This Thing Cures No Ills, Rights No Wrongs..

Notes by TK
Kyroot to :03. The strangeness of This Thing, if you find it so, is that it does not purport to cure any ill, to right any wrongs. All entertainment/self-help activities purport at some level to cure an ill. Of what benefit is This Thing when it doesn’t serve any local purpose (i.e., cure an ill)? Can anyone be helped when it is not so intended / stated at the outset? Note that it happens all the time.
Note that the intention to go do something known to be useless never arises. The locally “obvious” is always what is in the observer’s best interests to observe it so. The RE/Real Explorer has got to see that everything’s obvious (or equally obvious). He must see he is not the ill to be cured and not equipped to effect a cure even if he was the ill. This is the level of the “super obvious”. Everything is in the RE’s best interests, non-specifically, non-locally.
The difference between men and women is obvious even beyond the physically obvious. The difference: men/sperm-cells want release and travel: women are available “destinations” (at the cellular level as well as physical). Everything beyond this is DB/dry brain, SL/secondary level web-spinning over the WB/wet brain primary. The ‘difference’ between men and women is seen as an ill to be cured or ignorance to be alleviated!

other one replied, “And why do you think anyone wouldù cry unless
there was something foreign and irritating in their I?” And the
first voice said, “Cute, real cute.”

As always, what’s so tempting about it is that it’s so easy.
“Hey, this ain’t no experiment.” “Oh yeah, don’t be too
sure.” (Author’s post script: Doubt is not always demanded.)
