Nihilism Quotes: For knowing the meaning of nothing

Nihilism Quotes: For knowing the meaning of nothing

Friedrich Nietzsche is what comes to mind when we say "Nihilism". He's a German philosopher and the one who provided a detailed discretion and diagnosis of nihilism; that all values are baseless and so things are meaningless. It's an extremely pessimistic and full of radical skepticism philosophy that frequently gets criticism for condemning the purpose of existence. As its name says, "Nihilism" comes from the Latin word "Nihil", which means Nothing.

“what are you looking for? There is no Truth. There’s only action, action obeying a million different impulses, ephemeral action, action subjected to every possible and imaginable contingency and contradiction, Life. Life is crime, theft, jealousy, hunger, lies, disgust,stupidity, sickness, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, piles of corpses. what can you do about it, my poor friend?”

“I think human consciousness, is a tragic misstep in evolution. We became too self-aware, nature created an aspect of nature separate from itself, we are creatures that should not exist by natural law. We are things that labor under the illusion of having a self; an accretion of sensory, experience and feeling, programmed with total assurance that we are each somebody, when in fact everybody is nobody. Maybe the honorable thing for our species to do is deny our programming, stop reproducing, walk hand in hand into extinction, one last midnight – brothers and sisters opting out of a raw deal.”

JOHN MARMYSZ

“Though nihilism has been relentlessly criticized for overemphasizing the dark side of human experience, it might be equally true that this overemphasis represents a needed counterbalance to shallow optimism and arrogant confidence in human power. Nihilism reminds us that we are not gods, and that despite all of the accomplishments and wonders of civilization, humans cannot alter the fact that they possess only a finite amount of mastery and control over their own destinies.”

Nihilism Philosophy - How to live in nihilism

Nihilism Philosophy - How to live in nihilism

Nihilism is not a friendly philosophy; it exploits humanity's bad side, and it may irritate you. Except for what we give it, there is no objective order or structure in the world. The nihilist realizes that all values are baseless and that reason is powerless after penetrating the facades that support convictions. But even in Nihilism you can still find something. Active nihilists have a great deal of autonomy in deciding how to conduct their life. It's not easy to figure out what your life's purpose is. It necessitates a delicate balance of stiffness and flexibility.

The world may look distressing, which in fact, it is, as negativity weights more in the force; the act of balancing has no significance, since everyone is technically cynical to each other.
