What makes life more meaningful?

Life is life!Just like that and yet complicated. From now on I would like to ask: What is life? Where is the whole meaning of this ubiquitous existence of life and life, not only that of man. Can we make sense even more? The human race seems to be able to think about this at least, in contrast to other animal species that cannot or at least cannot express it in the same way as humans.
