Does anything really matter? Everything we do and will do on this earth and in this universe will be destroyed, the physical memory of it will be destroyed

Everything you do matters. You are your universe.
(Yes, I just watched The Egg.)
Seriously, though, everything you do does matter...to you, to those around you, to the universe. Things can't all be grand gestures or show an immediate reward (in the sense that you realize then and there that something you did mattered).
Its the things we don't do but have been made aware that we should do that matter most.
The problem is that we ascribe far too much of "ourselves" into these symbols. Like "I AM an electrician, I AM a democrat, I AM Michael and so on. We believe that we ARE these abstract concepts
When the mind is still, you'll find that nothing matters but that EVERYTHING matters just because nothing matters
I'm more of a Atheist but I believe that one day our planet will take back what once belonged to it...
No one knows whether or not our lives matter or have ''purpose'', so we might as well enjoy the ride, ...

How can you comprehend the vastness of the universe and of consciousness and still go on to continue thinking that anything you do really matters from a non karmic/ etheric perspective?
Does anything really matter? Everything we do and will do on this earth and in this universe will be destroyed, the physical memory of it will be destroyed. We are stuck on an infinite life/death loop with no hope for escape.

Of course none of it matters! That's what's so liberating. You're then free to choose your own path, create your own system, follow your own perspectives, consciously direct your own course in life. If for nothing else, then the fact that life is boring without awe, mystery, curiosity, and growth. Do I seem to contradict myself? This information wasn't for you then.. no worries... because, of course, it doesn't really matter, anyways.
