    For the Christian like myself it is found in the Westminster Catechism. http://www.opc.org/lc.html

    Q. 1. What is the chief and highest end of man?
    A. Man's chief and highest end is to glorify God, and fully to enjoy him forever.

    That must be the most unusual flashmob ever. Pretty cool.

    Apparently the advertising for banks is getting creative in Catalonia.

    I was raised in a spirit like that. It didn't satisfy my philosophical, ethical and esthetical needs. I gradually started to realize that what can't be known can never be known. (That does not include what science is able to uncover to us, of course). And that trying to 'capture' the unknown is removing its beauty and profoundness. It degrades the unknown ('god') to an imperfect image of itself. That thought 'unprisoned' me.
    For me, the meaning of life is what people (sometimes) are able to make of it, it is the love of children for their parents and vice versa, it is altruism etc. And most of all (for me personally): good music, like the music written by The Man: Ludwig Van.
