The emptiness, beware.

This world is, to quote many an existenialist, "absurd". Each interaction/situation/setting reinforces the feeling that life may be based soley on our empty relations with other members of the species. This detached lonley existence is the existential life. living as though the world is a play or a movie acting out in front of you, the major characters being the influences in your life. what are these influences what are they influencing? this emptiness?
: The Key to understanding the world around you and navigating you way through it is a hard one to pinpoint. Each of us, the questioner, lonley one, the searcher, the existentialist, is on a long subjective journey. You must find your own way through the scenery of life and make an existence that brings meaning to your life as well as to the emptiness you inhabit. A difficult task, a life altering desicion to choose to take on the task, a worthwile meaningful acheivement to complete the task.
IN short Live, do not choose to rot in the existence of the emptiness, create meaning an move it to the place that is empty to make it your own. LIve. choose. acheive. flourish.
