Nietzsche’s Abyss (by Springheel Jack)

By -

My favorite line from Nietzsche's writings is 'when you look into an abyss, the abyss looks back into you'. What did he mean? There's been much discussion. He had syphilis (which attacks the brain in the late stages), and I suspect may have been doing some powerful drugs during his most creative period, but I think what he probably meant was that that if you look into your dark side too much, then your dark side may come to dominate you. Certainly true of some famous Nietzsche enthusiasts, Hitler in particular.

We're looking into a different sort of abyss today, but as I was considering the potential abyss below on EURUSD particularly this morning the quote came to mind, so I thought I'd mention it.
