Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. Consider: energy is living its own separate existence, has its own identity, with men as its medium. E.g.: man’s expectation to be able to classify men into “types”. The ordinary mind is wired up to expect that one man should play only one role, transfer only one kind of energy predominantly, unmixed with others. But this is not the reality: a dominating man in all activities must nevertheless be submissive to his boss at work (a grudging submission) and will pleasurably submit to an attractive co-worker.

The intellect cannot translate energy fully into words, there is always a loss thru friction, the entropy process itself. Thus no universal truth can ever be conveyed even if such existed. Connection to man’s perennial pursuit of improvement, of change for the better: the accomplished is never quite satisfying because incomplete.

With a certain blurring of time zones, and abridgement of dimensional
restrictions, it becomes possible that the
First to go,
Is the last to stay.

One troubled looking chap told me that his fears are not lashed to the machinations of his neighbors inasmuch as the dogs of war cry, “Havoc” and stalk about inside his own britches.

Of course we could play “Dirty Quiz” and ask why men so enjoy being made satirical sport of?

One father in the backyard sitting on an obstacle, and talking to his son
(you go figure) had the following to say, “One sure way to tell if you’re being a ‘serious person’ is that you have no room for small talk, or small ideas,”
and a neighbor’s kid, lurking behind a pretext, thought, “Yeah, cause all your space
would be taken up by super small ones.”

(Whatever you do, don’t take this personally.) The rich always encourage pride in the poor, for it costs them nothing.

In one quarter ’tis thought that, suicide is the heroic act for the faint of heart, while across town ’tis believed that, self-slaughter is the wimpish way for the bold, but,
either way you look at it.

If you can “count your blessing,” you should be ashamed.

One of the many pleasing quirks in secondary City affairs is now, for your shopping convenience, wrapped nicely in the following theorem: “Sure, anybody can call a halt,

As a wisely ole voice told a gullibly ole ear:

If they offer you a shot, ask for gas;
If they offer you gas, ask for a second opin-i-on.”

One guy (who you may know) said, “I’m looking for a partner,” and his
partner said, “Tell me about it.”
