Nietzsche and Gurdjieff both saw time as cyclic. In their eyes, we live our lives again and again through infinity. In Gurdjieff's view we have the possibility to learn and change through the endless turnings of the wheel. In Nietzsche's case, we are hopelessly to follow the same course over and over again. Out of these scenarios springs the idea of "Amor Fati'- loving your fate. As I understand it, one loves one's fate because it is the highest perfection in a universal progression, and of course, because it is inescapable. In this sense it's a little like the idea of Karma, only without being able to know the direct cause and effect of things.
