Notes by TK

Kyroot to :09. Consider the response to the question: How do you do anything?, it is the same as for the question: How do you do everything? The universal always dominates the local; it is always in firm control of the ordinary mind. New Thinking always “thinks up” whatever it considers, i,e., thinks all possible pertinent thoughts about the subject that can be thought, thus leaving nothing left to think/talk about; it resolves all questions about a subject instantly. Connected to not talking about what you understand (have thought about universally). Why think further about what has already had all thoughts possible thought about it? The non-local view absolutely consumes the local. “The answer to Paris is the answer to France”

RICs (Real, Imaginary Concepts) are the kind of fuel to use in New Thinking. They are open-ended conclusions, flexible certainties, silly-seriousness. Note: none of these can exist in the atmosphere of a planet of passing-judgment-knowledge.

all. I think are someone else’s thoughts.”,

so he went to the expert on the roof who
hit him in the goobers,
