I’d like to know if there has been anyone that has taken my point of view on this so I can read him.
Some kind of relativism based on the belief that everything follows the physical laws of the universe; so everything we understand as special, such as the models that we have based our society upon and which we seek in life (becoming the president of my country is meaningful for my life), the notion of “creativity” as a separate reality where the potentially existing exists, and the thought that meditation or drugs can alter reality when in fact what is altering is our perception of it, is nonexistent; they are just a result of our inherent desire to create such alternate reality that would give us some kind of purpose.
Our brain follows the physical and chemical laws of the universe and so everything it produces can’t escape them, either. And based on that, whatever we choose to do with our lives will only matter to us as an individual. We as a species are only the result of the development of such laws throughout millions of years; in the grand scheme of the universe we are just meaningless. When adopting the point of view of the universe, we realize that only when we understand its purpose and its cause, will we be able to understand our own, as we are just a product of it.
Searching a bit on the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, and apart from Camus (as he just proposed the notion of the absurd and said to embrace it and continue living enjoying the empirical life) and Sartre (which to my knowledge proposes something contrary to what I said), I found in the entry for meaning of life the last paragraph about Thomas Nigel, who seems to say just this; but it’s the first time I read about him and I don’t know if he’s a relevant author in Philosophy.
