I don't know how this works....but it's awesome. Seriously. Watch it.
At 1904 pages, this is likely the longest suicide note in history.
A young man comes to the conclusion that the illusion of meaning is created by self-perpetuating biases introduced over time by evolution and realizes that he wants to have no part in it. Adopting this strong nihilistic stance (that he develops in his suicide note in great length), he eventually acts on it. He calls it "rational self-destruction"
A rational position?
What conclusions do you take away from this?
Is philosophy dangerous?
Having read some of it, I can attest to the fact that this is truly a remarkable document. As to the question whether it should be read or shared - the author explicitly expresses his hopes that his arguments will be a given a fair hearing and that his work will be judged on his merits whereas he fully expects it to be repressed (given his understanding of the world).
