    Life has no meaning anyway, or it least has no meaning that can be pointedly defined assofar.

    As the world evolves so does humanity, things change and time causes meaning to gradually shed itself further from its starting point until it finally becomes so miniscule as to practically become insignificant. In 100000 years, assuming all goes 'well' and the earth continues to revolve around the sun, night turns to day, the human race develops at the same rate that it has now, memory, and therefore meaning, even if transcribed and salvaged in some sort of way, will have to make due-to accomodate everything that has added itself to it sense then, so maybe while meaning could develop as the sum of the additional parts, in the sense of human individual significance, I don't believe it to be distinguisable. No matter if one lives forever or not.

    Unless it is being talked about as meaning to the person and not the persons meaning to the world, then I guess intensity in knowing that what what you have is all that you will ever get, would cause you to build up the significance of it instead of spreading it out, I dunno.

    The significance (meaning) of Being lies in the recognition (understanding) of the possibility of the impossibility of Being (Death).

    That means that the meaning of life (Being) lies in the many particular ways we can be, or by asking the question "What does it mean to be?"

    That means that the meaning of life (Being) lies in the many particular ways we can be and by asking the question "What does it mean to be?".. The answer is found in that question.
    Maybe philosophically, meaning can be derived from what we are as opposed to what we do, can transcend the dimension of inevitable extinguishment, but it would seem almost as if it were a very personal and romantic thing and I would suspect that it would be independant from human known choicedon't exactly know how to put this, maybe I'll just steal a fight between determinism of meaning and free will.

    Avoiding the answer "mine" while subtly implying an enlightened perspective. Neat.

    Speaking for myself, I don't prescribe much value to my existence to begin with. How much am I cheapening it by extending it a little longer?

    No. I'm not afraid of death or the end. It happens to everyone. It's unavoidable. And I feel like I have no regrets to feel bad about if I were to die right this second. I lived an eventful life for the short amount of years I have been on this planet, and seen and done everything I can to fill the empty spaces.

    So No, I dont fear death. "Death is but the next great adventure." Albus Dumbledore.
    "Advance, and never halt, for advancing is perfection. Advance and do not fear the thorns in the path, for they draw only corrupt blood."

    Yes, let's just ignore the person who is thinking critically and outside the box.

    Drop the snide know-it-all "I'm so much better and more enlightened than all of you troglodyte peons" attitude and people might actually listen more.
