Even if it is never said clearly, we can guess a certain lucidity about its limits which allows the thinker to transcend nietzzche self but within oneself, within space and boundaries determined by his own humanity.

I was fully awake now and, for the first time in a “normal” state of consciousness, having vivid hallucinations. In a nutshell, if Nietzsche is homno your hero,and you would love to know him more and get a glimpse of what made him tick, then, by all means, rush and buy this book. I myself, an opponent of Christianity de rigueur? I could feel the rush from their wings–like bats. If one is looking for objectivite and exactitude in the description of life events, look elsewhere.
