      I was a teenager when I first saw the book "Thus Spoke Zarathustra" on my mother's shelf in my hometown, Yazd (an epicenter of Zoroastrian belief). At first, I imagined the book to be the words of the prophet Zoroaster. The more I read the book, the more I realized its irrelevance to Zoroastrian beliefs and finally my mother told me that "this Zarathustra is not that Zoroaster".
    Later I read more about Nietzsche, whose interest in the world of art and imagination attracted me. Specifically, his view on self-awareness and understanding of time and power have fascinated me, as these subjects have continuously challenged me throughout life. Recently, I rediscovered Nietzsche and a new opportunity to dive deeper into his ideas. "ECCE NIETZSCHE" is MY visual understanding of his philosophy and one day might come when a teenager takes my book out of the shelf and her mother has to tell her that " this Nietzsche is not that Nietzsche".
