Easy: There is no meaning of life, no goal system can sustain itself without one, and they all commit suicide. Of course, those three items in sequence form a rather tenuous logic (life could have meaning, our cheapjack human systems function without one, and why is suicide more rational than anything else?), but it's a possibility.
