@wistahe there are so many layers to this I love it

also I have to shout out absurdism whenever I see it

@syn @wistahe if I had to ascribe to any one philosophy, I'd have to pick absurdism... it to me is the most appealing philosophy that also isn't just filled with holes

I'm making my life meaningful

@pry @syn I like absurdism a lot, but sometimes I feel life is already meaningful. How can it not be when you enjoy spending time with others or go hiking through trails in the country on a cool winter evening before seeing the air filled with seed pods floating on the wind? Or get lost in resolving a weird paradox? Even though these joys aren't universal, somehow it's impossible to find ourselves without meaning and I want to know why that is.

@wistahe @pry i lost something that made those things rewarding
the things i still find solace in feel like distractions or reminders of my smallness/ephemerality, in that my experience & frustration with the collective self will ultimately pass and i will be free, even if i am too weak to make that choice now when i am otherwise gripped w/ purpose

@wistahe @syn perhaps I'm closer in belief to an existentialist but idk...

I find that there are a few things that to me feel inherently meaningful: relationships with others and building things. both of these feel so human to me and there may even be some sort of evolutionary reason or smthing but that doesn't change the fact that I deeply care about these acts

I do think life is inherently meaningless tho... or at least the universe is
