Midnight Run

Thursday, January 12, 2012

Just as it may be impossible to find pure meaning, it has become just as impossible to deny it, as the very denial, taken to the extreme of principle, will be construed as meaning itself.  The more we run, the more the fleeing defines us.  Who is more in thrall to God than the atheist?

But is this the truth of things or an external imposition by those who can’t fathom pure meaninglessness.  Whether it is a darkness so bleak its terror leaks into our bones or a brightness that is scarring, we can’t help but turn away and imagine something in the nothing. You exist, therefore you must mean something.

But is your attempt to lay a template of meaning on me just a testament to your blindness?
