PostSubject: Whos is Superman?   Mon Jul 11, 2011 11:22 am

The Divine Vacuum

'Where has God gone?' he cried. 'I shall tell you. We have killed him - you and I. We are all his murderers. But how have we done this? How were we able to drink up the sea? Who gave us the sponge to wipe away the entire horizon? What did we do when we unchained this earth from its sun? Whither is it moving now? Whither are we moving now? Away from all suns? Are we not perpetually falling? Backward, sideward, forward, in all directions? Is there any up or down left? Are we not straying as through an infinite nothing? Do we not feel the breath of empty space? Has it not become colder? Is more and more night not coming on all the time? Must not lanterns be lit in the morning? Do we not hear anything yet of the noise of the gravediggers who are burying God? Do we not smell anything yet of God's decomposition? - gods too decompose. God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we, the murderers of all murderers, console ourselves? That which was holiest and mightiest of all that the world has yet possessed has bled to death under our knives - who will wipe this blood off us? With what water could we purify ourselves? What festivals of atonement, what sacred games shall we need to invent? Is not the greatness of this deed too great for us? Must not we ourselves become gods simply to seem worthy of it? There has never been a greater deed - and whoever shall be born after us, for the sake of this deed he shall be part of a higher history than all history hitherto.'
Nietzsche
Nietzsche didn't believe that God ever existed, so it seems curious that he could pronounce God dead when, as far as he was concerned, God was never alive in the first place. What he's highlighting is the fact that much, if not most, of the culture of the world was created under the assumption of God's existence. God, or the illusion of God, is built into practically everything. But, year by year, under the bombardment of science in particular, God seems to recede ever further into the distance. Yet the old institutions, with God at their centre, still exist, even though their foundations are rotten and collapsing.

God doesn't have to be real to have a decisive impact on human culture and society. Virtual existence can be as influential as real existence. Jean Baudrillard characterised the modern world as "hyperreal", where fact and fiction, real and virtual, truth and fantasy are now so inextricably intermingled that it is not possible, even in theory, to separate them. Nietzsche's assertion is that God, real or virtual, fact or fantasy, is no longer viable. In whatever context you care to choose, he is "dead".

For Nietzsche, everyone is running away from the realisation that belief in God can no longer be sustained. He says (writing in 1882), "The greatest recent event - that 'God is dead', that the belief in the Christian god has become unbelievable - is already beginning to cast its first shadows over Europe." Christians know Nietzsche is right, but they are living in denial, refusing to face up to the "fact" of their absent God. They are too scared to face the consequences of such a conclusion. The religious beliefs of most people in the last couple of centuries have been tepid and unconvincing. People go through the motions, but there's no real sense that they genuinely believe what they claim to believe. God is dead in their hearts, but they lack the courage to admit it. But, worst of all, Nietzsche thought, are the atheists who, unlike the believers, "know" that God doesn't exist, yet haven't acknowledged the earth shattering nature of this reality.

Nietzsche's incendiary speech is directed at them, not at believers. Nietzsche's central point is that atheists have killed all trace of God in their hearts and minds yet they have no idea of the significance of what they have done. To "kill" God is not merely to reject superstition and myth, as atheists would claim, but to destroy the entire moral edifice upon which the world is built. As Nietzsche saw it, those killers are then obliged to confront what they have done, and they have refused.

God, when defined as the omnipotent, omniscient, all-seeing, morally perfect and infallible creator, is the guarantor of the moral order. No matter the limitations of human beings, who often make terrible blunders and condemn the innocent, persecute the worthy and praise the criminal and wicked, God will always know exactly who the good are and who the bad. The truth will always triumph. Every wrong will be righted. The wicked will receive their dues. No one can hide from divine justice.

This is the moral "myth". It underlies all human thinking about morality. But Nietzsche was the first to see that if God didn't exist then nothing was more bogus than the morality that flowed from the assumption of his existence. If the Ten Commandments aren't written by God then they are man-made and deliberately deceitful, masquerading as something that they are not. Within their own parameters, they are immoral. They tell us not to lie even though they themselves are lies. Why should anyone treat them with anything but contempt?

