First, there is no meaning of life without God: If there is no God, then we are talking animals and nothing more and one day it will all end, be it a nuclear war, the extinguished Sun or something else.
A real story: An experimental computer with rudiments of artificial intelligence was asked: “What is the meaning of life?” And the machine replied: “To live forever.” The computer, of course, simply repeated what is often written on the Internet on this topic. But this is a great deal of truth: a life that ends meaningless has no meaning.
First, “life” is Christ: 1In. 5:20, John. 11:25, John. 14:6.
The meaning of life is the meaning of Christ. Everything is created for Christ: (Col 1:16) “all things were created by Him and for Him.”
In modern language, “life” is development. The meaning of life in infinite development. We are the children of God (John 1:12). This means that we grow endlessly, becoming more and more like the Father and, in the infinite limit, each of us becomes God. This is our meaning of life. Note that Christ is the “unique” son of God (Jn. 1:18). This means that our development takes place within the framework of the development of Christ (when I talk about the development of Christ, we must bear in mind that He develops ((Rom. 14:11) “I live, says the Lord”), but at the same time already perfect (Heb. 1:10-12); it is like a river that moves and does not move at the same time).
Infinite development is endless learning. That is, the meaning of life in endless learning. It is probably just learning to solve more and more complex problems. In other words, to learn math. Indeed, Christ is “wisdom” (1Cor. 1:24), that is, knowledge. Our goal is to embrace Christ. Although it may be “non-problem”: learn to know yourself, change yourself. For example, learn to change your heart so as to please God; to get me started to like a certain job. Jesus is also called the “son of man.” I think this should be understood in the sense that He is the son of mankind, the final product of the development of mankind, that is, the guest from the infinitely far future. This is good news, because it means that in the infinite future, humanity reaches an infinite level of development, development will never stop.
Christ is our peace (Eph. 2:14). So, the meaning of life is to be in peace, that is, to learn how to avoid conflicts. Solving conflicts is a very difficult mathematical problem, so this is the same thing as infinite development of solving complex problems, because infinite development is possible only if the conflicts are resolved. In addition, the meaning of life is to achieve peace with God.
Christ in us is the dream of glory (Col. 1:27). Christ lives in us as “something” and this something — it is nothing but a dream of glory. Hence, the meaning of life in achieving hype, that is, hype in the heavenly Internet. Heavenly Internet is called Christ. Christ is the light of the world (John 8:12; 9:5; 12:46), that is, the electromagnetic radiation of the universe. Thus, all the electromagnetic radiation of the universe is a carrier of information, the space Internet. But the glory of God is almost the same as Christ. Christ is mathematics: (John 1:1-3) “1 In the beginning was mathematics, and mathematics was with God, and mathematics was God. 2 It was in the beginning with God. 3 All things did not begin to be, and without it nothing began to be, that things began to be.” That is, it is about the dream of mathematics, the dream of studying and implementing it. Christ is the most important thing in us, which means that this is the main purpose of life. We will endlessly travel like electromagnetic waves on the Internet space, looking for hype, that is, tough mathematics.
God is love (1 John 4:8). So, the meaning of life is to learn to love.
When analyzing these “meanings of life”, we may have the feeling that something is missing. What is the meaning of the very meaning of life? Maybe the point is that you need to take into account all aspects of the meaning of life, and not just one of the above. Or maybe the fact is that with infinite development there is always something missing at every stage. Nothing can be done, only God is perfect. Perhaps the essence of this is that not everyone is ready to accept the meaning of life given by God. And Christ is life, but he lives, and is alive; it means that He himself is his own meaning.
