There's an interesting undertone in your post that makes me wonder: "what is a superior human?"
’s seeming superior abilities does, in my opinion, align him with the aspirations of Nietzches’s Ubermensh.
Though he (this thread’s author) does not speak overtly of his superiority, he is quite nonplussed that by recounting his extraordinary
“qualities” he could be demeaning our feeble attributes by comparison.
This, in its own way, suggests that he sees his “qualities” as superior, otherwise why mention them at all? Arrogance, even if concealed
inadvertently by a professed need to employ “lesser” beings in the search for the authentication of his past, is arrogance nevertheless. He
doesn’t deem it necessary to pursue the answers to his own requirements, rather he’d see the task completed for him.
As Nietzche wrote in Thus Spake Zarathustra:
"I teach you the Superman. Man is something that should be overcome. What have you done to overcome him? All creatures hitherto have created
something beyond themselves: and do you want to be the ebb of the great tide, and return to the animals rather than overcome man? What is the ape to
men? A laughing stock or a painful embarassment. And just so shall man be to the Superman: a laughing stock or a painful embarassment".
So is omnichaotic
the fabled Superman of philosophy? Does his egotistical listing of his unstoppable sexual prowess, immense physical strength
and perfection, inherent intelligence and blatant, almost casual approach to the use of force:
I…have never lost a fight, and make people scream and cry in mercy effortless.
indicate that he is indeed the one to turn people back from the dogged pursuit of “other-worldliness” and established, religious values, and back
to the quest for Man’s power-of-will that would fire our creativity and rekindle a deference towards the earth?
In all honesty, no. thank God.
He is not the exemplar of Nietzche’s “true humanity”. If he is, then maybe it is not too much of a stretch of the imagination to envisage long
dead National Socialists weeping with joy.
The list of omnichaotic
’s abilities implies strongly a deep seated disassociation on his part with his fellow humans. Thus, evolution has no
part in his being.
