Is this actually the meaning of life? That’s certainly open to interpretation. But this two minute animation will certainly provide perspective in an increasingly goal-oriented world.


The video is based on the philosophy of Alan Watts, and its animation is attributed to South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone. (As GOOD Magazine points out, “it’s difficult to say for sure whether the famed duo are responsible” for these clips.)

Is it to work hard in school so we can get into a good college?


Or is it to get a good job and rise up in the ranks?


Either way, watch the full clip below. Hopefully, it provides a short burst of clarity.
