Life has countless inherent problems. It can be illogical, absurd and we face many of these problems all the time. Nobody can answer you if you question about it and they'll tell you "its life".

I'll post about the problems in this post. Just note that I mean life in a broad way. It includes anything from society to abstract problems.

The problem of simulation:

No matter what the details are, life viewed from a broad or complete point of view is always a simulation or a bad game. Biological creatures within cycle of time acting in certain ways. Even if we accept the game, the power and control we have is very little compared to the power of groups, power of nature, power of details that we don't think about or any power that is absolutely bigger than our power. But also we can assume that everything is deterministic and what we believe as power or choice doesn't exist.


More will come later

The problem of finiteness:

Everything is limited which means everything will end. No matter what will you do or what are the details, its going to end. Every detail in your life is going to end and life is just a collection of goodbyes. Thus creating a negative state whenever good things ended. Everything you experience will end, they tell you not to think about it and keep experiencing the boring movie of things being ended until you reach your ending (death). You say good bye to everything then say it to yourself and everything you knew or experienced.

The problem of loneliness:

Humans are inherently lonely. The consciousness, the experiences , the pain and many things are exclusively experienced by one and not shared. Communication and languages doesn't share experiences and are limited and prone to error.

We distract ourselves by surrounding ourselves with others or talk with them (even on the internet). The feeling of not being alone and being within a group while the experience actually is singular, some people might feel alone even within the crowd.

Even if we assume consciousness as second person, loneliness doesn't disappear. Two persons can be lonely. A limited or isolated group can be lonely. We just keep struggling against loneliness and its always within us. And the excitement of being within a group or a crowd is a temporary distraction.

The problem of wholeness:

Some will say that their life is great or positive but does that mean life itself is great or positive as they assume? Life isn't. The notion of life being good depending on the person is completely what we can call selfish. Life is a complete collection and never separated. First, you didn't choose any of your circumstances and even if you struggled to get the "goods", someone else struggled and never got it. Circumstances that you never choose isn't something you made. Not to mention how these good most likely are the product of someone else's misery, one man's misfortune is another man's fortune.
The same inseparable life is giving you the good while giving others the bad, if you say life is good and I don't give a fuck about others, then you are completely selfish. And its not limited to the current people. How much of the advancement and knowledge we have today is only a result of previous people's miseries.
Why people should suffer so some people have "good" life or why should they suffer as a type of expirement.
If you don't accept yourself to suffer then you shouldn't accept others to suffer too. Even if you think "things can change", how many of these sufferers are helpless?

Logically speaking, life is positive if there is no possibility of negativity. Any occurrence of negativity will make life logically negative.

If you like your good life or like struggling against negativity, then its your choice but to say that life is a gift or a candy is an absurd thing. Any suffering or any problem is a product of life and inseparable.
