humankid

Lucien is different or at least his egocentricity is different, he hates himself intensely, whereas we do not. Hating himself as he does, hating the ‘humankidness’, he seeks new vision, a post-human post-intelligence. He wishes more thn Nietzsche proscribed. He wants more than the next mutation- he wants a post-soul. Lord only knows what he wants!
—  Jack about Lucien Carr in a letter to Allen (september 1944)
