The word subjectivism has two meanings, and our opponents play on the two. Subjectivism means, on the one hand, that an individual chooses and makes himself; and, on the other, that it is impossible for man to transcend human subjectivity. The second of these is the essential meaning of existentialism. When we say that man chooses his own self, we mean that every one of us does likewise; but we also mean by that that in making this choice he also chooses all men. In fact, in creating the man that we want to be, there is not a single one of our acts which does not at the same times create an image of man as we think he ought to be. To choose to be this or that is to affirm at the same time the value of what we choose, because we can never choose evil. We always choose the good, and nothing can be good for us without being good for all.

currently working on how to make my comic book built on the early Gnostic Christian teachings starring Jesus Christ as a alien/human hybrid stranded on Earth with powers rooted in the dark arts reflect an absurdist philosophy while simultaneously accepting a specific hierarchy of extradimensional god-like beings and allowing myself the opportunity to explore any avenue of the paranormal on a whim

world building is hard as shit you guys

He watched Lewis slip down the embankment and board the boat; then he looked at the sky once more. Men had gone out there, he thought in wonder, and he couldn’t think why. Singly and in small groups they had gone into strange lands, across wide seas, had climbed mountains where no human foot had ever trod. And he couldn’t think why they had done those things. What impulse had driven them from their own kind to perish alone, or among strangers? All those ruined houses they had seen, like the old Sumner house in the valley, designed for one, two, three people, lived in by so few people, deliberately isolating themselves from others of their own kind. Why?

what I’m trying to say is that negativity and pessimism are probably the most boring character attributes a person can have and I’d like to start making a genuine effort to fight them off in my own life
