>I just realized life isn't all that meaningful
Let's leave humans out of it for the moment.
Do you think the life of (say) ants is meaningful?
They do their anty thing.
Is that where the meaning is?
(I was reading that if (say) a cow was to try to waken from the prison of self by following the eightfold path, we might think the cow had made a bad bet.)
Is there the idea that life should have some meaning beyond our response to it?
