Life is absurd, deal with it.

That is a contradictory statement.

People are responding in kind. Come up with something intelligent if you want an intelligent response.

1) Assumption that everyone has an ultimate authority.
2) Stating without any explanation why if you don't have an ultimate authority then your position is absurd.
3) Not defining what an ultimate authority actually is.

Right now my position is sitting upright. I guess I am my own authority on that.

Sitting up? What an absurd position to take. I prefer leaning. Yes

I hope that the world turns, and things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you. - V for Vendetta

1. If you don't have one, how can you know anything? You have no basis
2. See 1
3. An authority that is the basis for all your beliefs.

So, your ultimate authority is evidence? Evidence, as interpreted by whom? Everyone is going to interpret it differently.

I have no ultimate authority. Evidence can be contradictory so at best we can only ever be mostly correct.
