This apparent need to 'explain' life in absurd terms is fascinating to me, because I never felt it. Why do people do this? Why can't everyone just accept what their senses and rational thought tells them about their existence? Is it like existential disassociation? Is it a refusal to accept the simple fact that we're all just animals and this is likely the only life we'll ever get? Or is it a fear of our own mortality?
I feel like some people waste way too much time thinking about "simulations" or "Heaven and Hell" -- why not spend that time thinking about what's actually right in front of you all along: life?
