Kyroot to :15. The “intellectual stadium”—at majority a person turns in their ticket to enter the stadium to thereafter merely watch others think (operate in a SL/Secondary Level fashion), cheering on the home team (booing the opposition) – i.e., approve “correct thinking” acceptable opinions, facts. TMTYHT (thinking more than you have to) is necessary to move into a neural area where thought can analyze itself—not other’s thoughts about your thinking (ordinary self-analysis).

Ordinary analysis, e.g., psychology, shifts attention toward the “mind”, which is a step forward for civilization, but not for a Real Revolutionist. It is increased control over acts, behavior—but talk-behavior: thought about talk. Yet something is always lacking. The experts must always admit inconclusiveness to their discipline (this is what makes them experts!). Ordinary thought never can analyze itself.

Revolutionary analysis requires a lack of allegiance to any standard or accepted code. A Real Revolutionist must be a “smooth-talking, silky-flying, hot-thinking Goodyear blimp cruising above everybody else’s stadium”.
