There is nothing above and beyond the the material reality. Everything that is there can be understood from physicality. There is no dualism or pluralism. To feel “disconnected” at this thought is to be under the same illusion as feeling “connected”. Both are as impossible. In this way, the existential absurdity makes sense. We have always made meaning for ourselves, under the guise of religion, philosophy, science, or some other construct. We are good at it. We shall forever struggle with this in repeated acts of forgetfulness.
