    I think it was a joke that failed to reach the audience.

    Der Mensch ist ein Seil, geknüpft zwischen Tier und Übermensch - ein Seil über einem Abgrunde. Ein gefährliches Hinüber, ein gefährliches Auf-dem-Wege,
    ein gefährliches Zurückblicken, ein gefährliches Schaudern und Stehenbleiben. Was groß ist am Menschen, das ist, daß er eine Brücke und kein Zweck ist: was geliebt werden kann am Menschen, das ist, daß er ein Übergang und ein Untergang ist. Ich liebe die, welche nicht zu leben wissen, es sei denn als Untergehende, denn es sind die Hinübergehenden.
    The human is a rope, knotted between animal and Übermensch - a rope over a chasm. A dangerous across, a dangerous on-the-road, a dangerous looking-back, a dangerous shiver and standing-still. What is big in a human that he is a bridge and not a purpose: what can be loved in a human is that he is a transition and a downfall. I love these, who dont know how to live, unless as downfallers, because they are them who go over.

    Victor, friend is that you ?

    Only if that was also why he called him a volcanic genius. You know pretty well that he was not like that before the end of 1889.

    He called him a volcanic genius because of his deep and explosive insights into the problems confronting modern man. Schuon actually lamented that Nietzsche turned against the sacred and the divine, which in the end hindered the true greatness he could've achieved.
