One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star. -Nietzsche

Differing Souls

We politely and lyingly explain the difference in preferences of art and intellect by saying tastes differ. This is a cloud of octopus ink behind which to vanish, for this explanation doesn't attempt to get at truth, but to avoid offending by tacitly implying that all choices and realizations are of identical quality.

Nor is this mere bigotry favoring the intelligent over idiots, for plenty of smart people spend their energies pursuing sports, celebrities, movies, shows, and intoxication.

One must also have a curious soul, invigorated by delight to discover what is best in life and to seek its most rewarding examples.

Most choose novelty, allured by the new and fashionable, even if meaningless and of low quality. Peasants entangle themselves in spiritual poverty seeking shiny trinkets, unable to discern what is valuable from the trivial.
