Life's meaning probably occurs on the horizon of optimization:

Today, artificial intelligence exceeds mankind in many human, cognitive tasks:

The creation of general artificial intelligence is so far, mankind's largely pertinent task, and this involves (i), i.e. optimization.
The human brain computes roughly 10^16
synaptic operations per second.
Mankind has already created brain based models that achieve 10^14
of the above total in (iii).
If mankind isn't erased (via some catastrophe), on the horizon of Moore's Law, mankind will probably create machines, with human-level brain power (and relevantly, human-like efficiency), by at least 2020
Using clues from from quantum mechanics
, and modern machine learning, I have composed (am composing) a naive fabric in aims of absorbing some non-trivial intelligence's basis.
