the world's a stage and we're actors. the question is, are we improvising or do we have a script?
Well definitely read Siddhartha by Hesse or With the Flow by Huysmans if you have not already. The all-consuming force is the God that created the world in which we live, the greedy and corrupt God, who only thinks of "me me me munny munny munny". The rest of us are trying to eke out some kind of meaning from whatever scraps we are allowed in His masturbatory fantasy.
