    Hi Wade,

    << Nietzsche did too !
    If you dismiss any conflict possible you " de- nothinged " ( what a word !)
    the " to be " ( Heidegger), you make everything completely worthless_
    but everything, as a consequence, transforms itself than in some kind of
    The process of nihilism according to Heidegger, don 't end up into nothing-
    ness, there is still a " no -side " about nihilism possible.

    Meaning, the end wouldn' t end despite the fact there is nothing there !
    The existence of the nothingness is a fact just because of the existence
    of itself !
    The nothingness as such and as itself will never ceast to exist.
    I wouldn 't call this ydillic, but there you are !
