Is everyone depressed? I don't mean just here. Everyone must realize their struggle is worthless.

I legitimately do not see how it could be any other way. I think most people just hide it really well.

knowledge is the plague of life, and consciousness, an open wound in its heart

a lot of people simply just aren't aware that everything they do is meaningless in the face of the eternal abyss and live their lives in blissful ignorance, working some shit job, marrying some ugly wife and having some stupid children thinking they'll leave any impact on the world.

those who are aware either fill their time with working and trying to leave some temporal legacy, or they wallow in self-pity and use the "nothing I do has any ultimate signifance" line to justify their lack of effort and discipline.

>trying to leave some temporal legacy
why?
>>
>>26415871
99.8% sure everybody looks at another person and thinks, man they have their life together unless they're a literal bum.
>>
>>26416459

it is the only other option, working to achieve something gives you a reason not to kill yourself immediately.

>>26416516
there's also hedonism
>>
>>26416576

that is the wallowing part.
>>
>>26416897
it's wallowing in selfish pleasure, but before you said self-pity. not the same thing at all. i think it's quite possible to see everything as meaningless and just do whatever the fuck you find enjoyable until you die, without worrying about leaving a legacy.
>>
>>26416292
I believe otherwise. You look at music, film, tv, poetry, philosophy, history: all of it is about the struggle of meaninglessness and the face of death. Everyone is aware of it. Just not talked about in the open as much because it reminds us and is a bummer.

Dopamine, oxytocin, seratonin keep people from dwelling on it or letting it get to them.

They're certainly aware of the fact, it just doesn't really matter due to these chemicals effects on the brain. No more, no less.

It's only a bummer because of the christian values in western society. Many eastern philosophies look it at as a good thing
