Ahahahaha. Really? All he did was go "HEY YOUR PERSONAL ATTACKS ARE PATHETIC" and give really vague defenses that didn't really make any sense at all. Don't worry, though; I just finished thoroughly decimating his inferior response (I think the part that shines out the most was where I explained how he didn't really understand what he was saying by describing MM as "Lovecraftian" at all).
By the way, I was going to get back to your VM conversation later, but I grew bored of it/preoccupied with other things. Count that as a victory, if you want, but I'm still a god: one with higher pursuits.
Intentions and motivations are not necessarily related to morality. One might intend many things with no care for the moral consequences of his intentions. Further, if one is unwavering in his optimism but lacks motivation and intent to guide it, then in my opinion that person is hindering his ability for greatness.
Motivations and intentions are irrelevant; they are immaterial things that act as chains when used as a basis for morality. If someone is smart, then that person would perform smart feats; refusing to embrace one's capacity for greatness/the will to power is, on the other hand, a display of stupidity (Whereas one who is not intelligent yet tries to be so is merely ignorant).
It seemed as though you were implying that was the situation, no? And if these masters exist, how does the stronger-minded PC player automatically qualify as one? One can be smart by nature and have the capability for great intellectual feats, but lack the motivation to acquire the tools and knowledge to do so.
This isn't anything new. Nietzsch discovered that some people are simply better than others years ago, and that's mainly due to their attitude. All life is governed by the will to power: ambition, self-improvement, and other traits that allow people to rise above the universe. The reason Nietzsch is considered so great the world over is because of how healthy his philosophy is for human beings to hold: the nihilists will wallow in self-pity, believing that everyone is "special" in their own right, whereas the masters will constantly seek greatness (Real, measurable, material greatness; not merely great intentions) with an unwavering sense of optimism
