Notes by TK

Kyroot to :08. All attempts to help are lesser dimensional demonstrations of Life’s outgrowing of its present limits. All human actions are based upon the tacit acceptance of sequential energy flow: “cause and effect”. A more complex view: effects are always local, personal, while causes are universal. No local cause is competent. An ordinary man claiming ignorance of a cause is just not wired up to care about what the cause is. Everybody knows what the local causes are of any given effects. Man is always in medias res; if his nervous system should ever comprehend that nothing causes anything, it would be paralyzed.

The secret of ritual = the secret itself and there is never a protest against this. Everything desired/coveted is/has a “secret” reality assumed to guarantee satisfaction. The winning of the desired is the “initiation” into the secret and beyond that there is nothing. Yet it is sufficient and no one notices the immediate dissatisfaction coming with possession. The nervous system just doesn’t get angry or upset by being constantly bamboozled by Life. The NS hasn’t the energy to do anything more than it has to. It even resists thinking as much as it has to.

There are two realities, the verbal, and the other one…and the
atmosphere and light is such
on some planets that they
appear to be twins…
…you can of course, tell
the difference by asking
them…that’s it – SPEAK RIGHT UP.

If you really insist on stopping at every”bad accident”, and getting down on your knees, and getting up real close you’re gonna always see you in the back seat.

One guy said he liked to go back and “cover his tracks”, and his brother asked “Why”, and he said, “I don’t know.”, which is a prime example of that operation in action.
…and Kyroot said:
To help place the proper ritualistic emphasis on the occasion, this one chap invited all of his old friends to watch him burn all of his old love letters except he didn’t have any old friends, or
love letters…

If we’re past Tuesday, and/or, you missed your stop, just ask yourself;
What good is a disguise

Every truth has its parallel, and every parallel has its right angle,
and every right angle has a one-eyed card of validity up its own sleeve.
Now, dammit –

On this one world they erected a gigantic sign, visible for millions of
miles, that reads;
“Words Are Not Adequate”…on a sister planet in the same system they’ve set up their own celestial billboard which says; “Words Are Totally

Whatever would happen, this one little kid would always say,
“Life put me up to it.”; He said this so many times that his father suddenly believed him.
…and Kyroot said:
Over at this one place I some times visit, at a very official looking
function, a very official seeming fellow stood, and in a very “you-know-what” sounding voice proposed,
“Let us re-write our language so as to
better reflect our continuing state of

beaten roundly, officially
speaking, that is.)

In spite of what I’ve said, and of what you thought I said, (and any workable combination thereof), don’t forget, there IS such a thing as the
“Impossibility Factor”…
don’t forget that

remember it either.)

A better view,
Would be for you,
As an entry point postulate take it to be that;
Effects are local,
Causes, universal.

While staying at someone else’s house at another locale, Z found this
note in their mailbox;
“There is some hope for a man who cannot read his own handwriting; What exactly that hope is has yet to be defined.”

If you can get “free of the moment” you can find bargains everywhere.

Never underestimate the opposite of what you’re estimating.
…(You might care to note that on some planets they tend to forget to estimate the opposite at all….
…I’m telling you, there’s
some weird places in this
universe;[by weird I mean like flies living in the stomachs of elephants].)

In the neural classroom is it the student who will reform the teacher,
or shall it be the other end of the stick?

In the ready arts men have comedy to show the folly of life, and
tragedy to show the
uncertainty, but there must be a subversive, third possibility… …what might it be?,

One of the newer members I met at the last Ole Sorehead’s Conclave told a group of us standing around in the hall the preceding – I mean of course, the following, “I hear tell of some people
saying they want to
‘feel better about themselves’, and others saying they just ‘want to feel better’, and I say if they can tell the difference , they never will’

Is change most enchantingly executed when it is done through
movement in time, or

I would not be all that surprised to find that by now some of you doubt
the whole validity of my
travel tales, but here is
one more that I assure you
is as right as the fins on
a Cadillac; There’s a small planet not too far from where you stand whose creatures, best and brightest, say that,
believed til
it’s said”.

I leave you with this; One of my relatives once described this kinda stuff as “trying to make alligators out of hand bags.”
