Notes by TK

Kyroot to :18. Speech as an “enhancer” (e.g., a reverb unit for a stereo setup) of basic signal energy in the production of goods in service activities. Servicing activities must produce goods ultimately or else there is no certainty that the servicing process has any validity whatsoever. Note how defensive all service entities are.

“Collective wisdom = product of speech process (even when it amounts to “we don’t have the final answer yet” or “how little we really know”). “I” = product of mind.


The News

Having an advantage won’t do you any good if it doesn’t do you any good.

***

In the civilized presence of speech, the present doesn’t measure up to mare’s sweat. (If up-to-date, evolved man was meant to live contemporaneously, he’d need no words.)

***

In attempting to elucidate on the curious, uncertain balance constant in his creation, this one reality admitted he’d never fully grasped the distinction between ambiguous and ambidextrous.

***

To the more neurally complex, ordinary thinking is not unlike listening to radio coverage of a parade of perfumers.

***

‘Tis said that everyone has a squirrel somewhere in the universe that looks just like them.

***

Another round of appreciation for relative equity…? …!:
While kidneys will never know the joys of thought, privates have pleasures neural generals only dream of.

***

In a vigorous attempt to “come to grips” with things, this one guy broke the pliers-of-his-mind.

***

(Progress is alive, well, and vocal): One chap says he’s not so much concerned with the barbarians at the gate as he is over the declining quality of modern gates.

***

The most readable history of history will never be written.

***

“If the umbrella is large enough, its collapse can go unnoticed.” After having said this, the ole man added, “But son, when I say ‘large,’ I mean L-A-R-G-E!”

***

The question seemed to be: “What would civilization be without gossip, frustration and intrigue?” but was really: “What is paradise to the homeless but where thought is plain and direct?!”

***

Speech: the only primal activity that can be suicidal.

***

Once a group of men, operating on the belief that “what is impossible for one may be accomplished by many,” constructed a paradigm of irrelevancy completely unique to their time and place.

***

Just sort of as a little tease, this one reality used to tell its creatures, “Read my lips,” when it knew darn well it didn’t have any.

***

This one ole sorehead told his equally ornery offspring, “Go ahead and hate people different than you — that’s what they’re here for.”

***

An accidental find can be almost as good as an accidental loss.

***

To help keep their cat off balance, this one land let Wednesdays sometimes fall on a different day of the week.

***

When things weren’t going particularly well in the immediate vicinity of his own neighborhood head, this one guy would turn on himself and say, “Hey man — Get outa my face!”

***

There are as many examples of the manifold view as there are things to look at.

***

One way to show you’re serious is to dress like those already serious in your field. …(Sad to say, but it worketh every timeth. …[Of course it remains cheaper to pretend than to buy a new wardrobe.])

***

Civilizations may be powered by thoughts, but not the converse.

***

The king’s Sub Rosa Minister Of Individual Thought told him during a private session, “To truly think of new ideas, you have to almost knee some old ones in the balls.”

***

Whenever he had something else to say on the subject, this one god would first say, “I don’t have anything else to say on the subject.”

***

A viewer writes, “Thanks to you, before I started watching your show, I thought about myself more than anything else, but now thanks to you.”

***

A visitor to earth, after attending his first religious meeting, agreed that it was a new experience, and added that he found the most unusual aspect of it to be that it was “one long commercial,” yet no one seemed to care.

***

“Kid,” said the ole man, “whenever things try to look bad and want to be discouraging, just remind them — and yourself — of this simple fact: Squirrels don’t ride the bus.”

***

According to one source: Not having time to think about what you already know is the “human condition.”

***

The world of man could not be sustained without the fierce pride of patriotism, and yet none with a fixed address can assist the requisite revolutionary struggle on which it is all covertly based. (It is those physically on the front lines who proclaim, “We’re on the front lines,” and who cannot be told that their current battle was already decided yesterday. …[So long as you believe you can return home, you’ll never fight your own necessary foe.])

***

One city had rats in their sewer; they had no sewer.

***

To subversive eyes it’s almost as though life prints the good news in fine print, in the footnotes, even in invisible ink. (This ain’t really so; the good, useful stuff is actually in the headlines, but due to its large, blatant conspicuousness, it’s damn near impossible to read.)

