Man's Final End isn't in God ...

                                      As unified pure spirit set in space,

                                      But in the Superbeings of millennial futurity,

                                      That post-human epoch in time

                                      Which more accords with Eternity.

                                      Man's Final Overcoming is in the first

                                      Of our two projected post-human life forms -

                                      The artificially-supported and sustained

                                      Brain collectivizations of the Superbeings,

                                      Who will be as much above transcendental man

                                      As tree-living apes were beneath pagan man,

                                      Being a completely separate species of life,

                                      Not beastly but divine, not animals but gods,

                                      Knowing little of and caring nothing for

                                      The world of man, that passing show

                                      In between pre- and post-human life forms,

                                      Never more strictly itself than

                                      In a Christian, humanist stage

                                      Of its painful evolution, when man

                                      Was the relative measure of all things relatively.

                                      Even the Supermen in the first stage

                                      Of ultimate human civilization,

                                      The Centrist civilization of a transcendental age,

                                      Will attest to man's overcoming

                                      To the relative degree of post-humanist affiliation,

                                      An affiliation that will become

                                      More radically post-humanist with the second stage

                                      Of Centrist evolution in hypermeditating Supra-men,

                                      A pre-millennial stage that will lead

                                      To the Millennium-proper, and so

                                      To man's ultimate overcoming

                                      In hypertripping Superbeings, who in turn

                                      Will be overcome and superseded

                                      By hypermeditating Supra-beings

                                      In the second stage of the post-Human Millennium,

                                      The pre-heavenly stage leading directly

                                      To the Beyond of spaced-up pure spirit.
