Someone’s done a survey on whether people who feel their life has no meaning care about that one way or the other.
Looking at a sample of 603 Germans, Schnell found that 61 percent were “meaningful,” 4 percent suffered a “crisis of meaning,” and 35 percent were “existentially indifferent,” those who “neither experience their lives as meaningful nor suffer from this lack of meaning.” So of the people who felt their lives lacked meaning, it really only bothered one in 10 of them.
I have no idea whether the nature of the sample had any effect on the result. Still, count me in. I suppose you could call this state of mind true atheism, though it would also please Buddhists.
