Sorry, I forgot to select "follow" on this dicussion. I love Fight Club! I want to read the book soon.
I'll read that Theatre of the Absurd as soon as I can.
You said "Living with the Absurd is a lot like having a gun always pressed against the back of our head. It's a constant reminder to go after what we want now because there is no tomorrow. It's a reminder to cherish every moment we have as if it's our last, because it actually could be our last."
But I don't necessarily agree with the choice of the word "absurd" here. I think that "awareness of death" is more apropos than "absurd". To me, per your earlier post too, absurd deals more with the futility of life -- or the apparent futility (among other things).
