    That's one scenario where it's pretty damn significant.
    When one asks for the meaning of something, one asks for that which makes something possible.

    And temporality (to have a beginning and an end) makes Being possible.

    Sensory information dwells in the realm of facts, and thus, is insignificant, and thus, is not meaningful.

    Ok, breathing from an oxygen tank because of emphysema is not meaningful.

    I used to think it was, but then Heidegger cconvinced me otherwise.

    speak for yourself

    I'd rather die than live a life with no more sensory input

    I am very aware that humans are just another animal, and like all animals I am attached to the earth and the things it offers and the wonders it contains. no lying to myself that I'm superior

    Preach! I am totally the same. Give me all the sensations!

    The ways in which we exist are meaningful, so having to breath from an oxygen tank because of emphysema is meaningful.

    Sensory data, is just that, data, and is not meaningful in and of itself.

    It's worth repeating.

    YOU do NOT decide what is meaningful or not. The individual gets to decide what is meaningful to them.

    YES!

    also, I don't need to lie to myself about my level of sophistication and importance in order to live... but hey, it's your life that you've got to get through

    YOU are NOT understanding me. Why don't you read my posts harder? (Oh wait, you're ignoring me, right?).
