the other 2 answers are:

1: the evolutionary meaning.
you don't live to die but to survive. the point of life is to evade death as long as possible. it is still the inevitable end result, but the meaning of all life, from bacteria to us, is to avoid it, not seek it.

2: the deeper meaning (it's a pun)
the purpose of life is to maintain the heavenly equilibrium for our cellular overlords. every action we take from working for that roof or higher quality food, eating, sleeping, fighting, running, is all meant to keep our inner environment perfect for our cells. perfect temp, perfect acidity, perfect chemical mixes, and always bathed in glorious nutrients.

pain: all your feeling is the death of cells
hunger: your cells sense a lack of nutrients around them
sleep: build up of toxic chemicals that will harm your cells and need to be cleaned out.

I actually have 3 answers to this question.

the answer I gave yesterday was humanistic based (not official, this is an original, all mine classifications and conclusions as far as I know), and the reason why... 1) entering the history books is a form of immortality, 2) what else will you do? let me elaborate on that second one.

people sometimes work endlessly, miss out on so much happiness, and then die, sometimes prematurely without even reaping the fruits of their labor. seems pointless.

on the other hand you have people who enjoy leisure and relaxing most of their off time. are they happy? atm yes, but when they look back at years on the couch or in a bar, is there any fulfillment or satisfaction? rarely. the grass is always greener on the other side, once you realize this ask yourself how would you like to live, then look to the positives of that style, the accomplishments or the leisure (or a balanced mix) and embrace it.

Very classy thereal. That comment is enough to describe most of who you are.

Nemiroff, well that's true. You can give meaning to your life. But i guess originally life has no meaning. You just live to die. But if humans can change the world by their actions, Why would a human want to change the world? He's been put here whitout any choice and he's forced to participate in society and make the world a better place. Why wouldnt the human just care about his life, make sure he'll live it happily then die in peace whitout making any significant change in the world?

Yes, for atheists life has no meaning thats why theyre barbaric goatf***ers that eat their mothers.

you can accomplish a purpose greater than yourself and affect the lives of countless people for millennia or forever. that's far from nothing, and it's entirely your choice, based on your effort, and your ability.

no need for a puppet master thank you very much.

Basically humans life is just a hazard of nature and the universe. We are born, we live a fraction of time (compared to the universe's time scale) then we die. Its just form changing matter.

When we die, a new life begins because our matter is used to feed or devellop other forms of life. By death, we create life, and we provoke death around us in order to live.
