Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. Life makes huge use of complex backup systems. Note that all localized “devolutionary activity” have no lasting, pervasive negative impact. From a more complex view such apparent anomalies evoke “so what?” Life has so many backup systems, most unrecognized and even unidentifiable, indescribable to men, that localized devolutions are of no consequence.

Life is so complex, rich, that it has backup systems unrestricted to human logic, i.e., seemingly totally unrelated to what they backup; they can handle anything. The Real Revolutionist must be complex in the same way to protect himself from all local negative impacts–i.e., he must be continually thinking more than he needs to.

A R.R. must be able to go beyond mere survival of the negative event (which is all the ordinary are capable of); the Real Revolutionist must become better for them, even to the point where they become in a sense pleasurable. The Real Revolutionist must learn to ignore the dead-end miraculous (e.g., the continued speech of Orpheus’ severed head), i.e., the present, which is outdated and useless.

The Real Revolutionist knows he cannot conquer the True Enemy. Question: is knowing this the same as knowing that the True Enemy will conquer him? Is there only win or lose without middle ground, a Tertium Quid, an unexpected third relation? Such possible middle ground is never revealed by Life; it is too shocking to the design of ordinary brain chemistry of men; it is not necessary for the ordinary intellect.

All creation myths entail the extraordinary suffering of the hero, suffering beyond ordinary suffering. The good news of a modern creation myth: heroic suffering would be a pleasurable, self imposed internal discomfort, private. A Real Revolutionist cannot “be comforted” and if he could he wouldn’t allow it!

Question: Why do men remain entangled in questions regarding the “nature of reality?”
Answer 7: Because, dear minstrel, there is a contrariness between reality and the nature of reality.

When it comes to the navigational operations of the brain everyone
needs an artificial horizon.

For those interested in such matters, (and if you are, you’re normally
driven to ponder them in all the
wrong places), take note – loneliness

Over in one of man’s near by, in-law galaxy, a place where space seems to drift, one father had to continually console his children thusly
“I assure you, my putting of chocolate
on your pills will in no way spoil
the taste of the medicine.”
…and Kyroot said:
Think on this for a moment: What is one thing you can do that makes
you always, and unconditionally
happy?…Now reflect on this:
How often do you do
this one thing?…Now let’s all join hands with your self, and sing
a rousing chorus of, “What Kind Of Fool Am I?”

One real feisty little fellow told me that he just about had the “whole shooting match figured out” if someone would just
help him with one final detail; he wants to know this, “If
‘bourbon and coke’ is the
answer, what is the question?
…and Kyroot said:
At another “thinker’s confab” over near the wet sector, one gentleman commanded the floor to deliver the ultimate wrap-up of his philosophy, and he did so by saying that, “everyone knows the answer, they’re just
afraid to tell
their mother.”

A chap who resides over in a near by 3-D universe, seems to have put
his neural grip on at least
one reoccurring limitation of
such spatial worlds; He sez that the Four Basic Food Groups are, fattening, more fattening, most fattening, and look-out,

Real Revolutionist activity is not “results oriented,” but IS results, without the weight of notation.

Before they fully see what’s going on, all gods believe they’re the messiahs.

Over in a near distant system wherein they already enjoy hyper neural interstate highways, they have a hot quiz game they play, a sample of which is thusly: A man named Willie
Walker runs every
where he goes, and
a man named Ronnie
Runner also runs
every where he goes;
Question – What’d’ya

All dimensions are ultimately doomed;
defeat awaits all that is measured.

In some quarters ’tis said that “A hero is one who has given himself
over to something bigger than
himself,” but in the “out there,”
EVERYthing’s bigger
than oneself –

One well-crafted father told his fine-tuned son, “If your own intellect is not your own cruise director, you’re in for a long voyage.”

When all of the gods are dead only the rebels will remain.
…and Kyroot said:
Another one of “those kinda questions”, (you know the sort, the kinds they don’t wanna use on the quiz shows, the types you don’t want bothering your own mind, you know the kind, well anyway,, here’s the query): If you don’t

IS there
a difference?

When the myths need second mortgages, those in rental properties had better brace themselves.

The Real Revolutionists are those very, very few who have ever actually
