Description

Nihilism: (from the Latin nihil, nothing) is a philosophical position which argues that the world, especially past and current human existence, is without objective meaning, purpose, comprehensible truth, or essential value. Nihilists generally assert some or all of the following: there is no reasonable proof of the existence of a higher ruler or creator, a "true morality" does not exist, and secular ethics are impossible; therefore, life has no truth, and no action can be preferable to any other.

I was searching articles on this interesting philosophical position (which I discovered after a long journey through illusions). It's exactly what I felt when I first read a nihilist essay: paradoxal satisfaction of seeing confirmation that I'm not the only one to feel the emptiness of the human society.
