When we choose the word will as in the will to truth, we suggest a truth in the sense of an end, a truth beyond our present state. Truth here is external to the body - it is metaphysical.
When we use the word lust as relating to truth, truth becomes something wholly different - as lust is inherent in the body, truth can not be metaphysical.
Truth as we know it is in refraining from judgement, in contemplative experience of becoming - which means active / physical / transforming contemplation.
Opposed to this stands the otherworldly ideal of a platonic truth, a state of perfection. This will to truth as aimed at perfection is born of the fear of truth as we see it. The cause of this fear - the terror of this truth can easily be explained;
Truth as an object of lust is the perfect awareness of the imperfect.
This is how we see being imposed on becoming - no thing exists - only existence exists. It is entirely fluid - all solids in one's perception are due entirely to deformations of the perceptor. Truth is not at the most fundamental level not in the eyes of the beholder, it is in his body - his awareness
Truth is not something which can be understood. Something which can be very well understood, however, is the means to truth, which is lust.
This, then, is the use of the lust to truth as a formula;
It draws the attention to the means towards the state of empowered flux-consciousness I call truth.
The end of the doctrine as a means is the same as the eternal recurrence of the same - it is a weapon against laziness, weakess - against belief.
