What's important in life - Happiness? Knowing yourself? Finding truth?
What are worthy ideals?
Merely by my sentience, I am forced to give reason to my thoughts and actions. Yet no reason is pure, all is fallible to perception. Only nothing, non-existence, is pure, perfect, objective and absolute. Existing is an act that betrays these qualities, so that nothing that exists can ever be fully true. This, to me, seems to be the great paradox of our existence - that we exist and devote our lives to the pursuit of these impossible ideals.
But to realize this in my own mind is to know truth - to know that truth cannot exist. Truth is the perfection and purity that underlies and gives rise to the arbitrary, random chaos of our existence - the nothing that gave rise to something.
