The Ancient View of the World

Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), Notebook 28 [40] (spring-summer 1878; tr. Ladislaus Löb):
To regain the ancient view of the world! The Moira really above everything, the gods the representatives of real powers! To become one of the ancients!

Die antike Weltbetrachtung wieder gewinnen! Wirklich die Moira über allem, die Götter Repräsentanten wirklicher Mächte! Antik werden!
Capitalized, Moira = Μοῖρα, goddess of fate, but with the definite article I somehow would have expected the plural Moirai (Μοῖραι).
