The TWE ( To What End ) of “out there”: without it man would not struggle to alter his planetary conditions –‘environment’–for the better (in a Yellow Circuit manner). He would be non-verbally fatalistic, animal-like. The consideration of This Thing as: what to do vs. not to do, is connected to should we look to the future or to the past? What is the nature of the connection between these two sets of questions?
Internally, is the molecular talk primarily about what should be done or not be done? Is the looking primarily to the future or the past? To What End is it so arranged that you can suffer over what you’ve done? All “to do-s” are ultimately unsatisfying and everybody is concerned more with what not to do vs. what to do. All ‘to-do’ is not legitimate/useful info for the ordinary because it’s impossible. Life designs it so; a masterstroke. What actually succeeds becomes extinct. The Real Revolutionist ‘extincts’ himself.
The past speaks only in regrets—of negative info and unworkable plans. The future never speaks so. Man cannot properly speak/think of the future. The Real Revolutionist should be working on what to do; truly look to the future.
The “Stop” method is rebelled against by the nervous system because it gives insufficient energy/info. It always must ask: stop…what? The Real Revolutionist must stop the “wanting to stop”. Wanting-to-stop interferes absolutely with just stopping. The Stop method produces Real Present—a feeling of being alive and cut off from the past.
Note: To What End does Life have even some involved in Group believing still that J. actually criticizes anything.
1:26 Excursion for NP: pick out something in your life to apply the stop method to. Then write a letter to the editor of local paper about how you’re going to stop whatever you’ve picked out to stop.
And Kyroot Said
Only the Revolutionist, well after adulthood, and despair,
can be told to “grow up,” and fully understand what it means.
Tomorrow is the solution to all problems. Not “Tomorrow
BRINGS the solution,” or, “CONTAINS the solution,” but is itself,
The Revolutionist has no duty to report dead bodies.
If a Real Revolutionist DID decide to talk to you, at least
he wouldn’t waste his time and yours by actually telling you
There is a certain way in which the Revolutionist can
willfully use the feast-famine-feast-famine cycle.
It could aid you someday for me to already point out that
Life wastes as much time as anyone else. (Of course, Life does
as much of ANYthing as anyone else.)
As he peruses the Daily Report, the Revolutionist is not
obliged to make editorial comments.
The City notion of anthropomorphism IS one small step toward
a more meaningful triad.
No matter where you go, what you order, or how much you pay,
in the City you always get leftovers.
Extreme reversals are terrible things to waste.
To roll consciousness up into the fetal position is to leave
it staring at it’s own private parts. “WOW, what a treat.”
The Real Revolutionist, to use some City lingo, must be a
“hip square”; hip enough to understand the apparent difference,
and square enough not to care.
In the City, if you don’t know enough to talk real loud, you
don’t know much.
Thinking is mostly a waste of time, (at least the way YOU do
Never honor the regressive, or salute the derivative. We
are not here to celebrate the inferior.
Don’t guess most of you’ve noticed, but, all human labor and
activity is just rearranging other people’s stuff. Work never
produces new stuff, simply new distributions.
With some in the City, if they’re not careful, their
thinking-of-life-and-action-function will ultimately attempt to
simply “phone their life in.”
The Past is where everything turns to nothing, and then back
into something, (at least, something RESEMBLING something).
It is difficult to codify proper Revolutionist behavior in a
complacent, binary world.
Until Ralph Lauren or Bill Blass goes into the philosophy
business, don’t believe anything you hear in the City. The
“truth” is one thing, good taste, another.
Most everybody has a drug; most just haven’t been noted yet
by the FDA.
Anything native to the City doesn’t count.
At the very LEAST, don’t be less than you already are.
If you gotta talk about “it” to make it feel right, you got
no business doing it.
Always think of other possibilities not as sequential, but
You should learn to treat your ole City-self like a store
owner would his merchandise, “Hey, it’s just business, nothing
The first Revolutionist step to solving any problem is to
realize there is actually no problem involved. Nothing can be
fixed ’til you see it ain’t broke.
Beware, the wet dreams of the mind.
Yet another potential Revolutionist motto: Leave everyone
the hell alone. Then after lots of good practice, leave yourSELF
the hell alone.
A Real Revolutionist operates normally on his second wind.
The only real, lasting difference between a Revolutionist
and everybody else is just what you’d expect.
