Humans as well

2 years, 3 months ago

there was a post the other day about how nothing has meaning unless we assign it meaning, I think this includes humans as well.

people think, of course human have meaning, as if it were inherent, but this is not true.

we feel this way because humans are simply more relatable than any other object,

consider what has meaning in your life, now consider how familiar you are with the object/person, is there a correlation?

now, consider if you were to bring said item to another individual, would they feel the same meaning?

no

humans must intentionally assign meaning to other humans, not simply expect it to be there,

often, when they don’t feel it, they dismiss the human as if it were their fault

@tine,
Examine it from this view:
The entire universe is a dream. Your dream. The product of your imagination. Therefore everyone you have ever met, known, loved, hated, is just a product of your imagination. Consequently, since none of them actually exist, none of them have any meaning whatsoever, other than the value your mind places on them within the dream.

Conversely, if the entire world is not a product of anyone’s imagination, then all humans actually do exist outside of your mind. If this is true, then it is safe to say that human beings DO have a ‘relative’ value. While it does have somewhat to do with the value you and others place on the individual, there are other factors that come into play that also rely on relative valuing. Such as: How do they affect their environment/community? Do they improve/degrade the standard of living wherever they go? Do they improve/degrade the quality of nature in their surroundings? Do any animals value their existence, or depend on them to survive? <If that's the case, what value would you place on said animal? Pretty much relative valuing depends mostly on the individuals reputation. I could go on, but I presume you get my point, since I'm only reinforcing your point.

All that being said, you are absolutely right in saying that no human has any inherent value, therefore I suggest you go on a killing spree just for shits&giggles :)
