Set you free from what? I could say some misguided writings made the phrase, The Truth Will Set You Free think there is anything to that idea.

But I think you've well deservingly found questions

Oh, I see. Now three or four relatively straight forward paragraphs is a "wall of text." Anti-intellectualism at its finest.

Good question. Fear? The almost neurotic anxiety I feel when i've wandered too near the bottomless pit... of thought, the meaningless of my own existence, etc.?

I'm inclined to agree. I don't think there is a way out from it... but doesn't it make everything one does feel almost overshadowed by a cloud of absurdity?

Isn't that the beauty of it? Consider

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

Perhaps... but what is beauty? Smile

Whatever it is, mine is different than yours but both are equally beautiful. If we understood it, it wouldn't be absurd. I'd just be bored then, and wouldn't find it to be beautiful.

And around and around we go, it's just a ride. Tongue

Er... yup?

Ya know, we're screwed whichever way you look at it. So eat, drink and be merry Smile I used to worry because I felt that anything I did would be ultimately useless but... ya know... why should I be sad about stuff that happens at the end of my life? Why should I feel that things are useless *now* unless they last forever? I can either fight change or embrace it. Fighting it is futile, as everyone except those who long for the glory days of bronze age goat herding recognises, so the other option is the one I choose.

Right now I'm young, fit and healthy, and having fun. One day I will be old, buggered and maybe not having as much fun. But by Jupiter, I will live my life to the max. I will do shit for no reason other than that I feel like doing it. I hope to find sexy girls to fuck...

It's very easy to overthink this stuff...

True enough, but with the right perspective that's not always a bad thing. As long as you're not doing it all the time.
