Why haven't you embraced the absurdity and ultimate meaninglessness of life yet, /his/? We will all die, and the universe will eventually burn out. Everything notable that has happened throughout history will be forgotten about and it will all return to oblivion.
I swear after embracing nihilism I've become a much freer and happier person as a result.
Can we clarify burn out? The most accepted model of the universe is that it will continue to expand indefinitely. Matter on the Grand scheme will become more and more diluted. Eventually virtually all energy will be locked inside dead stars, and that the universe will drop to a temperature near 0K. Of course there are also theories that allow for the possibility of a contracted universe (big crunch) as well as options for black holes to release all their energy back into the universe. Of course, I'm not schooled enough on astronomy to go into more detail. Regardless, of course we'll die. Although in another sense, all we are to begin with is energy, which will exist indefinitely. So in a sense we are immortal. Just your specific, ultra-narrow consciousness is not.
Lucky. The first 16 years of my life were kinda hazy for me i am still meeting with random craziness that happened at that time and i only remember a few things from that time i threw away so many golden opportunities.
honestly I agree
I think much of the suffering and unhappiness throughout humanity has to do with people trying to find inherent meaning where it doesn't exist
nihilism is honestly the most optimistic philosophy there is: ultimately nothing will matter, so go out and have as much fun as you can.
Heat death is confusing, because the theory is actually discussing the lack of heat. As the universe cools, it will eventually reach a point where particles will move slowly, or not at all (0K).
Yet when people refer to nihilism, they are usually referring to existential nihilism.
>Of all types of nihilism, existential nihilism gets the most literary and philosophical attention.
>Most commonly, nihilism is presented in the form of existential nihilism, which argues that life is without objective meaning, purpose, or intrinsic value.[

When will this meme die
You can't pull meaning out of your arse.
The psychological experience of meaning ≠ meaning per se.
That's just forcing yourself into being blissfully ignorant. It's the opposite of philosophically valid.
