true, this is exactly what happens. but life is more than that, right? there's no sequence of sad words that can take out the powerful felling that exists behind our little special insignificant moments serching for meaning is intriguing. but find the meaning is not a necessity, SEARCHING, that's the fun part of philosphy

It's not even about that. It's just there to help you to get by and find some peace of mind when there are so many things bothering you on the outside. It doesn't have to have certain purpose or answer your questions, if you find it boring or useless, then you certainly have to go to the club instead. Not for you.

"while in reality. there freaking isn't" first you say philosophy is pointless, then you make many philosophical statements. this is very typical and i see it a lot. for example: "metaphysics is dumb speculation, everyone knows the world is just how science sees it". etc sorry this triggers me, its always this pattern. say a discipline is stupid then make assertions that belong to that discipline

Combatting pervasive nihilism is the most important function of philosophy. Meaninglessness is crippling and when it incites a curse of being itself it can create grest tragedy. The fricken columbine kids used nihilism to call humanity a disease that needs to be eradicated. There are ways in which one can find meaning in this temporal and seemingly meaningless world. I'd recommend Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning or Leo Tolstoy's philosiphical writings, they're quite eye-opening on the existence of meaning. If you don't think meaningless and nihilism is a problem you must realize that without meaning and purpose there is no reason to do or not do anything. One might look at existence itself and curse it for its lack of meaning, and wish to eradicate it as many mass killers have. Retarded nihilists sometimes quote Nietzsche on nihilism, but the man drove himself to insanity and death by trying to combat meaninglessness and derive an objective system of values without religion. He understood the problem of nihilism and sought to see its end. Tldr nihilism is retarded and dangerous, and philosophy combats it. Anyone who is self aware enough to think can become nihilistic, and thus philosophy is beneficial.

2020-02-13 14:38
There are numerous individuals who have found meaning without religion. It is not a necessity, as proven by Tolstoy and Frankl. I would recommend reading A Confession by Tolstoy, great little book related to this.
2020-02-13 21:57
that wasn't my point. you are making normative statements about the need for meaning

Honestly, Nihilism is the only way, you can't achieve real meaning without religion, i think that's just impossible, Nietzche failed to actually combat and beat meaninglessness and i actually argue for antinatalism which means i think people should stop reproducing and make humans and all the life species go extinct.
2020-02-13 15:04
Nietzsche did indeed fail, but others have different outlooks. I stand by the fact that meaning is possible without religion, a higher purpose isn't the only means. Often people find meaning in others and advancement of either technology or society--small actions in any will have a multiplicative effect on the future as everything is built upon previous advancement, be in social or technological. I'm gonna soon sound like a broken record but if you haven't read Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, I'd highly recommend it. The guy's story is an absolutr tragedy and he ends up in a concentration camp, and he goes through how he found meaning under some of the worst suffering imaginable. He talks about finding meaning in suffering, as suffering is ever present in humanity. To my previous nihilistic outlook, such a claim initially sounded absolutely absurd, but the book really changed that for me and I let go of my nihilism. As for antinatalism, I was previously sympathetic to it but honestly I have no sympathy for it any longer. It's too close to the ideology of mass murders for my liking so I shyed away from it.
2020-02-13 22:48
One of the dumbest things humanity has ever typed out, good job. People do horrible for every ideology that humanity has ever thought of, especially religion.
2020-02-13 15:34
While you're right that Nietzsche diagnosed and sought to combat nihilism, he definitely did not try to derive an *objective* system of values. He wanted each person (capable of it) to realise him/herself by continually, subjectively affirming life and recreating values in a process of creative destruction, of transvaluation, staring nihilism dead in the eye without flinching.

nihilism is philosophy aswell

Cogito, ergo sum. Aside from that, nothing is known. To me, philosophy is infinitely interesting but beyond the cogito it's also entirely speculative (I would say fictitious but that would imply that nothing produced by it is true and nobody can know that). In other words, in the barest sense, the meaning of existence is existence. I exist, that's the only thing I know to be fact. Anything beyond that is faith and is arbitrary. I'm not trying to diminish the usefulness of faith either by the way, I'm only saying that I don't believe it to be necessary.

nothing has absolute meaning - therefore you decide what has meaning for you, and that might be viewed as beauty, tragedy or comedy im going to study some philosophy this year wrote to me at the end of the year, and i will tell you my conclusion about it

i guess when you become enlighten you also become egoistic, that two go up together...

yeah but you are not enlighten you are just egoistic...

Meaning comes from minds, they're the ones who ascribe meaning to things. So there can be meaning to life and reality, as long as we ascribe it ourselves. In a way, saying that there's no meaning to anything is already trying to ascribe some meaning, because in order to believe that there's no meaning, you need to be able to evaluate this situation and accept it as true. It's even more meaningful to you if you decide to take actions as a consequence of this worldview (such as, for example, promoting the end of all life), because not only it would derive your worldview, but it would also derive a plan of action, a motivation, an alternative state of the world to reach, aka, something that you think has more value than the current world. If you actually believed that everything was meaningless you wouldn't even try to communicate your worldview to us, in fact you wouldn't even communicate at all, it would be meaningless to you, in fact you would probably already be dead, because you would probably have ignored many things that do have meaning to humans and keep them alive. I don't think any human is capable of actually thinking that there's absolutely no meaning whatsoever, our brains don't function that way, but even if there were some rare specimens who would, they would not live long and they would certainly be nothing like someone creating threads on HLTV trying to convince others that their worldview is the correct one.
2020-02-13 15:57
+1 for the most part I don't however believe that those who ascribe absolutely no meaning to life, or those who mistakenly believe so approach meaning in this way, decisions and actions don't always require meaning. We can lackadaisically make actions and decisions without care, and people get into a limbo state where things just happen. Speaking from experience, it's not a fun time. I do heavily agree with your point that heirachical decisions and determinations of value are evidencing meaning. Calling something meaningless is ascribing some level of importance to it, as it's important enough to recognize it in the first place.
2020-02-13 22:59
"I don't however believe that those who ascribe absolutely no meaning to life, or those who mistakenly believe so approach meaning in this way, decisions and actions don't always require meaning. We can lackadaisically make actions and decisions without care, and people get into a limbo state where things just happen. Speaking from experience, it's not a fun time." I also think that these people would not see it that way from their perspective, but do you, yourself, still consider that they would ascribe some kind of meaning to their reality, even if it's not something that would be enjoyable for them in any way? Or do you share their point of view that they would therefore not ascribe any meaning *whatsoever*? Now if they were only thinking about the positive version of the term "meaning", that is, something to strive for, something that is greater than your self, something that drives your life as a human, then their state of depression would obviously not meet this kind of criteria, I agree. But if they argue that they would ascribe no meaning *whatsoever*, then I think they're overreaching (although from the perspective of depression they might not think so, which I can understand, after all, the positive version of "meaning" is the most important to us humans, so I think it would be easy to determine that there's none at all if we don't find this version of meaning).
2020-02-13 23:26
The consensus among the psychology field is that we really can't function without ANY meaning, so I certainly agree with your assessment. The vast majority of the time, people do ascribe meaning to at least some things even if they claim that no meaning exists. Yes there is an important differentiation in types of meaning, and depression certainly modifies
