Notes by TK
Kyroot to :07.
The “TWE” method: (T)o (W)hat (E)nd; non-judgmental questioning of why are things arranged by Life as they are. Example of the idea of “lying”; to what end does Life allow ‘lies’? There is no lie until it is discovered as such.
There is an ‘out there’ as an alive medium of energy transmission. Question: how can you explain disparate groups–genetically unrelated –suddenly, upon colonizing a new land, feel nationalistic ties of kinship? It happens via their new ‘environment’ —it is an alive medium which can effect virtual instant genetic change that would normally take a generation or two to accomplish. The Real Revolutionist must be able to alter the contours of the frontier between himself and ‘out there’, the boundary between his physical self and the environment/not-I. Only then can new info be transmitted/received.

And Kyroot Said…
Man is made up of just ordinary “stuff,” which explains MORE
than a lot.
Yes, I know I seem to have this desk, but I assure you, I do
not work here.
Any Real Revolutionist knows that you cannot do anything for
the “general good.” Even the attempt can be disastrous. To try
and help another human requires not the services of a swordsman,
but of a micro-surgeon.
Some time back, I heard a certain Revolutionist’s step-
brother state, “What’s all this rot about the difficulty of
‘knowing yourself’? All you’ve got to do is just look at
everybody else, and — there you are!”
If you still got “stuff” you had from before, at least don’t
In all of the mortal City-States, they are divided into the
pushers & the pushed; the takers & the taken, the cons & the
suckers, and they are, one and all, the work-a-day products of
Life. And I ask you: Is it possible to ascertain which of these
binary groupings the manufacturer favors? And not only “can you
tell,” but do you really want to know?
Everybody LOVES grandma after the fire; Oh yeah, it was
EVERYone’s favorite couch: and, “My late husband was a great
American.” (…did you get it…well, did you?)
At certain unpredictable times, some People in the City
momentarily feel as though they’re better than they are. A
rather harmless, passing anomaly, I suppose.
The well done sailor’s only task is to nail the coffin to
If you look REAL quickly, just before sundown on a rainy
day, you can see that the rules of the game ARE the game.
In the City, all “fields of knowledge” are either narrow &
deep, or wide & shallow. The Revolutionist, however, needs a
reservoir that is chartreuse — no, but you can fill in the
Leftovers are a terrible thing to waste.
So-called “flaws” are one of the most important mediums of
information in the system homo erectus.
In the City, ALL behavior is compulsive behavior.
Next to the question regarding, “windows” on the
application, a Real Revolutionist might write in, “I don’t do
reminisces, and I eat nostalgia for breakfast.”
Ofttimes hand grenades and placebos have the same effect.
Another singular aspect of this kind of Revolutionist
information is that it never has a moral to it.
Whilst traversing the long hallway of Life, I happened
around a sudden curve in the truth.
A virtue named is a virtue no more.
When you know enough you no longer have to pretend to know
more than you do.
Don’t you just “love it” when City folks talk about the
“threat of ignorance.” Talk about a PROVEN “hollow threat”…
The past is littered with the dead.
While I push speech to its metaphoric breaking point, you
must learn to do likewise with your own Yellow Circuit activity.
Develop a kind of parallel thought process.
Paradox and irony are goods only visible to binary sight.
Read in a City book the following, “Nothing is more useless
and unnatural than Man struggling against a Law of Nature,”
except, I do add, that it is natural for Man to do so.
To a Real Revolutionist, EVERYTHING is fungible.
Don’t try to analyze a tyrant, and never dance with a
A dog once came upon a pile of horse shit, crossed himself
and said, “Blessed Mother, God Himself passed this way.”
All ordinary arguments are simply failures of the
Dominant/Submissive Dynamic to find its proper level.
Although it’s of little consequence with others, a
Revolutionist shouldn’t mistake losing for winning.
Beware, the hair balls of the mind.
