  • What is Life?

  • For Nietzsche, it's that which overcomes itself.

  • It eats itself and births itself, getting more powerful with each iteration.

  • Man came from ape, but what comes after man?

  • Nietzsche would say that it's the Overman.

  • The Overman is the next evolution of Life, and it'll be more powerful than anything

  • we've ever seen.

  • None of us can be the Overman, but we can be the catalyst for it.

  • We can become the fruit that carries the seeds of a sweeter future, the fertile soil from

  • which the grandest tree grows, and the clouds out of which the lightning comes.

  • But, before we can give birth to the Overman, we must first become free spiritswe must

  • become fertile soil.

  • In this video, I want to go over the three stages that the spirit must go through to

  • become free.

  • When the spirit comes into being, it's confronted by the great, golden dragon.

  • The dragon is beauty and terror, awe and fear, protector and destroyer.

  • It's decorated with thousands of glittering scales, and on every scale, all of the things

  • that you must do are written.

  • The dragon says thatthe value of all things, and all things of value, have already been

  • written on my scales.”

  • The spirit is filled with awe and respect for the dragon, but in realizing the greatness

  • of the dragon, it realizes its own inadequacies.

  • The spirit wishes to serve the dragon and learn everything that it must do, so that

  • it may take part in its greatness.

  • The first transformation takes place, and the spirit becomes a camel.

  • The camel is a preserver: it studies, absorbs, and upholds the values of the dragon.

  • It's disciplined.

  • It maintains order in the realm by bearing the burdens of others.

  • It takes pride in its ability to bear burdens, and it should.

  • In many ways, this is an act of heroism.

  • The camel bears the burden of others and, in doing so, lightens their load.

  • But, eventually, the camel realizes that not all things should be preserved, and some burdens

  • are too much to bear.

  • It realizes that it's become a slave to the will and values of another.

  • The camel is merely a tool.

  • The dragon which once allowed life to survive and thrive is now the thing that holds it

  • back.

  • The camel yearns for freedom, and so the spirit must transform again.

  • The camel, a beast of burden, becomes the lion.

  • The lion is a destroyer.

  • It confronts the dragon, and for everyyou shall”, it saysno”.

  • To everyyou must not”, it says “I will!”

  • The lion stands against tradition and the status quo.

  • It starts to see certain traditions as unworthy of being preserved.

  • Instead of serving the dragon, the lion battles it for freedom.

  • In this moment, the spirit must learn to destroy the thing that it once respected the most.

  • This is difficult because overcoming the dragon means that the lion also has to overcome a

  • part of itself.

  • But, this isn't the end.

  • Like the camel, the lion is a reaction.

  • The spirit is still tied to and dependent on the dragon.

  • But, this battle for freedom, the courage to say no, opens up a new space of possibility:

  • if destruction is possible, so is creation.

  • If we can fall, then we can rise.

  • A third transformation must take place: the lion must become the child.

  • The child is a creator.

  • Creation is redemption.

  • All of the mistakes of the past, including our own, can be redeemed if something better

  • can be made from them.

  • The child must learn to forget the past and not hold resentment to those who came before.

  • Those who came before did, after all, fertilize the soil out of which they grew.

  • Every form of life, preying on each other and giving birth to one another, led to the

  • birth of you.

  • Can you redeem all of their pain and suffering?

  • Can your life be used to create something that benefits all of Life?

  • The child is a new beginning.

  • It lives by its own values and its own will.

  • It has the potential to redeem the past and give birth to a brighter future.

  • The camel, the lion and the child: these are the three stages that the spirit must traverse

  • to become free, but most people never even become a camel.

  • The story of the three stages is the story of self-overcoming; it's the story of the

  • one who can become tradition before overcoming it.

  • The one who can overcome themselves becomes more powerful, and through creation, they

  • can make all of Life more powerful.

  • They can redeem our sufferings.

  • Who among you can become the overflowing cup from which others can drink, the ocean that

  • can't be contaminated by a dirty river, and the sun around which the planets revolve.

  • Like the sun, can you shine unconditionally for all around youunconscious of the good

  • you do.

  • Those of you who can are the storm cloud out of which the Overman

  • will thunder.
