Kyroot to :05. Another aspect of the cultural-myth/molecular energy needs of man as shown in the Norse myths where the only ultimate form of reward or power exercise is to die heroically. For the Real Revolutionist, heroic death is equivalent to thinking when it is not necessary, right up to the last breath. Ignorance (flawed info) is always going to win over intelligence in the same way that death always prevails physically.

To be driven by chivalrous myths as opposed to the Norse ones gives the illusion of a willful choice to sacrificing oneself to the inevitable triumph of one’s enemies. But it is illusory because you’re going to die anyway; it is a moot point: no choice is possible where death is inevitable. Chivalrous myths give a kind of feeling of accomplishment where the Norse myths are more profitable for a Real Revolutionist.

TWE/to what end? do experts insist to others that their talent, expertise, knowledge, is no “mere gift”; that it required sacrifice and hard work? Again it is an encoded message from Life regarding ‘freewill’. Note there are no myths of mere mortals acquiring divine gifts at next to no cost/sacrifice to themselves.

Human myths are not cultural phenomena, they are molecular necessities containing/conveying the message that one force will ultimately win, i.e., good will triumph over evil (Christian) or vice versa (Norse, Germanic). This cannot happen however without Life’s own demise. The knowledge that ultimately nobody’s going to win would freeze up the machinery of Life’s growth, and thus all intellects are designed to ignore it.

The potentially most profitable myth for a Real Revolutionist is that of Valhalla, the place where victorious, fallen heroes bide their time until ultimate evil wins. It is the concept of heroic death, the hero, laughing even as he goes down in defeat. Connection to the Real Revolutionist merger of aim and execution, the disappearance of the gulf between outcome and action. There is no ultimate difference between defeat and non-defeat. This is the heroic death: victory through defeat; the knowing fighting of losing battles = winning the battle. There is no separation between victory and defeat.

Upon first hearing the axiom, “Having the right tools is having the

In what I suppose was a fit of well-meaning allegory, a certain father
told his sapling, “Son, if your name’s Natty Bumppo,
get thee to a place of fiction – quick!”

While recently out of the galaxy on an important, non-existent business
trip, I ran into a gang of interstellar, out-law-accountant bikers who recognized me, and swore of their interest in matters “out of the galaxy, important, and non-existent” (just as I mentioned). And to evidence their claim several of them rolled up their eye lids and showed me their team tattoo which read,
“Plurality of thought, singularity of purpose.”

…and Kyroot said:
A certain intergalactic gadabout, told me soto voce that in his desire
to remain widely welcome in his travels, and true to his
allegiance to progress, that in the many conflicts that
arise here and everywhere, between “bullets’ and the flesh” he always sides with flesh. inasmuch as bullets’ can’t remember, and flesh never forgets.

While accidentally attending an unfitted seminar over near the Zone Seven landfill, a gentleman cornered me in the hall between the unscheduled lectures and told me that he was almost “certainly certain that god is
trying to communicate with man
through human speech.”

Another deity I met, (whose family coat-of-arms bears the epigram,
“We Don’t Mind Being Divine”), said he’d heard of my other recorded notations regarding his particular undertaking, and he said he wanted to go on record by stating that what he liked best about being a god is that “everyday is pay day.”
…(0h, and he also adds,
“Plus, you can’t be fired.”)

A certain burly green-grocer, obviously miscomprehending the intent

One of the cuter aspects of humans is that they, without exception, and without hesitation, all believe that to “work on oneself ” means to be “down on oneself.”

Whilst lunching the other Saturday, I was seated next to a welder who had tattooed on his forehead, “Shake Well Before Using.”
