Elucidating the meaning-of-life problem

“ As each situation in life represents a challenge to man and presents a problem for him to solve, the question of the meaning of life may actually be reversed. Ultimately, man should not ask what the meaning of his life is, but rather he must recognize that it is he who is asked.”

“Live as if you were living already for the second time and as if you had acted the first time as wrongly as you are about to act now!”

“He who has a why to live can bear with almost any how.” — Nietzche

I was quite impressed to see Frankl address the feeling of total meaninglessness of life — which he calls the Existential Vacuum.
