Meaning -

The Bushman storytellers talk about two kinds of hunger.  They say there is a physical hunger, then what they call the Great Hunger.  That is the hunger for meaning.  There is only one thing that is truly insufferable, and that is a life without meaning.  There is nothing wrong with the search for happiness.  But there is something great - meaning - which transfigures all. When you have meaning you are content, you belong.
