Quoting Jean-Paul Sartre “Life has no meaning a priori. Before you come alive, life is nothing; it’s up to you to give it a meaning”. According to current Monist theory we are conscious agents giving meaning. Monism says there is no external world upon which to assign meaning. Matter doesn’t exist but is imagined for communication between conscious agents. That chair you’re sitting on is a fabrication of consciousness. There is no matter, the universe is consciousness. We imagined matter for communication between conscious agents, everything is mind.
