On this episode of the Fluidity : The Varieties Of Special Meaning, Part 7 - 180 Proof

This concludes the section on the varieties of nihilistic special meaning.

Thanks to Sarah Elkins and Bruce Webber for performing roles in this episode's scripted section!


In the first part of this episode: No meaning without proof.

A stubborn nihilist can always just refuse to admit that anything is meaningful.


In the second part of this episode: Scientific rationality has proven: everything is meaningless. An event everyone thinks they remember, but never happened. Science disproved religious theories of meaning, but not meaning itself.


In the third part of this episode: No meaning from the Big Bang.

Everything was meaningless at the moment of the Big Bang. What could add meaning after that?



In the fourth part of this episode: No meaning for mortals.

Your future death does not make your present meaningless.
