"That Man is the product of causes which had no prevision of the end they were achieving; that his origin, his growth, his hopes and fears, his loves and his beliefs, are but the outcome of accidental collocations of atoms; that no fire, no heroism, no intensity of thought and feeling, can preserve an individual life beyond the grave; that all the labours of the ages, all the devotion, all the inspiration, all the noonday brightness of human genius, are destined to extinction in the vast death of the solar system, and that the whole temple of Man’s achievement must inevitably be buried beneath the débris of a universe in ruins—all these things, if not quite beyond dispute, are yet so nearly certain, that no philosophy which rejects them can hope to stand. Only within the scaffolding of these truths, only on the firm foundation of unyielding despair, can the soul’s habitation henceforth be safely built."

- Bertrand Russell, Free Man's Worship

Nailed it.

Not to say I am not living a deluded life. I may be but knowledge of the above truths does free me up. I am not free but it does free me up. It can bring a serenity and a calm that follows the unyielding despair. Once I know that I am in ruins, we are all in ruins, and even the universe is in ruins it becomes ok. We are all going down. So, what are we going to do? Well, we are going to do whatever it is we are going to do. Why the hell am I choosing to go into a seafood market just about everyday at slightly difficult hours doing not so slightly mundane stuff? Why does my past and the way my brain fires lead to that outcome? I am dying man! I don't want to be spending my time doing that... but I need the plata, the dinero, the scratch. I want to surf. I want to go to Paris and eat escargot and just hang out in the Luvre garden with a quirky Parisian belle. I want to live man. I'll take a diner with friends. A bath in the forest. The transcendence of cooking a nice meal. There is no way out. Yes, in the potential absurdity of the look of the other but that is typically just not a big deal. The ceasing to exist. The mystery. The gamble. That is the heavy one. All the striving and joys and trials and tribulations will all be for nothing... but what about now! Yes, everyone says now is what matters! The Power of Now! Being in the moment. From my experience, that is a good place to be. Let a samurai behead me as I climax inside of Kate Upton... but I don't wanna die! I really don't but getting acceptance with that fact that I will die and it could be at any moment does make my soul sing: "Strange Fruit" deep in a forest with an audience of only critters followed by a multitude of bird a capella that was playing all the time. I am doing my best. The best the fates will let me.
