Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. Groups in the City stand on the “structure of institutions”, nobody stands alone. The perspective from one’s standing on institution always yields a range of relative distinctions of superiority/inferiority, but it is always group-based, not individually based. Nothing can stand alone; Life doesn’t function that way. There is always a feeling of being part of something. Occasionally Life allows people to get an “askew” view, a fresh view of old landscapes.

A group without some faction/conflict extant (i.e., fanatic cults) is virtually powerless; yet note how they are feared in life. The strength of alloy vs. weakness of a pure substance. A Real Revolutionist Group however, would have no factionalism; thus it is powerless to effect City life. Internal opposition doesn’t exist in a Real Revolutionist because his sight/view holds nothing to be compared to. All Secondary Level activity grows thru factionalism. Primary Level activity has no such internal opposition. Only the Primary Level can be strong alone, everything else only has the strength of numbers and factions.

The only thing local eyes can see is a “malfunction” (the flawed, broken or incomplete); it is a law of physics.

The “cap” of City intelligence: inability to consider that your group’s ideas may be totally wrong, so that it can then discover this and thereby progress from it. I.e., that all one’s ideas are purposefully wrong as an adversity with which to struggle and triumph.

After being informed that once the twelve notes in an octave are played,

I suppose as further evidence, (if indeed further be required), of the continuing lack of synchronization between the perverse postures of fate and man’s feeble acts, a certain gentleman told me that even after all of the expense of changing his name to Shakespeare, and after all of the effort of moving to Stratford, that the British literary establishment still wouldn’t lend him fifteen hundred pounds.

Some who love their sleep say that the first rays of sunrise are the worst, and a Revolutionist once told some interested visitors the same thing except he didn’t mention beds, or daybreak.

…and Kyroot said:
(Ah, the steady march forward of winsome talk and Wild Turkey): Over
in a small bar in the next time zone a fellow climbed onto the bar and
delivered the following verbal bouquet;
“I used to speak in riddles,
But now I speak in rhymes,
I used to live on quarters,
But now I feast on dimes;
I have never met a thought so
formidable that it could not be
chopped, nor a word so pithy that
it couldn’t be dropped.”…
…(need I tell you that his
next round was on me.)

Up toward the front was one man proclaiming, “We’re all on a fast trip
to destruction,” while back near the rear another figure was announcing,
“We’re on a slow cruise to paradise.” And wandering up and down the aisles was
a chap selling broken calendars, and outdated watches.

One way in which the Revolution assures its perpetuation is in that
ordinary folk don’t even know it’s going on.

Advice from one guy that seems to have plenty (I just pass ’em along, no comment, and no

“Forget all about notions like ‘cosmic doubles, guardian angels, or imaginary playmates,’ latch onto something really important, you dig, like this –
there’s a ‘hit man’ on everybody’s tail.”

In the attempt not only to give him some good, hard, healthy and practical directions, but some that carried  deep metaphorical ones as well, a father told his son, “Those who serve the wine never themselves indulge.” And the kid replied, “Are you nuts, every bartender I ever met drinks like a horse,” and with pathetic shock and disbelief the old timer screamed, “Are you serious?”
