Everything is meaningless...
Ok...about the petroleum thing...let's say the world is temporary (which it basically is), and identity is an illusion, then everything is meaningless, and it doesn't matter if we use petroluem, and that's got me very confused.
I've been reading this book by Caterine Vauban. She says that nothing's connected, so you can do whatever you want, drive a car, burn up gas - which would explain the way things actually are. Where people do destructive things like it doesn't matter.
I need to get new tires for my bike.
