To paraphrase Deepak Chopra, I hope someone can correct me if I have the order wrong or skipped a part, but thoughts create desire, desire creates potential, potential creates action, and action creates reality. Thus from a single thought we can create our own reality. Our happiness, our success, our relationships, and even the realization of our dreams.

Is this the meaning you are referring to? The meaning we devise? Or are you simply wondering if the divine has set out a meaning and we have to discover it through our existence, life, dreams, and the power we can tap into?

But does anything really have meaning other than the meaning we give it? Would the universe care about it's meaning if it didn't produce beings able to ponder whether there is a meaning?

This seems to me to be a run-on sentence where one takes very short sentences/snippets of sentences and uses the last word of a sentence to start the next, but combine all these in one sentence.

I would ask where you found this, deadneos?

It doesn't make any particular sense at the end of the sentence, but knowing the context might help with that.

Is this like the intelligence test in Flowers for Algernon?

Given : that that is is that that is not is not

Reply: That that is, is. That that is not, is not.

If so, then one solution for

Everything has meaning existence meaning being alive has meaning have dreams use power

would be

Everything has meaning. Existence, meaning being alive, has meaning. Have dreams use? Power?

I was thinking along the same lines, eight bits, but the last few words/sentences didn't make sense (in the context of the philosophical direction of the first two sentences which are about meaning), hence I asked my question.

Howdy, Leo, I thought your question was great.

I liked it so much, I Googled the phrase, and look where it came up

(on the page, search for "Brail text")

Apparently it has something to do with video gaming.

So we are being asked to help someone cheat on their Pokemon video game!!!!!!!!!

deadneos,

It's likely one would have to have knowledge of the game itself before we could discern the meaning of this phrase in that context. I'd put this question to those who have played the game if I were you.

I'm not going to say anything to those posters who responded with deep philosophical insight to this.  tongue.gif
