On "meaning"

Post by Tony.Williams » Thu Dec 28, 2017 12:27 pm

I like this one, from Modesitt's Solar Express, an SF novel:
"Don't we all want some meaning in the universe? Meaning that transcends mechanics?" Tavoian snorted. He doubted that the universe had meaning. Structure, but not meaning. People had to create meaning. Whether it's there or not. Which continued to be the problem with true believers of every kind.
