We are all just star dust

Nothing matters. Nobody is making any permanent difference or impact in any way. In the grand scheme, life is far less than a blink, whether you live 100 minutes or 100 years. Time erases everything. So just get over yourself.

Just because

we are small in the grand scheme doesn't mean we don't matter. There are certainly people who are making a difference in my life and I hope I am sometimes making a difference in someone else's life.

Agreed (the sun is going to explode & the earth gone)

but that doesn't mean people should still live by the golden rule.

Technically we are all just stardust, hurtling through the universe. But if that were all there is to it, why do we feel lust, anger, joy, etc? The universe is nothing if not efficient. It makes no sense that we experience life. It’s literally a waste of energy. So there must be a purpose to feeling it.

So I’m going to keep enjoying myself and trying to help others enjoy themselves too. Because that is, quite literally, the matter of life. And should you suddenly decide that you want to enjoy life too, hit me up. I run a twelve step program for nihilists.

@salacia
Maybe fatalism and/or stoicism are too "positive" (not negative enough?), but rehab has never seemed relevant or meaningful. Nor therapy or counseling.
Esoteric philosophy and a few good friends will do me (pun not intended). Well, and scuba.
Life is about connections and experiences, and not much else. So the stardust thing is mostly true.

Time is not linear there like here

What we do in life we also do in the after life. Your life is the trial, your behavior is being judged. Once it's over, your sentence is handed out. Alas, what you do in life echoes an eternity. Whatever you will do, you have already done.

We are of a like mind. If I must hurtle through space, let me be held in deep water.
