Note: When I said "More pessimistic, Sartrean existentialism" I intended to contrast Sartre's 'Nausea' to Wilsonian existentialism. Not to be confused with Sartre's existentialism as a whole which is optimistic.
"The irrationality of a thing is no argument against its existence, rather a condition of it." - Nietzsche
If life is not purposefully, rationally-driven, it does not require a justification for its existence (or its continuance), just like you are not required to give the universe or people a justification for being or staying alive; you simply exist, until you stop doing so.
