Cutting Grass is a place on the internet where Link is relentlessly cutting grass to find always more rubies (currency of the game “Zelda: a link to the past”). Although the counter is at its maximum, Link still continues its activity in real-time, the means – raise money – becoming the end itself.
In the manner of Albert Camus’ happy Sisyphus, he finds happiness in accomplishing the task he undertakes, and not in the meaning of this task: “This universe henceforth without a master seems to him neither sterile nor futile. [...] The struggle itself toward the heights is enough to fill a man’s heart.”
