Notes by TK

Kyroot to :07. Fact: it is the intellect’s responsibility to see SL/secondary level connections. Question: are connections discovered by the intellect, or created by it? There are no real connections in Primary Level World rather it is connection. The Secondary Level World is supported by connections seen then commented on, measured and remembered by the intellect. The intellect’s belief in cause and effect represses unnecessary variety. Thought is connection, the making and experiencing of connections; therefore there are no such things as “facts” only connections.

The intellect seeks not answers/truth, but connections. The intellect can grow in this way because there is no end of connections. There is no universal truth in the Secondary Level World. There are no facts to explain human behavior, only the pointing out of connections. Truth is a camouflage for connections. Truth is a natural arising from the activity of the intellect, i.e., it is that “final” connection for which it seeks.

We should all indeed – be so lucky.”
