Lust sees truth not only in direct fusion of phsycal substances determinable at the hand of their chemical properties, but also in subtler forms of energy, better comparable to the photon as a waveform than as a particle; the higher end of the spectrum, the emotional fluids and the etheric substance of thought.
There are no opposites, only gradations. Physical pleasure is equivalent to a enjoyable thought. Physical rigor is equivalent to harsh thought.
The Lust to truth is not to be seen as some vague desire for something that might or might not exist, but as the imperishable drive to procreate - to behold in that which has been created oneself.
All images perish, the eye of the beholder is eternal. All will to power belongs to the eye which exists only in beholding itself.
The lust to truth is Zarathustra's Sun, separating from herself in order to give of herself.
The lust for truth is what makes men seek the holy grail - the holy grail is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow - but truth is in the moment before one thinks of the pot - the becoming aware of the rainbow.
The will to power is the will to the pot of Gold - it drives man to all his ventures, all his discoveries and all his tragedies. The lust for truth supervises this all - in the knowledge that in this power exerted, this will, lies the inevitability of coincidental recurrence.
The eternal recurrence of the same is the inevitability of truth.
