    Re: Existence's vanity

    Existence is vain only without purpose. At least in my opinion.

    Re: Existence's vanity

    good answer, but what's a "good" purpose if any at all? If one were to ask Kissinger he would say "Power is the best aphrodisiac" it seems that once a human being gets the basics he will degenerate to his "Will to Power" as Nietzshe reminds us of.

    In my opinion existence is accumulating ideas by finding patterns and creating the best picture of everything that surrounds you including yourself. Our day to day life is pretty much governed by our sub- conscious. Monotony, routines, humans are good at that, one has to shake it off to be a free thinker.

    Ciao!
