Triumph of the self. In the end, this realization [the topic] comes from a Nietzschean context, and that reminds me of the example of Napoleon, whose history is also the history of: "the supreme happiness this century [the XIXth] has attained through its men of valour and its moments of brilliance."
Indeed, this man brought the death of millions, massive changes throughout Europe and an astounding legacy of the glory one man can achieve, wholly through the powers of ambition and self-confidence. He believed in nothing but himself.
Once nihilism has become the default philosophical stance, there can be little room for sacredness (perhaps only somehow ironically, as a recognition of a higher state of being and acting, but definetly not upholding it as an absolute), in my opinion, but - once the fatalistic stance has been overcome - there is the possibility of endless exploration of the ideals and mental designs we can apply to the environment we interact with, through eugenics, art, philosophy, science etc....
Fuck God, fuck sacredness, onward to new battles and human evolution through "aristeia" (excellence). After all, Nietzsche admits one of his conclusions holds that the "real man represents a much higher value than the "desirable" man in one or another of the known ideals" [...] "that the ideal has been until now precisely the disparaging force of man and universe, the poisonous breath onto reality, the great temptation of nothingness..."
If I'm missing the point of the topic, then may I ask, what does God represent that has died and should be replaced? From the beginning I supposed that this was a question of ideals.
