What is the meaning of life?

[Large corporate boardroom filled with suited executives]
Exec #1: Item six on the agenda: “The Meaning of Life” Now uh, Harry, you’ve had some thoughts on this.
Exec #2:  Yeah, I’ve had a team working on this over the past few weeks, and what we’ve come up with can be reduced to two fundamental concepts. One: People aren’t wearing enough hats. Two: Matter is energy. In the universe there are many energy fields which we cannot normally perceive. Some energies have a spiritual source which act upon a person’s soul. However, this “soul” does not exist ab initio as orthodox Christianity teaches; it has to be brought into existence by a process of guided self-observation. However, this is rarely achieved owing to man’s unique ability to be distracted from spiritual matters by everyday trivia.
Exec #3:  What was that about hats again?
Exec #2:  Oh, Uh… people aren’t wearing enough.
Exec #1:  Is this true?
Exec #4:  Certainly. Hat sales have increased but not pari passu, as our research…
Exec #3:  [Interrupting] “Not wearing enough”? enough for what purpose?
Exec #5:  Can I just ask, with reference to your second point, when you say souls don’t develop because people become distracted…
[looking out window]
Exec #5:  Has anyone noticed that building there before?

from Monty Python’s The Meaning of Life

Evidently… not too many people have it figured out.

Or maybe they just don’t want to take the time.

Maybe it’s not important enough to spend time on in the first place.

Should it be a priority?
