The Absurd is your natural human condition.

Home Hole - Appreciation of Absurd Literature

I suppose that's not technical enough so here's another try.... The Absurd is "the conflict between the human tendency to seek inherent value and meaning in life and the human inability to find any. " Sounds dire, right? Well it is, though the benefit of recognizing and learning about absurdism is that it instigates and breeds a creativity that acts as an antidote to the raw truth of being alive. Inherently, the Absurd is a study of humanity and human behavior under circumstances that appear meaningless, purposeless, irrational, and beyond reasonable control. Absurdity is fundamentally humorous: it is that awkward but necessary laughter at wallowing in impossibility, which is life.
