"You are born, you live and than you die" So of course life is an absurdity. Nothing is important before you are born, most probably nothing important will be remembered about you after you die. And you will be forgotten in generations that will pass after your death.
But strangely I find that the most comforting thing in this world.
As I see things if "hell is other people" than no one should be in hell because there's a 99,99% chance that he is just as irrelevant as you are and therefore his words and actions are meaningless.
That what brings meaning to ones life is completely up to ones decision and choice. And the meaning of life question should be interpreted like that. But that doesn't change the fact that...
...in the end everybody will be forgotten (even Newton and Einstein), because everything has its birth, its life and its death, and that also includes humankind and the universe. It is comforting to know that even "Newton" isn't more special than me when you look at the whole picture.
PS: Agree on sticky this thread!
Its started with Chelsea, then came Inter, than came Arsenal and 27.4.2011 was time to rip off Madrid!
