The meaning of life is the same as the meaning of death. The process of evolution is an iterative one. Be created as an iteration, create another iteration, die and be replaced by successively newer iterations. Evolving, adapting, bringing us ever closer to growing up and joining our progenitorial source on the macro level just as we do on the micro. Our individual mortal lives are lower order of magnitude embodiments of our collective existence as a species. Reality has often been observed mirroring itself on different orders of magnitude.
