      ~ As an ontology*, even Nietzsche's metaphysics is *at the same time*
      theology, although it seems far removed from scholastic metaphysics.
      The ontology of beings as such thinks essentia* as will to power.
      Such ontology thinks the existentia* of beings as such and as a whole
      theologically as the eternal recurrence of the same. Such
      metaphysical theology is of course a negative theology of a peculiar
      kind. Its negativity is revealed in the expression, "God is dead."
      That is an expression not of atheism but of ontotheology, in that
      metaphysics in which nihilism proper is fulfilled. ~

      "Nietzsche", by Martin Heidegger, Vol.4, Nihilism,
      from Part Two, Nihilism as Determined by the History of Being [p210],
      tr. Frank A. Capuzzi, published Harper & Row, 1982.

      This passage produces sparks in my philosophical cells, and nothing
      more developed ... as yet.
