Notes by TK

Kyroot. to :06. Nothing can exist without its opposite. There could not be any competition without agreement; no conflict without collusion – i.e., agreement to disagree. Opposition provides the basis for all operations; conflict establishes the basis for all growth. The ‘gods’ dream plans to and thru humanity in three distinct versions of the same dream, one for each dimension, each force.

Thus each dimension/force takes its plans absolutely to heart and judges each other dimension/force’s plans as faulty and worthy of destruction. This is the maximally efficient way for Life’s dreams to be executed thru man. E.g., of Mafia families struggling to control the numbers racket, or GM, Ford and Chrysler competing for the economic domination of the car market. Optimally efficient for Life’s own aim to develop the best possible car.

Note that all human nervous systems are designed to desire eradication of all competition as the optimal condition for real progress. Corollary: everybody longs for the end of internal conflict. Note that all myths state that man was made or fell to suffering as his lot; this is Life giving out the info that conflict is necessary. Consider: what great suffering it is to man to be possessed of eternally Life-thwarted plans to do the Life-implanted “right thing”. The Real Revolutionist must ignore this kind of suffering; This Thing is in charge of creating even “brasher gods” than those of religions.

Don’t personalize your life/myth; specifically don’t use your “I-life” existence as an example of anything. A method: replace “I think/act so-and-so” with “I know/knew a guy who did/would do so-and-so.” If threat is your intent, use “I know a guy who would do so-and-so if you were to do that”.

A slightly different mode: “I wasn’t hungry” (behavioral) for “I didn’t eat” (motivational, personalized). Another example: “I didn’t go to that concert” (behavioral) for’ “I hate that kind of music” (motive/personalized). There is an entirely different energy spectrum involved, going completely beyond the difference in the words. The Real Revolutionist cannot live out his own heroic myth/adventure if he personalizes it.


For NP : Epilogue: Another related method: simultaneously with everything you think and say, ask yourself, not from any judgmental basis, any premise or conclusion, “how am I going to explain this?” (note: not explanation to anyone) and don’t personalize myth of you.

you time to get a
head start on it.”

In the attempt to make some point or the other, a father told his son,
“Even electricians can’t tell you why you see sparks when you pull the plug out of a wall socket real quick.”, he told the little nipper this even though it wasn’t so, and when the lad grew up he would make this statement to every electrician he met until the day came that no electrician could tell you why you see sparks when you pull the plug out of a socket real quick.

A certain would-be revolutionist read, “Transcendental awareness comes either through trials endured, or by illumination.”, and in regards to his own leader he thought, “Hey, I’m all fixed up; what you’ve told me has indeed been illuminating, and just being around you has certainly been
a trial.”
