The meaning of meaning (Unpublished)

Meaning is more important than life itself, as people may sacrifice their lives for a meaningful cause. Trauma disrupts meanings. To make life worth living again, meaning must be restored.

Survival strategies (see Table) provide a framework through which we can understand immediate and long term categories of positive and negative meanings.
