People are always shouting they want to create a better future. Its not true. The future is an apathetic void of no interest to anyone. The past is full of life eager to irritate us provoke and insult us tempt us to destroy or repaint it. The only reason people want to be masters of the future is to change the past.
Anyone whose goal is 'something higher' must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves.
