I’m more existential than I thought

31 03 2007

Even though it doesn’t really count because I’m not a philosopher, it’s good to know that my own personal mish-mash of thoughts and opinions seems to point towards something.

You scored as Existentialism. Your life is guided by the concept of Existentialism: You choose the meaning and purpose of your life.

“Man is condemned to be free; because once thrown into the world, he is responsible for everything he does.”

“It is up to you to give [life] a meaning.”

–Jean-Paul Sartre

“It is man’s natural sickness to believe that he possesses the Truth.”

–Blaise Pascal

I was 85% existentialism, 50% egoism (heh) and 35% justice (fairness).

That quiz is inherently flawed though, becuase I know what my philosophy is, and that quiz does not test for it. My philosophy is Frisbeetarianism, which holds that when you die, your soul goes up to the roof and gets stuck.

Or maybe that’s not a real philosophy and George Carlin just made it up for one of his stand up specials, I can’t remember.

Haha, yeah, mine is closer to “I’ll tell you when I figure it out”-type of procrastination philosophy, whereby if I act like I know something for long enough I may gain some sort of actual knowledge. I must say that Fisbeetarianism does sound awfully convincing though, although I must ask this: do you get stuck on your own roof or the roof of some eternal old person?

The traditional texts concerning Frisbeetarianism hold that one’s soul elevates to whichever crotchety old person’s roof is nearest to your place of death.
“Old man Withers” roof is a popular resting place for Frisbeetarianists.
