Silly nihilist…

“What’s the point of living?” the nihilist asks. “Well,” replies the sun sage, “the point of living could be to ask that very question!”

Our cosmic insignificance is not a regrettable condition, it is freedom! This is among the most ebullient of epiphanies, for when faced with the contingency of human existence, while some people fear nihilism, I see only opportunity.

That life is is itself a reason to celebrate.
