It’s easy to take things for granted and only want what you can’t have, but if you take a real look from the outside, life is a great opportunity, even if it ends with no prize.


Yes! I use this video any time I explain nihilism to people. Cause they alway think of it as so depressing. Saying, “If that is how you think, why not kill yourself.” I’m glad someone was able to communicate it better than me.


Although I haven't studied Albert Camus in any depth, this seems to dovetail with his Absurdism philosophy.
