Title is vague.
Anyway, I didn’t want to hijack a thread in which I expressed an enjoyment of the film Fight Club. So here it is.
Since a youth I’ve questioned my existence, as did you unless you’re sheeple. I can recall numerous occasion in where I would lay in bed at night, staring at the ceiling scared, just scared. Prepubescent thoughts of the world outside of the confines of a Middle American home that my parents built for my brothers and I, I being the youngest of the four.
Fast forward 6 years; age 13. I hypothesize that existence could be infinite and exponentially planar according to your experiences and to test my theory I would begin to experiment with drugs and alcohol, a little bit of pot and not as much alcohol, just experimental amounts.
Now this might sound like I was way to conscious of my surroundings, but when I think back, my resentment of the world would only be surpassed by my med free A.D.D. diagnosis which was hidden from me, by my parents until last week. I’m glad they did that. Infact my immediate response to my mother telling me this was “It’s not A.D.D., it’s hypersensitivity to my surroundings.” Which to me has always translated to heightened consciousness.
Long story short, I come to explore psychology, sociology, and philosophy. I accept and study three different religions by the time I’m 16 and flush them all down the shitter, one after the other. Recently accepted that I’m atheist (1 year ago) and realize that I’ve always been existentialist. Come to know of Nihilism (Existentialism on Steroids) and become partial to it and incorporate it into my beliefs.
Chuck Palahniuk, gay as he is, has a knack for writing. Tyler Durden is his antagonist advocating Nihilism. The movie was well directed. Explain why this movie sucks here.
