I find it very curious and strange, that after a spectacularly poor start in life, I've done everything I possibly could to become the best I could be, above and beyond what might have reasonably been expected, yet I have - as I near the end of my life - no friends. While a mass murderer has many people falling all over themselves to be his friends, lovers, confidantes.

Being good seems not to be of much general value in this particular life.
Yes, even the Golden State Killer got to have a wife on top of all those rapes and murders. That speaks volumes!
Yep, the saying that life isn't fair is so true and not a cliche. So who cares if say for example, a God exists. :)

I care. Knowing the truth of this renders so many other questions irrelevant.

Obviously, I was talking loosely or in a particular context.

Look at it this way, I would care just that I wouldn't care all that much. Get it? In other words, degree is relevant.

Well: dangle a carrot, and a rabbit is sure to strike.

If virtually everything is a lie or an illusion, the typical carrot is not mentally damaged. In fact, it is likely enhanced because the things in which such a carrot associates with never ages or degrades.

1. A mental state that arises spontaneously rather than through conscious effort and is often accompanied by physiological changes; a feeling: the emotions of joy, sorrow, and anger.

Source: emotion - The Free Dictionary by Farlex

1. A strong feeling of affection and concern toward another person, as that arising from kinship or close friendship.

Source: love - The Free Dictionary by Farlex

Emotion is weakness in its passive state and love too is weakness in its active state.

Yeah, the biblical version of Lucifer probably is ENTJ if it's true he was the most beautiful and the most intelligent.
