After my descent into coma I have contemplated nothingness becoming interested in the philosophy of mind, I now think reality is consciousness. A quote from philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre, the author of Being and Nothingness, “Life has no meaning a priori. Before you come alive, life is nothing; it’s up to you to give it a meaning”. Monist theory goes one step further claiming there is no material world on which to assign meaning, everything is mind.
