One must imagine Fediverse users happy.
@rixx The absurd [user] catches sight of a burning and frigid, transparent and limited fediverse in which nothing is possible but everything is given, and beyond which all is collapse and nothingness. [They] can then decide to accept such a fediverse and draw from it [...] strength, [...] refusal to hope, and the unyielding evidence of a life without consolation.
It's (in my reading) an attempt to derive meaning from a fundamentally broken world by fully embracing the bleakness of everything and deciding to face its entire hopeless absurdity as an act of rebellion and non-acceptance.
Camus applies this philosophy to Sisyphus, and concludes that rather than picturing him as frustrated, "one must imagine Sisyphus happy".
