Ayan Sanyal


This is eternal recurrence
No way to stop this
The next time you see a beggar on the street
Asking for a coin
Don’t give it to him.
Because by giving into him, you are not helping him or you
You are giving into the slave morality
We need to move on from that
Man is naught but a stepping stone
A bridge in need of traversing
A point of no returning
I present to you:
The Ubermensch
He will laugh upon humans as we laugh upon the chimpanzee
He will be all that he needs to be
A lion waking up in the morning
A graceful swan in a swarming
Suffering is beautiful, let’s embrace it
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger
Frederich said that before any Kanye made it better
You can’t hide from this
This is no gay science
This is beyond good and evil
This is a social upheaval
This is god’s funeral
This a devil
“This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more.”
This is eternal recurrence
