    I’m not sure I agree with some of the conclusions: ultimately he tries to project his pathology onto everyone. It’s a little sad that he rationalises his misery to such an extent that he is completely trapped in his own prison, but I have to respect the dept

I struggle with the very long phrases in this book, and need my dictionary close at any rate.

I have read reviews which suggest this book is not one to read if you re in a bad place and I would agree that is the case if you somehow take solace in God or the fundamental decency of humanity Since it s unlikely anyone of that description will be so much as considering this title I would actually describe it as life affirming in a bizarre type of way and for me has been a fulcrum for a ton of ideas For Ligotti finds an outlet for his anxiety in a logical thought progression evolving a theory which makes absolute sense until you consider the alternative It s written in a very engaging way for a book about how everyone is better off not existing at all you can tell he s than an academic writer I actually found myself laughing out loud in patches because Ligotti s pessamistic cynicism is expressed so deliciously It also gives plenty of jumping off points to explore Nihilistic thought a little further And that s the thing please don t stop at this book because that really will sap your will to live Read The Myth of Sisyphus for example It s life s absurdity that cold logic should be so cruel until you factor in the mystery of Being of our thoughts and feelings and lives and beliefs and values and hobbies mattering to US the profundity of emotions whatever form they take

I m not an avid reader of philosophy for I generally find it to be an exercise of egotism which thus makes me ask Well who the hell are you I find myself much interested in the philosophers who write literature and so I ll dig nicely into a Camus novel or short story over his philosophical writing and the same with Sartre Rand is an exception here because I think she defines for me why fiction proves stronger than philosophical rambling for Rand s fiction is a mere conceit to spout philosophy while a story like Camus s The Guest refines itself to the world it has created so while the story may be informed by the author s philosophy it is not limited to it as a story progresses through action and imagery rather than exposition and thus can speak widely I am definitely on the fence about Hesse tending towards putting him in the Rand campAll of this is to say that I find Ligotti s musings on pessimism suare in the camp of egotism While a good personal essay often confronts its egotism and at least uestions if not undermines it philosophy tends to trudge forward through assertion rather than uestioning its own necessity This attitude pretty rife in Ligotti s work here as well from the very introduction also makes philosophy a very privileged exercise as the life of the mind smacks very much of patriarchy and having the freedom to exercise that aloneGranted there are slight moments where Ligotti offers up a humorous tone ie how when talking about suffering he calls it the last item on the list of our species obsessions and detract from everything that matters to us such as the Good the Beautiful and a Sparkling Clean Toilet Bowl and of this tone might have undercut the pervasive privilege embedded in these ruminations but the final straw for me was overlooking HP Lovecraft s racism which to me sealed the deal and put this book suare in the realm of white patriarchy

STOP Read the title of this review again Do you see what is going on here The uestion answers itself What do you want Answer out of life Birth itself should be evidence enough to anyone as to having lost in the genetic lottery The fortunate are the not born though they will never be aware of their good fortune The unfortunates are those who are born and painfully aware of it of birth and its conseuences condemned to both a life sentence and a death sentence only human existence could contain and condemn us to such a tragic irony Consciousness is a distortion of existence and creates an experience of tension and struggle In terms of existence consciousness is derivative secondary and actually parasitic This renders existence itself a burden We are victimized by Fate tyrannized by evolution and cursed by genetics This tortured existence is the root of our tormented human experienceThe only defense is not to be fooled by hope or to be made a fool out of by hope Our best chance at ethics is when we see each other as the fellow prisoners thrown into a world that refuses to reveal itself to us and that will always retain some hidden features just beyond our grasp no matter how much we come to understand In terms of the overall conspiracy the only important feature of our existence revealed to us is the permanent inscrutability of our existence in a blank anonymous and indifferent world If you have read this far then I am sorry because you cannot unread this review or unlearn these most fundamental principles of human existence unless you prefer to live in state of self deception as most people need to do so you might as well continue and read this book explore the darkness and learn just how deep the conspiracy against the human race runs but you may not like what you find Alternatively it may confirm what you already suspect On the bright side at least the human race is not totally bereft and barren it at least begets confusion contradiction and conspiracy In any case just understand that writer of this review is one who is in a state of existence without Being who walks alone without purpose through a broken world
