While spying on the spies and evading landing spaces, here is Nietzsche’s take on heights with a little bonus from me.
“Before my highest mountain I stand,
and before my longest wandering:
to that end I must first go down deeper
than ever I descended:
Whence come the highest mountains?
I once asked.
Then I learned
that they came out of the sea.
The evidence is written in their rocks
and in the walls of their peaks.
It is out of the deepest depth
that the highest must come to its height.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, “Thus Spoke Zarathustra”
sunk to new heights,
climbed to new depths,
created perfect landing places,
and now we live as if waiting
for the load to drop.
