Nihilism?

Sometimes I could feel the futility of all our earthly pursuits especially when I visit old monuments like palaces and fortresses. Think of those wars, killings, schemings, intrigues, treacheries, back-stabbings, betrayals, conspiracies, Machiavellian manipulations, mutinies, coups d’├ętat that would have been witnessed by those relics!
But pray tell me what is their relevance today? Or, did they make real sense even at those periods – all those machinations driven by transient, hedonic, self-deceiving, self-adulating and megolamaniac delusions of personal omnipotence and grandeur – all rendered meaningless by the passage of time.
But I feel hungry now – that is for real (no Maya about that)!!
