Only Consciousness Exists

Emil Cioran

“The World begins and ends with us. Only our consciousness exists, it is everything, and this everything vanishes with it. Dying, we leave nothing. Then why so much fuss around an event that is no such thing?

“Our place is between being and non-being—between two fictions.”

-E.M. Cioran
