“But what is this will to power? It would be a mistake to think of it as a drive to secure some stable state of power, in which we would then squat contentedly. In this universe of flux and endless becoming there is nothing static. To be in a position of power is continuously to exercise power. Power itself is the discharge of power. Power, then, is the will to power in act, willing itself toward further power, and so on endlessly. The will to power is a will to will. It wills itself endlessly in a void from which the very notion of ‘the true world’ – of which earlier philosophers dreamed – is denied it, and which it in turn defiantly denies.”
