Extracting Meaning from Emptiness


I saw this quote on Reddit recently, and it resonnated with me. It reminded me of my thoughts on meaning, which basically conclude that meaning is not real, but that pleasure, happiness, and beauty are our best (and perhaps only) replacements for it.

The comments on this post were worthwhile.


I especially liked the first part:

Sadly, I don’t believe beauty is a diversion from a false belief that there is no meaning, but rather that beauty is the diversion from the truth, which is that there is none.

But I’m ok with that. The wonders of this world are enough for me. ::
