Quick Start Guide

Congratulations on the acquisition of your new body! Through mysterious processes inexplicable to all of us, your consciousness has been installed in the body of a male or female of the species homo sapiens, which itself has been installed in a specific location on Planet Earth.  By now, you have had a chance to experiment with your body, get used to the motor controls and explore the basic parameters of your world. Now let's start talking about higher processes: who you are, where you are going and why are you here.

You may ask, "What is the meaning of life?" but that's really the wrong question. The question you should be asking yourself is, "What do I do now?" One way or another you have to take actions in the world, and life's "meaning" will eventually flow from how you decide to behave. You may not know where your life is ultimately headed, but you can still make intelligent choices for today, based on the information right in front of you.
