Notes by TK

Kyroot to :14. Those knowing fewer facts and held less by facts are less inhibited to move in act-based ways, especially including the physical assault on the fact-based group. Internal application: fact-based thoughts feet superior; act-based thoughts feel stronger than the fact-based. Their difference cannot be reconciled. E.g., “ignorance” = inaction also lacking verbal support: the inability to be fed by act- or fact-based energies. There is a spatial quality to human thought. “Smart alecs” = “Ivory tower” = height (of fact-based world).

There’s this one man who’s developed a set of exercises which, when faithfully done,
benefit no part of the body;
…..(It’s said he’s in line for a
high City appointment.)

and Kyroot said:
The overture consisted of the orchestra playing,
“Words Will Not,
Words Shall Not,
Words Cannot Fail Us Now.”
Then the speaker delivered the horripilating homily,
“Ephemeral connections are better than
no ephemerals at all.”

…and Kyroot said:
A chap hiding behind some boxes says he wants to
call his own attempted neural rebellion, “Looking At Things Weird,”
and his partner up and asked,
“You mean looking at things that are weird, or
looking at things in a weird way?” and the guy replied, “You’ve
damn near got it.”

…and Kyroot said:
The fearful are all related.

After pondering the matter a bit, one of the rebels thought,

But if you leave the motor running.

…and Kyroot said:
One guy’s unyielding principle was, “Have A Back-Up”
(except when he was in other realities and it was, “HAVE No Back-Up”).

…and Kyroot said:
This one kindly ole man,
(I’m not all that sure he was actually kindly,
but his mama asked if I wouldn’t call him that
if I ever used him in a Kyroot, so here goes)
told his kid:
the demands of the Secondary world
can ‘take your breath away,'” and
his son be-thought to his young self,
“As always, dear Dad,
I appreciate the advice,
but methinks it may be a bit late
since I’ve already been suspecting that
the Secondary domain can take your EVERY thing away.”

weird hints regarding the power of silence.

within the confines of its own domain is meaningless. (E.g.: how do you know you’ve had enough to eat until you eat that one more bite too many?)

…and Kyroot said:
The unpublished motto of all cities and secondary sensibilities: “Anyone From Out Of Town Is A Fool.”

can be a sincere form of flattery; a refusal to pay it,
even more so.

…and Kyroot said:
After all of his statements
this one king would always add, “Hey, I should know, I should know.”
And even though he didn’t – he was correct.

…and Kyroot said:
When it rains on City roads everyone hugs the center line.

…..(Jane’s Registry Of Clichés
has been thus far unable to establish with any certainty
what, if anything has been proved.)

that he ultimately could be effected only by chemicals HE produced;
(it’s a bit hazy after this, but
he either became king, god or else
disappeared in that terrible turnip explosion.)
