When I was researching the material that would eventually become the basis of my book, The Hidden Truth: A logical path through compelling evidence to discover the nature of reality and the meaning of life, it became clear to me that life certainly has purpose and meaning. And that purpose and meaning is well beyond esoteric and intangible concepts such as “to love God” or simply to test our strength in belief in [fill in any religion]. We are born on this Earth to serve a purpose and experience some aspect of life, though it may take decades – if ever – for the average human to come to identify their own purpose in life. And still that purpose may not even be defined well enough for the meaning to be apparent to us (i.e. our normal waking conscious self) from our Earth-bound perspective. Rather, our purpose in life was defined by our self and for our self before life ever began.

This likely sounds like a religious, faith-based statement, but I would like to argue that the statement is based on some rather rigorous, scientific evidence. The precept for understanding the meaning of life requires first an understanding of the nature of reality. This is because there is more to reality than meets the eye. For example, Einstein’s Theory of Relativity, and conclusions of the Space-Time Continuum led scientists to an early realization that life in a three-dimensional world was only an impression of reality from a larger four-dimensional description of space-time. An odd scientific conclusion of the four-dimensional space-time continuum was that all time continued to exist in a single point, Now, and thus humanity experienced only an impression of forward time progression by the movement of conscious experience through the continuum. Some sources quoted in my book noted this was required in order for humans to be able to gain experience through cause and effect, which is attributed to an illusion of the forward progression of time. At a rigorous scientific level, even physicists noted they could not explain this phenomenon satisfactorily at a human level other than to note the theory has been proven mathematically.

This is not a conclusion we would normally conceive in everyday life. But it goes farther, in that physical reality itself has an underlying matrix. While quantum physicists were trying to find the smallest components of physical reality by smashing atoms against one another, they came to an astonishing conclusion that physical components of reality were not actually comprised of physical components; i.e. Physical atoms are actually nothing but energy, as highlighted by Einstein’s famous equation E=mc². Through a series of scientific findings I discuss in my book, we also see that energy is equivalent to light, and light is equivalent to consciousness, thus showing that physical reality has an underlying support structure: a universal consciousness of which we are an important part. The scientific evidence on which this assertion is based is presented in my book, the first half of which is available for free online, if you’d like to consider the evidence further.

Once the nature of reality is understood, the meaning of life becomes clearer at a macro, societal level. We, as humans, were born for a purpose. That purpose was to experience. The “what” of the experience is the micro-element, which is highly individualized according to our own needs. This realization can provide amazing stress relief if you consider it long enough, such as through meditation. For example, there is nothing wrong with you or your situation. You are exactly as you (the soul) intended you (the human) to be. Thus, there really is no reason to compete with anyone else. You should merely strive to achieve and experience life for the experience and learning opportunity it represents uniquely for you. Life is not a race. He who dies with the most toys, still dies, though he dies without an everlasting benefit since tangible objects cannot be taken to the next plane of reality or enjoyed at the soul level for all eternity. Conversely, he who dies with loving friendships formed in life and great learning experiences from life on Earth provides his soul an everlasting benefit that can never be taken away. Which would you prefer?

Fortunately, as my book points out, these assertions don’t have to be taken on blind faith like religions would insist must be applied for their own dogma. You can consider the scientific evidence provided on which they are based, and then follow the suggestions provided in the book to test their validity for yourself. There is no knowledge like first-hand knowledge and such is available concerning the true nature of reality and the meaning of life if you truly want to know. My book is an easy-to-follow first step in helping readers arrive at a clear understanding of the nature of reality and the meaning of life, but the second step of proving those assertions to a person’s own satisfaction is left up to the individual. I hope you’ll share in that quest for knowledge with me.

How do you presume that death got started in the first place if man was created perfect?

How can we give a helpful reply to ‘what is the meaning of life’ without genuinely knowing how to explain our less-than-ideally-behaved, seemingly-imperfect human situation? I stumbled upon an article here that should give very good answer to our selfish and aggressive self. Look at the following and write about your thoughts

Death does not intefere with his logic. Perfection does not limit a being to its full potential form. Allan Kardec in his book "The Spirits' Book" (1857) had an interesting concept of the birth of souls which was that initially it starts forming through a mineral, evolving to vegetal to finally gain councious through an animal form until it encarnates in a human being, he also had death as a part of the evolution process of the consciousness. Although there is no material evidence to proof any of his statements it is the only religious theory I know that goes along with the scientific theory of evolution. Not sure if its even plausible as an argument, but sure is interesting.

I love this as it resonates with me so much. Beautifully said. If everyone read this, believed this and lived this...imagine how the world would differ for the better.

If you look at the reality of time...being that it exists as now (Past present and future) mixing it up within the multidimensionality of multiple universes, the soul doesn't harbor any particular choice as the preferred choice.

Perception of reality is based on levels of awareness, as consciousness creates multidimensional universes, which are just reflections of the movement of consciousness as it creates itself to experience differing levels of thought and action.
For example: A person creates a crossroads in life where one can take a turn towards peace or violence. That person thru consciousness splits into two (creating similar universes where each supports their opposite choice). One thinks he/she is real, as does the other. Both living their lives and experiencing the choices that take them towards the results of choice.

The individual is created as a reflection of consciousness, AND that thought (individual) has free will to experience itself as consciousness taking the original thought into levels of choice that may be thought of as separate from it's creator/soul. (This is what is behind the concept of "original sin").
Sin was originally seen as ignorance of ones own Self/Soul.

In expanded states of consciousness one becomes aligned with the original intent of the soul to act in accord to the design of the souls intention to manifest within the relative toward specific outcomes. In other words a person sees and experiences them self as the soul, rather than a creation of it.

All entities are created with a script that includes relative probable outcomes. Though they can vary to a degree in that someone who is ignorant of its own design may make choices that don't follow a script to the letter. But the Self/Soul is always whispering in the ear of the individual guiding it along its path, in dreams and even while awake.

True happiness or bliss, comes with awareness of ones Self and falling into that power/Self realization. Freedom of controversy and stress becomes the normal thought and experience; whereas when one is separated from that power thru the illusions of ego (where thoughts become identified with beliefs which are constantly changing and sometimes controversial) one believes themselves, as well as all things, to be random and victim to circumstance.

Relative happiness and love is conditional. It's based on personal realities and beliefs. Unconditional love and happiness is based on the creative spirit that flows thru all actions.
Consciousness is neither good nor bad. It just is and is the reason all things exist. Relativity is the reality of opposites. Black and white, hot and cold. Without one the other is never clearly experienced or known. Contrast is the power of relative knowledge and experience.

All of creation is orchestrated in such a way to support the multidimensionality of consciousness. A victim is created for the victimizer and so forth and so on. All things are interconnected and as such no thing is ever out of place. Everything that happens within any timeline is created and out-pictured into experience. Consciousness as the "seat of the soul" never dies, regardless of whether its thoughts seem to take to birth and death.

It would be similar to going to the movies to watch yourself be born and then die.

The enlightened see thru the eyes of the immortal soul. The unenlightened see themselves thru the eyes of the person on the screen, believing themselves to be separate from the soul watching the movie and believing in it's short life. Happiness for the man/woman on the screen is fleeting, and as you mentioned:
