eXistence


A philosopher once said, "Nothing exists. It is a falsehood to equate the life span of a human with the concept of 'existence'. From birth to death, a human is merely a bio-mechanism that survives for a short period of time then perishes, very much like a mosquito, only longer. A human does not 'exist', because existence implies 'a will to be born'. None of us, that I know of, were consulted upon when we were conceived and brought into this world. If we throw out the notion of human existence, we can perhaps begin to experience the jubilation of being."

A fairly smart and eloquent man, that philosopher, yet, like the rest of us, he does not exist.
