Life! What’s it all about? What’s the right way to live? What’s the meaning of it all?
As the soapy water drips down over your eye lids the minds eye opens wide to ponder life, the universe and our place in it. Like Socrates, Aristotle, Marcus Aurelius and all the other great philosophers throughout history who have bathed in the foggy light of self-knowledge before you. It’s now your turn to grapple with the slippery soap bar of philosophy. Are we mere cogs in the wheelhouse of a deterministic universe or are we thrown into the morass of life and left to fend for ourselves with only our free will to guide us? Is there a secular morality which we can carve out for ourselves using the fine scalpel of objectivity? Or do we settle for consequentialism as we swim in a post-modern, relativistic house of bathroom mirrors where any discrimination between truth and falsehood or good and evil are rendered pointless and naive?
What is the difference between morality and aesthetics? Who cares? Well, we know it’s not our place to play favourites but if you have read this far then congratulations, you do! These questions will forever be open to the mind of each and every one of us and stares us in the face no matter where we are, during every passing second of every minute of every hour of every day of every week of every month of every year and for every lifetime of every person who has ever had or who ever will have the privilege of experiencing existence as a sentient, self-aware entity anywhere in the universe. Question authority. Question everything. Question the questioner and the premise of the questions themselves! Doing so is certainly no pre-requisite for happiness. But if you do choose to pick up the gauntlet then take the time to prepare yourself before charging onto the battlefield of ideas. It can get rough out there. Beware the straw-man arguments and the ad hominem attacks.
Always define your terms while navigating through the conversation. And as you finally dry off from your daily submergence of warm reason and clean, cold logic always remember that in the eternal struggle to find virtue and understanding, in the long run, the pen is always mightier than the sword!
