The Tao was asked about the meaning of life. Thus he spoke:
“Your life is floating around in a multi-dimensional time-space-consciousness continuum. When you were born, the boundary conditions were set along the axis of time. But, space and consciousness dimensions are left unbounded, and for you to explore. That, which you explore, will be the meaning of your life.”
