It is often enough, and always with great surprise, intimated to me that there is something both ordinary and unusual in all my writings, from the "Birth of Tragedy" to the recently published "Prelude to a Philosophy of the Future": they all contain, I have been told, snares and nets for short sighted birds, and something that is almost a constant, subtle, incitement to an overturning of habitual opinions and of approved customs. What!? Everything is merely—human—all too human? With this exclamation my writings are gone through, not without a certain dread and mistrust of ethic itself and not without a disposition to ask the exponent of evil things if those things be not simply misrepresented. My writings have been termed a school of distrust, still more of disdain: also, and more happily, of courage, audacity even. And in fact, I myself do not believe that anybody ever looked into the world with a distrust as deep as mine, seeming, as I do, not simply the timely advocate of the devil, but, to employ theological terms, an enemy and challenger of God; and whosoever has experienced any of the consequences of such deep distrust, anything of the chills and the agonies of isolation to which such an unqualified difference of standpoint condemns him endowed with it, will also understand how often I must have sought relief and self-forgetfulness from any source—through any object of veneration or enmity, of scientific seriousness or wanton lightness; also why I, when I could not find what I was in need of, had to fashion it for myself, counterfeiting it or imagining it (and what poet or writer has ever done anything else, and what other purpose can all the art in the world possibly have?) That which I always stood most in need of in order to effect my cure and self-recovery was faith, faith enough not to be thus isolated, not to look at life from so singular a point of view—a magic apprehension (in eye and mind) of relationship and equality, a calm confidence in friendship, a blindness, free from suspicion and questioning, to two sidedness; a pleasure in externals, superficialities, the near, the accessible, in all things possessed of color, skin and seeming. Perhaps I could be fairly reproached with much "art" in this regard, many fine counterfeitings; for example, that, wisely or wilfully, I had shut my eyes to Schopenhauer's blind will towards ethic, at a time when I was already clear sighted enough on the subject of ethic; likewise that I had deceived myself concerning Richard Wagner's incurable romanticism, as if it were a beginning and not an end; likewise concerning the Greeks, likewise concerning the Germans and their future—and there may be, perhaps, a long list of such likewises. Granted, however, that all this were true, and with justice urged against me, what does it signify, what can it signify in regard to how much of the self-sustaining capacity, how much of reason and higher protection are embraced in such self-deception?—and how much more falsity is still necessary to me that I may therewith always reassure myself regarding the luxury of my truth. Enough, I still live; and life is not considered now apart from ethic; it will [have] deception; it thrives (lebt) on deception ... but am I not beginning to do all over again what I have always done, I, the old immoralist, and bird snarer—talk unmorally, ultramorally, "beyond good and evil"?

    The blueprint for life as we know it

    A great book filled with plenty of aphorims that ranges from almost every subject of life (as mere humans of course). We can better our knowledge through our own experience if we all take this book along with us.

    *he walks in wearing a dark green hoodie, no pants, and boxers. A sword is strapped to his back, runes spiralling down the blade and hilt. A belt of shurikens is around his waist.*

    Megan's Bio post post post!

    Name: Megan Mary Etherway, Miss Etherway, Megan the Conductor, Megan. Appearance: she has black wavy hair with white highlights that she normally pins up in a bun. She is 5'8"; she wears a white three quarter-length blouse with a ruffled collar. She wears a black women's pants suit with her blouse. Her skin is a tad bit tan, and her face is a bit narrow. Age: 25 Powers: she can play any instrument without knowing how, and can make musical notes and figures appear and direct them at anybody. She can make them have soft rounded edges and bounce lazily off someone, or she can make them have sharper than rasor-sharp edges and spew them at people with unbelievable speed and hurt them very badly. They can also be any size, some smaller than you toenail on your piggy toe, or as big as axes. She does this when she fights, which is hardly ever. She can move zero gravity, and this can give her an advantage or a disadvantage in fighting. Gender: Duh! Think that is it...Other: Ask! Post post post!
