Notes by TK

Kyroot to :09. The purpose of intellect: to create sentences of facts (w/o qualifiers of true, false etc.) which flesh out, and make acts in Secondary Level World acceptable. Intellect’s job is to civilize, complexify and give dimension to experience; to keep it “up to date”. Acts can’t have viable existence w/o support of collateral explanatory facts. The viable act w/o fact (i.e., inexplicable act that is remembered) becomes the foundation for institutionalization of the supernatural, e.g., religion.

The intellect producing sentences of facts is not engaged in new, independent thinking; it is making “just facts”. Comparably speaking, acts do not seem as polarized as (value packed pro and con) as do facts. E.g., men are less upset by the actual act of death than they are about notification of the fact of their (possibly) imminent, but certainly inevitable death. There is use in this for the Real Revolutionist.
