  lit+ Albert CAMUS [#]  in his
       "The Myths of SISYPHUS [#] F" elaborates on
  THE ABSURD AS BEING AT THE CORE OF SUICIDE
  "THE ABSURD HAS MEANING
   ONLY IN SO FAR AS IT IS NOT AGREED TO ...
   ABSURDITY SPRINGS FROM A COMPARISON ...
   THE ABSURD ENDS WITH DEATH ...
   A MAN IS ALWAYS PREY TO HIS TRUTHS ...
   HE CAN NOT FREE HIMSELF FROM THEM ... "
   also
   " THE ONLY TRUE SOLUTION
     IS  PRECISELY WHERE
     HUMAN JUDGMENT SEES NO SOLUTION
     OTHERWISE WHAT NEED WOULD WE HAVE OF GOD?"
  the above CAMUS took from Leo CHESTOV [#]
