Notes by TK

Kyroot to :10. Ordinary intellect is helplessly thing-oriented and considers thinking as a means to an end: knowledge. E.g., statement: “if I had a car, I would be happy” shows that happiness is desired, not the car per se; but ordinary intellect takes the car as the object of desire, as it is unable to focus on the process of happiness. Hence the bad reputation of material things as not being able to deliver happiness. The object cannot sustain happiness.

Ordinary consciousness has an unnoticed, unregistered awareness of this fact as revealed in obviously literally incorrect metaphoric wisdom such as “the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong”. This really refers to all races being infinite processes without winner or loser things-specific, since the swift and strong are always winners.

Knowledge = seriousness; knowledge = comfort, complacency; knowledge = “maladaptiveness”, i.e., the tendency not to adapt to further investigations. Thinking = joyful, vitality, innovative. Why would a Real Revolutionist be content to find the “holy grail” rather than to seek it forever?
