Whats the point....to...anything?

I just have this opinion that nothing ever really amounts to anything.....

Perhaps you're right. It's one of those convictions that's pretty hard to debate.

So, the next point is...if nothing ever really amounts to anything then what are you going to do next? Marcus Aurelius used to write that even if the Epicureans were right, and we lived in a totally random, pointless universe where human life ended in total oblivion, he'd still live in exactly the same way because it was the best way to live. "Best" meaning, "most conducive to human happiness."

That's good enough for me.

This was a closed thread, and I opened it again, just in case anyone happened to have an answer for justme that s/he might find useful. That is, if s/he hasn't killed him/herself by now or become a famous emo poet.

I hope he/she joined the Marines and found, if not meaning in life, then joy in shooting at people and things.

The point is a sharp or tapered end, but that's not important...

Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right. --Henry Ford
I suspect this applies to whether you think things are important or not.

Life is like a box of chocolates...wait, I forgot the rest of that statement (something about running, I think)

I love that mtt took the time to respond.

He's the kind of guy who would.

Those crazy Epicureans. Who would ever choose to live life like that? Way to take 'em to task, Marcus Aurelius.
