about

"What, if some day or night a demon were to steal after you into your loneliest loneliness and say to you: 'This life as you now live it and have lived it, you will have to live once more and innumerable times more' ... Would you not throw yourself down and gnash your teeth and curse the demon who spoke thus? Or have you once experienced a tremendous moment when you would have answered him: 'You are a god and never have I heard anything more divine.'"

— Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science

"I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! I do not want to wage war against what is ugly. I do not want to accuse; I do not even want to accuse those who accuse. Looking away shall be my only negation. And all in all and on the whole: some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer."

— Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science

"My formula for greatness in a human being is amor fati: that one wants nothing to be different, not forward, not backward, not in all eternity. Not merely bear what is necessary, still less conceal it—all idealism is mendacity in the face of what is necessary—but love it."

— Friedrich Nietzsche, Ecce Homo

lyrics

LYRICS:

used to hate life, now it's amor fati
will to power like i ran mordor, stop me
my whole dojo got that amor fati
and more mojo than a condor probably

used to hate life, now it's amor fati
nietzsche atop a dinosaur, watch me
my whole dojo got that amor fati
and more mojo than a condor probably

Nietzsche said become what you are and love your fate
so here i am caressing the soul of Jordan Bates
on some future shit, Kurzweil with cyborg traits
concocting more elaborate labyrinths than Jorge Borges
Phillip K. Dick, hear voices through brain antenna
A more novel occurrence than prophesied by McKenna
So down with partnership cultures, I'm Riane Eisler
SF Renaissance 2.0, text Jack Spicer
or make a Facebook Event, invite Gary Snyder
combusting tea with Sal Paradise, where's the lighter?
type of ape to invite a reverie like Coleridge
then pull a Tao Lin and draw a mandala quick
then tweet some witty alt lit shit, Melissa Broder
or maybe some philosophy jokes like Corey Mohler
Snapchatted a shattered urinal to Marcel Duchamp
with the caption, "who's anti-art now, n00b-sauce?"
I'm Ai Wei Wei destroying an ancient urn
burned so many herbs with Ginsberg, I'm taciturn
But still got the magical will, son (Wilson), Bob Anton
they can't see me, even in a panopticon

used to hate life, now it's amor fati
will to power like i ran mordor, stop me
my whole dojo got that amor fati
and more mojo than a condor probably

used to hate life, now it's amor fati
Nietzsche atop a dinosaur, watch me
my whole dojo got that amor fati
and more mojo than a condor probably

as the world turns it's #FeelTheBern
i'm 20,000 fucking leagues deeper than Jules Verne
Wilde said give man a mask and he'll speak truth all day
So I'm cloaking self in more disguises than Daniel Dumile
or Keith Thornton, you know the Octagonecologyst
I'm Mary Doria Russell, novelist-anthropologist
Eddy Bernays couldn't manipulate my unconscious mind
and i stay iconic for peace with Dalai Lama rhymes
Like Wendell Berry already opposed to the next war
liberating bodies like Foucault with my sex roar
Nightmares of bureaucratic prisons, Franz Kafka see?
But let food and walking be thy medicine, Hippocrates
No sophistry, simple wisdom, Bodhidharma
Alan Watts self-responsible action, the true karma
Post-rational insight porn, that Sarah Perry swag
But more humble than Lao Tzu, I mean I rarely brag
Will to soul power, I'm KOOL AD or Joe Tex
And I meditate on Moloch, word to Slate Star Codex
Rap game Yasutani Roshi, Bodhisattva
Gautama under the fig tree attaining nirvana
No Sylvia Plath, may her spirit slumber peacefully
I'm Bucky Fuller, reject suicide, create gleefully

used to hate life, now it's amor fati
will to power like i ran mordor, stop me
my whole dojo got that amor fati
and more mojo than a condor probably

used to hate life, now it's amor fati
Nietzsche atop a dinosaur, watch me
my whole dojo got that amor fati
and more mojo than a condor probably

used to hate life, now it's amor fati
Nietzsche atop a dinosaur, watch me
my whole dojo got that amor fati
and more mojo than a condor probably
