Life is absurd might mean that some of the things, arguments, or problems we encounter in life are pointless and really do nothing but set us back or depress us. Some people might feel, I know I certainly do not, that life is pointless because of this absurdity. They might feel like fate is working against them just to make things more difficult for them. They also might feel that life is meaningless in that if they accomplish something, 100 years from then it will be pointless since they’ll be dead. We can’t answer the question why we are here and why we are on Earth. Also, people cannot prevent random events from happening and these things might prevent us from doing what we want or accomplishing our ideas. Why would having a different life even matter if we are all going to die. The world itself is irrational, inhospitable, and, at times, hostile.
