desires, expectations.

Yes, the place where knowledge resides. I value such meaning quite highly,
your 'just' tells me that you value it quite little, right? Your use of
'just' and 'only' has already puzzled me in the past. Then I hear you
(yes, Gavin, I know, this is what I do, nothing you did), well I hear you
saying something like: "There is nothing beyond all, and because this
'nothing' is so unimaginable big, this 'all' is so little, only a 'just'."

In another context you recently wrote something like: "It is not
interesting, it is happening right under your nose." I wonder why what is
happening under my nose should not be interesting. I personally can think
of nothing more interesting than what is happening right under my nose,
although it can be quite confusing indeed.

Liebe Gruesse,
