Reality ... is random

Camus is one of my heroes as his take on life echoes my own as reality is random, there is no certitude, only probabilities driven by the laws of quantum. As in Tao, the only constant, in reality, is change and the key to living the right way starts with assuming nothing, something Camus wrote about with clarity and power in all of his work.

With this being said, Alain de Botton's Camus on the Coronavirus NYTimes essay eloquently details how man copes with the randomness of death using Camus' The Plaque as prime example as to why this is so.
