Nietzsche Thought You Said Altitudes

Inspired by William James (1842-1910)'s quote, "The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes." The titled responsion brings the pychology of William James together with the mountains allusions of one Friedrich Nietzsche.

Nietzsche Thought You Said Altitudes Inspired by William James: Altitudes are ideas, perceptions or even ways of life. In The Origin of Species, Darwin wrote: "Altitudes are not fixed; they are variable and may be developed and modified in accordance with the changes of the environment".

Indeed, in his view, such altitudes are not fixed. For example, as an anthropologist, he had observed various tribal peoples, which were situated on high altitudes and which in turn became more or less independent. He concluded that these people had developed an awareness of self-other unity. This consciousness of self-other unity was then transferred to their language, customs, beliefs and ways of life. Nietzsche thought you said this became the basis of all religions, philosophies and religions.

Now, what is it that Nietzsche Thought You Said? It is that in the higher realms there are no barriers to change, no boundaries to perception. What is important is that we must learn to change, adapt and transform ourselves. The reason for this is that the barriers to change, adaptation and transformation are actually illusions. Hence, we need to take steps towards change, adaptation and transformation.
