Default Worthless


Clichť after clichť. The days, the years go by.
You drink water, eat, sleep, shit, fuck, die.

The need to achieve will be the death of you.
The truth is you are here to make more humans.
That’s all.
You create stories, and gods, and art, but they are worthless in the grand scheme of things.

Nothing’s worth anything, when you think of it.
Money has value only because people say it does.
The Earth will be swallowed by the Sun with all the art and technology.
Humans may escape but only to make more things that don’t matter in insignificant places.
The Sun will become a white dwarf.
The universe will expand and eventually everything will be floating in the cold vastness of space, close to nothing.

Lost.
And worthless.

I guess I’m feeling a bit nihilistic tonight.
