Notes by TK

Kyroot to :09. In myth there are two ways of fulfilling existence: the way of knowledge (which is the orderly ordinary expansion of the human intellect) and the way of thinking. These are of distinct and different orders: knowledge is a ‘thing’ while thinking is a process…a process of process. Knowledge is held to be the supreme attainment by the Secondary Level World intellect, but it is limited, rigid and repetitious.

Knowledge is composed of ‘facts’ which once known can only be what they are: absolutely definitive and precluding further thinking (although not precluding additional facts). All knowledge is conclusion. Thinking is infinite, flexible and diverse…all those things your mother warned you against! The purpose of thinking is not to collect knowledge (conclusions) but to lead to further thinking. Thinking is an end in itself. Critical times arise for the Real Revolutionist in the way of thinking. One: realization that one’s own knowledge is precisely that which interferes with and precludes the way of thinking.

This realization is diametrically contrary to Secondary Level World intellect’s conviction in the deliverance of facts, of answers. Another critical time: when the intellect unequivocally judges that further human action is useless to effect answers or cure. Then is the time to begin thinking further. Ordinary intelligence doesn’t try to think, it tries to collect knowledge. Thinking begets further thinking. It is free of all dogma, reason, sequence, self-reference and seriousness (which = death). Thinking is festivity and higher-order enthusiasm.

One time this one guy
Found an astoundingly ferocious beast
That he couldn’t identify, or
Find in any reference book;
He put it in his pocket
(There is here the possibility that he
Actually found it in his pocket,
But this alternative interferes with
The flow of the tale, so-),
He put it in his pocket
Where it stayed until it beCAME his pocket;
He then put his pocket in his pants
Where it stayed until it beCAME his pants;
He then put his head in his pants,
And what happened after that
You know as well as I do.

One demi-fine day
A kid asked his ole man,
“Why do I never hear you
Sing the praises of parenthood,
Or offer thanks for having this little off-spring?”, and
The elder leaped into a frozen, squinting position and replied,
“Ah, it’s a trick question – right?”

Over near the commons
