Why human life makes sense: The ultimate answers for the ultimate questions

The purpose of this meetup group is to provide space for discussing the fundamental nature of human life. Any such questions are welcome, and you can get a feel for what the group will be like by exploring my Seattle group.

I’m Philip Bitar, and I will facilitate the discussion. After earning a doctorate in computer science, I spent 10 years developing a comprehensive theory of human life. I published the theory in a carefully organized, tightly integrated book having seven chapters:

Knowledge, reality, religion, ethics, commerce, government, and meaning — the meaning of human life

My disposition is that of an engineer: define a problem clearly and then solve it decisively. I believe that I’ve achieved this in my comprehensive theory. I believe that the theory makes sense of human life in all of its ramifications and that these results are consistent with modern science and with the deepest longings of the human spirit for meaning and purpose.

If you enjoy discussing questions about the fundamental nature of human life, I invite you to join us!

And if you’ve ever wondered if such questions can be decisively answered, I believe that you’ll be fascinated to discover that they can.

The upcoming meetings will occur on these days: ....

I'm going to hold off scheduling more meetings till I have more time or till greater interest develops.

I'll schedule the topic for a meeting in response to member preferences. I've proposed some topics as shown below, and I welcome suggestions from members. As you can see from my Seattle group, I'm interested in covering any topic that pertains to the fundamental nature of human life, and this includes philosophy, religion, psychology, relations, ethics, commerce, governance, and all facets of history because history informs us about human life.
