Notes by TK

Note the esteem people hold act-based Red Circuit-types who pursue self-improvement. Others famous are so only for their past deeds. Inside: a neural Red Circuit-type can constantly plan self-improvement, and elicit interest/attention of the partner to the extent to survive another day. Everybody has zenith experiences or the opportunity for them (same thing)—but thereafter are forever washed up (regardless of fame achieved).

Self-image (“me”) = zenith achievement, a two-minute mile that will never be bested or recaptured despite all protestations to the contrary. There is no way for intellect to better its own improvement, yet it harbors the illusion that it can via more education, effort etc. You can’t teach an old dog new tricks…but you can teach dogdom some. Kyroot from 0:45 to end.

In the City
There’s always a
Three hundred dollar fine for Two hundred dollar offenses.
…and Kyroot said:
I overheard one somewhat,
Three dimensionally inclined fellow
Say that he found people’s
Enthusiastic involvement with
Faddish attempts to be acceptable
Not unlike men passionately clamoring
For the last berths on the Titanic,
Knowing it would only sink once.
…and Kyroot said:
with any boundaries is not variety.
…and Kyroot said:
During the later hours
Of the company party
A man from bookkeeping stood and announced,
“I will now make some weird, squeaky noises
With parts of my body normally unused.”, and
His son thought, “Gads that opens up some frightening possibilities’:

Or how much you spend on camouflage,

In the grip of confessional, mind you.)
If not revelatory spirit,
The ole man told the kid,
“Sometimes I think the onliest
Reason I keep you around is so’s
I’ll have someone to feel superior to.”,
And the kid said,
“Yeah, I know.”,
And suddenly – just for an instant,
The ole man didn’t feel all that superior…
…and Kyroot said:
Knowledge will never get the job done; That is;
No word can ever finish the sentence.
…and Kyroot said:
Anyone who offers blanket assurance
That you will be “happy”
If you will but pursue
This-or-that course of action or thought,
At least,
Has an interesting concept of “happy”.
…and Kyroot said:
Criticism is the expiration to Creativity’s inspiration.
…and Kyroot said
Another verse in that epic, mortal song,
“Oh, The Laborious, Never-Ending, Modifier-Laden Path We Tread Toward Refinement If Not Perfection.”,(and it goeth like this-eth);
“If you’re gonna wrestle get a partner and be a team;
If you’re gonna wrestle as a tag-team, get masks;
If you’re gonna wrestle as a masked tag-team, use an assumed name; If you’re gonna wrestle as a masked tag-team under assumed names, get a manager;
If you’re gonna wrestle under assumed names as a masked tag-team with a manager – GET REAL:”
(Additional verses may be
ordered directly from your local florist, or junk yard.)
…and Kyroot said:
If they insist that you,
“Name your drug of choice”,
Stall as long as possible;
You can’t ever tell what might turn up later.
…and Kyroot said: “Only those who need mercy want mercy.”
Let us give mortal justice
its proper due on such an auspicious day,
and every man-jack of us
lay down our swabs,
hitch up our breeches,
face the fiery flag and repeat together –

One fellow hereby describes
Secondary treatments for
Secondary ills as,
“After being set afire,
Leaping from a tall building to escape the flames.”

Upon visiting a “house of worship”
For the first time,
Quickly experienced his own moment of epiphany When he leaped to his feet shouting, “Vaudeville LIVES:”

A friend will hold your coat, a lover will hold your hand,
but who will hold your attention?
…and Kyroot said:
At the closing ceremonies of the
Four day, “Ole Soreheads & Philosophers’ Convention”,
One apparently interesting fellow offered
These final words,
“I believe I can speak for us all in saying
That no one speaks for us all.”
(But then again,
Four days is not much time In which to squeeze Ninety-six hours.)
…and Kyroot said
FYI: The true, secret, mystical, sacred, metaphysical name of “justice” Begins with “S”.
… and Kyroot said:
This one ole sore head told the kid,
“The main thing in life is to
Always have something to be pissed about.”
And the lad thought,
“So long’s you’re alive – no problem.”
…and Kyroot said
A better response to any human question is almost ANY response not already known.
..and Kyroot said:
After a full life of
Study, meditation and
Short day trips,
One terrestrial thinker has
Bundled his collective wisdom into
The conclusion that,
“Man’s sacred duty,
And highest calling in this mortal life
Is to ‘give advice’.”
…and Kyroot said:
Then suddenly,
then finally,
an otherwise remarkably unfathomable chieftain roared,
“Where are we? – Where can we go?,
without a foe.”
