Kyroot to :05. Expansion of Life’s creation thru man of the thing-specific from the universal processional flow.There is a cyclical rejuvenation or resurrection of the thing-specific back into process …and then back into thing-specificity again. It happens like an on/off switch converting from one to the other every few seconds, minutes, or hours. Three examples: memory, criticism and verbal reality. Memory creates the thing-specific (it can only remember specifics, not processes), but the recalling itself is process generating more thing-specifics, i.e, the “bad marriage” re-lived in mind for a few moments then put back to rest again.

Criticism of all forms creates the thing-specific by referring to an artist or his ‘work’ as a thing, but the critical process is just that: an energy exchange process generating further thing-specifics. Note the connection of these two to man’s cyclical attempts at change: desire to change (thing-specific): failure (success) to change; new desire to change: new failure (success) to change, etc.

Verbal reality: words can convert failure to success. Example of mediocre recording artist unable to land a record contract for ten years; when he finally does get one, the advertising emphasizes his first recording in over ten years!!” This is not cleverness on the part of the record company… it is Life’s doing.

The reverse (converting success to failure): “the computer” (thing-specific) is a solution to the increasing problem of inefficiency in mechanical memory and calculation processes in business, but it raises new problems to be cured (educating employees to properly use the computers). The truly cured disappears (E.g., problem of polio, which is routinely dealt with). It always boils down, in ongoing processes, to attempting to “cure the cure”.

Many things painted yellow, didn’t start out that way.

A man who was quite fastidious regarding his speech, had his own dictionary.
(He notes that he is suspicious of at least half of its definitions.)

…and Kyroot said:
The last explanation is always the best…no…
The first explanation is always the best…no…no…no no no,
The last explanation always SOUNDS the best.

…and Kyroot said:
It is as difficult to be famous without whining, as it is to be powerful
without arrogance.

..and Kyroot said:
There’s this place where you can stand that’s real close to Life’s backyard.

…and Kyroot said:
The king took the visiting prince out on the balcony overlooking the village and said, “Behold, the man who continually speaks wiser than he really knows'” and the guest asked, “And who might that be, my liege?”
“The people, my boy, all of the people.”

…and Kyroot said:
‘Tis safer to misspeak in the library than the boudoir. (“Beg pardon my dear, did I step on your lips?” )

…and Kyroot said:
Humor makes some laugh, a few, think.

…and Kyroot said:
“From time to time, men may err.”
“Who told you that?”
“That man over there.”

…and Kyroot said:
A man who leaves no foot prints, either has no feet,
or has no audience with eyes tuned to his foot frequency.

…and Kyroot said:
One guy over in that slick City apprised me of his personal philosophy thusly:
“The truth, the truth, my friend, conspires to deceive us all.”
…(What a cheerful thought…kinda.)

One mother’s advice to her hairy son, “It’s never too late to say you’re
sorry unless it’s already yesterday.”

…and Kyroot said:
Those who’ll tell you all they know, are simply groping.

…and Kyroot said:
Once upon a time, (and particularly, I might add, in a space), this one dimension thought, “Who needs all those other directional forces, I’ll just go it alone, and become my own single, superstar.” And while he apparently had the nerve, and could talk a good game, his stupidity was such that he could not foresee his immediate collapse as soon as he attempted that first step alone.

…and Kyroot said:
If everyone who tried to be cute WAS cute, then…well..I just don’t wanna think about it.

…and Kyroot said:
In spite of what you and your kind may think, the cry of, “Take no prisoners,” could have originated with prisoners.

…and Kyroot said:
Whining is an admission.

And Kyroot cut out this little news item that didn’t make the front page, concerning the fourth place winner in this year’s, “San Rio’s Song Festival.” It is a tune written by a pottery maker from El Ceindo, and whose title is:
“Twas scatological humor,
that started up the rumor,
that humans’ most important parts
are wrinkled by design.”

…and Kyroot said:
Morality is what they call the last act in a three act play, (as always, if you know the “secret address,” you can write and they won’t send you a program.)

…and Kyroot said:
If you know just how to look at it from the right vantage point,
EVERYTHING in the Secondary world is funny.

…and Kyroot said:
Silence can be an impenetrable shield in certain City areas.

I wanted to tell you about my favorite little person of the year–a
guy I met not far from here who said the only thing any longer “bothering” him at all was the question of, “Who do I thank?”
