Kyroot to :05.
If the scheme for human progress began with its centerpiece as nature, then humans (family, tribe etc.), and finally the state with its institutions, what would be the next stage? The next center for human activity is human intelligence; individual, private enjoyment of internal intellect.
More on the problem of an Real Revolutionist in a position of authority needing to exact high standards from his underlings in City endeavors. The more complex must guide the less complex. Life is arranged in levels, tiers of complexity from the extremely simple to the extremely complex. The elements of the strata are in constant flux, acting like “upstairs slinky’s” flip-flopping over one another as their complexity increases. The more complex are charged with the influence, the repositioning, the pushing and feeding of the simplistic, whereby the simple benefits. All growth/movement is toward greater complexity. All dreams for wealth, power or fame is the seeking of more complexity (by at least ceasing to be the current simpleton you are). Consciousness, driven toward complexity, cannot perceive of anything more complex than itself and thus imagines “god” beyond itself.
The supreme efficiency in exercise of power would seem to reside in an absolute monarch. Yet until a monarch dilutes his power by sharing it with the people in one form or another, there are acts they will not tolerate, conditions they will not suffer, no matter his absolute power. Monarchs must pay their mercenary armies and loot the village crops to eat, while democratic governments can utilize conscription and voluntary taxation of wealth. Internally, splintered/shared rule makes the populace suffer and sacrifice constantly since there is no absolute power to appeal to. Ambiguity, dilution of power in humans is Life’s supreme efficiency.
Sound business advice in the City: don’t present your boss with unspecific complaints and verbal abuse about the company; he has no choice but to fire you—you are fatally flawed in his eyes. Consider what the people do in the City: constant unspecific complaining (in the form of prayer to god, etc) about displeasure in their job, i.e., their life, yet they ask for help! Do not whine, complain and criticize; Life can’t help those who do.
And Kyroot Said…
There’s a certain nexus twixt speech and reality appreciated
by none but the Revolutionist.
A guy declared, “I’m not going to do something simply
because of biological urges”, and a passing Revolutionist was so
staggered as He tried to contemplate the alternatives He fell
into the foyer of a post-modern skyscraper.
Those of the City who take advice from their peers certainly
NEED it…deserve it…will get it, and no doubt pass it on.
Thought one starry night I heard a Revolutionist tell some
of His Troopers, “I realize that most of you believe I have no
interest in what you do personally, but hey, I got hardly no
interest in what I do personally.”
If you’re convinced you have something to prove, trust me,
it’s already proven and probably obvious to all but you.
Another nominee for the Safe Statement of the Month Award:
“I could be wrong.”
And yet another father, as he prepared to send off his son
to his first City studies, counseled him thusly, “To give you
some idea of what you’re in for over there, consider this, the
fight song of most schools is “We Surrender”.
If you’ve had more than three partners die on you, perhaps
you’re in the wrong business…(or standing in the wrong place in
There’s this other guy, just off shore of the New Hebrides,
with a phone, who sez that you can call him up when you’re out of
sorts…(and he’ll never mention suicide).
The difference between a fanatic and a Revolutionist is that
he isn’t correct.
And the partners conversed yet again, “Hey, you can’t HAVE
it both ways.” Second voice, “If you’re normal, you mean?”
One guy, out in ye ole City Park, by way of encouraging the
spiritual philosophy he was touting, would periodically yell
out, “Submit, submit…give in”, and sometimes when his half-
sister was there she’d chime in, “You’ll like it, I did.”
A rhyme-a-day, and all-that-improvisational-stuff: Those on
crusades have had their days (but I’m not a one of them).
Just so’s all my usual talk about the City doesn’t get you
down, let me tell you ’bout this dude I met last time in a small
room. He calls his best pair of dress-up socks “Ray & Earl”
(although he did add that these are just nicknames and not their
Any guy that’ll step right up and tell you what kinda guy he
is ain’t much of a guy…or is “QUITE A GUY”.
While in the midst of a difficult and painful endeavor, for
encouragement, a man declared, “Well, I’ll just reach down deep
inside myself — WHEW!, it’s yucky down in there, no WONDER I
feels so bad.”
A dead tyrant is a happy tyrant…(that is, of course, just
one outsider’s view).
I met a fellow who says that one among his several hobbies
is to introduce his neurons to some other new ones…have ’em
make new friends.
At a City rally a speaker cried out, “You can do ANYthing
you wanna do”, and a kid in the crowd thought, “Yeah, ‘cept what
you DON’T wanna do.”
A Real Revolutionist is a person who can stand on His OWN
