It's a great feeling, isn't it? I felt the same way when I read Dostoyevsky. I love Nietzsche's quote about faith and objective truth in the letter he wrote to his sister in his 21st year. Amazing. |
: It was a while before I stumbled across 'The
: Nietzsche Channel'. It almost saddens me
: that there is not more of an interest in the
: kind of 'truth' portrayed in his books.
: A few years ago, I went through... a
: transitional point in my life. I had been
: raised and was very active in the modern
: american 'church'. I was even in school to
: become a pastor. Until I was, and I quote,
: 'Excommunicated'. Once that foundation had
: been cracked, I had nothing but my unbridled
: thoughts to contend with. They (the
: thoughts) were almost seizing me, flowing,
: no, hemoraging from my mind to paper. I let
: a friend of mine at Auburn University read a
: few, and he said 'Oh, this sounds just like
: Nietzsche'. I had never heard that name
: before then, and I went out and purchased
: 'beyond good and evil'.
: It was almost like reading my own words.
: Over and over again i saw what i had written
: down reiterated in his books. To tell you
: the truth, i was in fear that I was slowly
: losing my mind... until i came across at
: least another conciousness that was on the
: same wavelength.
: And now, upon discovering this 'Nietzsche
: Channel', hopefully i'll have the joy of
: interacting with those whos pursuit of
: 'truth' is just as uncanny as mine.
