Notes by TK

Kyroot to :12. When Life does change, it is in an unsurprising, orderly and stable fashion. Radical change, like that of the overthrow of Communism in East Europe, when it occurs, rapidly becomes a mere reference point, a footnote in history. It is as if a step is skipped in a dance; it was too abrupt to proceed predictably from act to fact. People just lose sight of it, forget its intense radical nature. The too-abrupt change, although existing below the surface, is never included in written history.

Acts are related to the present-now in a tripartite division of time; facts are collaterally connected more to the past and future. Connection with men being able to accept acts, but not able to accept facts gracefully. Facts follow acts except when the act is too drastic (Cf. communist overthrow).

One way to solve problems is to force them to match up with solutions already known. Acts and facts are related to problems and solutions respectively. If solutions solve problems then facts must cure acts (Cf. psychoanalysis). Also, vice versa.

Another viewer writes,
(but notes that they would really

Another distinguished (how’s that?) viewer writes,
“Dear Big K:
After listening to you for some time now
it would seem to me that the following might be correct:
As a child our interests are all in Primary matters,
then when we become adults our minds turn to affairs
of a Secondary nature,
but then when we reach the older years our needs seem
to return to Primary concerns.
Mr. K, I not only find this most interesting,
but also extremely frightening, or else encouraging –
I don’t know which – can you help?”
Well, Dear Distinguished (see I didn’t forget) Viewer:
First let me ask – How old are you?…

In one of those collateral sectors in one of your sister cities
there’s a guy whose testosterone level’s so high even HE’S frightened.
Wait, just a moment – What’s that? What?…
Well, he’s just corrected me, he says that should be his neurotransmitter level.

A particular question-&-answer sequence banned in most locales:
Question–why did man have to come up with the word & concept of the “Mind”?
Answer– so that by having this specific name, “The mind”
He’d believe that his mind was something separate from “him.”
…quick! — run for your life! —
I knew I should’ve not brought this up! — here come the propriety police!

And now some: “News for the non-standard sportsman”:
Leave the chumps to their bait and tackle,
The easy way to catch fish is simply teach ’em to say, “I,” and they’ll drown.
