warning, the following is a seriously red pilled position, if you are not in full, disciplined control of your third eye you probably can’t handle it ahem, Life itself is in contradiction with the inhospitable conditions of the material universe. Life pushes against the ceaseless destruction, somehow. As it does, it adapts parts of the destructive process, takes them on board, thus it does not destroy destruction, rather it takes on parts of it, until life is capable of its own destructions. It synthesises that destruction into its own being, and thus is able to evolve through the destruction of other competitive life. With humans of course, the key destructive capacity they found was teamwork, which lifted them above other forms of life. Fitting then, man is intent on his own destruction to a huge degree. He can never escape it.
The evolution of man is nothing but the life pushing against death, and the two resolving into a series of temporary compromises.
Why is there something rather than nothing? Existence itself is in contradiction with none existence. If there is something, there must also be nothing or what is something? Or, there is only endless something, but endlessness is an impossibly unless it is an endless nothing.
