the meaning of life

Recommended Posts

[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?
