Neil deGrasse Tyson's take on the Meaning of Life

In a conference a young kid asks astrophysicst Neil deGrasse Tyson the age-old question: “What's the Meaning of Life?” His answer made me realized that he and I share the same philosophy (in my case it's almost a religion). In a nutshell, here's what he said:
“So when I think of 'meaning' in life, I ask, 'Did I learn something today that I didn't know yesterday, bringing me a little closer to knowing all that can be known in the universe?' If I live a day and I don't know a little more than I did the day before, I think I wasted that day.”
You can see the full exchange yourself on Youtube:
