"I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terribly by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.” - Umberto ECo Showing how life is a very mysterious concept. That becomes only what we perceive it as.

People believe life has an actual purpose so it becomes rough when they’re searching for something that does not exist. So, one should accept that Life truly has no meaning other than the one you give it.

The thought of life having a set meaning for us is a very common idea.

"Religion is the sigh of the oppressed creature, the heart of a heartless world, and the soul of soulless conditions. It is the opium of the people" - Karl Marx

Religion is a made up idea to give hope of life having actual meaning. Offering something to follow and not be lost trying to create their own.

“Modern science is the second cause of the current crisis of meaning. Scientists tell us that existence, which emerged from a random interplay of chemicals and gases, does have meaning, but it’s of a rather bleak, relentless and narrow sort: for humans – as for all other living things (like amoeba) – the meaning of life is survival and the propagation of one’s genetic material.” - (Thebookoflife.org)

This being one way to go about life. One of multiple claims on the purpose of the world.

There is no meaning in life. Everything that happens just does. No reason behind it all.

"I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world.” - The Stranger

Thus, demonstrating how if the world is insignificant then it must have no purpose.

"Human life seems like a useless, meaningless treadmill. It is like a huge industrial complex for producing oil, but all of the oil is needed to keep the machines running!” - James Park

Therefore, illustrating everything in the world is meaningless and it leads up to nothing.

Religion and many other theories are way people state that life has its own meaning. Not one we give it but one that has already been established.

“theism. Theists believe God created the universe and that God had a purpose in doing so. Theists also hold the view that humans find their meaning and purpose for life in God's purpose in creating.” Showing us the purpose of some religion." - Wikipedia

Demonstrating how the belief is that god has given us purpose already rather than us having our own.

Coming to reality, religion and other theories are just how they sound. Hopes and theories, but cannot be proven to be true.

With life having no meaning people look to religion and other ways for hope and something to live for, but the only true purpose is one that is created by oneself.

Create your own meaning. Live up to what you believe. you should not go an entire lifetime following something another person wants you to live for. Because you might end up living for someone else just for it to end up being nothing more than a simple theory.
