Nihilism

From this Twitter thread in early 2019.

Nihilism is an abomination.

Nihilism is like realizing the sky isn’t green, and building a life and identity based on this “profound truth”.

Like, so what? It’s obvious. What about the myriad disciplines of constructing meaning that humanity has developed to circumvent the lack of an intrinsic one, and thrive together?

If you’ve ever used words in your life, you’ve used a platform for constructing meaning that others developed.
