Notes by TK

Kyroot to :09. The news operates at its own tempo and level, i.e., dealing in the not-news. Thus it functions to keep men apart from Real News and its seeking out. News is tied to the necessary orderly, measured pace of the growth of the Secondary Level World. Every day is a “slow news day” notwithstanding the occasional disaster or coup d’ etat. As long as a man believes that he can think, that he does think, he is prevented from trying to really think. As long as knowledge is believed to be the proper conclusion to thought, no further pursuit of thinking is effected.

To believe the purpose of transportation is to get somewhere, prevents inquiry into the nature of transportation itself. This Thing is the saying aloud of what nobody is or has ever thought about; compare this with City popularity characterized by “I only say aloud what everybody is already thinking”. Everything seemingly new in the City has a negative spin on it, i.e., requiring the effort to deal with it.

Siege mentality (us against them)—an earmark of all cults—is the attempt to isolate and lessen connections with life, to sever connections with Life. This is the last thing a Real Revolutionist should be doing; he attempts to increase his connections to Life.

Once you put a name on it, You can put the blame on it.

…and Kyroot said:
Life eventually outgrows EVERYTHING
stick around longer than
the rest of these Yahoos, and
see for yourself.)

…and Kyroot said:
A mischievous math maven
maintained to a mostly immature mob,
“Only the young believe in love,” and
one little snipper-whapper said,
“Yeah, but isn’t it only the young who NEED love?” to which
the digit-dodger replied,
“Say kid, just how old ARE you anyway?”

…and Kyroot said:
A knight is not a Revolutionist warrior unless he can order himSELF about with no apparent justification.

…and Kyroot said:
Stability carried too far becomes rigor mortis.

…and Kyroot said:
Even with the gargantuan and grandiose, the luxury of the excessive is a limited offer.

…and Kyroot said:
One guy, even though sometimes
complimented for his insightful thinking,
said he had to quit listening to himself
least he become any more like himself than he is already.

…and Kyroot said:
imported intelligence doesn’t cost any more is that it’s not on sale.

…and Kyroot said:
One patriarch told his brood, “If you don’t know,
it’s important to know that SOMEONE knows.”

…and Kyroot said:
The authority of three is in its complete coverage of spatial reality. The impact of two is in its control of all things polarized, and the power of one is in its exclusivity.
Stand back – make way,
Here comes the king, here comes the king:
“Yes, it is me, it is I, and all must submit, by and by.
Numbers can tell
what letters can’t see, knowledge’s deadly
It’s on my hands, it’s in my mind, knowledge is forever process-blind.
Here comes the king, here comes the king.”

…and Kyroot said:
In the middle of some most interesting comments
the speaker said, “Let me tell you something
about my life in this regard…” and the audience
as one said, “No,” and arose to leave–but
found that heads have no doors.

and Kyroot said:
What can be more satisfying to one’s secondary soul than to loudly ride the crest of the City’s, “Thought For The Day.”

..and Kyroot said:
In his profound yet puzzling scrutiny of the past he says he “scans each decade for headlines.”

Kyroot said:
Real, revolutionist knowledge eats its own footprints.

…and Kyroot said:
“On this you can depend,”
said the slightly rightly man – “No one trusts sugar.”

and Kyroot said:
Late one afternoon
a certain man turned to his brain and sharply announced,
“If things should ultimately turn out as badly as I sometimes fear, I’m holding YOU responsible.”

and Kyroot said:
If rats had better tailors…

…and Kyroot said:
Over in a place where such things are possible, a god said,
“Hey, I may be a god, but I’m flexible.”

…and Kyroot said:
One guy of my acquaint
always drove with his headlights on, whether he had a car or not.

and Kyroot said:
I have two little stories to tell,
and only one sheet of paper before me.
One is about a king and a reporter and
the other about a piece of knowledge and an interviewer,
but since they have the same punch line I’ll just
relate the first one while you simultaneously think of the second:
A reporter asked a king,
“Governing others seems such an iffy and imprecise business,
what’s the trick? Is it that
people will obey if you expect them to obey?”
And the monarch replied,
“No, it is much more than that,
I have never even considered any other possibility.”
The neuron smiled pleasantly at the interviewer and asked,
“Is there the least chance you understand what I said?”

…and Kyroot said:
By the sex act
men attempt to make the analog, digital.

and Kyroot said:
Under cover of darkness
even more darkness slipped in.
(Let this be another lesson to you:
You can “depend” on logic, but you can’t TRUST it.)

…and Kyroot said:
When asked,
this one man said,
“I’ll be glad to try and respond —
of course, I can’t speak for myself…”

and Kyroot said:
There are reports of this one world
whose Gross National Intellectual Product Index is tied to the
manufacturing and distribution of “shoes for fish.”
(I’ll certainly – (chortle) –
pass along any new reports as they become-(chuckle) available.)

…and Kyroot said:
In intellectual areas,
just as with geo-political ones. Those who get there first
are considered the “real” residents.

…and Kyroot said:
This one guy who’d always eat too much would always say – “Hey, I ate too much.”

…and Kyroot said:
And another neat thing about the dance is that the submissive can blame all their
ills and faults on the corruption of the dominate.
….(Don’t you just love it! And all the people yelled,
“Yeahhhhh! – until you mentioned it.”)
