In our episode on the non-philosophy of Laruelle, Jeremy mentioned a section from The Gay Science that was important to Laruelle's reading of Nietzsche. Verse 346 and the verses that precede it tie together many important strands in the Acid Horizon extended universe; they form a thread which runs through our episode on Laruelle and Deleuze's attack on the dogmatic image of thought which we covered in our D&R reading group. This excerpt also includes Nietzsche's notion of "the greatest weight", which is one of Nietzsche's more notable sections of text within the broader arc of his anti-moralism. Together, verses 341-346 act as nice complement to some of the work we and our patrons find exciting.
