Can an Immortal Life Retain its Meaning?

In a video presentation for Professor Tubert’s first year seminar Life, Death, and Meaning, Jordan Santiago Pearson aims to answer the question: can an immortal life retain its meaning?

Pearson spent several weeks in the hospital during the semester, so his presentation incorporates his personal narrative in regards to “meaning.”

“I found that an individual’s own desires give life meaning, and that as absurd as life is, it is only meaningless if one allows it to be so.”
