Notes by TK

Kyroot to :10. Knowledge is non-fungible (non-interchangeable, like works of art vs. screwdrivers); thinking is fungible in intent (i.e., it has none), omnipresent, infinitely universal. Knowledge is polarized; thinking is non-magnetic and thus can go anywhere. Knowledge has a strictly local status. Thinking is not restrained by time; knowledge must be so restrained (as well as by space). “Things” are chemically-electrically unable to deliver the satisfaction that they promise. Only processes can offer unconditional pleasure.

The process is what people unknowingly seek, not the thing. Only thinking can provide a Real Revolutionist the proper enthusiasm. Consider: what might be an action without an object? An unrecognized reality of Primary Level World – i.e., to meet the needs of a Primary Level World process. All actions of the Secondary Level World are to establish, reach or redefine thing-specifics of the mind. A Secondary Level World of action without objects would be a dying one, verbally starving (no words = no growth).

Consider: matter-energy polarity = things-processes polarity. Matter-energy is the original polarization. Consider: why would any Real Revolutionist space traveler want to get to some planet rather than travel forever?

Make a note not to repeat this act),

All of human knowledge was
Invented by man.”,

But recalling his lesson
Slapned his partner instead),
It’s all just invented by other men….Hummmm,
But what if there’s an alternative….Hummmm.”
