The PERSONAL has been stripped from the centre of our individual universes by modern science (particularly biology and evolutionary theory/psychology) just as the earth was once relegated from the centre of the universe to an insignificant spot by one of a trillion suns. Asserting ‘meaning’ is now either just old-fashioned or foolish.
sorry, friend, this is getting a bit whiny. Like you're complaining that there's no longer any taboo secret stuff, no scintillating mystery. There is still "personal", it does not blow the whole deal just because we have knowledge, a sharing.
I personally am a big fan of foolish, the extrication of useless dignity, better saved for a first date with foreign dignitaries, not as a steady diet.
