Kyroot to :07. What talk creates, talk can destroy. Everything beyond SL/secondary level affairs is created, supported by talk. SL is usurping, consuming PL/primary level purview. Individual personality is nonexistent without talk. In a sense man creates himself thru his talk. Connect this with what talk creates it can destroy: talk can ‘cure’ certain mortal problems (i.e., SL problems), therefore to the Real Revolutionist such cure is automatically suspect, a mere undoing of what talk originally created.

However, while Life allows men to believe talk adequately cures some problems, it does not want men in general to understand that talk will destroy all mortal problems, To wit, all those areas men believe is NOT aided by talk. E.g., men’s desire to change themselves, exists concurrently with feelings that such can’t be done. PL affairs have a full and immediate payoff; SL ones can have a sizable time-lag in their payoff. SL affairs are always open to revision.

After hearing of the new, specializations of people becoming,not attorneys, but “legal assistants”, and not doctors, but “medical aids”, this one chap decided that the new height of his ambitions would be to become a “para–person”

After hearing his little charge whine on about how all the great discoveries and inventions had already been done and used up, this one father offered his encouragement by saying,
“But just think of all the grand things that have yet to be attempted verbally!”

I once met this guy who would take things he had to do, and do them at times other than when they actually had to be done, and on the other hand, (as you might suspect), he would take things he didn’t actually “have to do”, and
not do them.

So’s not to waste any time, one push-ahead-father told his newly born

This guy told his cousin who had just arrived from another planet,
“Whenever they’re yackin’ at you, and you’re stuck for a reply just tell ’em – ‘See my agent, see my agent’.”, and the emigre sez that he don’t have an agent, and the guy replies, “That’s what
you think.”

While out of touch at yet another of those„those, conventions, (don’t
any of you wonder how I get invited to so many of these conclaves?, well I ’11 tell you – I don’t), any how in one of the side rooms some of us were treated to a presentation of the Muncie Theorum which states that,
“If one theorem will do, Life will give you two.”,
…(Professor Muncie says he has a second one also, but that he prefers to save it for next year.)

While on some worlds poets are want to muse about “the heavens weeping for the suffering of the living creatures”, if a more complex truth be known, and the cosmos
so anthropomorphized, they would
more likely be enthralled by the discovery of today’s local conflict and-destruction-being verbal disguises for the joy and vigor of the universal tomorrow.

Over in this one area there are two brothers both in the psychiatric
trade, and with a certain
similarity in approach; When a patient appears to be running out of interest, money, or
patience the first doctor brother will counsel, “My dear, Sir, or Madame, my advice to you is that you should ‘clean up your acts.”, and under the same circumstances the other brother is inclined to conclude, “And so, Mr., or Mrs. Patient, my suggestion is that you go and ‘clean up your room’.”…(neither
of these two practitioners are particularly well known – much less liked, outside of my own

A short scene from the larger drama of,
“Reason and Logic Are Alive and Well,
Their Verbal Worth I Cannot Tell”, as we join the action a first actor speaks, “You cannot have a vacation until you have a job.”, and a second player responds, “But if you did not have a job you would not need a vacation.”, and now we see the first actor think on this for a moment, then for an hour, then for a day, until he finally returns to the stage and says to his companion, “I now have a response to your last comment, it does however, require that I first kill you.”
