To me, in “its” most simple and basic form, God is Meaning. I have an inalienable sense that life, the universe and everything actually means something, objectively. I cannot imagine meaninglessness any more than I can imagine nothingness. This may be some sort of intellectual failure on my part but I suspect most people share this same lack of imagination. Where I may differ is that I choose to call this ultimate objective Meaning, “God”. For me, at least, without “Meaning” in this sense, subjective “meaning” is meaningless. Ya know what I mean?
Happy, even in anguish, is he to whom God has given a soul worthy of love and grief! He who has not seen the things of this world, and the heart of men in this double light, has seen nothing, and knows noting of the truth.
