Once there was a Great king Sisyphus with a great desire to overcome death for the sake of his life and the life of his people. So to accomplish his purpose he led a conspiracy and somehow managed to defy the God of Death and put him in chains and thus stopping the process of death and now no people died.

Gods got furious at him and they decided to punish the fellow with the punishment of eternity , as per which he had to roll a huge rock up a steep mountain for the rock to fall again and again till eternity. He would have to push a rock up a mountain; upon reaching the top, the rock would roll down again, leaving Sisyphus to start over.

Here, Sisyphus is the absurd hero who lives life to the fullest, hates death, and is condemned to a meaningless task. He starts taking pride in it, the more he fails the more he tries only to loose again. The ego of self pushed him into more delusion each time he failed.

Above story was deeply observed by Albert Camus and he came to the conclusion of how absurd the life is, there is no meaning of life at all as there is no meaning of existence of universe.

Think carefully keeping all your perceived perceptions beside if there is any meaning of anything you do. The simple answer that you are going to get is a big No, because in a matter of seconds we call all be blown up , A small misconception and the nuclear attack begins or a solar blast or maybe an asteroid hit us and nothing will be left there shall be no-one to put a record on your achievements and all that you earned working your rock hard will vanish with no one to embrace.

Does going to a 9-5 job six days a week for 40-50 years of life not seem meaningless if you don’t get anything out of it ! 

Approx 99.99% of people do the same thing as Sisyphus, rolling the same rock again and again with no end to see and ultimately Die. Isn’t it quite absurd ? by absurd I don’t mean ”logically possible” but humanly possible”. The absurd lies in the juxtaposition between the fundamental human need to attribute meaning to life and the “unreasonable silence” of the universe in response.

So, What’s the solution?

basically there are three ways to tackle the Absurdity of life:-

  1. Suicide. yes you heard it right, suicide is a momentary solution to the confusion created by the illusion of universe. BUT, this creates further more Absurdity as you have no predictable case of where are you going to land or would you?
  2. Leap of faith. People need to follow some kind of faith be it religious, social or ideas. This seems a bit more relieving as you shall have an explanation to things happening and not happening at all based on the ladder you follow. But intelligently speaking, as per me this would be a Philosophical murder following any faith blindly and accepting things beyond logical explanation.
  3. Acceptance of absurd, yes this seems a bit logical. Accept that things are absurd and with no meaning. This acceptance would give you FREEDOM of purpose when you find no meaning. The only way would be to Revolt with the absurd with acceptance, find meaning out of the meaningless with logical thinking and analysis of universe.

And in this case if you die with no answers at all you will have the explanation of this as the great great ABSURDISM.


Find the meaning , Be a seeker , try to understand things and you will find at the end the greatest nectar of Truth with a realization with a death of the previous you.

 The universe is quite big and Absurd enough to not think.
