Kyroot to :04. There is an intrigue/fascination with, and perplexed questioning by the more complex human, of primitive peoples’ beliefs, i.e., “do they actually believe that? or is it a metaphor, or just primitive, childish dreams?” It is then a small step in life for the sophisticate to have a consuming interest in such questions, to embellish theories and interpretations of meaning about them.
It is the fascination of the more advanced civilization with primitive myths, ideas; an amazed incredulity at them and spinning of interpretations regarding their possible helpful insights for advanced man. This is all useless for a RE/ Real Explorer. The primitive is useless to the RE, including imagining what possible profitable significance it may hold.
An unrecognized cosmic law: the proof of something’s existence is in the fact that you or someone questions the validity of it, questions its existence. Remember: locally, everything exists. The only real question is “how useful is it?”. If it’s primitive it’s not functional. The more intellectually sophisticated you are the more attracted to primitive, simplistic info you are.
Local reality is the enemy of New Info, Why would a New Intellect want to be his own enemy? New Intelligence = New Info.
Losers get the most out of wars—at least they get something to talk about: history. There is no real advantage to winning, it has no mystique, just losing does. So, whether you win or lose, you lose! Consider the internal application.
There are two odors related to people’s talk about themselves:
1. bragging over Secondary Level accomplishments (odor of the unnecessary to survive);
2. boasting over PL/Primary Level accomplishments, e.g., parenthood (this carries the odor of the necessary).

One fellow, in noting what he calls, “the weirdness of
words,” says ain’t it strange that a “rude awakening” can be a

other way around.)

was, “Please Don’t Talk About Me When I’m Gone.” (Upon
reflection he did add that his absolute favorite was, “Please

One well meaning guy (I just said that, I don’t know whether
he was well meaning or not, but anyway) this one guy, in this one
part of this one galaxy said to some ears around him, “I’ve got
so much to tell you I can’t do it all right now. In fact, it’s
so much, I can’t even tell you later. Tell you what, it’s so
muchù that I just won’t tell you at all.”
One guy said that what made animals so cute is that they
don’t have a brain so as to pretend they could ever be other than

“Yeah, but humans having a brain and believing they canù so change
is what makes them so cuddly.”
After hearing an expert mention the number of cells in the

and shouted, “I want a recount.”
