The Meaning of the Universe (C. S. Lewis)

C. S. Lewis said in Mere Christianity:

“If the whole universe has no meaning, we should never have found out that it has no meaning: just as, if there were no light in the universe and therefore no creatures with eyes, we should never know it was dark. Dark would be without meaning.”

If we think a bit, we will discover that this is true, of course. There has to be ultimate meaining in the universe, or none of us would be able to come to a conclusion about ultimate meaning. The concept would not exist.
