Notes by TK
Suggested title : Back to the Premise
[Kyroot to :05.]
The “Faux Fallacious” or “Nutso” method: announce, proclaim a knowingly, willfully incorrect statement/answer. This “FF” method gives:
1. time/breathing room.
2. opportunity for unexpected connections.
3. prevents ordinary repetition.
4. allows a silly freedom from ordinary seriousness. In your use of the method you may well find that the bogus answer actually has some merit even!
Is any/all knowledge the opposite of ignorance? Any knowledge, i.e., speculative, specious, inaccurate etc.? In the City, knowledge must be agreeable and expected in order to be accepted as fully compensating for ignorance. Consider: does ‘ignorance’ exist as a noun? Is it a thing? Note that it cannot exist without some human to be ignorant. But ignorance is treated as a thing, a commodity in the City. It is actually a verb, a process and there is no cure for verbs. The Nervous System makes nouns of verbs; takes verbs as nouns. There is no cure for ignorance at City level. Knowledge and ignorance are conditions of the Nervous System; misappropriated adjectives.
It is possible to be engaged in physical activity without thinking. It is possible to be ’emotional’ without thinking; but it is impossible to be intelligent without thinking. This last is unknown in the City; ordinary intelligence does not require thinking, only some success. If you look closely, clearly, you will see that you have never been any more intelligent than your birthright, despite all manner of increase in learning.
The premise for any story is the story! The premise = the conclusion. Any decent story must have a premise (set-up, plot) and a conclusion/payoff, but in the City it is never seen that they are the same thing. The premise must be saved to last to be effective, to make a story. In a real sense everybody is running backwards from the conclusion (premise/knowledge) to the premise-ignorance. All human intellectual activity is the disguising of the premise as the payoff/conclusion.
And Kyroot Said…
Don’t mull on anything that’s liable to mull back.
Another ole timer, sitting in the shadows of the City Park,
head in hands, was heard to bemoan, “It seems like my skull is in
port while my mind is the Flying Dutchman.”
One slant-minded student of the past recently stated, “I do
find the broad picture of history benign, but I must admit that
specific epochs make me a bit uneasy.”
One City father’s parting advice to his yearling, “Let a

After reading a book and taking a look, a Man asked his
cook, “Is it considered couth for words to ever completely part
company with reality?”
Those who know, know, and those who don’t, argue.
Approaching the windward side of the Bushes, I heard a voice
cry out, “I would rather be wrong with a Real Revolutionist than
be right with a band of angels, a flock of philosophers, and a
herd of gods.”
Is it not droll, if not interesting, how, as their hormones
are running down, many Men discover the profit AND ability to
curb their tempers and appetites.
“Bilateral interlocked appeasement, say I, IS the
solution,” proclaimed the member of the senate, “And further, say
I — what IS bilateral interlocked appeasement?”
A fairly intelligent Man was once assailed thusly, “You only
skim over the surface of ordinary human affairs”, and to Himself
He mused, “Well, you skim over whatever’s available…the surface
is all there is, ole sport.”
Have you ever noticed that most of the things people do on
their knees they like to do in private?
One bloke, perhaps revolutionarily influenced, labeled His
own particular efforts as “an amusing bit of wrestling with one
little piece of time”.
I am disturbed by the similarity of the words “fame” and
For those of you who’ve ever seriously wondered if you were
“on the right track” — well, there’s your answer right there.
The blood of Man is liquid history.
Listen, the sooner you get this through your head the
Question Number Blah-De-Blah: Can one cause passion without
oneself being a carrier? (How ’bout same question but regarding
What’s best for the most won’t butter your toast.
A young nephew asked his uncle, “Say, how do you get to be
an uncle?”, and the older one pondered for 2 or 7 seconds and
replied, “Through genetic chance, a favorable planting season,
and daily, diligent practice”, and the lad admitted, “That’s SOME
answer, Unc.” “That it is, me lad.”
Bullets can be a useful memory aid.
A Real Revolutionist is simplistic, AND complex beyond
