When truths cease to be transformative they are bereft of meaning in Nietzsche’s view. Ironically, the transforming potential of truths may in part be due to their immutability, for if the world is indeed characterized by constant change, as Nietzsche suggests, then truths, while not being able to halt change, can have an effect on how human beings participate in it, even if it takes the form of resistance. Nietzsche would not deny that this is the case, but would suggest that we bear the manipulative intention of truths in mind, so that if need be, new ones can develop.
In his later writings, Heidegger more strongly underscores the point that human beings cannot and do not think on their own, but rather are incited to think by Being. If his works are marked by an increasing preference for poetry as a form of expression, it is because he believes that such an art is more attentive to its muse, namely Being. While in Being and Time he insists on the importance of thinking about the whole, in his later writings he reminds us that thinking about the whole is also a way of listening to it.
An eternal cosmos can never be known, for we must straightjacket that which we wish to make knowable. This remodelled Nietzschean metaphysics is captured most eloquently in his metaphor of the eternal return of the same. Rather than referring to a transcendent realm which is used to judge our worldly existence, Nietzsche suggests that the activity of life itself is eternal. We participate in eternity because the world that we are part of undergoes constant transformation, and this change is wrought both on and by limited beings.
