Here is the embodiment of Nihilism, perhaps the ultimate diabolic expression: Life moves nowhere; there is no plan, no telos; the present circulates endlessly, repetitively, and the matter of the world itself is falling down into the abyss. Within this bloodless ontology, two brothers who survived a religious, “utopian” experience in the 1880’s are devoted to stubbornly perpetuate themselves in a world marked by monotony and lack of action. The worn-out bodies of the Schweikhart brothers – the last witnesses of the Arian community founded by Elizabeth F. Nietzsche in 1887, in a place that was known as Nueva Germania – seemed to be destined to putrefaction, just as all living things surrounding them. (Roger Koza)
