we-must-imagine-sisyphus-asymptomatic

This is a hot take: can we actually think of Sisyphus as asymptomatic in the sense that he is indeed happy - following Camus' reasoning - but consider this under the circumstance that this form of happiness is not at all transferable to other people, and if so, only to some very very few? We could also go further, and pathologize Sisyphus on a social level. Is it normal to slave away like a donkey and consider oneself lucky? Is it normal not to rebel against divine punishment? Not to receive answers from the universe about the meaning and purpose of one's activity? After all, all of this never seems desirable to us initially, so why would we also want to engage in an asymptomatic state? Why hasn't anyone actually designed an "Anti-Sisyphus" yet?
