    At least there's some fleeting entertainment in observing others going through the same and convincing themselves there is some sense in it all.

    Koji je smisao života? :holmes:
    We humans are highly developed primates whose prime biological drive is the propagation of our own species. However, seeing as we're so highly developed, we can falsely convince ourselves this life has any number of other meanings beside our desire to reproduce.

    Me too actually, since gap year :five:

    Have you read 'The conspiracy against the human race' by Thomas Ligotti?

    It's a revival of Peter Zaffe's essay. It paints existential nihilism as the horror show it truly is. Ligotti is actually a writer of horror stories.

    Also would recommend the Book of Disquiet by Pessoa if you are looking to indulge yourself in existential despair.
