To Be Obvious, a Matter Requires Talk

Notes by TK
Kyroot to :04.
For SL/secondary level things to become serious they must be talked about. “Advertising” is absolutely necessary in this—to keep things churned up; SL affairs are necessary in modern society, therefore advertising is not the negative process supposed. It is impossible to avoid talk; the Real Explorer should confine his talk (babble) to SL affairs, not PL/Primary Level ones. People discuss the obvious; nothing could be obvious were it not to be talked about.
The SL is obvious; PL is not always obvious, i.e., nobody discusses sex, eating etc., per se. Sexual talk is really about aggression. “Scaffolding” exists around everything; an unseen connection left standing around all City processes, like unrecorded building permits nobody can question the propriety of. The Real Explorer must be able to dismantle this scaffolding. He has a simple duty: to leave the intellectual world better.
It is necessary to change your idea of what’s big and what’s complex. The more ponderous a system is the less innovative it becomes. When an organization reaches the size to have a strictly pure R & D department (TOA/thinking of action), it doesn’t have the time/energy necessary to devote to it; R & D gets short shrift because too much of everything else is going on. Consider this internally, to become ordinarily complex with SL concerns detracts from innovation, New Intelligence, the possibility of Real Thinking. It becomes TOA requiring no corresponding talk.
There is a scale, proportion (including tempo) having a direct connection to ordinary intelligence such that when something in Life exceeds that scale (big or small) while Life still needs for it to come out thru man, the intellect’s capacity of perception reverses or inverts it. It makes the small into the large and vice versa. E.g., UFO phenomenon; myth; modern version: quantum mechanics where cosmology is the reality.
The external becomes the internal, or the internal is “projected” externally. There were no large, significant historical events that were truly innovative intellectually. One exception: wars; the objectionable generates innovation. Note the parallel in your own life/history. Only the drastic, upsetting events really bring about innovation, i.e., accidents vs. graduation from college. The Real Explorer must create silent internal warfare, small enough not to make history.
And Kyroot Said…
Over in this one place, no one wants to be seen in public.
No amount of observation will ever encompass all possible
realities unless the observation includes the observer.
Heard a guy over in the far corner say, “I’ve got it all
figured out; life here is a talent show, and the first prize is
that there ain’tù no first prize — or, maybe the first prize is
the knowledge that there ain’t no first prize.”
On this one planet they had a proverb, “There are few with
both good fortune and good sense.” And it seemed most oft
repeated by those of no fortune.
I ran across this guy the other day who is so behind the
times that to check on the weather, instead of turning on the
all-news radio station, or consulting the 24 hour, all weather TV
channel, he would go outside to see for himself.
“Remember kid,” said the unkindly ole universal voice, “if
you ain’t doing this right you ain’t doing it right.”
In some worlds, of specific dimensions, it would seem that
the only ones fully prepared for the future are the dead.
Whilst pondering his own inner, mass produced self, one
guy once muttered, “You know, there may well be something to the
idea of reincarnation cause it’s hard to believe that a person
could get so dumb in just one life time.”
To a real space traveler most aspects of ordinary memory are
just a re-fighting of the previous war.
The more complex it is the more alive it is.
While passing this rather obscure little planet one night, I
heard a little multitude of voices chanting, “A motto, a motto,
you gotta have a motto.”
No one wants to ask a cross-eyed man for a urine sample.
While standing the midnight watch at the controls, one
traveler suddenly thought, “You know it’s weird, but everything I
know I seemed to have learned from me.”
Certain new interplanetary info can take you near an
absolute realm wherein exists no absolutes.
In this one spot, hearing serious creatures discuss serious
affairs, seriously, served to remind me that “everything’s beside
It makes no difference whether you give an out-of-towner the
correct time, or not.
To ordinary intelligence, yesterday is always the “golden
age,” thus memory never gets any better in its lifetime.
Life once said to itself, “If they ever catch on,
everybody’ll become a judge or a critic.” (And then Life
thought, “Whew, it’s a good thing I’m just imagining all this.”)
In some locales, the more simplistic the action, the more
complex should be the actor.
Those with no reflections need no mirrors.
