Sils Maria is a quiet town in the Swiss Alps where Friedrich ‪Nietzsche ‬found peace.  Here he worked on a number of his books including “Thus Spoke Zarathustra” his alter-ego and an essential part of our story.  He transforms in to “Zarathustra”, embraces Nihilism and rejects the dogmas of the past.  Bathed in truth he moves into the future.  His intellect bestows on humanity dynamic and material gifts that reach out to the extremities of our existence changing us forever.