***

Laying down his guitar, he said, “When your hormones go — what’s there left to sing about.”

***

To whatever serious speculations its creatures would make, this one reality would respond, “It’s possible.” (I trust that by now none of you will “knowingly nod” as though this had some insightful pertinence.)

***

Where to find thoughts that will chew off their own foot if trapped?

***

Another ole man said to his kid, “If you can ever get over being so tight-assed about everybody else’s stupidity, you can get down and really enjoy your own.”

***

All true revolutionist ideas make little sense at the time, and none down the road; which explains why some of them later become quite well-known and respected. (And of course, totally misunderstood.)

***

Statistical “proofs” regarding human affairs are no proof at all (and damn little even in the way of evidence).

***

If you get tired you can always go back to say that if man was destined to find the answer, he (that is — you) could more readily do so. …(Sleep, drugs, anger and sex are not the only ways to take a break…not any more, they’re not.)

***

One man keeps a live bomb in his bed; he says he does so to be sure that even while asleep, he stays “edgy.”

***

Few kings want to assist in plotting their overthrow, and the cute thing is that it’s not for the reason you’d imagine.

***

An up-to-date, electronic-age composer was heard to say, “In today’s world, if you can manipulate information, you can make music,” and his cat, laying on a keyboard, said, “I always thought with humans that if you could manipulate info, you might could make sense.” …(The maestro seemed not amused.)

***

There are always gods producing creatures for the primary purpose of having them comment on their creator’s handiwork; such realities, and their focal point, are in the rear ranks of progress, and but minimally extant.

***

Speech produces the presence of mortal time.

***

The ordinary (that is, those of ordinary mind) insist that it is most difficult to press on without a hero, and you should respect that sentiment, inasmuch as it is part of the stability against which we secretly struggle. …(The extraordinary fairness of the subversive’s position is that neither mirrors nor photographs are acceptable.)

***

If you accept the serious questions and concerns of mankind as your own, you may as well go ahead and dress for dinner and join them.

***

You might now care to note that there are no finite realities, only limited concepts thereof; thus are human thoughts all relative, as is the comparable nature of things in a finite existence.

***

One man used to tell himself, “Hey, stand still,” to which he’d reply, “Ah, stuff it!” (Some of this world’s greatest conversations never take place until you make them up.)

***

A secretly conceived calendar in one Land O’Myths proposes that one day a year, all the squirrels disappear, and that all men suspect the same idea.

***

Those who curse the din of Babel deny their own ancestory. (It is only over in Do Dah Land — [a foolish place where I’m sure none of you want to live] — that steam engines continue to ridicule gas ones.)

***

As long as you can shift the blame, there is no blame. (In the subversive’s university this is taught in Physics, not in Psychology, or some other soft science.)

***

One serious, well respected, and quite well-to-do gentleman said that as far as he personally was concerned — “Life had gone too far,” (and upon hearing of this, Life’s day was just totally ruined.) …(There is at least one land which has a story that says that such stories as this one are misleading, and that life does in some instances take specific notice of what one individual man wants of it; [the main problem here is that they can only identify such men after the fact, which leaves such imagined figures contemporaneously moot].)

***

One bundle thought, “Too many words are too similar — like this and this and that and that.”

***

While “collective wisdom” is the cornerstone of all civilizations, to a neural subversive it is the prototypical oxymoron.

***

Among the many weighty questions he initially undertook was this: “Must that which is important always be serious?” (He later decided that this one alone was sufficient.)

***

If new intelligence conceived of a sin, it would have to be something to do with “looking back.” …(…and for no apparent reason, Kyroot added: Even under the best of ordinary circumstances, “stopping to catch your breath” can prove fatal.)

***

Slight changes that aren’t frightening don’t even deserve the name.

***

One guy’s motto was: “If you don’t have anything to say, don’t say anything.” (He was laughed out of twenty-four different cities.)

***

To be direct, you’ve got to be homeless.

***

Whenever he really wanted his little creatures to do something specific, this one reality would exhort them, “Come on — do it for yourselves!”

***

In the sport of the intellect, a team player is forever captive of the score.

***

At the professional level, a neat thing about being a neural revolutionist is that no one can teach you how to do it.

***

The cultivation of his neural fields was based on the technique of slash & burn.

***

Planes run on time; buses, a day late; revolutionists — yesterday.
