Kyroot. to :15. That “men shouldn’t cry” (be emotional) is based on the reality that the cortical brain should oversee, override the lower, older limbic brain; it is facts attempting to override acts. Note the barbarism of conflict over facts exceeds that of conflict over acts. Act-based conflict is direct, unambiguous, short-lived and has an identifiable, distinct completion.

Fact-based conflict is unstable, “spongy”, absolutely un-absolute. Fact-based conflict is more extremely pungent: energy. efficient. Conflict over uncertain goals produces an optimal energy transfer, maximum heat, since the resolution is not identifiable, comes to no recognizable conclusion. The cause of fact-based conflict is uncertain to unknown, therefore the resolution is similarly uncertain.

A king who,
for many years would say,
“Skip the small stuff,”
one day added up all that he’d skipped,
and was so impressed that he
made his brother-in-law the Keeper Of The Small Stuff.

A thing cut in two
is not then necessarily “two things.”

…and Kyroot said:
One ole man told his brain – Oh no, that should surely say,
“Told his off spring” – told him,
“Say, look here kid,
don’t ever come to me and say,
‘I’m all dressed up with no place to go.’
cause I ain’t ever gonna be the one to tell you to get dressed up.”

…and Kyroot said:
We got ourselves a letter here
from a man who wants to make a personal
contribution – a new verse – to that continuing folk chorale,
“Hey Lawdee Mama, Look What Life’s Done To Me Now.”
To wit: He says that he has, in part,
been taken over by the spirit of Mozart,
but that the part so seized affects his height – not his
musical ability!

…and Kyroot said:
The City circles
that literature deemed esteem-able,
ultimately reveal more to its readers than it did to its author.

…and Kyroot said:
Nothing “out there”
proves anything “in here”
other than “out there” and “in here” exists.

…and Kyroot said:
Over near the northern kerosene fields, living in a trailer
is a man who carries with him at all times a life size copy of the letter “N.”

…and Kyroot said:
A certain professor over in the City university’s
Philosophy Department gives his latest thinking as follows:
“There are at least five different ways to look at any problem,
and at least three different ways to interpret these five views”;
he says the only real question remaining is –
“Will I get tenure on the basis of such a cockamamie theory?”

…and Kyroot said:
Humor remains the underground tremors from polarized explosions.

“You know, kid”,
(said a voice I’m going to identify as, “the ole man,” but which by now you can guess otherwise on your own), “If the one thing that distinguishes us from these other living creatures here – our thinking–doesn’t give you singular, distinguishing pleasure, then I’m afraid we both “missed the boat,” bus, plane, and last train to Clarksville.”

…and Kyroot said:
One fellow compares thinking to bobsledding, (although he admits he’s never bobsledded).

…and Kyroot said:
Everybody that works for the king ain’t necessarily paid by the king.

From amidst the crowd around the
Third Annual Pushy Guy’s Entrepreneurship & Coin Machine Convention
I heard one man say that in most of his
little penny dispensers he’d replaced the gum balls
with capsules of brains;
he also noted that he was soon forced to drop his prices.
…..(You know,
he could’ve just wandered over
from the Ole Sore Head’s meeting across the hall.)

…and Kyroot said:
In his attempt to “get along,”
a fellow told me he uses the following method:
Whenever he hears something he’s never heard before, or something he disagrees with he simply says,
“Well, I’ll eat a frosted doughnut.”

…(He says this method has thus far not caused him any irreparable damage.)

…and Kyroot said:
In a healthy, vibrant Secondary world declarations are almost as important as deeds;
(those who do not recognize this fail to do so at the peril of their own good digestion
and tranquility.)

…and Kyroot said:
The kind of story one probably
shouldn’t tell children…so
I’ll just relate it as an example
of what probably not to do;
One guy’s partner said to him,
“If you really loved me
you’d let me be sick more often.”

