I guess then, there are three ways to respond to the human paradox (the universe being pointless, yet finding ourselves full of point);
1: Deny it exists, and submit to the Lord - he who gives us absolute meaning, morality and eternal salvation. It's a shame it's an illusion. It really is.
2: Medicate it away. Perhaps our most common response. Drugs, 1-way entertainment and banality give us the balm we need to ease our existential angst. In this, we confuse happiness with an absence of pain.
3: Accept the paradox for what it is, and suffer the consequences. Both good and bad.
Me? I bounce between 2 & 3 by the hour...
M'off to watch some friday night TV.
