What's it all about?
A background in natural science is the best starting point for thinking about the meaning of life. But natural science without a coherent context is worse than ignorance. So, I recommend "general systems theory" to place the bits and pieces of modern science into their proper contexts. That means thinking about systems interacting with their environments. What are the properties of systems that allow them to adapt to changing environments?
(no satisfactory answers here)
(possible answers here, but they fall into two distinct categories):
(these are the views found in the best-seller nonfiction lists - lots of interesting facts, but often going in the wrong direction wherever the facts need to be interpreted)
(by reconsidering the facts of science from an evolutionary perspective, it is possible to find meaning in materialist science)
