      We're all just a random collection of atoms and chemicals, with random, uncontrollable synapses firing and causing us to do things of no free will. Free will is an illusion, and death is the end.

      The meaning of life is hopelessness.

            Yes, but for most people these are the popular ones. With Terminator 2 as free will and Terminator 3 as fate. We tend to look at everything as extremes like with politics (right or left) when in reality most people fall in between. What are the other options? And Do we get to choose?

    I actually know the answer. Thought about posting it in a hub. But Google would just ignore it. So I wont.

    There is no universal meaning of life.  Each of us chooses our own meaning for our own life.  Most are afraid to create their own meaning, so they let themselves be guided by other people, most often under the guise of religion, and fool themselves into believing they are better for it.
