Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. Garage sale of odds and ends not previously covered. A TWE/to what end, game: nouns and verbs vs. goods and services vs. adjectives and adverbs vs. TOA/thinking of action and action.  Conditionals: condition; comparative modifier; superlative—e.g., red, redder, reddest.  The Pica: an animal which makes its home in rock slides: consider the negative connotation of “rock slide” to men, but to the animal it is absolutely positive. 

For pioneers in pioneering conditions, the only use for the intellect they have is for settling disputes of no great consequence, necessity or value. Seekers who turn to the intellect in their quest are similarly dealing with something that can only settle matters of little import.  The “impotent climax” or hollow joy of certain SL/secondary level activity fulfillment. SL activity pursued to alleviate other SL or PL/primary level conditions cannot give pleasure. 

Only SL affairs come with a manual”—directions for use.  Local reality, universal reality and “the center”. The center is the local intelligence seeking the universal—not dissimilar to This Thing. The local and universal are mutually exclusive; only the center can pursue the universal. Any really clever king would be tempted to install a somewhat non-obvious “buffoon” on the throne (while still under his control) who does not intimidate the people.

Consider the Real Revolutionist’s advantage in installing such a ruler in his internal gov’t; the ordinary would never install a silly ruler, they are too serious about everything.  Consider: there are only two ways to be entertained: by yourself or by another. Note how everything is so conveniently divisible into two.  The “threat to quit caring” is the attempt to make the local into the universal; to whom is such a threat directed: to the perpetrators of offense, bystanders or to oneself?

Remember it is always Life speaking to Life. “You are my buddy even if you don’t want to be”; no choice. But how terrible is it really to be in a position of no choice? Especially if it’s a benign situation? “Hey, you’re happy even if you don’t want to be” (from Life).
