Woody Allen gets it. Death makes life meaningless and 99 percent of people are desperately trying to deny this painful truth. Imagine for a second that you cease to exist for the rest of eternity. Nothing you ever did would even matter. You need a consciousness for anything to matter. Leaving a legacy after you die benefits other people while they exist, but it does NOTHING to benefit YOURSELF. The only way to have success is to never die, because that’s the only way you can continue to benefit yourself. It’s absurd to care about the well-being of other people in a universe where you don’t exist. We are INDIVIDUALS. Unless you can preserve your individual consciousness forever, then you failed completely. Having an attitude that is concerned with “leaving the world better off than you left it” is just another way that people cope with death. It’s a lie. Society and tradition tries to convince us that we should be content with sacrificing ourselves for the sake of future generations. That’s nonsense! WE are what matter most — not future people.
