Fair. The point is, unlike Nietzsche who prefers an illusion of meaning or even the creation of meaning, Camus decides NOT to.
The Nihilist sees a painting of a pipe and knows that it was painted on blank canvas, but decides that it’s a pipe, why not, it could be.
The Absurdist sees a painting of a pipe and also knows it was painted on a blank canvas, but decides it’s still not a pipe. Never will be. No point in pretending otherwise.
But both can enjoy the painting regardless.
The absurdist doesn’t find nihilist illusion to be intelectually honest.
