In the noonday sun…

We have abolished the true world: what world has remained? the apparent one perhaps? … But no! With the true world we have also abolished the apparent one!

(Noon; moment of the briefest shadow; end of the longest error; high point of humanity; INCIPIT ZARATHUSTRA.) [Nietzsche, Twilight of the Idols, “How the ‘True World’ Finally Became a Fable: The History of an Error”, 1889, sec. 6. (Kaufmann trans.).]

We exaggerate humanity’s (no, man’s—no, men’s!) capacity for light. The ladies giggle from the shade.
