More on field of vision overlap. Eyeballs must be separate to give 3-d view; two positions physically required, two perspectives for full dimensional potential to be realized and available to the Real Revolutionist. Not necessarily an opposite view. The Real Revolutionist has got to be a Noah and bring onto his Ark two views of every creature (everything of which you can be conscious).
Without two you don’t have any; you can say you’ve got a creature on board, but if you don’t have more than one, it is as good as none. Example of radio: two views: as an advertising medium, and as an entertainment medium. To have only one view of anything makes you defenseless — vulnerable to criticism, both external and internal. This is an unknown law of physics.
One view is unsatisfying—always; but it is also very attractive, having converting appeal of the “truth”: the power of one-sided molecular genetic persuasion/affiliation. Catholicism is a genetic strain, as are all cultural/racial groups. Ordinary view is a dead view, but it is what attracts the ordinary multitude; the all-or-nothing view—be saved or damned—is very powerful.
Consider the silent, forceful molecular assault followed by backup ‘talk units’; marine shock troops hitting the beaches, followed by propaganda/verbal support. The individual I, personality, is a verbal measuring device for Life. It faithfully and submissively provides continuing reports/commentary on what has happened: opinions of events.
Personality never fails and never rebels against this duty: behavior in the center of the bell-curve. By this reportage (thinking of action) Life keeps a necessary separation within the growth of its Body, just as separate eyeballs preserve the function of 3-d sight. Consider separation spatially and temporally. Yet two views in fact is extremely unnatural. Example of ‘not important who you vote for as long as you vote’ being behavior far removed from the heart of the bell-curve, yet sounding true and believed by all as such.
Pictures of yourself = picture of past behavior = backup ‘talk units’; turning reality into history and history into reality. The Real Revolutionist can individually fill/obliterate the gap between action and TOA (Thinking of Action); annihilating both produces a third possibility which turns the corner—falls into the overlap of the two fields of vision; the equivalent of a green lens and red lens producing 3-d movie.
…and Kyroot noted:
As you hear and consider my latest series of communiques, I
remind you that just because something makes you laugh does not
mean that it’s a joke. Even my stories and comments that seem
most immediately humorous and obvious have another intent, and do
offer normally unused measurements regarding the height, width,
depth and times of Life.
Some of my notes could be 4-D-satires on Man’s apparently
correct beliefs, while others might be involuted parodies on the
seeming incorrect. I may directly speak for ordinary Man and
express his accepted “truths,” then again I might offer up the
same fare in a manner both inside-out, and outside-in. All in
all, I may reveal the silliness of the obvious, and then again,
expose the transparency of the silly.
So, even though you may receive pleasure on the aural
surface of my comments, remember such acts as hiding poison in
the rats’ cheese, and stuffing vitamins in the dogs’ yummy

expansion in motion is in having Man continually mis-identify the
foe. As in mistaking genetic balls for cultural serves.
Those outside a particular dance can never understand, or
appreciate the intricate, subtle steps involved between the
partners. The Peoples of one State are astounded and filled with
wonder at how their neighbors tolerate their unruly monarch. (I
know you say you want to understand the exotic and the

There are some things worth doing that are not worth setting
out to do.
Wearing the garb of a “wise one,” an ole feller strode up to
the edge of the village and loudly proclaimed, “I do not expect
to come here and be able to sell you a parcel of warts and
boils,” and subsequent events proved him correct.
There was a certain City Doctor of Melancholy, I mean,
Philosophy, who conjectured that, “If one becomes TOO boring one
could cause it in others.” Heavens!
As a would-be Revolutionist, you cannot allow yourselves to
simply be “blown about” by every little wind of certainty.
A sore-head-City definition: Greed, one of civilization’s
better alarm clocks. “Get up, get up, it’s seven o’clock; good
bye Morpheus, Hello Dow and Jones.”
‘Tis been said that “Man is born free, but is everywhere in
chains,” and I expound: “Change was born dollars and pounds, but
is everywhere in nickels and dimes.” I say, pardon me, but can
you break my twenty? Not A twenty, but MY twenty.
Your Revolutionist conduct of today will be forgotten
tomorrow. Behave as a Revolutionist nonetheless.
Heard a man in the City express his concern over the fact
that opposites do not seem to always receive equal coverage. For
instance, he noted that store signs that say, “Open, Come In,”
never on the reverse side read, “Closed, Go Away.”
There was this other poor chap in that same City who began
to have someone else’s day dreams.
Reasons aren’t everything.
Always remember: The best way out IS the best way out.
Another significant, long-awaited, and, I might add, sorely
needed book would be the one entitled, “How To Look At Stuff.”
A broken heart is a terrible thing to waste.
On a certain quite real, quite cellular level, Men equate
fame with power; hence they worship, submit, to their
measurements of celebrities. (You might further note gossip as a
low-level form of submission.)
Your success in the Revolution is not controlled by the
failures or breakdowns of any Institutions, or organizations but
Attention, attention, Official Warning: According to some
late breaking, reliable reports, in certain parts of the City,
reality is loose and spreading quickly.
If you think you should probably say that “You’re in
charge,” you’re probably not. If someone else states that they
are, you should probably take some heed.
Let us not fail to take note of one of the City’s Great Mis-
Expectations: The contrast between what Man is made to say he
expects and what he gets.
Tell, pray tell, what ability is there but natural?
There can be no freedom for those in the serene embrace of
the Dominant-Submissive Dance.
The only law worth a gott-damn to a Revolutionist is a self-
made one. (Is also the only kind applicable.)
As close as a Revolutionist might come to what others call
“evil” would be in withdrawing his basic awareness from
something; a form of denial which is far removed from the
creative charge of those truly called.
All present conditions are proper and functional and do not
require change. All change is proper and functional and does not
require change, or explanation.
Perhaps you were propitious to correct my rhetoric, but why
shoot me in the liver?
How’s this for horizontally curious: Those with nothing
generally have nothing to say.
If you actually insist on trying to ride some of your City
dreams, at least don’t put ’em up wet.
The Real Revolutionist expects no sacrifice other than the
