Notes by TK

Kyroot to :15. A man’s expectations, thoughts, feelings about life are based not on experience (acts) of others but on facts (reports) about same. What would be the difference if it were based on acts rather than facts? There is a very useful center to realization of how little one’s life is driven by acts/experience.

Ask yourself: TWE has Life arranged man to be so dependent upon info-facts (“news”)? What purpose do facts serve in their effect on man’s intellect? A Real Revolutionist bases his behavior on acts of others, not reports. Be annoyed (if you must) over behavior of another rather than reports of behavior. A prime example of facts following acts: telling “what kind of guy I am”.

One ole man
after many years of entertaining and instructing his kid
with stories of his earlier exploits
sat the lad down and said,
“Now that you’re old enough to wear your hat on sideways
you’re old enough to know that I just made up
all that stuff I told you happened to me.”
The nipper calmly removed his headpiece and said,
“That’s okay Pop, I just made up listening to it.”

The local “Occult Expert” of one City says that people from other planets don’t have to go to the bathroom…

Although it is not always noted
I should caution you that the offer of any really NEW info is for “A limited time only.”

and Kyroot said:
When processes are made “thing-specific” polarities can seem to trade places.

_and Kyroot said:
Over in the soup aisle of the grocery store a chap approached me and said he’d decided to name his own mental operations, “Fruit Loops,” because, he reasoned, it didn’t make any sense and was therefore appropriate.

At exactly twelve-o-one on his twenty-first birthday
the kid of one ole sore head was handed a fake gold watch
(well, it looked fake), but his pater told him the real essence of the gift was
carried in the inscription on its back which said,

‘Know The Truth’ and The Truth Will Make You Say – ‘So What?'”

One guy had what he called his, “Little Theory.”
He only had it just for a little while.
His friends subsequently would refer to it as his,
“Just For A Little While Theory.”
(Have you noticed the increasing number of
people who use the word “theory” when what they actually mean
would be more properly reflected by such terms as, ‘idea,’ or ‘notion.’
[Of course I guess I could be mistaken, but that is my
the – I mean, idea].)

you should wiggle your eyebrows.
