I think; sooner or later there will be an end. It should be. From a scientific approach, the Sun will burn out, eventually. In another aspect, there will be an end for all individuals; death. So, our lives are not like the concept of aevum. It will end eventually, but we are living in a denial of this situation.
Creating scenarios about apocalypse might occur because of the desire toward “second chance” or “restarting” ideas. Most of the people create crazy scenarios about what wanted; this might a day dream about saving everyone from a crazy gun-man or about relaxing, but everyone does it. For some men like the ones in Fight Club, a brand new life or start is a dream. Thinking constantly on it causes these absurd scenarios. They have nothing to live for, or a purpose to fight for. They live in a vagabond; a possibility of restart is their heaven. At the very beginning of the class, we talked about a group of people that committed suicide while a meteor passing nearly to the Earth. If they had a purpose or a people to devote for, would they do the same thing? I do not think so. Also, waiting for a close apocalypse is a whole different thing; several results could occur. Firstly, there is Homer effect; you start to get sad and cry about your ending, secondly, there is an unleash effect; you start not to care about the results of what you do, thirdly (I think it is the rarest one), you does not care about ending because you have a complete satisfaction about your life and you continue to live as you do today.
I know, all these scenarios seems crazy; how can a man gets so high that he think dying will cause a rebirth or wants zombies to hunt. However, the conditions lead them into this craziness; the system is their cage and there are two exits; breaking cage or ending your live.
Is there has to be an end? Or do we have to believe it and Make plans? My question about end and our obsession about it creating scenarios while all of us will have our ends. I am wondering while we are making claims do we really believe it ? Or if we do not then why do we wonder about such scenarios?