If there is no God then the wrongdoers will never receive their proper punishment and those who are unjustly treated will never receive their proper reward in the afterlife for their sufferings. For example, everyone who died in the Holocaust simply died. That was it. There was nothing else. They became smoke and dust. Some of their killers escaped and lived long and prosperous lives.

Someone like atheist biologist Richard Dawkins is exactly the sort of person Nietzsche loathed. Dawkins is a bland liberal whose personal moral code is indistinguishable from that of the average Christian, Jew or Muslim. He has killed God, so to speak, yet behaves exactly as though God still exists since he has made no attempt to proclaim a new moral order. He continues, in effect, to obey the old moral order. But in the absence of God, absolutely anything becomes possible morally: humans can choose to do whatever they like, knowing they will be neither punished nor rewarded in an afterlife that will never come. Without God, every human has absolute freedom of action. No divine eye in the sky is watching. There is no infallible log of sins committed or good deeds done. There is no book of life to be consulted on Judgment Day. No such day will ever come.

Nothing, Nietzsche realised, could be more significant than removing the foundation stone of morality from the universe, than killing the universe's guarantor of justice, than stripping the universe of its infallible standard of good and evil.

In the Godless universe, good and evil are mere matters of opinion and quickly serve no function at all since there is no conceivable standard with which everyone could agree. None of the so-called most evil people in history have ever considered themselves anything but good. When Hitler set out to exterminate the Jews, he was acting, in his opinion, for the good of Germany and humanity. When he put a pistol to his temple to commit suicide, he hadn't changed his mind one iota.

Even concepts such as "human rights" and "crimes against humanity" are derived from the idea that there is some guarantor of absolute standards, but without God it's all a sham. A legal opinion is invariably a political opinion, not a moral one. As Goering said at the Nuremberg Trials, "The victor will always be the judge and the vanquished will always be the accused." Had the Nazis won WWII, different people would have been in the dock at Nuremberg, facing the executioner's noose. Churchill, Truman and Stalin would have gone to the gallows. Ultimately, force is all that matters in the Godless universe. And force has no moral component at all.

Imagine earth after one million years of atheism, where every concept of God has vanished, where all traces of the God mentality have been erased, where every vestige of religion has been consigned to oblivion. The word "evil" would no longer appear in the human vocabulary. As Nietzsche said, "When man no longer regards himself as evil he ceases to be so!" That, in fact, is how easy it is to escape from evil. The whole concept is an illusion in an atheistic world. A man who has committed mass slaughter should feel no more evil and guilty than a lion after it has killed a thousand antelopes: nature - evolution - is simply taking its amoral course. There is no concept of "murder" in the animal world; why should such a concept exist for humans in a Godless universe? There are no holy commandments to be transgressed. Man-made laws are not divine laws. They promote a certain agenda, usually that of the powerful. They are mostly concerned with the protection of property.

Nietzsche regarded the removal of the moral order of the universe as the biggest revolution conceivable. Nothing could escape the consequences. He referred to himself as the first immoralist to emphasise his utter rejection of Christian values. Only as an immoralist or amoralist can an atheist be taken seriously. If atheists are Christians without Christ, as most of them are in moral terms, then they are a joke.

Contemporary atheists like Dawkins, despite all of their bluster, are still firmly rooted in a Judeo-Christian mindset and culture, and haven't even begun to explore what true atheism means. Nietzsche viewed such people with scorn because he knew exactly what it meant to kill God. To assassinate the holiest of holies, the centrepiece of human existence, the keystone of the universe, is to take the boldest step of all. And you can't then continue as though nothing has changed.

For Nietzsche, the assassins of God must be people of the highest possible calibre. They must be nothing less than Supermen. Nature abhors a vacuum and, above all, it abhors a divine vacuum. What can fill such an infinite, transcendent vacuum? It is Nietzsche's Supermen who step into the cosmic void.

