Notes by TK

Kyroot to :06. Humanity can be divided into two groups: those who want to tell you how they feel about, “problems” (human, Secondary Level problems) and those who want seek treatment/cure of such problems. The Real Revolutionist is a third group which avails of the ability to investigate why it is that men must have such problems and why none make such investigation their focus. Ordinary growth (SL) is only possible via problems; there can be no comparison without them. Problems are the gauge of all Secondary Level progress. But note that the ordinary intellect cannot even isolate or properly recognize a problem in its necessarily manifold connection within the seamless reality of Life.

The tyranny of radical perception rendering impossible a return to the previous limited perception of the City. If you think anything is wrong then everything is.

The most damning of Secondary Level diagnoses: “that’s not reasonable” It is the equivalent of Primary Level self-harmful behavior. Secondary Level problems are the gauge of Secondary Level growth and are incurable as such.

To the dog, a man’s apologia and enlightened explanation of fleas is useless and uninteresting. Ordinary intellect cannot go beyond its own interests.

The ordinary intellect wants not the “truth” precisely because it will set it free, destroy its problems, rendering it moribund.


…and Kyroot said:
One world,
Solved their problem, Of crappy food by,
At one-fell-swooping, Declaring their crap, “Gourmet Entrees.”
…and Kyroot said:
They asked this ole guy,
How old he was,
And he said,
I won’t tell you,
My exact age,
But I will say that,
I’m older than I ever,
Planned to be.”
…and Kyroot said:
Although it does,
Kinda make me sad,
I gotta go ahead,
And tell you –
Those who worry about,
Whether professional wrestling,
Or not,
Are the same guys,
That’ld worry about,
Is real or not.
…and Kyroot said:
Stretched out to his full height,
Standing securely on the,
Shoulders of several assumptions,
The speaker proclaimed,
“In defense of my fellow creatures,
Let me say –
If men weren’t,
So much like they are,
They could be,
Some way else.”
…and Kyroot said:
In the City,
Some have said,
That the,
“Eyes are the first to go”,
Others counter that,
“Memory is the first to go”,
But one ole timer did a wrap on it,
By simply noting that,
“Every thing’s the first to go.”
…and Kyroot said:
“There, there,
Young man;
It’s not nice,
To talk with,
Words in your mouth.’
…and Kyroot said:
To the victor, Belongs the, Victorettes.
…and Kyroot said:
Another small sign once spotted in a Revolutionist Camp; “A man’s reflection,
Is not his friend.”
…and Kyroot said:
If systems,
Can’t explain themselves, What might this augur, Regarding words?
…and Kyroot said:
Defense is, Criticism,
In reverse.
…and Kyroot said:
Certain of history’s more illustrious figures Were so gargantuan and complex
That they were actually composed of several people.
…and Kyroot said:
Always wait,
Until they ask you, Then say,
“You waited too late.
…and Kyroot said:
Since all,
Man made stuff,
(The world of Secondary affairs),
Is in a constant state,
Of deterioration,
Man’s intellect,
Not so surprisingly,
Assumes same for the Primary.
…(A manifold eye,
Will recognize these, However,
As separate scenarios
…and Kyroot said:
If what you have to say,
Is so important,
(Even otherworldly),
That you must don,
Special garb to say it,
Either you or it,
Aren’t as important as you thought.
…and Kyroot said:
One middlin’ type fellow,
(And perhaps,
Even with additional characteristics),
Said out loud,
“If everything else
Was as much fun as sex,
We wouldn’t need sex.”
…and Kyroot said:
Although what I am about to say,
Cannot be precisely laid,
Within the City groves,
Of verbal-math,
I’m gonna give it to you anyway,
Like this;
One of the reasons,
For going away,
Is so you can return.
…and Kyroot said:
Although intrigue, …(As to “with what”?, You’ll have to, Fill this in.)
And conflict,
Are a part of the,
Natural order of things,
In the City,
The Revolutionist,
Must not be incompatible.
…and Kyroot said:
The most common,
Dependable cause of
Secondary disasters is a
Lack of topographical knowledge especially,
Regarding areas,
Outside of the City,
Your City,
Any City that’s -“out there’
..and Kyroot said:
Is the attempt,
To exercise power,
With invisible bullets – words.
…and Kyroot said:
In the Secondary world,
Once you,
Know what to expect,
You won’t expect too much…
(Or could we say,
Won’t mis-expect.)
…and Kyroot said:
Just think;
If everybody didn’t have,
Their own little ways of doing things, Why there wouldn’t be enough, Everybodys to go around.
(Be thankful,
For what you’ve got Even if you don’t, “Get it” yet.)
