In and out of meaning

‘In and Out of Meaning’ - A four-day workshop tried to study the conflict between ‘the constant effort to make meaning in life’ and ‘the ever-emerging meaninglessness of life’. Why do we often ask or get asked: ‘What do you mean?’ Why does a song/text/film/expression that was meaningless to us earlier become very meaningful later? Why is being selfish is many times referred to as being mean? Is a scientific-objective-universal meaning better, or a cultural-subjective-personal meaning better? Why does something become meaningful to us at all? And then why suddenly it stops being meaningful someday?
