Notes by TK

Kyroot to :10. A thinking creature can only be properly outraged by facts, not acts. Acts alone are not sufficient to produce the necessary outrage/energy transfer used by Life. E.g., note the general modern acceptance that people should talk about traumatic events experienced. A First Story for Life’s need to have everybody transfer SL/Secondary Level energies. Double reaction = double efficiency. If men didn’t talk they’d have nothing to talk about: w/o facts there can be no additional facts. Life has given man a sufficient number of acts; not so, facts.

The original Ten Commandments have grown to thousands of laws. This shows the flowering of the human intellect, not a de-evolution of criminality. Only creatures privy to facts want to be free of facts. Dreams of paradise = dreams of a place of non-injurious acts, i.e., a place of no facts. In what possible reflective manifestation does the desire for freedom in man manifest?

one king brought out the bands,

and had the planes to fly high and low overhead,
then took to the royal balcony and declared,
“Ah my friends, the good news is that I am STILL ALIVE!”

…(the people later broke off into
small working groups to try and
come up with some fresh forms of sarcasm.)

(My historical quote for the evening):
“Your Grace,
may I remind this court of the honored axiom that says,
‘Equity follows the law.’ That is,
fairness must comply with the principles of
legal uniformity except where
injustice and fraud would be the better approaches.”

(Yes,
as you and several of my nephews suspect,
they’re not making history like they used to.)

One City,
whenever they would pass a new law or ordinance
would note therein that it had only local application, and NO universal significance.
