Notes by TK
Kyroot to :06. The reality of kinship obligation and emotions of nationalism are a genetic, Life-induced, necessary biochemical compulsion for men in general, but they are not absolute. Note that exceptions abound: homicide within families, traitors betraying nations, etc., but they are always isolated, individual acts.
Actually, people are continually doing what annoys them; if it could be removed from their lives, half of their life would be a blank. A Real Explorer cannot continue to pursue activities that do not feed his interest in This Thing, i.e., annoying himself. The reverse of abandoning what you don’t like, is to undertake unnecessary small tasks.
No one criticizes from the basis that they too suffer from the flaw criticized in another. Criticism is always the tacit statement, “I am everything you are except your shortcoming, your flaw, that’s how I can see it in you; I am more complete.” Clearly this is attempted compensation for the one criticized, for why would anyone say anything about a completed process? Completed processes disappear and cannot be perceived, to then be commented upon.
And Kyroot Said…
Is it possible that obvious information, for which the old
intellect cannot account or satisfactorily analyze, might offer
unrecognized travel tips to neural explorers? …and Kyroot
added: Perhaps a more residential version of this query might
come in handy for the do-it-your-selfer, so how ’bout this: On
more complex orbits might controlled irrationality be evidence of
one’s sane nationality? Might the non-seriatim lay the tracks
for the straight-away?
If you learn something extraordinary and then don’t become
extraordinary, you’ll lose it.
This one little fellow who was accused by his cohorts of
being bland, shallow and intellectually inert, finally produced a
come-back by one day announcing, “If god had wanted me to have
opinions he wouldn’t have given me some.” And his brother was
damn near killed by the resulting “droll explosion.”
Every-o-now-and-then the revolution seems to come up with a
jerry rigged PR attempt, although, no one much seems to notice it
and we all seem no worse for the try.
Over near that long wave galaxy, this one being who
sometimes shows specific signs of sagacity has taken to saying to
some of his closer associates the following, “The past is
finished, done for, all washed up — now’s the time to forget
If an artist doesn’t like his work, the simplest cure is to
talk about it.
An apparent nephew of one of the Fortunate Five Hundred
Soreheads, whenever he’d hear someone say, “Well, I can’t say’s I
blame you,” would think, “They’re just not trying.”
Almost every morning, this one guy would stand before his
full length mirror, stretch out his hands and sing out, “Are we
not handsome?” Then one day, he changes it and says, “Are we not
brilliant,” and his brain sez, “What’da mean, we?”
In ordinary Earth affairs, men are inclined to shout out,
“Waiter, more of the same over here — much more,” while a
revolutionist would look for a back way out.
Just as an ordinary artist is struck dumb when asked what an
abstract painting means, so too might a revolutionist be non-
plussed when asked — even by himself — what anything means.
(Soon after finishing this particular written note to you, a
passing squint-eyed stranger glanced at same and conclusively
commented, “If things don’t mean what they mean, they don’t mean
shit.” You know, it’s fairly uninteresting what you can’t learn
from strangers if they don’t pass fast enough.)
(Chew on this in somebody’s spare time:) That guy that just
left, the one who was very tall by the punch bowl, I heard him
say that he’d waited so long by the gates-of-anticipation that he
no longer knew what to expect.
In matters apparently literatim try this on: The proper,
revolutionist use of the “Preface” would be to promise that which
you perceived most profitable should be promised, and then go
on to write what ever you please.
Attempting to analyze three dimensional affairs with the
sight of but two eyes is not much of an improvement over what
you’ve got now.
For his own personal purposes, a real revolutionist could
probably find himself to be a viable alternative to most
A man that don’t look in the mirror ain’t got nothing to
There is suffering and there is secondary suffering. Of
what interest is the latter to us?
When asked point blank, almost everyone will say that
they’re now in the “second stage” of their life. Is that cute,
If your intelligence isn’t industrial strength, it’ll never
get in and clean out all those dirty corners, or strip off that
old waxy build-up.
A newly arrived explorer in the forward system, explained
his departure from his former home when he noted that it had
become so peaceful that they had to ship in turbulence.
May I conclude by offering this neural consumer tip: It may
prove an illusionary bargain to purchase discontinued
