Each one of us has come to the conclusion "I exist". Billions of people on the Earth define themselves by their belief systems. I am a Christian, I am an agnostic , I am a etc. etc. As existentialists, we have gone one step further. We see the relativity of belief systems. We are individuals who are capable of many belief systems. We can chose. This has resulted in a freedom from doctrines and dogmas. Now what? What do we do this ability to invent the self? How shall we impact the world?
