Meaning seeking animals
We are meaning seeking animals and while facts are very important, when ones life has been hit hard by some sort of tragedy, facts give little comfort. Philosophy, religion and psychology are used to help give some sort of rhyme and reason to life, but the biggest factor that takes away happiness for many is the reality that in the end all will be lost. Youth, health, loved ones, everything will evaporate into history. I wonder how much of our lives are built around seeking to divert our attention from this reality?
