How do you mean that, OP? I mean, you're sending some very mixed messages here.

define "celebrate". i know books that make it a point that we exist, but typically those books are existentialist and are pretty depressing and i wouldnt say they celebrate existence. if anything, they do a great job acknowledging thats existence exists.
Read Nausea by Sartre btw

Look into the transcendentalists, OP. Hell, just read Emerson's essays.

The demiurge too is trapped in his own creation, and we must also have compassion for him and yearn for his salvation.

Childhood's End. Is so bitter sweet. It treats us like we are something special in a universe where everything dies in the annals of time. The ending always gets me; the Earth is destroyed and forgotten about for the rest of time but man lives on forever as part of a God-like conscious whilst the Overlords live on for eternity forever trapped in eternal life.
