Nietzsche said: “I want to learn more and more to see as beautiful what is necessary in things ..."

Nietzsche said: “I want to learn more and more 
to see as beautiful what is necessary in things; 
then I shall be one of those who make things beautiful. 
Amor fati: let that be my love henceforth! . . . 
And all in all and on the whole: 
some day I wish to be only a Yes-sayer.”

With Keats Nietzsche is the herald of Triadic Philosophy
Nietzsche sees the realm of human activity is the Aesthetic
the place where truth and beauty become one
Henceforth moralism is a silly endeavor
Whether something is true and beautiful or not
says it all
Some see beauty in everything
Amor fati means love your life

Those who practice Triadic Philosophy also see
the ugliness in harm   
and the effects of harm over time 
Beauty then is prospect
transformation
where none seemed to exist
It is here that the values that 
are universal
tolerance democracy
helpfulness and non-idolatry
cast their shining light 
on the thought 
that leads to what we will

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
