Notes by TK

Kyroot to :12. All human problems will somehow boil down to be fact-based. E.g., famine remains a problem due to human political problems in distribution of food surpluses. No fact is absolute and therefore not susceptible to conclusive solution. Therein lies the efficiency of energy transfer. Optimal energy transfer requires more than acts; it requires talk about acts: facts, which being non-absolute. allow unending turmoil/friction.

If acts could speak they would be accurate; if facts could, they would be enthusiastic, not accurate. Acts are limited; facts are unlimited. From the finite flows the infinite. Facts must multiply…or Life would die. Nobody can become famous on acts alone.

Every time a car would stop in front of this one guy’s house he’d. leave town.

…and Kyroot said:
There is extended – near infinite – energy available in conflicts over “facts” that is unique in that neither side can ever qualitatively “absolutize” them.

…and Kyroot said:
Simple people
evade simple answers
unless they don’t want to.

There is an electrifying dance between the judge and the accused that only the radical eye can see.

…and Kyroot said:
One kid proudly handed to his old man his latest literary grunt-stopper,
it was entitled, “The Rhyme Of The Ancient Marinater,” and its
opening lines were as follows:
“If it weren’t for me split brain
I could not walk,
Or even hold a fork;
If it weren’t for me split brain
I could not see,
To even talk in the dark.”
……(It was about here that his
father left the room.)

…and Kyroot said:
One man refused to,
“Recognize his inferiors”,
which proved to be no difficult task.

It is strikingly unlikely
you can live in the City without believing that mirrors take sides.

The more you lived a long time ago
the more acceptable it is to have a silly name and talk funny.

…and Kyroot said:
One humid day while tossing back a few with his brother-in-law,
a leading figure of one planet’s religion was asked
if he “really believed” in all the silly rituals and
ideas he represented, and he replied,
“No, not really,
but life’s such a big scam anyway
I figure – Why not be conned by the best.”

…and Kyroot said:
Being civilized in the City sense is in developing indoor plumbing, then pondering its potential harm.

…and Kyroot said:
Thrusting a seriously seeming arm around his shoulder,
and turning him so that they both faced the sunset,
this one father said to the kid,
“A man who ‘talks nice’ is nice.”
The younger fumbled in his pockets for a few furlongs and replied,
“That’s no rule or nuthin,’
that’s just something you made up.”
“Yep, but don’t it sound nice.”

…and Kyroot said:
Just to prove his point, this one guy,
when he discovered he was losing his teeth – bought a toupee.

…and Kyroot said:
One guy’s last request was that he be buried with his brain.

…and Kyroot said:
If you know for certain – I mean pretty-well,
gosh-darn-it-all “for certain”
that Saturday’s coming,
is it pretentious to go ahead and get excited on Wednesday?

..and Kyroot said:
One fine day the fine king announced,
“All must die, and all must pay,
but not necessarily in that sequence,”
and out in the populace one guy asked his cousin,
“Who put him in charge?” –
“HE did.”

…and Kyroot said:
“Take note, me laddie,” advised the City wise father, “in poetic and transcendental discussions,
when your insight runs out – make reference to your religion.”

…and Kyroot said:
And the mails bring us yet another written missile;
this one from a gent who says that some of my more
recent comments suddenly reminded him of an
episode some years back that he thinks might now prove enlightening;
he says there was a guy in their town
who one day abruptly said, “What am I doing in your town?”

…and Kyroot said:
The Ministry Of Contemporary Smartness
issued its annual statement in these six words, “We can’t be certain, of course.”

…and Kyroot said:
If you hide out long enough
a kind of neural Doppler Effect can kick in.

…and Kyroot said:
Near the City financial district
a street corner philosopher proclaimed to the passers-by,
“If out dated ideas rotted and smelled as does over ripe meat,
we’d ALL be holding our noses.”
And a sauntering citizen muttered, “I thought we were.”

…and Kyroot said:
This one world seriously reduced their socializing and party-throwing inasmuch as they were frequently deceased.

…and Kyroot said:
“Two pieces”, said the ole man,
“And that’s with an ‘i-e-” added he (having finished the fifth grade),
“Two pieces of sound, son-oriented advice
is what I have to offer: First: Never buy a real expensive car
from a guy too quick with the
wise cracks,
and second: Never buy a
real expensive car.”

..and Kyroot said:
“Say, let me out of here.”

“I’ve got a better one for you;
Say, who let you in here in the first place?”

…and Kyroot said:
Near the canned vegetable section
a fellow stopped me with a certain visible amount of concern
on his lapel, and asked
if it were not just “slightly possible”
that the first nut to work loose
might just do so as a ploy?

…and Kyroot said:
A duck holding a mortgage is no laughing matter.

…and Kyroot said:
One guy says that he’s made so much progress that he’s written himself a little theme song which goes, “I’m almost inclined,
To bite my own behind…”

…and Kyroot said:
and I have here yet another letter,
from a man who “doesn’t want to be identified.” – Hey sir,
“Gimmie a break.”
“Stand in line,” and “Don’t you wish?”

…and Kyroot said:
The local version of the news
ain’t hardly worth reporting ……(except maybe as a hobby).

…and Kyroot said:
For the official wedding of himself to himself one chap wrote his own vows which said, “We pledge that sagacity,
is not our capacity.”
…..(And both families wept for joy,
and left their clothes at home.)

The assumed metaphorical,
and metaphysical significance
of many things eludes many people.
….. “And for very good reason,”
you might ask.

..and Kyroot said:
At the conclusion of the regular meeting,
during the “answer and question” time,
one chap stood directly up and loudly announced
that his biggest thrill in life was not having any thrills.

…and Kyroot said:
A constituent of our electronic audience writes to ask
that based on certain of my recent comments
are we to conclude that the more civilized would be
the poet who would willfully refrain from calling fucking, fucking?
Or the one who could not do otherwise even should he wish?

and Kyroot said:
One guy had this big ole book entitled,
Strange And Astounding Facts,” which he was afraid to look at.

Contraire to older proverbial wisdom: Promises are not MADE to be broken,
but promises ARE made to be promises – NOT performances.

Open admiration
is one present that not many will say, “Ah, too bad, I already have one.”

When this one chap came across the line that reads,
“None are so blind as those who will not see,” he thought, “Sure there are – those who write such ideas as though an alternative is possible.”

Although no king will admit it,
and no war college teach it,

A man who has any mercy – has problems.”