Once you said 'God' when you gazed upon distant seas; but now I have taught you to say 'Superman'.

The Supermen must be creators, those who establish and enforce values, those with the strength and courage to act and judge. The Supermen should "revalue all values" since all of the old values are as dead as the God who underwrote them.

Nietzsche didn't think a true Superman has ever appeared on earth. Individuals he thought had some of the qualities of the Superman were Alcibiades (a friend of Socrates, and a controversial Athenian general, thinker and leader of men), Caesar (a controversial Roman general, thinker and leader of men), Friedrich II (a controversial Holy Roman Emperor, thinker and leader of men), Leonardo da Vinci (artistic genius and polymath) and Napoleon (a controversial general, emperor, thinker and leader of men). He described Bonaparte as: "that synthesis of monster and Superman." The man who came closest to the Superman, in Nietzsche's opinion, was Goethe, a literary genius and polymath. (As we have revealed earlier on this site, Goethe was a Grand Master of the Illuminati.)

The Superman is the next stage in human evolution. The Superman is not a biologically higher evolutionary form - he will still be very much part of the human species - but he will attain an infinitely higher level of consciousness. He represents human consciousness reaching its zenith, expanding to bursting point, becoming everything noble, magnificent and wondrous that is currently latent in the human condition and which has been held back for so long by false prophets and Satanic religions that seek to have humanity on its knees, bowing before golden idols.

Nietzsche characterised man as a bridge from ape to Superman. We characterise the Superman as a bridge from man to God.

Supermen are the supreme advocates of life-affirmation. They crave more life, a higher quality of life, an intensification of life, life expressed to its fullest extent. They say "Yes" to life. They say "Thou shalt" rather than "Thou shalt not". They are liberators, not controllers. They seek a community of free, creative, open-minded individuals of the highest calibre, not herds of slavish believers whose highest aspiration is to fly a hijacked plane into a skyscraper in the name of "God". How could the "God" of such people ever be confused with anyone other than Satan? What "God" other than Satan would ever accept a blood sacrifice of innocent passengers on a plane? If that's how believers conceive of their God then these believers are Satanic. They are agents of hell, and hell is precisely what they bring to this world. Imagine a world free of such people. Would that not be paradise? The "original sin" is to believe in Satan yet name him "God". Christians, Jews and Muslims are all Satan worshippers.

On this website, we have often emphasised that the True God neither craves nor demands any form of worship. Only tyrants wish to see the masses prostrate before them. All religions involving acts of mass worship are Satanic.

As Nietzsche said of the Superman: "The creator seeks companions, not corpses or herds of believers. The creator seeks fellow creators, those who inscribe new values on new tables."

And what Nietzsche says of the Superman is exactly what can be said of the True God. He seeks those who are like him, not those on their bellies, wailing in fear. No Christian, Jew or Muslim could ever find himself in the company of God. They are an abomination, an insult to divinity. They are not "companions of God." As Nietzsche says, they are "herds of believers", practically corpses. The life force could scarcely be weaker in these people. It would never occur to them to write "new values on new tables"; they are slaves of ancient, words of crumbling stone. They cling to dead texts to steer their feeble, misguided lives. They have no creative instinct, no desire to look inside themselves and find a higher being. The Superman's greatest creation is himself. The Christian wouldn't know where to begin. The Christian whines that he needs Jesus Christ. In truth, the only person he needs is himself. We are the vehicles of our own salvation. No one needs some Jewish man called Yehoshua ben Yosef who allegedly died on a Roman Cross 2,000 years ago. The very idea is laughable.

Nietzsche, although an atheist, was seeking a spiritual renewal of humanity. Richard Dawkins, with his sterile, desiccated atheism, could never inspire anyone, but Nietzsche's Supermen could lead us to a new, glorious world, free of the shackles of the past, liberated from our Satanic inheritance of Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

The Superman has no desire to be a tyrant over others, though he is certainly capable of it. Those who cannot be tyrants cannot be praised for not being something they could never be. But those who have the power to be tyrants but deliberately choose not to - who restrain that aspect of their character - then they have demonstrated their virtue.

