Visualizing the Meaning of Life: The Drip Coffee Model

Questions about the meaning of life contain assumptions:

  • “What’s the meaning of life?” Assumes that there’s a single meaning.
  • “Does my life have meaning?” Assumes (or at least hints) at a “yes” or “no” answer.

Problems of meaning=problems of insufficient value

Those who think life is meaningless feel that there is a gap between their expectations and reality: between the degree of value that life should have and the degree of value that it actually has. - Iddo Landau

To find meaning in life, we can either:

  1. Add more value: identify activities that are valuable to us  or we can remove activities that reduce value.
  2. Change our thinking: Perhaps our life already has sources of value, but we just aren’t looking at things in the right way.
