Trying to find your own meaning is based on the rather selfish assumption that you have a meaning to be found

It's all selfish subjective meaning until you experience the truth. Then you will learn the true meaning of life.

Since our Creator and I aren't religious, you must be talking about those heathens who have never heard Me speak into their minds. They believe in the information called the Beast that taught them how to build things with their human hands and that's where all religions came from.

what is the meaning of 'selfishness' did you just ascribe it a meaning or was it obvious?

The meaning of life is neither of these, yet all people assume that things have meaning. You made this assumption when you wrote that post, so you should understand why it is natural for people to search for meaning when meaning is hard to find.

Meaning, like the fall of gentle waves,
Shipwrecked on shore,
With nowhere to turn,

Are we here not,
That is the meaning you see.
