transgression and superego shamanism

in the first section of this paragraph, Nietzsche addresses the psychology of transgression and its broader meaning in terms of pushing the wheels of history forward.  In the second part, he merges more into what I have come to term “superego shamanism” — detailing the cost of this knowledge that one obtains through transgression.  The gold finally attained — let us say by a successful shamanic crossing — is the knowledge that one creates the world, but first one must pass through some difficult processes, where reality seems to be made up of invisible laws.  Indeed, that view and that process are not wrong at all as there are such laws  which command the majority: for instance, the subconcious need of most of humanity to suffer for any freedoms.
