Artist's Description

“How do you keep fighting when nothing matters?”

Ron looked surprised. “I’m not sure I can say that nothing matters. Don’t you ever get angry? That’s what I do.”

“I get angry, but then I remember that anger is another illusion.”

“Ehh…” Ron shrugged. “I’m not a nihilist.”

His friend grimaced. “You’re either a nihilist or you’re in denial. What makes life meaningful?”

Cam opened her mouth to speak. Ron was already thrusting one hand into her face, saying matter-of-factly, “Doing meaningful things with your life.”

A moment of frustrated sputtering. “You aren’t following that through logically. What difference does it make if you fight the Ex-D or spend your life as a lotus-eater? What difference does it make that those D-hops died today — what difference would it have made if you’d saved them all? None, man. In a trillion years, it won’t make a difference. You can’t do meaningful things because there is no meaning.”

Ron grinned. “So much angst, dude. It’s like you’re trying to argue that there should be meaning.”