…and Kyroot said:
From the deep red ravines of its distant time came a bombastic voice that roared throughout the universe, touching every sun, planet, and molecule. It proclaimed,
“Remember, the amount you send is up to you.”

…and Kyroot said:
One guy with a family who
all had their own individual idea, theory, motto, or slogan,
came to his late in life,
and it was,
“If you stare while you’re eating
your grub’ll taste like dog food.”

…(Yeah, yeah, I know,
maybe it didn’t come late enough.)

…and Kyroot said:
It would be an insult to a true singularity to discuss its singularity.

..and Kyroot said:
Just as a little Ha Ha, you know – joke, this one guy’s partner would sometimes
play like he wasn’t there…… What a joke…
(but they couldn’t decide on whom).

…and Kyroot said:
There are two levels
at which humans can be mad. The first level is where you can say why you’re mad,
and the other one is the serious sucker.

…and Kyroot said:
If you COULD disassemble YOUR defective world-of-man
and put it back together “properly” it would be sillier than ever.

and Kyroot said:
One ole guy so laboriously
drilled into his kid the need to put
“everything in its place”
that the nipper decided that when he got grown
he was either not going to have any things or else
no places.

(I guess it’s a good thing the ole men don’t know
what’s going on in the heads of the kids or else they’d never become ole men.)

…and Kyroot said:
A fellow says he hears everybody in the City talking about playing
“mind games” on each other he says
that leaves him out.

…(Uh uh! – If you wanna know – YOU ask him!)

and Kyroot said:
One ruler would only allow himself photographed in the royal nude;
he forbade any attempted public or private analysis of this,
and so far the people seemed well served.

…and Kyroot said:
Every word has its own unique color except the word “color.”
…..(Justice will be served in the 3-D dining room
no matter who’s present, absent, late or un-hungry.)

…and Kyroot said:
An unnamed source has leaked a story that says
a certain writer is immersed in Star Chamber proceedings
against him by the Inner City Literary Guild;
his apparent offense is that he proposed that all authors,
whenever they reach an area in their writings
wherein they lack any substantive knowledge,
would leave a number of blank pages,
(the exact count to be properly reflective
of the extent of their ignorance.)

…(Perhaps unrelated, but you may recall that
several weeks ago a spokesman for the Guild announced that they had
suspended capital punishment as one of their organizational reprimands.)

…and Kyroot said:
To pursue the Revolutionist grail
you must, in times of need,
be prepared to eat your own foot;
(in times of plenty you must likewise be prepared to
realize there are no times of plenty afoot.)

..and Kyroot said:
This one particular chap one day said to his partner,
“Boy, you’d really be scared if you knew what I know,”
to which his partner replied,
“What ‘da mean, ‘if’ – Look at me! – how’da think I got this pale? –
carrying buckets of water?”

…and Kyroot said:
One guy,
off on his own,
developed an apparatus he called,
The Life Phone.

…..(It didn’t work, but he called it that just the same.)

…and Kyroot said:
Over in the”G7B Dash B” Galaxy
is a mid-sized planet whose people became so desperate
over their crumbling judicial structures
and their dwindling supplies of ammunition
that they began executing their philosophers
by having them shot by cannon loads of poets at close range.

…and Kyroot said:
Just above his early-morning bathroom mirror one chap stuck this message:
“Remember: The end has not yet come ’til all the nuts have worked loose”

…and Kyroot said:
Remember: If you invent your own world
you can also invent all the stuff that doesn’t exist in it.

…and Kyroot said:
One typical chap climbed to the top of a wind-swept, mopped and waxed hill
and exclaimed to the heavens,
“I regret, Oh Great Ones,
that I have but ONE mind to offer unto thy service,”
and some of the gods said to one another,
” ‘One,’ he did say, ‘One’ didn’t he? – Jeeze, what a close call.”

…and Kyroot said:
In a surprising and unprecedented move one planet officially announced that,
“Most problems HAVE no solution.”
