A description of the experience
Thus spake Zarathustra - Nietzsche
O my brethren, I consecrate you and point you to a new nobility: ye shall become procreators and cultivators and sowers of the future -
Verily, not to a nobility which ye could purchase like traders with traders' gold; for little worth is all that hath its price.
Let it not be your honour henceforth whence ye come, but whither ye go! Your Will and your feet which seek to surpass you – let these be your new honour!
O my brethren, not backward shall your nobility gaze, but outward! Exiles shall ye be from all fatherlands and forefatherlands!
Your children’s land shall ye love; let this love be your new nobility - the undiscovered in the remotest seas! For it do I bid your sails search and search!
Unto your children shall ye make amends for being the children of your fathers: all the past shall ye thus redeem. This new table do I place over you!
Aloft will it build itself with columns and stairs—life itself: into remote distances would it gaze, and out towards blissful beauties— THEREFORE doth it require elevation!
And because it requireth elevation, therefore doth it require steps, and variance of steps and climbers! To rise striveth life, and in rising to surpass itself."
