Or, perhaps he was more like Camus's protagonist at the end of L'Etranger, embracing the essential nothingness of the universe and becoming one with it while facing his own execution.
Either way, I would have to respect the right of someone to perform such a deeply personal/philosophical ritual.
'Course that's just me.
