Almost, The Myth Of Sisyphus

01.09.1976 – ???

The struggle itself towards the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart.

One must imagine Sisyphus happy. ― Albert Camus

Taking the absurd seriously means acknowledging the contradiction between the desire of human reason and the unreasonable world. In philosophy, ‘the Absurd’ refers to the conflict between the human tendency to seek inherent value and meaning in life, and the human inability to find any in a purposeless, meaningless or chaotic and irrational universe. The universe and the human mind do not each separately cause the Absurd, but rather, the Absurd arises by the contradictory nature of the two existing simultaneously.

The absurd only makes sense insofar as you don't come to terms with it. In revolting against the absurd, as a reaction to accepting the absurd, the ‘absurd man’ can realise himself and achieve the greatest extent of his freedom. Without acknowledging religious or other moral constraints, while accepting the absurdity as irreversible, one might be content with the personal meaning created in the process.
