Notes by TK

Kyroot to :10. Two laws of 6-d physics: 1) nobody knows the facts until there have been some acts. 2) nobody knows acts until they’ve heard the facts. Corollary: men do not invent facts… acts do! Facts are singular to man and w/o them acts are unrecognizable; facts act as markers, delineators of acts by differentiating them from the seamless background. W/o facts, no Secondary Level World of man can exist. It is man’s responsibility to turn out facts as much as it is to act. There has been an unnoticed shift in man’s Secondary Level World- men struggle more over facts than acts.
