Sick Joke

A Life that seeks finds essential meaning in suffering and death is a shadow life, a sick joke.

Out, out brief candle. Life’s but a walking shadow… It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
William Shakespeare

Being is time and time is finite, it comes to an end with our death. Therefore, if we want to understand what it means to be an authentic human being, then it is essential that we constantly project our lives onto the horizon of our death, what Heidegger calls “being-towards-death”.
Simon Critchley
