“We all want meaningful lives. We look for meaning in everything we do.
But suppose there IS no meaning. Supposed life is fundamentally absurd.
Suppose there’s no reason or truth, or rightness in anything.
What if nothing means anything? What if nothing really matters?
Or suppose everything matters. Which would be worse?”
–Bill Watterson, ‘Calvin and Hobbes’
There’s a small irony that one of the great philosphers of my era is a guy who draws a comic strip about a little kid and his imaginary tiger. Such it is, however.
