The Meaning of Life

Most of our lives we filter our actions through the idea that we have a “special purpose”.
生活中的大部分时间,我们试图通过“我做的事情是不是有特别的意义”这一想法去区分我们的行为。

It’s hard to accept that our efforts would be largely pointless and quickly forgotten in our indifferent universe.
我们所有的努力都将变得毫无意义,并且在这浩瀚冷漠的宇宙中很快的被遗忘。这一点的确让人很难接受。

That search for our big, existential purpose often blinds us from the stuff we actually enjoy and keeps us from being with people that truly matter. in this way, Rick provides some serious catharsis for the audience.
这种去寻找意义重大、有存在价值的行为的做法,常常蒙蔽了我们的双眼。这种行为让我们忘记了我们实实在在享受的东西,让我们忘记了多花点时间陪在我们真正在意的人的身边。

we see someone who is so disaffected and cynical, actually gain enjoyment from being around his friends and family.
我们会见到一些人,他们是如此的愤愤不平和愤世嫉俗,实际上,他们从朋友和家人那里收获了愉悦。

Its through Rick, that the show tells us too embrace life, revel in it, and ultimately… not take it too seriously.
Rick告诉我们,去拥抱生命, 在生活中狂欢,并且根本的一点:对待生活不要过于的严肃。

“The answer is, don’t think about it.” — Rick
“答案就是,压根别去想这事儿。” — 瑞克

In our post modern age, religion, ideology, science and even common values don’t always provide a meaning for our existence and it can be extremely isolating.
在后现代时代,宗教、意识形态、科学甚至共同的价值观并不总是为我们的存在提供意义,而且这些观点可能是极其孤立的。

Rick and Morty doesn’t suggest that our search for existential meaning won’t continue
瑞克和莫蒂并不建议我们停止对存在意义这一问题的探索。

It only asks, if it’s a question worth answering when a meaningful life can be found through friends, family, and new experiences.
它只是提出一个问题:如果可以通过朋友、家庭和新的经历来发现有意义的生活,那么“活着的意义”这一问题还值得问么?

Indeed, the only thing more terrifying than not existing, or not knowing why you exist is
事实上,唯一比不存在,或者不知道你为什么存在更可怕的事情,那就是

existing and having no one too share it with.
你存在,却无人分享
