'NOW do I die and disappear,' wouldst thou say, 'and in a moment I am nothing. Souls are as mortal as bodies.
But the plexus of causes returners in which I am intertwined, - it will again create me! I myself pertain to the causes of the eternal return.
I come again with this sun, with this earth, with this eagle, with this serpent - not to a new life, or a better life, or a similar life:
- I come again eternally to this identical and selfsame life, in its greatest and its smallest, to teach again the eternal return of all things."
- The animals to Zarathustra. Thus Sprak Zarathustra. Freidrich Nietzsche.

'in the beginning, there was darkness'
Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
