Is the Meaning of Life Subjective or Objective?

Meaning in life has long been recognised as a central dilemma for human life. Psychology of human function, whilst acknowledging there is no consensus definition for the construct. There is a argument for the importance, leading on to the meaning, in life, based upon conventions in acculturations used as subjective judgmental processes.

We then have a strong argument from observations and experiences, that positive mood and meaning in life are born out of the phenomenology of meaning in life. This in turn, creates conditions for the objective study of topics usually regarded as subjective: consciousness and the content of conscious experiences such as judgements, perceptions, and emotions.

Then there’s the argument that everything is meaningless. Words have meanings yet are merely conventions. The word ‘water’ isn’t wet, but it identifies the object in reality. Like trying to determine the beauty of the stars in the sky. There is no beauty. They just exist. They are objects that are subject to simply existing.

So my conclusion to the question of the meaning of life being objective or subjective, is that it is neither.

The meaning of life is simply…..to EXIST!!!
