Kyroot to :07. In the Bushes there is a possible abridgment of the City rule of nobody being separate from their thoughts. Thoughts can have a life of their own, without need of a thinker in the Bushes. Consider the connection: what might be the effect on City thinking if a mathematical formula was discovered that answered all questions men have?

Any viable institution, idea etc. has factions, dimensions…a landscape of dimensional struggle without which it would lack the internal tensile strength to function. This also can be abridged in the Bushes: no internal conflict to ideas, i.e., no 3-d conflict.

All Secondary Level activities need an audience. An audience = faction. The entertainer needs to “win” over, to convert the audience. It is a competition with episodic victory/defeat, never a permanent healing or merging of factions, which is what is always sought.

I’ll show you mine.”,
and that other part
replied, “Hell, you
say that just because
you ain’t got one to show.”
…and Kyroot said:
After lo, these thousands of years that men have been repeating,
rephrasing, and reshaping the notion that,
“Never was, nor is, nor ever be A faultless work a man can see after all this time has it

Culture is bricks.
…and Kyroot said:
Over in another little cosmic bar, one of the full throated regulars, several times a night, would hoist high his glass, and toast all assembled by proclaiming,
“To the wine,
Which righteously loosens the tongue.”, and one night,one guy in the corner finally thought, “From what?”
…and Kyroot said:
Information doesn’t exist,
Apart from a retrieval instrument.

Even after you suspect”what comes next”- THEN what comes next?
…and Kyroot said:
This speech writer asked me how come the same line spoken by the king
sounds better than it does delivered by a duke?… —”How come?”, he asks,
“How come?”…(Do you
have an answer
for him?)
…and Kyroot said:
Something that’s correct by comparison is not yet correct.
…and Kyroot said:
The first son declared, “What we know is all we’ll ever know.”, and the second one replied, “Nay, may I disagree, and say that we do not yet even know all that we do know.”, and they both turned to number three son for a deciding judgment but he was already scratching his little chin, and rolling his eyes about, and said, “Ahhh, I
don’t know, we aughta ask the old man.”, and second son said,”Save your sweat, it’s a waste of time; If the old man knew we wouldn’t he sitting here
..and Kyroot said:
The Revolutionist should die at night.
…and Kyroot said:
No information is particularly useful unless it has an escape clause.
(…and Kyroot said he will add this
0.k., you can also try it this way; Not even “the truth” is beneficial unless it has
a way out.)
…and Kyroot said:
The infantile eye says, “Fate ruled my parents, chance,me.
…and Kyroot said:
Those who still claim to be seriously worried over “man’s attempt to
play god” sure don’t
have much to worry about.
…and Kyroot said:
The mythology of this one group, (no longer as extant as they once were), tells that even though Life’s primary business is change, that the constant disruptions inherent, in such pursuits were resulting in inordinate stress, migraines, and the threat of ulcers…but Life
found a way out, it made man
and turned the job over to him.
…and Kyroot said:
In the ordinary conditions of the City, Don’t pity the poor,
For if you think you’re not one of them, You’re both poor and stupid.
…and Kyroot said:
The older planet told his satellite son, “Whenever you wonder whether a beckoning activity is truly essential or not for you personally, the way to always tell is that only the non-essential comes with
…and Kyroot said:
Only a Real Revolutionist can listen to almost anything without losing his temper; There are some things a Revolutionist will not listen to.
…and Kyroot said:
One low-level sore-head muttered as follows, “I’ve looked at life, and I’ve looked at the alternatives, and say this – I’d like to
look around some more.”
…and Kyroot said:
Then he told me that he already had the title for his new book, (it would actually be his first one, but he wanted me to call it his”hext book’) and it is,
“The Expansive Power And Limiting
Factors Of Talk.”
…and Kyroot said:
A Real Revolutionist is whatever he says he is…
…(the beauty of it is that if he says what he is he’s no longer a Revolutionist.)
…and Kyroot said:
As he. was leaving, he slapped one of the other gods on the back and
said, “As long as seriousness passes for intelligence we’ve got a job.”
