What is new is not that the world lacks meaning, or has little meaning, or less that it used to have; it is that we seem to feel an explicit and intense daily need to give it meaning: to give meaning to the world, not just some village or lineage. This need to give a meaning to the present, if not the past, is the price we pay for the over abundance of events corresponding to a situation we could call 'supermodern' to express its essential quality: excess.
