Artist's Description

Sure, Jesus SAYS he loves you, but he wasn’t REAL! So, there’s that.

Nietzsche, on the other hand, was a REAL MAN! A living, breathing dude! He was a professor and shit. Real smarty pants. Thought about stuff and wrote it down. Oh, and he was very well-respected and a hit with the ladies!

He had a certain parlour trick that could have a crowd of people eating out of his hand! He called it the ‘Disappearing Savior’ and it involved a napkin, some ketchup, three darning needles and – well, you don’t need all the details. Suffice it to say that when the lights went out and came back on, the ‘Savior,’ sure enough, had disappeared!! Oh, he was a sly one!

It’s a little known fact that Friedrich was a unicycle enthusiast and would often practice the juggling of 5 balls simultaneously. He had mastered 3, but 5 – that was a real challenge! But Richy (as he preferred to be called) persevered and eventually got all 5 balls floating through the air like a ballet of butterflies! Oh, what a sight to behold!

Nietzsche’s good traits didn’t end there, no. He was quite a charitable man and would often lease the space in his mustache to immigrant midgets for a measly 5 pfluegers a month!

Will To Power


(Nov. 1887-March 1888)


Of what is great one must either be silent or speak with greatness.

With greatness—that means cynically and with innocence.


What I relate is the history of the next two centuries. I describe

what is coming, what can no longer come differently:

the advent of nihilism. This history can be related even now; for

necessity itself is at work here. This future speaks even now in

a hundred signs, this destiny announces itself everywhere; for

this music of the future all ears are cocked even now. For some

time now, our whole European culture has been moving as toward

a catastrophe, with a tortured tension that is growing from decade

to decade: restlessly, violently, headlong, like a river that wants

to reach the end, that no longer reflects, that is afraid to reflect.


He that speaks here, conversely, has done nothing so far

but reflect: a philosopher and solitary by instinct, who has found

his advantage in standing aside and outside, in patience, in procrastination,

in staying behind; as a spirit of daring and experiment

that has already lost its way once in every labyrinth of the future;

as a soothsayer-bird spirit who looks back when relating what will

come; as the first perfect nihilist of Europe who, however, has

even now lived through the whole of nihilism, to the end, leaving

it behind, outside himself.


For one should make no mistake about the meaning of the

title that this gospel of the future wants to bear. "The Will to

Power: Attempt at a Revaluation of All Values"—in this formulation

a countermovement finds expression, regarding both principle

and task; a movement that in some future will take the place of

this perfect nihilism-but presupposes it, logically and psychologically,

and certainly can come only after and out of it. For why

has the advent of nihilism become necessary? Because the values

we have had hitherto thus draw their final consequence; because

nihilism represents the ultimate logical conclusion of our great

values and ideals-because we must experience nihilism before

we can find out what value these “values” really had.- We require,

sometime, new values.
