Storyboard Text

  • I have come to realize that nothing truly matters in life, everything we do is insignificant. Everything we create, do, or love; none of it has any meaning.
  • But why do you think like this? Of course life has meaning! Think of all the good things in life we have to look forward to. Each one of us is on our own journey of self-discovery.
  • Just as Nietzsche stated, "Every belief, every considering something true, is necessarily false because there is simply no true world". Through this, it is obvious that there is no aim to our lives, except what we make for ourselves.
  • I see- you simply believe in Nothingness. Is it not better to pray and give thanks to God rather than feel over thinking?
  • I rather live by Nietzsche's ideology that every value and belief is inevitably false, as no true world exists.
  • Hmm, maybe we don't have to see the world in binary categories. People either believe that there is a moral good we must obey or that there are no rules or categories to live by, making life pointless.
  • Nihilists may have a point with their middle ground way of thinking.
  • I have come to this different rationalization of the world through examining what is right and real while going beyond the basic level of human thought developed by society and delving into the highest degree of contemplation.
  • You see, everyone sees this way of thinking as the death of religion and culture, but it really encourages a reality-based attitude that forms a basis for ethical choices to be made.
  • I see what you mean- normally in society, control-oriented systems form people's thoughts, while this philosophy focuses on the relationship between one's actions and the effect they have on reality.
  • Exactly, from there a new spectrum of choice develops, which allows individuals to make decisions between scientific or moral and religious approaches to issues such as human development.
  • I do agree with you in that sense. Most have accepted systems of thought imposed on us by degenerated value systems. This could help many re-evaluate their values and achieve self-discipline of the mind.
