What do you personally think the meaning of life is, if there is one?

It's pronounced like "going to death" in Japaneese, so do you mean the meaning of life is to die?

The number 23 is a discordianism reference, a neo-nazi symbol, or the name of a recent film starring Jim Carrey. I can’t decide which.

Does anyone have a real opinion about the topic or is everyone just going to post random numbers?

To find your own.

There is no universal meaning.

Meaning, IMO, is merely a word. Therefore, life can have none. Any meanings one attaches to existence comes from one's own thoughts or from one's understandings of what other persons (including prophets, messiahs, and gurus) have said.

Cheers,

Meaning is a very tricky word. It can refer to how something fits into a system. Since life definitely exists its meaning probably indicates one of the possibilities of how basic elements can combine.

42 is the answer to the universe, not the meaning of life.
