I don't believe in any kind of "righteous self" beyond something I might have or could possibly invent within my own perception. If there is some kind of transcendental, extra-material force that guides life, I don't think there is enough empirical evidence for me to submit my intellect to it.

I basically abide by the tenets of absurdism - that existence is essentially absurd and without inherent meaning. This is not necessarily a negative thing because it opens a man to define his life with whatever he chooses, instead of submitting to dogma. A man can create his own meaning in life, though he should be aware that it is still HIS invention and he must not delude himself.
