>>7225856 >Philosophy formulates the questions implied in human existence, and theology formulates the answers implied in divine self-manifestation under the guidance of the questions implied in human existence. This is a circle which drives man to a point where question and answer are not separated. This point, however, is not a moment in time.
Can someone explain why exactly we must 'imagine Sisyphus happy'? From what I understand he has understood or 'embraced' the futility, pointlessness and hopelessness of his situation and because he understands this fully he is happy for it. Why exactly does this understanding lead to happiness, it seems like an unexplained leap to me which is given some sort of credence by the word 'embrace' as though embracing a bad situation realistically is different and somehow better than accepting it
I understood it that Sisyphus is cursed to perform this task and there is absolutely no way he can escape it. Our first reaction would be to resist the cruely and arbitrariness of the curse. This "no, oh shit, why?" is adding to burden - by embracing the task he is removing the resistance and can begin to find what little fragments of solace he has, like the relative freedom when the rock falls down the mountain, the good air etc.
