Re: Nietzsche's positive evaluation of illusion from an aesthetic point of view

"Truth cannot be regarded as the highest power. The will to semblance, to illusion, to deception, to becoming, to change (to objective deception) is to be regarded here as deeper, more original, more metaphysical than the will to truth, to reality, to being - the latter is itself merely a form of th...

Re: The Art thread

Check my Favourites folder on DeviantArt; I prefer psychedelic art.
I add one work per artist, but you can click on names and check out galleries independently, of course.

Re: Fodder 'n' Frivolities: a complaint against Spectacle Society

Then create a new article, a polar one. You obviously have the writing skills for one, why stop there? Thanks again for the compliment, but seriously, you have no idea how much time and effort it cost me to write this one. Finding all those quotes and giving form to your own original ideas is hard ...

Seduction doesn't destroy, it merely distracts.
