We have seen the future, and it sucks.

What’s the Point?

1st July 2017

Severian cuts to the chase.

It’s fun — by which I mean very, very sad — watching Lefties struggle with the fact that there’s a point to life.

Yes, there is, and everyone knows there is.  At least, everyone behaves as if there is, which is functionally the same thing.  Albert Camus, the famous existentialist novelist, once said that the only real problem in philosophy is the problem of suicide — as in, since life is so obviously pointless, why don’t we just kill ourselves?  The fact that Camus had no plans to off himself should tell you how seriously to take this kind of remark.  We may actually be random conjunctions of atoms in an endless void, but nobody acts like we are.

I know why I’m here. I just don’t know why you’re here. Except maybe to irritate me.

    Irritating you just happens to be one of my little joys in life.