The Old World Order are precisely those people who never restrain themselves; who indulge every whim, every base desire. The greedy pigs of Wall Street could all choose not to take their vast, obscene and absurd bonuses, but none of them does. It wouldn't enter their heads. Even in the midst of a financial crisis, with the whole world condemning the bonus culture, they stick their snouts into the money trough more vigorously than ever. They know that no one will ever stop them. They are the masters, and we are the cowardly slaves who never fight back.

The Superman, on the other hand, is the passionate man who controls his passions; the tyrant who controls his tyranny; the master who masters himself rather than others. In Nietzsche's language, he "sublimates his will to power" i.e. he turns his primitive desires into positive forces of creativity. (Schopenhauer said that the fundamental drive in all creatures is the will to live. Nietzsche pointed out that creatures often risk their lives to gain higher status, thus showing that there is an even more fundamental drive, which he named the will to power. Nietzsche considered fear as the feeling of the absence of power. The Wall Street gang are unafraid, while all the rest of us cower like frightened children. Why are we so scared simply to sweep Wall Street aside? No one needs these people.)

Nietzsche regarded the notorious Cesare Borgia, the model for Machiavelli's The Prince, as an example of someone with an unsublimated will to power. Borgia wanted power in the crudest sense - direct control over others. He wanted to be master, with everyone else his slaves. Such a man could never be any sort of Superman until he learned to master himself, to transform brute force into a creative higher state of consciousness. The Wall Street gang are very much of his ilk, but without any of his style.

The Old World have no concept of self-mastery. They are exactly those sad people ruled by an unsublimated will to power. They are primitives, near savages. Greed is the most obvious manifestation of unsublimated will to power in our contemporary world. The greed of the super-rich simply beggars belief. It is astounding that a) they are so greedy and b) we allow them to get away with it.

Nietzsche said that the ideal Superman would be Caesar with the soul of Christ. He should have replaced "Christ" with a much nobler person: St Francis of Assisi, a man who turned his back on wealth and comfort to live a live of austerity, poverty and helping others. Francis was one of the few Christians who transcended the dark gravity of Christ's Satanic religion.

Who is the Superman? It is he who sublimates his will to power and turns it to higher ends; he who has understood and mastered himself; he who has practised self-overcoming and raised himself to a higher, nobler state. He needs no other to create him; he creates himself. He is tolerant, forgiving, kind and compassionate not from weakness but from the very greatest strength.

The Superman is someone who affirms every moment of his life. He is ashamed of nothing. Nietzsche constructed an existential test to provoke people into considering the sort of life they are leading:

'What if a demon crept after you one day or night in your loneliest solitude and said to you: "This life, as you live it now and have lived it, you will have to live again and again, times without number; and there will be nothing new in it, but every pain and every joy and every thought and sigh and all the unspeakably small and great in your life must return to you, and everything in the same series and sequence - and in the same way this spider and this moonlight among the trees, and in the same way this moment and I myself. The eternal hourglass of existence will be turned again and again - and you with it, you dust of dust!" - Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who thus spoke? Or have you experienced a tremendous moment in which you would have answered him: "You are a god and never did I hear anything more divine!" If this thought gained power over you it would, as you are now, transform and perhaps crush you; the question in all and everything: "do you want this again and again, times without number?" would lie as the heaviest burden upon all of your actions. Or how well disposed towards yourself and towards life would you have to become to have no greater desire than this for the ultimate eternal sanction and seal?'

This is Nietzsche's famous "eternal recurrence", the idea that this life you lead will be repeated infinitely many times in every exact detail. The Superman who has lived every moment to the maximum is he would celebrate eternal recurrence.

Nietzsche said, "If in all you will to do, you begin by asking yourself: Is it certain that I will to do it an infinite number of times? - this would be your most solid centre of gravity."

This is the question the Superman poses to himself, and he does nothing that he would not wish to have echo endlessly in eternity.

