So what are we here for? Your modern neo-Darwinist is perfectly certain—for no reason. That just doesn’t cut it for me. I mean, it may be true, but it doesn’t help me get through Thursday. I prefer this take by the composer Aaron Copland (simply replace the word "music" with the word "life"): "The whole problem can be stated quite simply by asking, ‘Is there a meaning to music?’ My answer would be, ‘Yes.’ And ‘Can you state in so many words what the meaning is?’ My answer to that would be, ‘No.’" I don’t know the meaning of things any more than Copland knew the meaning of music. But it’s certainly a lot of fun speculating about it. Jokes and laughter enrich and stimulate the journey.
