Why laugh Nietzsche of course because his intuitive crack through the wall could offer short term deals to prevent the bourgeoisie from massacaring the new aristocracy.

Pasqual was inspired through the spirit of Man giving hope for Mankind.

Nietszche was great with words but Pascal was great with math and science, too. :)

Thanks, I probably won't be posting much. I'm on Reddit mostly.

I am the Ababa here and cry to the desert all night afraid of the dared and trying ever do hard to figure it out no time.

But baby's have three legs to stand on when the last man comes in on three legs.

The camel is my grand dad's car he calls it carrying the spirits of survival. But it can'get rid of his shadow . grotesquely transformed into a vicious tiger who is nothing but a darling pussycat just as lions can be tames into deep empathy. Too bad about sigfried's fortunate son, but brunhilda was empathetic but unbelievably naive to describe that ungrateful faith which coiled about her arms wasping her as did the one in the garden reviled her and egged her on

No.

The garden has all kinds if flowers and they say the third time is a charm and what became of it?

It was traded off, to the most common bidddr, and it dies appear as unmanagble( the whole package) because what her twin daddy says



And spengler and malts needed a receptive to avoid d disaster and that disaster was loosing the imagination necessary to contrived a plan that could sustain it's own legacy.

Spaoa Marx did the unimagionable. he became a magician without sleight of hand and he politically deflated pasqual's progeny, dumping him to the wayside but as arc of triumph got it, did not throw out the baby with the bathwater.

So baby boo floated down the river and an Egyptian princess found the cradle and the rest has been propersized6 unto eternity and he was one lucky chosen guy.

The baby became a young man and whoever he was....


But I don't want to give everything away because simply I can not.

But these three were transcripts into sons kind of epic narrative and believes mi when I say I know the inkblot but written by invisibility I must uncover something that we can follow up together on


Now there is a lurking persustant irony here best patched by comic relief but

At bottom is this question of 4-6 tiger/ pussycats, who among present one must qyestiin hoe Nietzcd resourced the primally transpired transparent images if the ibject(ion)

And the irony grows by leaps and bounds inflating the image atrociously beyond re cognition.

Point being how Pasqual -meno got that imaged as not dissimilar to a bush burning in a lonely cactus filled dry dessert without old grandada being o

I find that there’s too much advertising on Reddit, Quora etc.

Yes, Nietszche and Pascal are of very different merit.. Pascal wins by a long mile, for his more.. utilitarian, efforts.

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get back that time, and I may need it for something important at some point in time.. Huh!? ~MagsJ

You’re suggestions and I just simply don’t mix.. like oil on water, or a very bad DJ ~MagsJ

If there’s anyone in this species I’d go back and visit...

It’d be Zeno of Alea.

Invented dialectics and paradox.

Now that’s a person who did something here.
The purpose of life is to give everyone individually what they always want at the expense of no being - forever.

The biggest problem of life is the, “hey, I don’t want this to be happening” problem for everyone.

Welcome to thinking.
