Artist's Description

“Mankind” does not advance, it does not even exist. The overall
aspect is that of a tremendous experimental laboratory in which
a few successes are scored, scattered throughout all ages, while
there are untold failures, and all order, logic, union, and obligingness
are lacking. How can we fail to recognize that the ascent of
Christianity is a movement of decadence?- That the German Reformation
is a recrudescence of Christian barbarism?- That the
Revolution" destroyed the instinct for a grand organization of
society?
Man represents no progress over the animal: the civilized
tenderfoot is an abortion compared to the Arab and Corsican; the
Chinese is a more successful type, namely more durable, than the
European.

To give men back the courage to their natural drives-
To check their self-underestimation (not that of man as an
individual but that of man as nature-)-
To remove antitheses from things after comprehending that
we have projected them there-
To remove the idiosyncrasies of society from existence (guilt,
punishment, justice, honesty, freedom, love, etc.)-
Progress toward “naturalness”; in all political questions, also
in the relations of parties, even of commercial, workers’, and employers’
parties, questions of power are at stake-“what one can
do,” and only after that what one ought to do.’

The most powerful man, the creator, would have to be the
most evil, in as much as he carries his ideal against the ideals of
other men and remakes them in his own image. Evil here means:
hard, painful, enforced.

Man is beast and superbeast; the higher man is inhuman and
superhuman: these belong together. With every increase of greatness
and height in man, there is also an increase in depth and
terribleness: one ought not to desire the one without the other or
rather: the more radically one desires the one, the more
radically one achieves precisely the other.

Terribleness is part of greatness: let us not deceive ourselves.

We few or many who again dare to live in a dismoralized world,
we pagans in faith: we are probably also the first to grasp what
a pagan faith is :-to have to imagine higher creatures than man,
hut beyond good and evil; to have to consider all being higher
as also being immoral. We believe in Olympus-and not in the
“Crucified.”

The most spiritual men feel the stimulus and charm of
sensuous things in a way that other men-those with “fleshly
hearts”-cannot possibly imagine and ought not to imagine:
they are sensualists in the best faith, because they accord the
senses a more fundamental value than to that fine sieve, that
thinning and reducing machine, or whatever we may call what
in the language of the people is named “spirit.” The strength and
power of the senses-this is the essential thing in a well-constituted
and complete man: the splendid “animal” must be given
first-what could any “humanization” matter otherwise!

War on all presuppositions on the basis of which one has
invented a true world. Among these is the presupposition that
moral values are the supreme values.

One drives nature out of morality when one says “Love your
enemies”: for then the natural “Thou shalt love thy neighbor and
hate thy enemy” in the law (in instinct) has become meaningless;
then this love of one’s neighbor must also find a new basis (as a
kind of love of God). Everywhere, God is inserted and utility
withdrawn; everywhere the real origin of morality is denied: the
veneration of nature, which lies precisely in the recognition of a
natural morality, is destroyed at its roots-
Whence comes the seductive charm of such an emasculated
ideal of man? Why are we not disgusted by it as we are perhaps
disgusted by the idea of a castrato?- The answer lies precisely
here: the voice of a castrato does not disgust us, despite the cruel
mutilation that is its condition: it has grown sweeter- Just because
the “male organ” has been amputated from virtue, a feminine
note has been brought to the voice of virtue that it did not have
before.

Do you want a name for this world? A solution for all its riddles? A light
for you, too, you best-concealed, strongest, most intrepid, most
midnightly men?- This world is the will to power – and nothing
besides! And you yourselves are also this will to power – and
nothing besides