Nietzsche was a philosopher of "becoming". The Superman is a perpetual becoming, forever transcending base human nature, forever trying to become alchemical gold.

The opposite of the Superman is the "Last Man". This is the inevitable product of where our current cultural values are leading us. Arguably, we have already reached that state. We are surrounded by last men. The rise of industrialisation, capitalism and consumerism, has created "mass man" - a lifeless husk with no great passions, no genuine beliefs, mired in materialism and lacking all sense of the spiritual. Mass man - the man who follows the crowd and is dead to the human spirit - and Organisation Man - the man who does his daily job like a zombie, never challenging his idiotic managers in his ludicrous world of bureaucracy - are synonyms for the Last Man. They are everywhere, killing all of the potential of humanity. They are trivial, cowardly, obsessed with petty comforts and vanity.

The Superman is the antidote, but time is running short.

If we embark on Nietzsche's project to become Supermen, to be creators and value makers, to rise to the highest heights, then we are donning the mantle of God. It is by walking in God's shoes that we enormously increase our chances of contacting our divine spark.

The beauty of Nietzsche's Superman is that it can appeal to both spiritual atheists and those who seek their divine spark; it is both a non-religious and religious concept. In that sense, it can unify atheists, agnostics, deists and gnostics. The only ones who are excluded are the theists - to them the Superman would be the purest heresy and blasphemy, the falsest God. Of course, it is they who worship a false God. The mind control exerted over them by Satan is total. They will never escape.

As for us, are we "preparatory" human beings, about to welcome a great new age, a wondrous spiritual renaissance that will transform humanity? Nietzsche said:

Preparatory human beings — I welcome all signs that a more virile, warlike age is about to begin, which will restore honour to courage above all. For this age shall prepare the way for one yet higher, and it shall gather the strength that this higher age will require some day—the age that will carry heroism into the search for knowledge and that will wage wars for the sake of ideas and their consequences. To this end we now need many preparatory courageous human beings who cannot very well leap out of nothing, any more than out of the sand and slime of present-day civilization and metropolitanism—human beings who know how to be silent, lonely, resolute, and content and constant in invisible activities; human beings who are bent on seeking in all things for what in them must be overcome; human beings distinguished as much by cheerfulness, patience, unpretentiousness, and contempt for all great vanities as by magnanimity in victory and forbearance regarding the small vanities of the vanquished; human beings whose judgement concerning all victors and the share of chance in every victory and fame is sharp and free; human beings with their own festivals, their own working days, and their own periods of mourning, accustomed to command with assurance but instantly ready to obey when that is called for—equally proud, equally serving their own cause in both cases; more endangered human beings, more fruitful human beings, happier human beings! For believe me: the secret for harvesting from existence the greatest fruitfulness and the greatest enjoyment is—to live dangerously! Build your cities on the slopes of Vesuvius! Send your ships into uncharted seas! Live at war with your peers and yourselves! Be robbers and conquerors as long as you cannot be rulers and possessors, you seekers of knowledge! Soon the age will be past when you could be content to live hidden in forests like shy deer. At long last the search for knowledge will reach out for its due; it will want to rule and possess, and you with it!

In Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Nietzsche assumes the role of the second coming of the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra, returning to correct the errors pronounced by his first incarnation. Nietzsche's Zarathustra says, in the following quotation, what every true prophet ought to say. The fact that none of Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Jesus or Mohammed did so proves that they were false prophets and deceivers.

Go away from me and guard yourselves against Zarathustra! And better still: be ashamed of him! Perhaps he has deceived you.

The man of knowledge must be able not only to love his enemies but also to hate his friends.

One repays a teacher badly if one remains only a pupil. And why, then, should you pluck at my laurels?

You respect me; but how if one day your respect should tumble? Take care that a falling statue does not strike you dead!

You say you believe in Zarathustra? But of what importance is Zarathustra? You are my believers: but of what importance are all believers?

You had not yet sought yourselves when you found me. Thus do all believers; therefore all belief is of so little account.
Now I bid you to lose me and find yourselves; and only when you have all denied me will I return to you…
