Yeah, there doesn't have to be a specific meaning for the mandatory human machine to function, pretty strange when people always seem to be searching for this "meaning". Then again, these meanings are normally represented in forms of our positions in the system (career, job) or if someone has children they can suddenly place a meaning in their life as "mother, father".
Including a scale greater than the benefits for oneself would be looking towards the whole dispersing of the 'truth' wouldn't it? pretty much describing moving from STS to STO as much as possible. I suppose we all have an underlying meaning/goal to become more STO by firstly concentrating inwardly on ourselves o begin with, i.e. the whole concept of understanding man to understand the universe. Also, the other underlying goal would be to free ourselves from the machine/ free ourselves from the predator.
