Who is this Button for?
Moderns who know that nothing means anything.
She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word. To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
(Shakespeare, W. The Tragedy of Macbeth)
Scene in movie Play it again Sam. (Allan Felix, played by Woody Allen, tries to pick up a pretty girl at an art gallery.)
Felix: That's quite a lovely Jackson Pollock, isn't it?
Girl: Yes, it is.
Felix: What does it say to you?
Girl: It restates the negativeness of the universe. The hideous, lonely emptiness of existence. Nothingness.The predicament of man forced to live in a barren, godless eternity Iike a tiny flame flickering in an immense void with nothing but waste, horror and degradation forming a useless straightjacket in a black absurd cosmos.
Felix: What are you doing Saturday night?
Girl: Committing suicide.
Felix: What about Friday night?
Something to consider
