      The meaning of life is different for everyone. For me it is to make a positive impact on society, even if its only a small one.

      I see the answer to that as whatever makes you work, whatever you want to do in life. The meaning of my life is to use my geek powers to make some elements of the world better. I’m involved in finding new medicines, and making robotic limbs for amputees. In future I want to do loads of different things to help people’s lives to just be nicer and easier. I want to be a part of making our species live on for many more millennia. (A millennium is 1000 years.)

      Also the meaning of life for me is to experience this planet and some of the rest of the universe; there are so many interesting things that exist naturally, and produced by creative people.
