I think I'm understanding an aspect of absurdism or what absurdism almost means. Granted I am still unfamiliar with certain parts of it, but bear with me. For instance it's absurd to search for the meaning of life because there is no meaning. There never will be. Seeking the meaning of life only results in subjective conclusions yet many believe life has a meaning even when they can't find it. That's absurd.

Well...

It depends. It might be a waste of time to search for an all-purpose, all-encompassing meaning of life. But that doesn't then mean you can't live a life that is filled with very profound meaning, to you.
