Notes by TK

Kyroot to :10. Man’s collective memory is the perfect defense for slander/revision of the past since it is the truth. The truth is the perfect defense for slander legally. Individual memory is biased and slanderous but the collected memory of all men holds every possible view of the subject under recall; it is the whole truth. Men thus do not feel guilty by slandering/revising the past; and Life benefits from the continuity this creates.

Such can be literally used by the Real Revolutionist if he realizes every opinion is slanderous and rightfully so for Life’s own growth and health. He disarms the “continuity bomb” set up in his own consciousness by Life to ensnare him in its agenda. The world is big enough for every possible memory; everybody’s memory and the size of the world are the same thing. For the Real Revolutionist there is a single view beyond the two views of the City: the view of how everything is arranged to accommodate the future. This single view is absolutely unrelated to the singular view of the fanatic.

The cowardly band together, whereas the brave live mostly alone. Ordinary thought can only plagiarize, revise previous opinion and therefore must band together in cowardice—there simply is no other choice.Real Revolutionist thought is new and threatening (to ordinary thinking) and bravely lives apart, goes its own way.

One ole sore head called the kid aside and told him,

about our position relative to the rest of those bozos, I should point out that here in everyday life EVERYone’s brain is on auto pilot.”

….(Not long after that
one of the kid’s uncles contacted me and insisted he be given his own Kyroot, or at least some space here for him to tell the kid that it’s impossible to be “TOO smug.”)

whenever they wanted to get together,
would ask their feminine counterparts to stay away so that they could more freely talk about “guy stuff”;

had any idea what “guy stuff” was, or how to talk about and didn’t want the women to know.)
