Orthodox Christianity FR. SERAPHIM ROSE, PART II - THE VALLEY OF DEATH There are no eternal facts, as there are no absolute truths. Freidrich Nietzsche There is an old illusion. It is called good and evil. Freidrich Nietzsche The world is beautiful but has a disease called man. Freidrich Nietzsche I was in hell. I know what hell is. Fr. Seraphim Rose During these years in San Francisco, Eugene Rose studied with Alan Watts and Gi-ming Shien at the Institute of Asian Studies. And he earned a master’s degree in Oriental languages at UC Berkley, gaining fluency in ancient Chinese, and studying Japanese, Latin, and Classical Greek. In addition, during this time he learned Sanskrit on his own. Eugene supported himself by working as a busboy and as a janitor. It was during this period that Eugene’s existential and personal anguish became overwhelming. His desperation became so acute that at times he felt he was losing his sanity. Lacking any unifying worldview, having long before rejected the insipid, humanized western Protestantism of his childhood, he abandoned himself into a wasteland of alcohol abuse and sexual debauchery.

In addition to his explorations of ancient Chinese and Hindu spirituality, he inquired among various pseudo-religions and New Age movements and the gurus who were flocking to San Francisco in those days. Pursuing philosophical humanism to its logical endpoint, Eugene became absorbed in the existential writers of nihilism and absurdism—Nietzsche, Kafka, and others. One evening, after having immersed himself for hours in Nietzsche’s Thus Spake Zarathustra in the original German, Eugene took a walk in the city. The sun was setting “and the sky became blood red...He heard Nietzsche’s poetry resonating inside him. He felt that ‘Zarathustra’ had actually come alive and was speaking to him, breathing words into him.”* Thus it was thus that the infernal nature of nihilism and its suzerainty over the Mind of the Time was revealed to Eugene. From this profound experience sprang, much later, his incisive published works denouncing modernism and its devastating effect upon the soul of contemporary man. *Father Seraphim Rose: His Life and Works.
