Camus was not interested in convincing everyone else that life is essentially absurd but about finding out how to live with that knowledge. He actually had a lot of respect for human feelings.

So it's a he? Hmmm. Sounds familiar...What if for the sake of an otherworldly imagination we suspend the frivolous notions of presence and actually inhabit a higher calling? Far out or calling out? To where? For what? To paint with bloody futility? Ambiguity sucks. JMHO

 
Aaah, you of all people should not be getting hung up on the supposed gender of a possessive pronoun.

Unless you're bored and looking for a metaphysical quarrel.
