Exploring Truth

May 12, 2018

The Gay Science

Nietzsche challenges us to find truth separate from what we use to live (121, The Gay Science, gai sabor [dandy] [flaneur]). How can we do that? By creating life distinct from ours. But how would we communicate with that life, without trapping lessons back in what we use to live? That is the challenge. Like the hope some hold of something completely alien, novel, from a visitor from another planet. Something so distinct and original. We must create a completely new form of communication to uncover a truth separate from what we use to live.  [the striving of poetry?] Is truth that important? It is a frontier, for exploration. Like space, like the depths of the ocean.
