In Search of A/The Point of Life

MUMMY DIES DURING CHILDBIRTH

My birth day is also a death day. During the almighty push that is my coming-into-being from her tummy, mummy reaches her own limits and gives up, gives in, expires, kicks the bucket. At least it is a snappy death. Such is life.

At her funeral, a bomb explodes. According to the twitter feed by the met, it is a suspected terrorist attack in Nondon. All my family members are wiped out in a single splash of fireworks. They are shredded into pieces, so many that I cannot pick up.

So I am alone, here, in Life 3.0, an orphan, blank slate, tabula rasa, ground zero, with no memory, no baggage, no heritage, no history, no obligations, no expectations to fulfill, no roots, no customs, nothing to declare, an open book, no thing.

The clear, singular task and purpose that I am born is to look for the Meaning of Life 3.0. So we know our starting point, and the destination, but the in-between, the getting-there, is the point of this. The question is how we get there, and I need your help with that.

I say goodbye to mummy, daddy and my siblings, and embark on my trip. I move on.

    Without your parent(s) here though, how are you going to gain contacts within Life 3.0?

    Well, I will just have to stick it out on me own. To carry no baggage, and just as Wilde advises, to be taken at face- (or faces-) value – isn’t this liberating!
