Plato Meets Nietzsche + Nietzsche

de Ştefan Bolea

 

listen to “satan prayer” in notre dame

“cake and sodomy” in saint-severin

“cold last supper” in sacré-cœur

I’ve seen the snake on the cross seen Jesus fall

turn the churches upside down and drill with their spires until the underworld bleeds

and an army of rats defile us with unholy ghost

Miss Ives: “Do you truly not believe in heaven?”

The Creature: “I believe in this world. And those creatures that fill it. That’s always been enough for me. Look around you. There are sacred mysteries at every turn.”

Miss Ives: “But no exaltation in life beyond this.”

The Creature: “To see a world in a grain  of sand, and heaven in a wildflower. Hold infinity in the palm of your hand. And eternity in an hour.”

Miss Ives: “With respect to Blake, I see no wildflowers here. Only pain and suffering.”

The Creature: “Then you need to look closer.”

I’ve seen the devil in the mirror

God in the mirror

I’m not from here

everything but the world beyond the mirror has a funeral stench

Bedelia: “You no longer have ethical concerns, Hannibal. You have aesthetical ones.”

Hannibal: “Ethics become aesthetics.”

If I were paranoid, I would claim that Hannibal, Penny Dreadful and the first season of True Detective were created based on my psychological & philosophical profile.
