Through the eyes of the great ape

If the Revolutionary goal “beyond Nihilism” is described in precisely contrary terms, and if Nihilists actually see it as a reign of “love,” “peace,” and “brotherhood,” that is because Satan is the ape of God and even in denial must acknowledge the source of that denial, and–more to the present point–because men have been so changed by the practice of the Nihilist “virtues,” and by acceptance of the Nihilist transformation of the world, that they actually begin to live in the Revolutionary Kingdom and to see everything as Satan sees it, as the contrary of what it is in the eyes of God.
Fr. Seraphim (Rose)
