Camus & the Meaning of Life – Quick one…

According to Camus, there is what we feel and what we know.

We feel that life is full of meaning and as such we live our lives in accordance with that feeling. This is because we have consciousness which leads us to see meaning everywhere.

– However what we know in fact is that life, the universe, everything is absolutely meaningless.  acmus

My 2 cents: Soeee?

~ I know that that life really does not have meaning, yet I live life as thought it were full of meaning.  So there is what I know and how I react to what I know.

~ I know life is meaningless and yet I react to it as though it were meaningful.

– I think that this is headed in the direction of the Paradox of Fiction.
