In the eighteenth and nineteenth century's, the Enlightenment was a term designated to the increasing amount of scientificic discovery's debunking religious theology. With humanity's loss of their once certified objectivity, the individual and his society sunk into the chaotic realm of insecurity revealing the seeds of a postmodern world. The German philosopher Nietzsche, deeming "God is dead", saw the collapse of these collective truths of objectivity, showing the meaningless of the universe. Hence he located meaning and truth to be relative to the individual with his ability to surpass his chaotic existence through the will to power.
In Nietszchean philosophy there is no absolute selfhood or archetypal basis in life. Though the duality of order and chaos exists, the meaningless of life surpasses both, showing that meaningless is a greater chaos beyond the classic duality. This meaninglessness and relativity is namely the postmodern crisis. When an individual abandons his objective notions of the world utter confusion reigns; though when a greater embrace is performed by the man in this crisis a greater wholeness can be achieved and a greater self can be created. By determining yourself as your own God, the individual, being his own creator, has no limit upon his will or desire due to there being no other absolute. Thus an individual must
surpass his chaotic reality by molding the areas of his experience to suit his ends and will, developing his ego to the highest degree. The creation of a greater self demands the recognition of no absolute but yourself and your own will, and demands the surrendering to all aspects of existence, shaping a greater being from the ashes. With the destruction of the contradictory basis an individual has took to be
absolute, a soul is to congeal his past, present and future into a whole by surrendering to it, embracing it and willing himself to become Ubersmensh.
The value of the Ubersmensh is not the acceptance of the sanctity of life, but rather the embracement of life regardless of its value. It is an embracement of the totality of emotional experience and rationalistic impulses, a realization of mortality and living fully unto that demise. The Ubersmensh is not an ideal, virtue or objective but, rather an individuals own discovery and creation from himself in his experience; not a role model but a creation of yourself as your own. The embracement of life is not the only valuable notion of the Ubersmensh, as an artist his profound flux of vision and individuality helps generate the wills of others, helping them to recognize their own potential to be the God they see. In his art, or art itself, they see their own life and the vast and incomprehensible life of the Ubersmensch. It is only to often when an eye or ear darts past what they've heard or saw in confusion, giving no thought to its greater depth but merely their own superficial label, e.g. the...
