    "Os is de Dood"

    In 1996, the year I first smoked weed, I had a lot of great evenings with Mitra and two other guys born in the same month. We smoked weed and just constantly laughed about idiotic things as that goes until one night Mitra took some mushrooms. I remember sitting by his side all night as he was empathically relating evidently very profound emotional insights, or stabs at insights, about the word Chaos.

    I remember distinctly that he saw a duality within the geek word, where the first part, Cha, was something that remained unresolved, but the second part, Os, was death.

    I had recorded the whole evening on my high 8 camera and then even typed it out, but somehow in great tragedy, both sources got lost. NOOOOO!!!
    terrible loss. Truly, as if anything the comedic and atmospheric value of it all was sublime.

    Still, "het is niet onopgemerkt gebleven."

    Luckily I have a good memory! But first off, all three of us other guys were born in August, but really only two of us in the same month, i.e., the August of the same year. Anyway, here's my memoray:

    That was not the first time I took shrooms. For all I know it may have been the second time, though.

    The Chaos thing was something like this. For me it was just about the "Cha-" part, XA in Greek. The "-os" part was just the exit, and hence "death". It's that in which the XA part ends--flows out into the sea of silence, so to say. As for the XA part, not knowing the origins of the X symbol it was just the "Big Bang" of the whole word for me, the way the A emerges from the void--again the sea or ocean of silence. The essence of the word was really the A, which I knew to have originated from a drawing of a bull's head... Chaos for me was really the raging bull. Now, though, I know the stem of the whole word is really the X(A) part. Compare:

    "The will to power takes the place which the eros--the striving for 'the good in itself'--occupies in Plato's thought. But the eros is not 'the pure mind' (der reine Geist). Whatever may be the relation between the eros and the pure mind according to Plato, in Nietzsche's thought the will to power takes the place of both eros and the pure mind. Accordingly philosophizing becomes a mode or modification of the will to power: it is the most spiritual (der geistigste) will to power; it consists in prescribing to nature what or how it ought to be (aph. 9); it is not love of the true that is independent of will or decision. Whereas according to Plato, the pure mind grasps the truth, according to Nietzsche the impure mind, or a certain kind of impure mind, is the sole source of truth." (Leo Strauss, Studies in Platonic Political Philosophy, "Note on the Plan of Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil".)
