From ourselves physically, to those around us emotionally, to the way in which we perceive the entirety of the world everything it eventually changes...

  • Good Old Days
    300 words
    "The good old days", is such a great statement. It is really nice to hear older people talk about their lives before a time that I have not known. Some older than me would refer to "the good old days", as maybe an entire decade or certain period in time. I would love to know what it would have been like in the 60's, but I don't think I would have wanted to live during that time. I would have loved to see real knights, and kings, and queens with large castles. I would have liked to experience man...

  • Feeling Of A Non Changing World
    2,257 words
    Nauseated Strangers Existentialists mean that we can't rationalize, since we can't explain human fear, anguish, and pain. To rationalize is absurd, because in the final analysis, we will find nothing. Life is absurd. This leads to the term Nothingness. Thus, since we can't find a meaning of life more than what we attempt to create by ourselves, we anguish. Living in the same era, Camus and Sartre individually helped to form the school of existentialism. Of course there were others: Kierkegaard, ...
