Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. There is a way of defeating the continually Life-asked question of “hey, what time is it?” which induces guilt and fear of arrears.

You cannot be taken seriously without talk. E.g., the criminal who refuses to talk about his crime or himself: the news story soon disappears from public view. Such a criminal would not be considered capable of any change. Willful silence is a kind of impenetrable shield. Silence is the ultimate explanation.

Consider “POB” (power of brevity). Consider the example of evolution of religious truth in words: honor the true god (four words); love thy neighbor (three words); Jesus saves (two words); would a one-word truth be the ultimate? How about a no-word explanation? No words is the ultimate info. Life’s ultimate power demonstration: its revolutionary silence. What man hears from Life is always thru intermediaries…lesser gods.

An historical creation sequence: after the initial silence came a flood of words. The “balkanization” of man renders him supremely ineffective to challenge Life’s agenda.

Although he certainly can be physically injured and killed, the Revolutionist’s inner aspects cannot be damaged, or insulted in that the simple cannot harm the complex.

Short Commentary on the Bountiful Nature of Dualistic Reality: The two
most important musical forms yet produced by man are, Classical, Jazz, Soft and Hard Rock, Easy Listening, and Country.

Emotions don’t make mistakes, People do.

…and Kyroot said:
Under local conditions,
There never seems to be any “let up.”

…and Kyroot said:
Although it seems pretty obvious by now, I guess even the obvious deserves
its own subversive bulletin board. so let’s post this:
“The nature of life,
is the nature of man, and the structure of Life
is the frame of human consciousness.”

…and Kyroot said:
The critic can never see the entirety of his subject.

The newest toy over in the Green Parallel Galaxy is “Rubber Reality.”

Position’s not every thing, but juxta-position is.

and Kyroot said:
One well known ole sorehead (he’s not all that well known, but who’s keeping score? (“Yoo Hoo, I am”– never mind all these impertinents, back to the bloody story): This ole ruffled-one says, “If you ain’t gonna feel guilty, why bother to get up?”

…and Kyroot said:
O.k.”, said the voice, “Let me see if I can make my point this way; let me ask you, would you use a cheap gauge to check the pressure in expensive tires?”
…(Point made, piece captured, square taken, case closed.)

…and Kyroot said:
If it’s not paradoxical It’s not even doxical.

…and Kyroot said:
Anything thought of by man,
If not immediately useful for you,
Will be later, and
Is already for someone else.

…and Kyroot said:
A shout, from out the crowd came, “O.k., alright..o.k…then tell me this;
if women are not to blame for all this then just by god, who is?”

…and Kyroot said:
All of man’s ideas, activities, and institutions are organic, sentient, and electric.

…and Kyroot said:
What ordinary men call irony
Is actually mislabeled resistance.

and Kyroot said:
Over in that little near world, (of which I’m already suspicious),
above the bar in a certain saloon, hangs this sign:
“If We Can’t Joyfully
Feed Stuff To Our Brains
To Make Us Once Again,
Raging Beasts,
What’s The Use Of Even,
Living In The City?”

…Very suspicious indeed. (By the by: You ever notice by now how some things are so true, they seem silly, and some things are so silly they seem true?

Never forget “The Great Light Bulb Wars.”

…and Kyroot said:
One viewer wrote to tell me that not only is this his favorite, non commercial program, but also to tell me that in his opinion no society can truly call itself civilized until the Fire Chief is an elected position.

…and Kyroot said:
Not all problems will go away if you simply ignore them – BUT, all the good ones will.

…and Kyroot said:
In the subversive, revolutionary life up on the hill-side, peace is just a flawed synonym for “perpetual uneasiness.”

Gluttonous graffiti on one planet’s wall: First Life handed man religion
to condemn him, then psychology to excuse him – Mein Got, what next?”

…and Kyroot said:
The only difference between an opponent, and a proponent,
Is in the spelling of their names.

…and Kyroot said:
Oh yeah,
And another viewer wrote in to complain.
