“Consciousness is a being, the nature of which is to be conscious of the nothingness of its being.”
Jean Paul Sartre – Being and Nothingness
I have no idea what Sartre means. I once read a book by Sartre titled The Transcendence of the Ego for a philosophy class. I even wrote a paper about it though I couldn’t understand a word.
What I do know is that the the morning after a full moon like the one we had last night, I wake up thinking about things like this and wonder what the psychiatry wards and prisons were like last night.
