@Deepsealioness - here it goes - I'm an amateur philosopher (interested in rhetoric, fallacies and arguments - sophist style) and an aspiring travel writer. I've roadtipped over 75% of the contiguous U.S; trekked, camped and climbed in over 10 national parks there.
I'm recently unemployed; quit my job in the U.S and moved back home (Chennai) to write about my other travel experience ces/stories and consult here. I love discourses on religion, ethics and morality, colonialism and cricket.
We can't tolerate the truth, because we know everything is futile. We create attachments and we develop finite things (technology, food, etc) because we are weak, because we found ourselves here against our wish and we are scared, we want to fool ourselves that everything is fine and normal, but if we only think purely, it is clear that life is senseless and time, space, infinity transcend our power.
We have nothing to do here apart from nonsensical finite activities. We buy food in order to maintain an organism which will be annihilated by time anyways.
We buy all this expensive stuff in order to fulfill an ego based on social norms deeply impregnated in our subconsciousness, which cannot stand the real boredom of life, which cannot stand the truth, the pointlessness of life.
#caste101 If you want to understand the caste system and the history of India's anti-caste movement, B R Ambedkar is the most important figure. You can read all his collected works here #india https://www.mea.gov.in/books-writings-of-ambedkar.htm
