Notes by TK

Kyroot to :05. The Real Revolutionist must be able to persuade himself, not thru the City modes of fear, promise, or peer pressure, to pursue unknown goals. This Thing engages in none of the City modes of persuasion or else it’s not This Thing.

The proper, civilized Secondary Level World man will “pretend” that personally irrelevant info to him (i.e., starving Africans) is nonetheless individually pertinent, serious and important. The super civilized (the Real Revolutionist) knowingly pretends, understanding the ultimate impertinence, yet taking everything to be personally important and relevant. Connected to Life keeping all middle class men mortgaged, buying SL/secondary level stuff, to the extent they die in debt. The supreme complimentary eulogy for a man is: “he died in debt” (to Life). All men are driven to endlessly spend their mental resources, to be constantly in debt to Life. Memory is a main agency of incurring and supporting debt.

In an historical survey of “fantasy fiction” the first stage (say 5700 B.C.) in the sequence would be the story of “future man” (i.e., superman) whose perfecting virtue would be the possession of human emotions, specifically charity and compassion, replacing the uncivilized feral passions. The succeeding stage would be exemplified by Star trek story where the “superman is represented on the crew by Dr. Spock., whose perfecting virtue is the lack of human emotions! Why is this? What might the next stage be? Moral: there is no such thing as a strictly offensive or defensive weapon. Ail movement in the City is interchangeable; all thoughts are fungible (i.e., being freely exchangeable or replaceable in whole or in part, for another of like nature or kind, e.g., money).

1:02 Epilogue: note just how weird” This Thing really is!!


…and Kyroot said:
As regards everything else – forget It:
…and Kyroot said:
Under the gravitation forces,
Of the Secondary world,
The mind can still,
Skip and leap,
From land to sea,
And travel from heaven to earth;
The one small thing,
It cannot do, is –
Escape itself.
…and Kyroot said:
One grandfatherly,
Advised a neural neighbor,
If you don’t notice,
Things a’changin’,
They don’t change all that much.”
…and Kyroot said:
There is,
No justice, In space.
..and Kyroot said:
To personally accept,
And entertain criticism, Is to have been made, Your own foe.
…and Kyroot said:
One sore head,
With an advanced degree,
(Or maybe it was,
An advanced sore head,
With a degree),
“If you can accept,
Humiliation gracefully –
You’ve been,
Humiliated twice:”
…and Kyroot said:
When a man insists, “Do not morn for me,
When I am dead and gone.” well well…,
You can just,
What his,
Will’s gonna reveal.
…and Kyroot said:
A speaker over in the park,
Caught my attention with this,
He proclaimed,
“Everything can be more,
Than one thing at a time,
For instance;
What greater praise,
Can a man receive,
Than to hear it said that,
‘You alone are you’,
And yet,
What more gagging news,
Could be possible?”
…and Kyroot said:
(A recent “over-heard”): “Well sure, …(Might I add that, At least he’s, Supposed to.)
What’d you expect, McBeat, The conductor, Always knows,
Where the down beat is.”
…and Kyroot said:
Late last week-end,
Just before “Last call”,
This one angel,
Next to me at the bar,
And next to passing out,
Confided to me,
“Being dumb,
Won’t get you into heaven”,
(Pause – swallow – burp),
And he added,
“But it sure’s hell,
Won’t keep you out.”
…and Kyroot said:
To ease,
What he perceived,
To be,
“Neural overload”,
This one,
Health-minded-menu-muser announced,
That he and his family,
Were making the switch over to,
Light thoughts .
…and Kyroot said:
A man with nice shoes,
Will not have the,
Same standing in the community,
As a woman with,
Aromatic bosoms.
…and Kyroot said:
Change’s brother,
Is Stagnation,
And Growth’s family name, Is Death.
…and Kyroot said:
What I perceived to be,
A piece of his,
Passing philosophy,
This person proposed,
“If you make like something’s,
A ‘big deal’,
Then at least…well, at least…,
Well, at least it won’t,
Seem so much like,
The little deal it really is.”
…and Kyroot said:
Everything in,
City life is,
Proved and demonstrated;
The nearest example,
Of a true ipse dixit,
Would be,
Whatever Life first said.
…and Kyroot said:
Anthropomorphism, Is evidence of,
Advanced retardation.
…(…and Kyroot, “Oh-welled”;
If you prefer – retarded advancation.)
…and Kyroot said:
If you don’t notice, It don’t matter.
…(I don’t know, What I’d do, Without me.)
…and Kyroot said:
Conversation in a bistro,
Over near the market place:
First guy:”Any time you talk about,
‘Double digit inflation’,
You’re talking about,
Two things.”,
Second guy, (somewhat annoyed): “So,
When ain’t cha?”
…and Kyroot said:
If your,
Sense of individuality,
Seems strongest,
In an institutional setting,
Then that’s,
Where you belong.
…and Kyroot said:
Mused one chap,
In a supine position,
“In the Secondary world,
It’s all the same Ahhhh.”
