Beyond the philosopher of the future
We have to go beyond Nietzsche's philosopher of the future, who he defined as being a creative genius and the center of a value theory. Nietzsche did not really see our evolution to Godhood as the goal of mankind's individual and collective efforts, he thought as far as the superman creator of values, which was not high enough. Even the “high and noble cultures,” which at least early Nietzsche affirmed, did not see the goal of Godhood in evolution. The creative genius and superman are only temporary---although important---stopping off places along the evolutionary way to Godhood. In a healthy culture with the long view, all social, religious, government, and educational arrangements ultimately relate to evolving to Godhood. This is solid ground in defining noble and ignoble cultures.
