Onstant is offered a chance to take a space journey to distant worlds with a beautiful woman at his side Of course there's. the sirens of titan or as i have alternatively titled it why life is the universes greatest long con is the perfect catalyst for my impending existential crisis all courtesy of johnin this review i will explore the two major themes of the novel state what we can learn them and explain how these lessons apply to our meager lives lets get startedfree will ah the biggest illusion of them them all if the universe was a magician the fact that we somehow believe we have control over our lives would be considered the finale the best trick saved for last because we are nothing than victims of a series of accidents the combination of random events created us and will continue to lead us and nothing we can do or say has any influence over that there is no way to control that which is unpredictable alexa play despacito meaning and purpose if you choose to believe vonnegut intrinsically everyone knows how to find the meaning of life within themselves meaning that even though we just established we have no control over our lives we can still find meaningpurpose and make it highly personal in nature in this instance i agree with the book in that the purpose of human life no matter who is controlling it is to love whoever is around to be loved unfortunately for me im painfully single in closing what have we learned its that life is meaningless but we should be happy about it because even though we may not be able to control what life throws at us we have the innate disposition to be able to make it meaningful thats what makes us humanand that is something we all could do well to remember thanks for coming to my ted talk 45 stars
