Kyroot to :07. This Thing = “you don’t have to cope” (vs. “how to cope”). Do questioners (of say, the President) really desire to know what his actions would be or merely what his comments are re: any given situation? These possible responses are two entirely different and distinct things. Does Life want to know what actions you (and it) might take or just what thoughts of action are being generated? In the internal “forced dialogue” are elicited responses about actions or thoughts of actions?

Does Life care? Do you really care? Aren’t both equally necessary? Depending on circumstances animals must “do” (especially eat), men must think/talk. Primary Level = silent actions; Secondary Level = TOA/thinking of action. Which requires the most attention, action or TOA, i.e., Primary Level or SL? Primary Level affairs are essential but not serious (as Secondary Level affairs are serious). Secondary Level affairs simply do not need to be coped with (by the Real Revolutionist); there is nothing to cope with.

Whatever hobby you are serious about is equivalent to being locked into “crisis control”, containment – “dollar short and a day late”. It is the attempt to contain Life’s constantly-threatening-to-overflow energy rivers. History = overflows, ruptures of man’s levy. The Real Revolutionist who thinks more than he has to sets his own intellectual pace—steps away from the enforced Life-institutions crisis control pace.

At the gate to this one particular “After-Life”, stood a guard who
announced the following,
“Admission is gained only by correctly responding to a
verbal test; to make it easier on you dorks, it’s multiple choice; so listen up, here’s the question, and your three
possible answers; ‘Which is the more important?, a list of the “5 Most Important Ideas Of The Last 10 Years.”, or, the
“10 Most Important Ideas Of The Last 5?!'”, and the three choices are, (A) Both,

This one debate regarding language went as follows; the first speaker
said, “Words are signposts to the truth.”, the next one declared, “Words are to mitigate suffering” and the third debater declaimed, “Words are to qualify experience” and as the audience was leaving I overheard one fellow mutter, “No matter what else may have been accomplished, I wonder if any of them realize that words ARE an experience?”

Eh whaty?, eh whaty?”

On this one other planet, last year during their annual “Public Cerebral Confessional Day”, (known in some parts as “Admittin’ Time”), one participant spake as fallows; “I cannot deny,
Tis with the worst of friends, In the worst of inns,
My days have thusly passed,
And always with my brain-flag,
Waving at half mast.”, and the crowd responded with a solid round of, “Boo”,”Hiss” and, “Boo some more”, to which he replied, “Hall! It was
persons like you that made
me resort to poetry in the
first place.”

whilst sitting and sipping in this little hip bistro over in the
Goatee Galaxy I overheard this snippet from an
adjoining table; this one guy says, “The reason ordinary people don’t like jazz is that they don’t know what’s coming next.”, and his buddy rubs his nose, looks at the window, and says, “You know Clyde,’ just suddenly realized something about being alive.”

One ole hairy grandfatherly called all of his little grandnippers to
gather round him, and spoke to them thusly, “By the time most people think of something for

‘Too late’.”

instantaneously made the quantum leap into post ancestral cannibalism and had the ole man for last night’s dessert…for
which he was much less than noticeably grateful.)

On this one young, developing world, as things began to separate into
conflicting factions, such as the
categories of”religion and science’:
“faith and fact”, and the like, one group declared that they should all resist this inclination, and after a bit they did realize some success in their efforts, but also began to lose the ability to talk.
