Kyroot to :04. The messenger who carries the news has gained in reputation; movie-star status for news-anchors such that they can lose the trust of the public with their indiscreet behavior, yet all they do is read the news! In general there is an unspecified almost vague, expanded importance to information transmission agents; why is this so?
“Psychological” explanations of the process of reversing energy current by imitating another’s behavior, are satisfying at the ordinary level. Beyond that however, the Real Explorer can push further to realize it is not satisfying because it’s an unrecognized dead-end, offering no possibility of change while yet appearing to do just the opposite. To See, for instance, that the controversy between genetics and environment is a specious cul-de-sac, is not ‘either-or’, nor both, is to accrue the benefit from an unknown encouragement transcending all motivating factors.
And Kyroot Said…
So that you won’t get too discouraged, I will tell you that
there is at least one place in this universe where people who say
they “don’t wanna talk about” can!
After his initial exposure to several spectator sports, one
fellow stood on one leg, raised an arm up and said, “What I’d now
like to know is where are the referees and umpires in the game of
In this one zone I passed through, they won’t allow a
countdown unless a blast-off is forthcoming.
In the future people won’t have to study the past under a

If you tried to call everyone by their proper job
description, your social life would likely suffer therefrom.
Those who call today the “Age of Information” and consider

information they’re receiving.
While buffeted by the flow of everyday events, one ‘ole
supreme sorehead would sometimes mutter, “I couldn’t be less

The further you get from your own locality the more songs
A certain non-renowned thinker on Planet Arid, when
confronted with a particularly viscid question, would rejoin the
inquiring party by saying, “Put that in a digital form and I’ll
One real ugly guy stood up and said, “I resent being called
ugly in print.”
Some galaxies have words that don’t mean anything… (Some
galaxies are not as far anyway as you might think.)
In certain parts of the universe, density is held in higher
esteem than in others.
A language that has itself as its only point of reference is
a self renewing resource in a shoebox.
In some districts of the universe the opposite of talking
about something is not hearing about it.
If you can get back down from there you weren’t very high to
From a more enriched local view, the silliness of it all is
the reality of it all.
After overhearing remarks regarding people “talking to
themselves,” this one ole dude thought, “Boy, that wouldn’t do,
for me, for as hostile as I am, I’d sure enough end up in an
armed confrontation with myself.” After a further bit of
pondering he also thought, “And hell, no matter who won, I’d for
sure regret it.”
In this one time zone, a fellow said, “Reality is the
totality of facts, not things,” and a cohort injected, “Reality
is the totality of thought, not facts,” and a third guy,
obviously either in a hurry, or on to something added, “Reality
is the totality.”
“Out there” is someone else’s play. “In here” is our
intrusion into the proceedings.
