Perfect yourself, or at least make yourself excellent, or perhaps somewhat better. As a side effect, you will better understand the sense and senselessness of our world, and accomplish
something beneficial in the world, and be thankful for your existence in this vale of tears.
Otherwise, you marinate in vanity of vanities and banality of banalities.

It is the epitome, the apotheosis of cynicism. I can appreciate it only on a completely horizontal plane of existence.Posted by Joan of Argghh! at January 26, 2016 4:06 AM
We can only know anything about the world because we cannot know everything about it. But knowing this means we are able to escape Godel's theorems -- or slip past the inescapable circularity of our concepts -- and be receptive to the energies of the Transcendent Whole, AKA God. You could say that we can only know anything because someOne knows everything. Otherwise knowledge would be impossible and absolute nihilism would be the only option.Posted by Gagdad Bob at January 27, 2016 10:13 AM
