Getting rid of Plato (to think like Zarathushtra) Part 3

"Ethics" is a heavy book but Parviz will be able to handle it. It's an amazing challange.
Parviz is absolutely correct:; It was Gilles Deleuze who pointed out that Spinoza and Nietzsche are brethren (even though Nietzsche who lived in the 19th century also said so about Spinoza who lived in the 17th century) and the most important anti-Platonists. Nietzsche also knew they were both making philosophy in relation to Zarathushtra and Zarathustra's questions (The Gathas arrived in Germany in the 1860s and Nietzsche was a professor of PHILOLOGY originally and not philosophy, so he was a language expert and knew the Avesta well!).
We have just tied this thread together, the Mazdayasna history starts with Zarathushtra and his contemporaries in Central Asia and its "modern western equivalent" takes shape in philosophers such as Spinoza and Nietzsche and their 20th century megaphones Deleuze and Richard Rorty. And we still have "Platonists" with their dualist idea that the ideal world is superior to the physically existing world to fight against. That is what Mazdayasna is all about.

Spinoza's "Ethics" is absolutely excellent for insomnia. ZZzzzzzz. I am all for letting some else read it then write me a book report. I will not deny that I find Spinoza's teachings to be insightful and all around superb, however.

Now I may be ready to try reading some Spinoza, I may start with his book Ethics. Do you have any other recommendations?

… ARMY OF LOVERS’ CLONES are as French résistance. French communist Michael romances with positive lad from positive French Gestapo. Local stripper Sarah is busy worker. Female Polizei is in jealousy. Unhonest Owner of Milk Factory is only one negative person. There is no blood and horrors in the story that is the result of mobilistic philosophy. Do you want Whole Clip script, Alex? And what about the Romanovs and The communists who live in complete peace or BWO, VACCUUM and ARMY OF LOVERS members as heroes of fancy tales?

…What are scientists Children of the knowledge Primal seed of cosmical machine Schemes and terms from sky laboratories Investigation‘s brought by Creator‘s wit
Physical aspect and lace of metaphysic
Supreme touch urges to create
Science wit knows sense of moving
But Divine can’t be proved by theme
