How the **** is life a lie?

Feels like people are just thumbing this up because it sounds edgy.

It is a lie.
Or at least for all we know it is.

Why do people live? There is no answer. There is no reason we live, but because we continue to live, we are living a lie, telling our selves that there is reason to live.

Or at least that's my interpretation of this.

Shut your mouth and open your eyes: Are you Alive? Sadly yes. Will you die? Yes, thank god. Do you spend every single second of your life thinking about your impending doom? No. You don't. There for life is a beautiful lie because it allows you to lie to yourself and the world and pretend that your death isn't getting closer and closer every single second.

Except I don't think that you little ******. I know very well that I'm going to die and I don't lie to myself about being invincible, but there's no ******* point in thinking about death, because I cant do anything about it. I ******* already covered this with the other guy.

We all know death is there, and waiting - but we choose to ignore it until it happens (with exceptions). We (with exceptions) try to live life to our own ''fullest'', whether this is getting your dream job or going to your dream location. However, what is the point when the end result is always death?

Ignoring it is like calling it a lie, when it is indeed, the end truth to everyone.

As it happens, we could see this like this. If someone is living and someone dear to them lies - they may be in denial. However, the truth is that the person is dead, but it is too painful to bear it.

Just my opinion, anyways.

But that doesn't explain why life would be a lie. We don't choose to ignore it, because you know what's pointless? Thinking about death all the time. The point in living biologically is to reproduce. That's why we don't just kill ourselves when we get bored.

(with exceptions)

If the point is to reproduce, then why do some humans not have children?

I was referring to within one human's self, anyways.

This comic isn't talking about biological means, it's talking about the emotional factor that death is looming and life is stalling.

Some humans don't have children because we are can think more than just basic needs. A ******* dog doesn't think "you know what? having kids would just stop me from following my dreams" most animals just follow their instincts and **** and eat. But we don't we can think abstractly and self consciously. That's why we're called Homo Sapiens Sapiens.

The comic is trying to be deep and failing at it. It's probably made by some 15-year old who could paint well and wanted to do something meaningful.

Life isn't a lie
Death isn't a lie
There is not philosophical meaning to life, we are just as meaningless to the universe as bacteria or dirt.

Well Jesus ******* Christ, calm down, Buzzkillington.

I was going to argue again, but it seems like you won't change your mind because you know you're right

so yeah, great chat and all that.

Why are you still commenting if you said that you wouldn't argue?

I love life, I'm hyped as ****** about it. and I also really like philosophy, but it's very easy to find texts/posts like these that are trying to sound meaningful without having any real meaning. It's just like when swagfags say something like "ill luv 4 ever gurl, it's you nd me vs the wooorld" It's just made to sound nice without making sense.
