  1. Despite the Buddhist claim that “Life is suffering” (because humankind is the only life aware of death), the Montaigne quote sharpens perspective where it matters most—and suggests an antidote: meaning doesn’t exist “out there” in the world’s/universe’s absurdity and utter indifference toward “us,” but can be found only within stripped of those even deeper absurdities religion, politics, and infantile ego.
