Category Mistake

Last couple of years I feel very Zen - without really knowing what Zen is. What I mean is: I feel very in balance. You probably say "you always are."

For me it's a category mistake if someone says "life makes or has no sense".

For me it's like this. Sense is senses getting data for perception. Our mind is interpreting the data: what we see, smell, hear, taste, feel etcetera. In my vocabulary, being alive means our senses get data for perception. Death means: getting no more data for perception. So life can't be senseless. Data overload yes but never senses not getting data. And what surprises me most is, that most of the time we don't realize it at all. Isn't it wonderful?
