We are extremely limited. Temporally, spatially, cognitively. We are mortal and susceptible to all kinds of negative things. Naturally, this arises the question of the meaning of life and our quest for meaning: what could possibly justify our predicament? Why do we have to exist?

Yet, we do not find much meaning in life. If meaning is to be understood as having some kind of a positive impact on the world (on others) and having some worthwhile purpose, then there is little meaning in our lives. Compare your life with the life of Einstein, for example. This nigga made has made a huge impact on the whole humanity with his scientific findings. He also had a wife and a good quality of life I suppose. But what about the most of us? We can hardly make an impact on anyone who is not a member of our family or maybe some other relatively small and local human group. We are completely dispensable. If one of us dies nothing will change on the grand scale level and nobody is going to care except maybe just a few people.
We will probably never make a huge impact on humanity as a whole. And certainly nobody can make an impact beyond our planet, so even the life of Einstein is cosmically meaningless.

All our purposes are limited in scope. Soon enough we will all be dead and forgotten. It also seems that the Planet itself is destined to be absorbed by the Sun. And the whole universe is going to face the heat death (or whatever the fuck). Seems like there are ultimate events which we cannot impact or affect and the fate of humanity as a whole is sealed. Our individual fates are sealed too. No matter what you do and how you live your life the end is going to be the same - death and non-existence.

Life is pretty much absurd. We live in a cold and indifferent universe and nothing that we do here makes a permanent difference. We exist for no purpose, we are the result of blind evolutionary necessity. There's just no purpose to our existence and it doesn't really matter what we do when we adopt a cosmic perspective. Yet, we see everything we do as extremely important and meaningful and worry so much about it. When in reality we are not that significant and what we do is pretty much meaningless or futile.

If we were not limited in so many ways - if we were immortals with greater intellectual abilities for example - we wouldn't really care so much about life's meaning. Yet, we are indeed extremely limited, we are looking for ways to transcend these limits by leaving a mark of some sort. Yet, we fail to transcend the ultimate limits of human mortality. The universe itself is inevitably going to 'die'. Being unable to transcend these limits makes life pretty much meaningless or futile.

We could imagine a different scenario where life would be much better. If we were immortal we wouldn't even have the need to 'leave a mark' - our personal goals aimed at ourselves could probably suffice. Yet, we do not live in such a scenario. That's a good reason to be sad and unsatisfied with this life.

That's all.

Immortality as in not dying would eventually become an absolute nightmare and existence an inescapable prison.
No, if an infitine amount of different combinations of different things in the world would be available for us to ponder. In other words, an infinite life full of intellectual inquiry. It wouldn't be boring. You can imagine other scenarios where we could live infinitely yet experience only neutral or positive mental states.

Every once novel cope gets stale over even a normal human lifespan, it‘s ridiculous to think that one could entertain themselves for hundreds let alone billions of years.
Your whole existential paragraph has been a topic for humanity since its very beginning in one form or another with little to no progress in that field.
There‘s nothing new under the sun and in even only 25 yrs on this planet I‘ve grown to despise things I’ve onced loved. Familiarity breeds contempt, as they say.

It's ridiculous to assume so given our current cognitive limits, that's true. But not if we were closer to perfection.
What I am getting at, essentially, is this: it is ridiculous to imagine how God - the most perfect being would suffer from boredom and look for life's meaning. The nigga has no limits he's perfectly content. So, the closer we could be to that state the better life would be. From my perspective

Sure. 实践是检验真理的唯一标准。检验真理的标准只能是社会实践,理论与实践的统一是马克思主义的一个最基本的原则,任何理论都要不断接受实践的检验。有的同志担心,坚持实践是检验真理的标准,会削弱理论的意义。这种担心是多余的。凡是科学的理论,都不会害怕实践的检验。相反,只有坚持实践是检验真理的标准,才能够使伪科学、伪理论现出原形,从而捍卫真正的科学与理论。

This is good but what is best in life?
-The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist with wind in your hair.
Wrong! Conan what is best in life?
-To crush your enemies, see them driven before you and they hear the lamentation of their women.
That is good

Extreme nihilism is a good concept to strum by. Read some Nietzsche and then you will realize the scope of a well developed mind in that realm. Philosophy will always be accounted by the human brain, we will never escape it until we all die someday.

I'm 41 years old NEET guy from Indonesia. Tbh, I've almost never opened this forum, & never posted/commented anything. But THIS one thread post that I've accidentally happened to just find out, this is such a very underrated thread/post, that honestly I'm even surprised to find there is finally one smart, thoughtful, deep, detailed, brutally real raw honest, existential philosophical nihilistic thread post here in this forum. I've never expected that at all!

I can deeply relate & agree with this thread post. Yes it's nihilistic, but it's also pessimistic (with its related philosophies such as: antinatalism, efilism, promortalism, extinctionism, depressive realism, philosophical pessimism). But the OP of this thread/post probably (if he/she is just like me) have also experienced what's called the existential crisis (or even the existential depression). I've had it for a long time, 10+ years, even almost 20 years.

Unfortunately, human's nature with its survival instincts especially will NOT want anything to do with any all of this 'existential' deep thinking. People will try to do ANYTHING just to keep surviving, keep living, no matter what. Even if it's at the cost of delusions, ignorance, stupidity, and in today's "modern 21st century" era especially, all those toxic positivity & optimism bias everywhere.

We're both just a tiny few minority, sadly. And "life goes on" as if nothing happened.

I never understood existential thread; there‘s no point being afraid of the inevitable.
Absolutely insane levels of cope. Obviously I'm sure everyone is imagining an off switch when they fantasize about immortality. But I mean realistically how long will it take for you to get bored? There's always something new to do.

You could even incorporate regularly having your mind wiped to eliminate the boredom problem lol. Or just fall asleep every night so you can kind of have a "mini-death " . Both better solutions than infinite nothingness
