• Does accepting the meaninglessness of life free you from existential angst, and allow you to begin to actually enjoy it?

    Best answer: It's not that life is meaningless, it's that there's no meaning that's separate from yourself. People are always looking for some independently-existing meaning. When you really understand that that doesn't exist, that "man is the measure of all things", then you understand that... show more
    Best answer: It's not that life is meaningless, it's that there's no meaning that's separate from yourself. People are always looking for some independently-existing meaning. When you really understand that that doesn't exist, that "man is the measure of all things", then you understand that you're free, that you're not bound by the beliefs and expectations and judgments of your "tribe" and of the significant others in your life.

  • What's this logical fallacy called? When someone asks you a question but they want you to answer it in a certain way, set parameters?

    Like a question you can't just directly answer, you have to explain your answer by way of analogy or something and they wont accept that.

    Best answer: Life as such has no meaning...... it acquires a meaning when it creates self-awareness and this meaning differs from one to another as every self is unique.
    In my own case, I find a simple peaceful life to be meaningful enough. Aiming at high ambition merely fills our life with exciting anticipation to start with but soon to become the source of concern, worry and labour, and finally even if achieved, it would merely be something that gives self-satisfaction for the time being and boosts the ego, but ultimately proves to be worth little in the grand context of this vast universe of which we are but a minuscule part only.

    I asked a similar question the other day and people on YA didn't seem to get what I was getting at. I mean cold is the absence of heat. But what if in an alternate reality cold didn't exist at all for the sake of argument. Then how could we or at least re-defined heat? That's my point with evil and... show more

  • Do you prefer a world with finite possibilities or with infinite ones?

    Best answer: Aside from the fact that we cannot know if there are truly infinite possibilities or not, we couldn't possibly make use of infinite possibilities, nor even a fairly large set of them. Therefore I'll settle for finite ones as long as there are enough to satisfy my needs, which there definitely are. Example:... show more
    Best answer: Aside from the fact that we cannot know if there are truly infinite possibilities or not, we couldn't possibly make use of infinite possibilities, nor even a fairly large set of them. Therefore I'll settle for finite ones as long as there are enough to satisfy my needs, which there definitely are. Example: I love listening to music and drinking good wine. There's definitely a finite amount of both, but far more than I could ever experience or even become aware of. Life is too short for that.
