Notes by TK

Kyroot to :09. The ordinarily productive working of the mind has the end result of moving things about out there; ordinary thought occurs at the tips of the fingers. PlainThink process is to move things about internally. It is a short step for ordinary imagining to make “secret knowledge” out of the intangible end-product of PlainThink. Ordinary intelligence is not wired to transfer energy not resulting in tangible results. New Intelligence has no practical, concrete application.

Myth: In the Real Beginning, as men became intellectually conscious, they had nothing to ask; but as soon as the Answer was given, all Questions started. Parallel myth: The gods only spoke to men thru his blood.

There is something beyond seeing life as more than things, as process: to see processes as things. C.f., men in history who have actually seen god. All self-directed, negative, grievous emotions are products of knowledge, a re-reading of what is already known; it is local knowledge and not PlainThink.

1:06 Epilogue to end with misc. comments.

One guy writes to tell me thusly, “Sometimes I think
That if you really understood A particular ‘Kyroot’
You wouldn’t need it.” (Why is he still writing me?)


…and Kyroot said:
The answer to everything itself spawns all the questions.


…and Kyroot said:
This one guy,
Over from another place,
Would act as though everything he said
Was some kind of”secret”

….(0h yeah,
He says that although
This is for his own benefit He hasn’t copyrighted it, And you can use it too.)

…and Kyroot said:
This one guy
Seems to have a better handle
On some of his confusion
Since he realized that for years
When people said that
“Genes will out”
He thought they said “WEAR out.”


…and Kyroot said:
It’s reported in some medical journals.

The universal is to farming
As the local is to an ear of corn.


…and Kyroot said:
When he didn’t want
Them to do a particular thing,
One father,
Being wise to the ways of kids,
Would tell them to be sure and do it,
And the nippers,
Being wise to nothing,
Would do it.


…and Kyroot said;
Without conspiracy
the world would not turn.


…and Kyroot said:
A partially visiting uncle told the kid, “Just putting chemicals in your brain
Won’t necessarily help prove you’re related to the DuPonts.”


…and Kyroot said:
About the best
The City and
Secondary thought can offer
By way of any finality to anything
Are ‘ever shifting junctures that could be called,
“Episodically conclusive”.

A man
Going for a run
A library card.

…and Kyroot said:
A man going for a read
Doesn’t need running shoes,.
Said the librarian, “He does need feet.”)


…and Kyroot said:
It is possible to
Knit a new intellect;
You cannot, however,
Weld new kidneys;
This speaks most well of either
The power of organs, or of
Good vocational training.

…and Kyroot said:
After a life time
Of hearing his City neighbors
Insist that a man must
Confront his problems, and
“Address the issues,
Address the issues, by gawd.”,
He formed the habit of
Responding to those graspings
And complaints that arose in his own
Mind by greeting them thusly,
“Hey, bitch – what ‘chu want?”, and
“Hey, shithead – you talkin’ to me?”


…and Kyroot said:
Even things that “Don’t make sense”
Can actually make sense.
(Well, hey,
Come on,
It’s gotta be so.
Since everybody knows
It’s true the
Other way around.)

This one little kid
Would periodically announce,
“If you dress up
You’ll throw up.”,
And his Ma Ma mused,
“When it comes to matters
Cerebral haute couture
Me fears the lad will forever
Be outfitted polyester, and off-the-rack.”


…and Kyroot said:
Just to keep things equitable,
Every forty-five years this one planet Reverses the order of their alphabet.


…and Kyroot said:
There is that which cannot forget.


…and Kyroot said:
I happened to be chatting with a chap
Over near one of the City buildings
Who told me that after a long life of being
Hostile toward religion and
Cynical of people’s spiritual rituals,
He had, of late,
Come to a revision of”thought-sorts”, and
Now felt no alarm over such matters as
The offering of prayers and supplications
To “hoped for deities”, for,
As he put it,
“Such pleas for help from higher forces
Don’t cost anything,
Don’t make your situation any worse, and
All things generally considered – what else you gonna do?”

It’s hard to be famous Without becoming Someone’s hobby.


…and Kyroot said:
Once upon a tale
There was a king who had an
Uncanny grip on the
Operational dimensions of power,
For an instance;
Right before the commencement of
Any judicial matter
He would execute the judge,
The lawyers,
All accusers and defendants, and
The jury as well.

(I believe,
“Uncanny grip”
About covers it.)

…and Kyroot said:’
A few can still recall stories
once told about a telegram sent to earth
which was never delivered;
One version reports the message being; “If you have to
you still haven’t
figured it out.”

…and Kyroot said:
On most of your planetary levels
The invisible aspect of what men are pleased
To call “justice” is like this;
A one eyed man HAS
One eye.

…and Kyroot said:
To each generation of thought
It is given to say,
“Although we may not live
To see the triumph of our views
We depart knowing we aided therein.”

Utterly delight – no… How precisely accurate.
(And down that big
Wide track,
“The City Rolls On”)


…and Kyroot said:
That dreamed-of “occult”basis common to all religions
does exist – it is blood, guts and politics.
