Notes by TK

Kyroot to :07. All bureaucracies are set for perfect efficiency; all disputes and frustrations are perfectly structured. All inexplicable, opaque explanations are exactly right. All explanations are sarcastic criticisms of life, from a Real Revolutionist view, since they never explain anything. But that’s what they are supposed to be/do; critique is part of the fueling process of City life. Working for Life is the ultimate futile, useless, trite, supremely necessary endeavor. It is impossible to avoid toiling for Life. Men would not search for “the way” unless made to believe they have somehow lost it or otherwise gotten off it: this is supreme efficiency.

“Man is born free, but is everywhere in chains.” When the dance of This Thing is right, a kind of freedom is possible: freedom from the need to “cope” with the frustrations of life; freedom from the need to explain yourself, of needing to make excuses for your inability to change; freedom from the concern for class/rank in life – for your place in line for the Secondary Level abattoir; freedom to think whatever, whenever and as much as you want.

For a big Revolutionist that which is possible soon becomes necessary.
…and Kyroot said:
You should be pleased that you don’t,
or someday might, live in this one world you’ve never heard about; According to some reliable reports the way to pass for wise over there, is to be able to convincingly act as though what you know now you’ve always known.
…and Kyroot said:
Although now forgotten, the original, real hero of the homo sapiens was he with the verve,nerve and intelligence who ventured out and drew the first circle.
…and Kyroot said:
Our subversive, intellectual Revolution is not something that’s “done to
Life”, but is something Life’s considering doing
to Itself.
…and Kyroot said:
In defense of his quarrelsome attitude, one fellow offered the following,
“I would not be nearly so sarcastic were I not alive.”
…and Kyroot said:
In a transcendental fashion unnecessary to presently pursue, it can be
said that;
What’s eruptable,
Is corruptible.
…(0h, all right, we could post script that only the coroner presides over an all honest choir)
…and Kyroot said:
Remember this; Gulliver didn’t actually GO any where.
…and Bunyon’s blisters were not
from an extended walk.
…and Kyroot said:
Words To Live And Fight By; If they’re holding their noses,
Don’t attack.
…and Kyroot said:
At one time a group of guys decided to become an official “group of guys” to periodically meet for the purpose of “Praising Famous Men”, until they discovered that most of the Famous Men they wanted to praise wouldn’t come to their meetings, and of the few who did, most of them didn’t want to chip in for
the beer.
…and Kyroot said:
At one time, on one world, one army had as its motto; “Kill or be killed.”…
…pardon me, but I do tend to get a bit over-come when face to face with such unexpected intelligence…
…and Kyroot said:
One day the ole man called all the kids around him and said, “Jeeze, all you little nippers have proved to be a real pain in the ole neural-kazoozer.”, and they all laughed, and clapped their hands , and jumped about squeal inq, and shouted, “We know, we know; That’s why we’re us, and you’re you.”, and the oldster bit on his lip for a bit, and said, “Hell, I could’ave
figured that out
for myself.”..(then
he squealed, and
leaped about a
little while.)
…and Kyroot said:
Race Update:
Hormones are still ahead.
…and Kyroot said:
The first thing, every morning that some conservatively constructed men
do is ask themselves, “Is this ‘every morning’?, and is this the ‘first thing’ I’m doing?”
…(after this, all seems to roll right along
for them.)
…and Kyroot said:
To help lessen,
Plebeian entanglements,
You might care to note that,
“Stop gap measures”,
Are the only ones available.
…and Kyroot said:
Over in one neural universe, on a certain skull planet, the kid and the ole man were sitting around the bare spot in the backyard when an uncle suddenly stood and declared, “No man has truly arrived until he’s written his autobiography.”, and after a period of polite silence, the lad asked, “Dad, exactly what destination does he have in mind?”, and the progenitor replied, “You should grant great leeway, latitude, and indifference to signals from side-track ancestors.” and the uncle said, “0.k., have it
your way, but I’ll be back’.’
..and Kyroot said:
You should realize by naw that what might be operationally correct on an
obscure hill-side site may be irrational and fallacious
down in the City, for instance, up in the Revolutionist Camp the following is said;
“The greatest: book ever written doesn’t make any difference.”
…and Kyroot said:
“Hooray, and congratulations, you’ve passed the test:”
“Hey, don’t bull-shove me, I know they change the test everyday.” “Hip hip hooray again, you’ve just passed another one.”
…and Kyroot said:
There was this one guy, (o.k., there wasn’t really, but without this
facade the first part of the sentence is missing, so, o.k.), there was this guy who was always bad-mouthing intellectual and scientific activities, and particularly, mathematics, until one day he ran up against the Large Super Prime Number who told him, “You better watch, little
half-squirt cause I can
prove statistically that
you don’t even exist.”,
and for gosh sake, the
feller was so shocked by
this perturbing possibility
that he hence forth kept
his numerical opinions to
his little self.
…and Kyroot said:
Words cause guilt.
…and Kyroot said:
This one god told his main franchisee, “Hey, ease up, its just a job.
…and Kyroot said:
One observer said, “This kinda stuff is like shorthand for long handed
stuff that didn’t make sense
to start with.”
…and Kyroot said:
Every day; at high noon, whenever he and his henchmen were in a typical
western town, this one guy would “call himself out” for
a show down.
