An Introduction To Nihilism

There’s a camera in every single room, and they document every single move. That’s not science fiction, it’s the reality of daily life. I wonder what the value is, when it’s all added up, of each twitch and each action, caught and captured and translated into 1s and 0s.

I’m assuming the value is closer to 0 than 1.

When every moment is considered to have meaning, I wonder if any of them do? I wonder if the world matters a little less, the more we elevate coffee, train stations, backyard sports, iPhone purchases and candid portraits to the same entertainment level as wild fires, chemical warfare and international diplomacy.

Existence isn’t meaningless, but we’ve designed it to be.
