This book analyzes how imagination, nihilism, and the human condition create the meaning and purpose of life.
This book presents an analysis of how we are between what our imagination creates and nihilism, which is the non-existence of everything. The author explores science, religion, and philosophy as solutions to the meaning and purpose of life as well as the ideologies they create. The unique faculty of imagination in homo sapiens is part of the development of cognitive abilities throughout history, and any reality is an integration of experiences and imagination we create.
