[[I never really liked Nietzsche because I became acquainted with him from Fans of Nietzsche who kept Quoting Phrases to me that seemed at best Suspect n at worst Corny. It is only when I started reading Heidegger’s Nietzsche that I began to appreciate Nietzsche’s true Greatness]]

z 4 “Confrontation” is genuine criticism. It is the supreme way, the only way, to a true estimation of a thinker. In confrontation we undertake to reflect on his thinking and to trace it in its effective force, not in its weakness. To what purpose? In order that through the confrontation we ourselves may become free for the supreme exertion of thinking.  [[rr10æhh]]

z 5 … At the outset, we ought to introduce some words of Nietzsche’s that stem from the time of his work on “will to power“! “For many, abstract thinking is toil; for me, on good days, it is feast and frenzy” (XIV, 24). [[rr01æhh. Philosophy like Mystical Texts have for me less to do with “Words” & more to do with d State of Consciousness that they put me in. For Example in Music is it d Words or Music that enraptures us or is it d State of Consciousness that they evoke in us?]]
Abstract thinking a feast? The highest form of human existence? Indeed. But at the same time we must observe how Nietzsche views the essence of the feast, in such a way that he can think of it only on the basis of his fundamental conception of all being, will to power. “The feast implies: pride, exuberance, frivolity; mockery of all earnestness and respectability; a divine affirmation of oneself, out of animal plenitude and perfection–all obvious states to which the Christian may not honestly say Yes. The feast is paganism par excellence” (WM, 916). For that reason, we might add, the feast of thinking never takes place in Christianity. That is to say, there is no Christian philosophy. There is no true philosophy that could be determined anywhere else than from within itself. For the same reason there is no pagan philosophy, inasmuch as anything “pagan” is always still something Christian —the counter-Christian, The Greek poets and thinkers can hardly be designated as “pagan.”
