....it is curious to realize how Jim's obsession with Nietzsche was neither centripetal nor centrifugal....while the main Sun of his intellectual solar system was The Birth Of The Tragedy,all its planets were the rest of Nietzsche's works.All were important footnotes for him,to his heliocentric logos- the most important footnotes to that world he had arrived at,like a blind seer craving the light.He might have been fifteen or sixteen years old at that time.Consider the spell that first book of Nietzsche's has exercised on the imagination of thinkers everywhere and you can begin to imagine the effect, the cosmic spell,this had on the young fifteen-year-old Morrison.Recall the opening:
"Much will have been gained for aesthetics once we have succeeded in apprehending directly...that art owes its continual evolution to the Apollonian-Dionysian duality,even as the species depends on the duality of the sexes...."Jim understood clearly that the Apollonian principle was Aristocratic,a dream realm.And the Dionysian was the Democratic principle,the state of intoxication.

Is that true, #INFj ? 😌
Ps. We have seen many INFj (#EII ) who were considering themselves thinking types, due to combination of rationality and intuition. Typically that leads to mistypes into #INTj (#LII ).
❗️But remember, thinking is not equal to smart!
Enjoy your weekend, everyone 💜
