Thus, in Scho’s view, one is forced to choose a path; if the requirements for living are not meant; end it!
Schopenhauer’s view solves the problem for overpopulation
Thomas Nagel “Neeeeegro Atheist"
Life is absurd = doesn’t matter = isn’t worth living = there is no meaning of life = Nihilism
The Termporal Argument
P1 : If there’s an immanent meaning of life, then life must have consequences that reach forever into
the future of the immanent realm.
P2 : Life can’t have consequences that reach forever into the future of the imminent realm.
Conclusion : There is no immanent meaning of life
