Nerds for Nietzsche.

i'm confused
 — unknown

confused...Nietzsche's word....but shan't find it in a dict. Latin origin, ispe 'self', viz.  ipso facto, ipse dixit, eo ipso, ipseity. I must own, ipsissimosity sounds better poetically than ipseity.

I think this'd be good if I had any clue what the fuck it meant. But, hey, you're probably smarter than I am.

Download Answers.com toolbar and you will never need to ask for word meanings again. BTW, I wager you encountered this word in Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil; or perhaps in an essay about Leo Strauss?

This poem inspired me. I don't know how many dictionaries ( both online + off) I consulted. Thank you for the poem, Hank. It's lines 6+7 which have me bugabooed. Ipsissim(o)us makes me yearn to write about  my ouroboros.

Perfect poem
