Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. All processes must be made thing-specific. The processes of fear, failure, illness, death are turned into thing-specifics by religion, namely as “demons” (with characteristics), i.e., demons of fear, sickness etc. Processes cannot be perceived, only participated in. They must be converted to thing-specifics to be perceived, thereby becoming the commerce of the ordinary mind. Processes demand effort, thing-specifics only acceptance.

The Primary Level world is one of process; the Secondary Level world is one of thing-specifics. All worthy efforts/processes of the Primary Level World are seen as paying off in Secondary Level World thing-specifics rather than in processes. For example, the “Christian life” is paid off with “immortality,” a thing-specific. It is never seen that process itself can be its own payoff. To the Real Revolutionist, worthy processes are their own payoff, not a thing-specific.

Somewhere between the beginning and the end, the essence of the middle was re-routed.

Finding himself alone in the rest room of his favorite tavern, this one
fellow said to his reflection, “As you should know by now,
I ain’t much for associating with bums – present company excepted.”

…and Kyroot said:
The chemical, physical, electrical, and mathematical nature of three dimensional structures remain such that in the City all attempts to help will eventually themselves become a problem.

…and Kyroot said:
All actions not only produce re-actions, but all actions ARE re-actions, (and vice versa).

One kid, way over there, way off so far that you don’t have to worry about it, said, “Ole-man, I sometimes fear I can’t live up to your expectations.” And the father replied, “Hell, why sweat it, I can’t live up to them either.”

Hey, give everything its due,
In the speech performance,
Even with a performer and an audience available and anxious, remember –
No words,
No talk.

One youngster over in that kiddie-bar told me that, “Deep down inside,
Everyone’s a crayon.”

Remember; So long as it’s alive, the jury’s still out.

That which is too telling, and too obvious, is also, not so obvious.

One ruler told his people that he was “really tired and stressed out” and was going on an indefinite leave; he said, “For now, you’ll have to dominate yourselves.”
…(A little cobbler in the crowd, actually he was an particle accelerator, thought, “Does
that include mistreating ourselves also?”)

…and Kyroot said:
Anyone still at all impressed with themselves has yet to be impressed
by anything impressive, or profitable.

…and Kyroot said:
Ordinary explanations, explain themselves, more than anything else.

…and Kyroot said:
The critic approached the performer, offered his hand and a drink and said,
“I didn’t even know if you’d speak to me after that blistering review I did of you; to tell you the truth I didn’t know what you’d think about it.”
The artist replied, “And you were right.”

On this partially forgettable little planet I recently dropped in on a
combination New-Age-Ole-Sorehead’s
Convention wherein I heard one speaker propose, “Let all those who poo-poo the power of names and numerology take note of this: no one named Ashkenazy or Rachmaninoff has ever played in Merle Haggard’s band.

Regardless of how it clearly seems in secondary affairs in the City, the real strength, the
real danger is from near chaos, not disciplined order.

…and Kyroot said:
The opposite of anything is at best,
Of no more significance than the first thing itself.

…and Kyroot said:
You could say that chess is a metaphor for doing This;
You might say that fencing is a metaphor for doing This;
You could even say that This is a metaphor for doing This.

…and Kyroot said:
It doesn’t matter so much WHAT something’s called
So long as it’s called something.

…and Kyroot said:
Over near the flying subway entrance of a buzz planet, a fellow dressed
like a father told a smaller version of himself, smelling like a son, “Kid, there’re two
ways you can go about this life. You can try to get justice, or you can try to get by.”

Nursery Rhyme Update: If Sally didn’t GO “round the roses,” there wouldn’t
BE any roses.

If you’re really gonna roll along with this kind of stuff, you should be manipulating,
massaging, and just generally manhandling your own brain.

If I were to ask you the question, “How do you have the most possible
fun with your brain?” and you have an answer — you’re not!

Unless you plan to settle down and retire in the City, memorize these
Refreshing Rules Of Rebellious Etiquette:
Don’t dwell on “seems,”
Don’t lean on “apparently,”
And never, ever drink with the “obvious.”
