Help me by Mewisthebest

This is a drawing by an old classmate of mine (he was in my Worldview/Philosophy class and physics). He did this when he was 16. The red writing says, "Who cares?" "I'm scared." "WHY?" and "I'm going to explode." Sometimes this is how philosophers feel as they think about all the different thoughts in the world... It is like walking on a path in the Grand Canyon and you think you are going somewhere--and then you reach the "end" and realize--this is not the end--you look out at a black pit that has no bottom or edge. You do not see the Grand Canyon cliffs and river you were expecting. You are instead looking out at all the speculation, spoken and unspoken, regarding the questions.

Shut up Fool!!

Don't Touch.—There are dreadful people who, instead of solving a problem, complicate it for those who deal with it and make it harder to solve. Whoever does not know how to hit the nail on the head should be entreated not to hit the nail at all. (Nietzsche, Human all too Human, aphorism 326)
