Our Optimism (a clarification)


Nietzsche affirmed that the pessimism of his culture was derived from a feeling that the world no longer had the value that it used to be thought to have had.[i] In the same way, we announce that our new optimism is derived from a feeling that the world is now becoming important again, perhaps more important than it has ever been thought of before. But not only that, humanity itself has also become more important than ever before. So important in fact that we are essential to everything.[ii] The initial result of this: everything is worthwhile again.

This is our positivism, inspired by the search for new values derived from authentic needs.

We are not talking about an egotistical anthropocentrism but a realisation of the absolute need for human (sapiens) qualities in order to manifest Being in the universe. As we explained in our article on Uroboric Will: “A need for intelligence is, in the Uroboric universe, an instinctive drive, coming from an instinct for Being and a sense of the most necessary potential.”[iii]

What we are pointing to might is a vision of a completely new era in which the anti-historical process that has brought us here will have to be left behind. We will need to sever our ties with our past, but without losing touch with it. Knowing is remembering, it is never forgetting. That which is forgotten becomes the unknown and loses being in time. Permanence is a human virtue.

One thought on “Our Optimism (a clarification)

  1. paul …. you are right > this is the most important point in this planets history !
    but only if enough would take the chance of doing so > not if we are waiting
    for it to happen > not if we wait for those billions to end all life
    and this is what I am seeing ….

    we would actively need to bringing forth solutions
    we would need to openly talking about this insanity
    and why this is happening !

    we would need to make reality >>> a reality !
    then and only then we could bring about a paradise on this planet earth
    other wise there will be hell coming up > literally > around 100° c hot >
    with boiling oceans ….
