♦What are some real world examples of this?

I am doing a big old essay for my English class. I made a thesis that was based off the of the book "Cat's Cradle" by Kurt Vonnegut. I need real world examples of my thesis. My thesis, word for word is: "Kurt Vonnegut’s Cat’s Cradle portrays how one seeks entities in thinking they will fill the empty void felt in our inherently meaningless world."Basically, I am trying to show how people fill their lives with empty things, and how these things are essentially meaningless/useless/pointless because life has no meaning.Does this remind you of any movies? Past historical events? Books? Famous people?(I don't necessarily agree with my thesis)Any help is greatly appreciated (: Thank you so much!

    As it is worded your thesis is stating not the question of how people fill their lives but that that is the subject of his book….. Start by rewording your thesis to correctly portray what you are seeking to prove or disprove.. unless it is the subject of the book that is the subject of your thesis.
