Kyroot to :05. An operationally useless name for This Thing: “The continual thinking when you don’t have to”. When it comes to thinking, everybody can quite efficiently ‘coast’ thru life, i.e., you don’t need to think…all the time! Therefore any thinking then can be Revolutionary thought, can be thinking beyond the necessary.
People write and talk about thinking but they really only think about the lower circuit functioning, i.e., feeling. Humans are not designed to think about thinking. The Real Explorer must think universally in every instance; must loose himself from the automatic binary fission conspiracy captivity everybody faces unknowingly.

If you faithfully hold on to what you got, at least you’ll
always have what you got.
I heard of this one world who apparently aspired to
complexity if not more, who sponsored a planet-wide contest, the
premise of which was to guess the premise of the contest. (The
grand prize was getting to make up your own contest.)
On many routine worlds, you can’t leave unless you know
where to go, and on a few special ones, you can’t leave unless
you know howù to go.
Don’t think of yourself as special unless you really are,
and even then, don’t.
Those who don’t think about thinking never mention it, and
those who have trouble thinking say it is hard work to do so, and
those who actually can simply enjoy it.
Locally, the evidence of anything’s existence is in the act
of you questioning its existence.
A new intelligence would see Life as neither hostile nor
supportive, but merely as an environment.
A guy in a far time zone who claims to have “really been
