I am of the opinion that pretty much everything we do is in service of the delusion that our lives have meaning and that the stuff that we spend so much time worrying and complaining about actually matters when deep down we know that it’s all empty and futile, a grand charade we perpetuate in order to distract ourselves from the certainty of death, so I am the natural audience for anything that argues that people who constantly broadcast just how busy their enormously complicated, task-heavy lives keep them might not actually be breaking under that crushing burden.
