Recently, my teammate AP2 published a touching post about life’s meaning. A major point he sought to make was this:
which he connects with the danger of losing a sense of meaningfulness, the danger of getting swallowed up by a personal existential nihilism, of becoming trapped in the darkness of perceived and felt pointlessness.
This is very close to a thought I’ve arrived at, again and again, over many years: life is not something that has a meaning bestowed from without; life is a set of conditions which allow meaning to occur, to take shape, to be found and be given.
Does that make sense to you? I wonder if I put it too technically when I write of “conditions”(?).
