To-day we live so cowed under the bombardment of this intellectual artillery that hardly anyone can attain to the inward detachment that is required for a clear view of the monstrous drama. The will-to-power operating under a pure democratic disguise has finished off its masterpiece so well that the object's sense of freedom is actually flattered by the most thorough-going enslavement that has ever existed.
- Oswald Spengler (1880-1936)
I can hardly mention mountain top without thinking of Friedrich Nietzsche who is perennially profiled in the Q3 and Q4 editions of Quaternion Correlations. Driven by the simplistic data contained within a date of death and birth respectively, the latter takes precedent as the corpus of work comes to a conclusion for any and all intellectual giants, Newtonian and otherwise.
What do Nietzsche, Gauss and Hegel have in common? They weren't born-rich they were Fried-rich. OK bad joke, I know. Bad jokes are are in the Oikos of planksip®. Signature move you may call a blunder but blunders have a way of sticking around. Ask Einstein. This is a small blip. Thank you for participating.
