That's his logic for dong random stuff?Guru-45 (talk) 16:33, 10 March 2013 (UTC)

He is saying that climbing a tree is as reasonable a response to nihilism as acting all mopey and depressed. 03:21, 27 August 2013 (UTC)
And also suggesting that it is the better option (or at least the one he'd rather be doing) of the two. 22:00, 12 October 2015 (UTC)

And he is soooo correct. I wish I knew now what a waste of time worrying about certain things happening or not happening would wind up being. I wish I'd spent more time climbing trees or doing other things that made me feel happy or that I had fun doing instead of worrying about how I would look to others doing so. Life should come with a users manual or at least a FAQ or something. I know, I know there's lots of books out there that attempt to do that but I mean one that you KNOW is true because it was written for YOU. 10:37, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

You are basically talking about a religious text since many of those claim to be written for your salvation/enlightenment/well-being. A lot of people claim that something must be true because it reflects their experiences perfectly. -- Flewk (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

You might as well not bother being nihilistic. It's not like you'll accomplish anything by it. 21:03, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

I found this while reading about absurdism, my own philosophy. I would assume that the beret guy is in fact an absurdist, which is slightly different from nihilism. Would this be correct?
