The true horror of existence (Exurb1a)

   The true horror of existence is not the certainty of death, nor the threat of hell, but the knowledge that we will likely go our entire lives as impossibly complex machines, walking about in an impossibly complex universe, and never truly discover what it was all for.

   I don't know is brave.  I'll never know is heroic.
