Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. More odds and ends left off the agenda in past months. This Thing is a kind of intellectual poetry, an unspecific new mythology (not theology), making no claim to exclusivity.  Seeing beyond local complexities to universals: the “drug problem”.  All systems of belief are “local grazing patterns”.  The division between SL/secondary level and PL/primary level  affairs is not its essential significance, rather it is the consumption of one by the other, the encroachment by the SL on the PL is what is agitating to the ordinary intellect. SL is always a “selling of something” to somebody.

Connection to what difference is there between “professions” vs. “business”? PL needs no advertising; only the SL advertises, yet such advertising is disdained by the majority of men. Thus professions, via their advertising are consuming the PL ever more obviously.
