What is the meaning of life ?
The dictionary definition of life: “Life – the quality that distinguishes living organisms from dead organisms and intimate matter, manifested in functions such as metabolism, growth reproduction, and response to stimuli.”
A few philosophers and scientists named Descartes, Hume, Socrates, Galileo, and Albert Einstein all have something in common: they all are curious! So I personally think that the meaning of life to these people is being curious.
Everybody is curious. No matter if your question has to do with only one subject! Questions could be “Why does the Earth move?” or “Is my existence true?” There are a lot of questions in the world so the meaning of life to philosophers and other people is curiosity!!
