Notes by TK

Kyroot. to :07. The “bigger fool theory” (e.g., some ill-purchase that can finally be unloaded to a bigger fool). SL/secondary level ideas have no intrinsic value, but once accepted by the intellect it must attempt constantly to transfer them to a yet bigger fool. The intellect operates as though seeking a bigger fool; note all the useless arguments, dead end comments people constantly say…de facto offerings for shared acceptance by bigger fools.

Suppose a ruler gives the people the right to vote, but, withholds (sotto voce) the info that their votes won’t count for anything, Everybody’s happy, being unable to verify that the votes weren’t counted and the ruler had his way. Life allows everyone their dreams, ideas and desires, their small triumphs—but they don’t count for anything. Note that it makes no difference that people don’t know this. If they think they make a difference, that’s good enough for Life’s (and their) purposes. A corollary: let the people say what they want. (says the ruler) and I’ll do what I want.

Consider a place where the people are allowed, once a month, to verbalize/realize the PL basis for all their SL ideas/activities. The Real Revolutionist should be continually aware of the PL/primary level basis of all Secondary Level World acts.

Yore Classic City Scenarios Stretched, (for your expanded viewing pleasure). Some see the half filled bottle and say,
“Alas, it is now half gone.”, •
,and others’ perception has them remark,’
“Ah ‘the decanter be partially filled.”,
And yet a few others will simply drink whatever’s available,
without comment.

The true revolutionist explorer
soon learns that the
closer you get to anything
the closer you get to EVERYthing.

When this one fellow,
Was offered a teaching position,
And he expressed his surprise,
Inasmuch as he admitted,
That he,
“Didn’t know anything.”,
His would-be employers,
Laughed so much,
They had to cancel the next race.

Trying to,
“Get the jump”,
On the competition,
Can be exhilaration sans pareil
Once you realize who
The competition really is.

Medical Memo:
Brain blisters,
Are not,
Repeat – not,
Caused by over use.
…and Kyroot said:
Grief over the,
Routine machinations of life,
For a Revolutionist,
Not unlike overweight,
And out dated reptiles,
Whose proper future is extinction.
…and Kyroot said
Maxims Update In Light Of Five Dimensional Physics: Love thy enemy for he is
a polarization of your friend.
…and Kyroot said:
In a land,
Where speech is not,
Recognized as the living,
Entity it is, why yes,
The first day of spring,
Come on a different day each year.
..and Kyroot said:
Even some of our,
Finest sentiments,
Can be uncomfortably stretched,
In the neural outback,
For a for instance;
Honesty does begin at home,
Unless you live in San Quentin.
…and Kyroot said:
Hey –
If you don’t,
Remind you of,
The kinda guy you are – who will
…and Kyroot said:
Not only,
Should you not,
Let some of this stuff,
Fall into the wrong hands and brains,
You should also be,
Pretty careful about even,
Letting Life know,
That you know about it.
Have I ever mentioned, That amongst,
Real Revolutionists, Some advice is, Actually a, Costumed jest?)

According to,
Several eye witness reports,
It was a most disturbing sight;
Near noon,
In a bustling local mall,
The man suddenly confronted himself in a full length mirror,
From under his coat he whipped out a semi-automatic weapon,
Pointed at his reflection and shouted,
“I’m sorry folks,
But its an emergency,
You’ll all have to leave – I’m commandeering this brain.”
…and Kyroot said:
“Be not so easily discouraged”, Oozed the soothing voice,
“After all;
If it won’t fly anywhere else, It’ll still fly in the City.”
….(Just the way,
Things s’posed to be
I guess…)
…and Kyroot said:
After a dedicated life of
studious effort, research, sacrifice and reflection
he was ready to present the world with his intellectual
magnum opus , which he proudly crowned with the title –
“The History of Philosophy”, but when
it was pointed out that there were already
more than a few books with the same name,
he said,
“0.k., change it to -‘The History of Shit.”

One Revolutionist has said that the best possible protection is in having, no safety net.
…and Kyroot said:
A man,
With a duck,
Shouldn’t make rhymes.
…and Kyroot said:
At City level,
‘Tis impossible,
To take critical note,
Of anything of a higher degree.
…and Kyroot said:
Energy begets action,
Action begets action,
Words beget action;
Do any still question that words themselves are matter and energy alive.
…and Kyroot said:
Keeping an eye,
On oneself,
May, or may not be, Similar to having one.
…and Kyroot said:
If you don’t, Look around, You can’t, Get around.
(And, oh yeah;
This piece of,
Unprofitable information, About you will, Itself,
Get around.)

One recently noisy,
Ole burr head said,
“When the gods,
Are mad and disappointed,
At least then,
They’re worthy of man.”
…and Kyroot said:
Any time,
You might be inclined,
To be overly impressed,
By the propriety of the City,
Just remember: Everybody,
Does the right thing,

Man himself
is our ultimate polarity.
…and Kyroot said:
Since no map,
Covers all the territories,’ …,
Just consider what that makes possible for a real neural explorer.
