Notes by TK

Kyroot. to :12. There is almost no future for purely act-based man. Consider: if there is life after death, might it be a form of movement from the act-based world to the fact-based? I.e., transcendence/survival = movement from one dimension to another. Wouldn’t it require some fact-based energy worthy of surviving? All man’s facts are not worthy of survival since they have no future—are unpredictable, uncertain, unstable and incomplete. Were they otherwise they would be dead (i.e., recur unchanged like primary world acts of sex, shelter and sustenance).

Survival goes on in the neural system at all times on the basis of the unstated premise: “does my present thinking have a future?” This is the basis of all attempts at self-improvement. Genetic survival of Life thru man comes via the fact-based world. Only non-focused, omnivorous Real Revolutionist facts could be worthy of a future.

As they were reflectively wiping the elk droppings from their shoes
the ole man finally broke the philosophical silence by saying,
“My boy, cool out…,” and his son quickly attempted correction
by injecting, “No, Pop, you mean ‘chill out’.”
“No, dear sonny boy, I meant to say cool
since I was trying to move you gradually to my ultimate
attention-grabber – but enough of this inter-family digression –
what I wanted to tell you was to – ease-up, cool-out, and
tramp through the woods for the beauty of the day;
no need to worry about the ‘past catching up with you’
as long as you’re carrying it around in your back pocket.”
(And the lad suddenly comprehended what it was he’d
been uncomfortably sitting on for the last three months.)

(who says he picks up our show courtesy of the inter-play between his bridgework and the steel plate in his mother’s head), says that the program has proved to be a two level experience; Before listening to me he says he’d never even heard of a “Neural Revolutionist,”
and that now, after hearing me speak on the matter, he doesn’t know what one is.

as the sun and their I.Q.’s were going down,
the kid said,
“Pops, somehow it just don’t seem right
to be thinkin’ about things
other people’s already thought about.”
(And since this was their last Kyroot of the day,
the ale man let it pass without comment.)
