I agree, it is feared, mostly because people forget that though there may not be a point to life, it does still have meaning, if only to oneself.vertigo said:That is not the end of the story. Those who are tired of questioning reach this point and then decide that they have reached an impass. It is scary to think that life might be meaningless. Because it is scary, people fear to think that.
What I meant was that if one chooses to dwell on the possibility that there is no point to life...to the extent of not doing anything, or reverting back to a primitive way of thinking, it is like killing themselves...there is no point even to themselves, no drive to do anything except cuss the pointless-ness of life.vertigo said:Why must it mean something? Ask yourself why it is that we would like there to be some great meaning. You say now that we might as well be dead. That doesn't mean we should suddenly kill ourselves. It just means that we must re-evaluate what is important.
As for the rest of your words...I agree!
