These days, just about anything you do will be pointless. You are the frog in the pot thinking of so many potential tomorrows. I answered all of my philosophy questions long ago, currently seeking a practical tie between theory and current situation.
I might be more tempted to call it "last desperate hope" rather than "comfort".Kingkool wrote:Are you here because you feel comfort in the fact that people care enough to even search in the first place?

A fear/hope of the known drives most of my endeavors.
But don't confuse philosophy with much of what goes on in philosophy forums.
