The noun nonsense comes from the adjective nonsense, meaningless, foolish, unreasonable and absurd. The adjective nonsensical comes from the old high German nonsensical, which was used as early as 1000 AD. is demonstrable, also was written nonsense, nonsense, and means has no sense, crazy, meaningless. Ultimately, one has to say that ultimately a purely outwardly led life is nonsense: Everything that has a beginning has an end. Whoever directs all his senses and striving towards that which will pass again anyway is doing a lot of nonsensical. What makes sense is what is permanent and eternal, an endeavor that also outlasts death and transience. Hence, spiritual pursuit is what is permanently important.

Dealing with other nonsense

From a lecture by Sukadev Bretz

There are people who make nonsense. And how do you deal with it? One can say that there is satiated, tamassy and rajassy nonsense. A satiated nonsense can be something someone does to cheer other people up. He's telling some nonsense to ease the mood a little. He may make a fool of himself to please others. This kind of nonsense is easy to appreciate and laugh at.

Then there is rajassic nonsense: people do something in order to get something themselves. Anything that is not helpful for the common cause or people make mistakes that do not lead to problems of equal size, but they cannot be stopped. They identify with it and they carry on with the nonsense even though they might know better. Simply out of ego or hurt, this is called rajassy nonsense.

And then of course there is the tons of nonsense, tons of nonsense is harmful. Harmful to people and harmful to common causes. Harmful to the environment and harmful to the community. If someone creates such nonsense, then you can see if you can talk to the person. Is it possible to stop him? Can you make him aware of this or will you let the other person make the mistakes? Because it is well known that mistakes are made to make sense, and failure is to grow. As they say, good decisions come from experience and experience comes from bad decisions. Sometimes you have to let people fabricate nonsense so that they can learn. On the other hand, you sometimes have to stop them from nonsense, you can then try to show them a different point of view.
