Notes by TK

Kyroot to :25. The earth uses good vs. evil like republican and democratic parties for crowd control.

Everybody suspects what is going on; the Secondary Level World is for the purpose of keeping it no more than that. 

If everything went as fast at the local level as at the universal, there could be no Neural Revolutionist. 

Attempts to be a hermit are attempts to be a fish-out-of-water.

The Secondary Level World trying to overcome the Primary Level World is like water trying to overcome fish. 

The Neural Revolutionist as refined idiocy.

Audio-only: comments on fear/fright: if any ordinary person has an experience that makes you fearful, there is nothing more to think about. This is not fatalism; it is supreme intellectual directness.


The News

When it comes to thinking — men overlook what life wants them to overlook.

***

Believing that your particular life is trickier than most people’s is one of life’s great tricks.

***

Secondary reality keeps track by giving man memory.

***

The Eastern Time Zone moves so quickly that Rocky Mountain believes things are coming apart.

***

Without seriousness, or sadness, or at least some melancholy, most people have no reason to live. …(“Hey!”, said a man, “Does that give you the blues or what!?”)

***

Seeing that he TOO had showed up for his own mental party, he sighed: “Well, I can’t really complain. If I’d REALLY wanted to have any fun I wouldn’t ‘ave come here in the first place.”

***

Without the belief in a struggle — no one would struggle.

***

…and Kyroot noted: One man’s mind looked in the mirror and said: “No doubt about it! — we all start out overweight.”

***

…and Kyroot noted: If ordinary people are not being told exactly what to do, they don’t believe they’re being told anything. …then Kyroot gave the advanced version: If ordinary minds aren’t being told exactly what to think, they don’t believe they’re being told anything of value.

***

…and Kyroot noted: EVERYbody suspects what’s going on.

One old sorehead said: “It seems to moi that degrees and academic fame are just simplistic validations of the fact that you don’t HAVE to think any more.” …(Upon hearing this one young girl thought: “Upon my word, what then does death ratify?!” …[And not real long after that episode someone wrote in to our show: “Congratulations, young Kyrootians — well done. For some time now have I searched for a televised program that would forthrightly use the word ‘ratify’ AND join together the concepts of stupidity and death. Congratulations, and ‘well-done’ again…..Sincerely Yours.”])

***

…And another viewer writes: “Dear Kyroot: Is it possible you could go just one show without mentioning the dead?!” Dear Sir: Yes, if they would quit watching.

***

Once the civilized gods realized what hormones were up to, they decided to become the, “Gods Of Civilization.”

…..then Kyroot offered this Pop Question for the class: Under what conditions can an addendum, an afterthought, an explanation — BE an excuse?

…..Bullets don’t apologize — PEOPLE do!

***

At musing-time, (which for him was all the time), this one man’s grey cells had this thought: “A revolutionist is just someone who doesn’t want to be at the end of the present intellectual food chain.”

***

Seriousness is like a jell that gums up brain passages.

***

Several times a week this one man would call himself up on the phone and in a pseudo, mechanically-sounding, recorded-type voice explain, “Congratulations! Sir or Madam — You have won a FREE PRIZE!” …(As soon as this was read, one man’s mind told him, “Say! — don’t you get any ideas from this, things are bad enough around here as it is!”)

***

Another reality visiting this universe noted: “It’s surprising the number of people who’ll whip out their I.D. if you walk in a room and say, ‘Okay, stupid!'”

From our viewing audience, this note: “I don’t believe there is a Kyroot!!” Congratulations! Sir or Madam: You have won a free prize.

***

While standing at the edge of the dance floor, gazing up toward the deserted balconies, one man thought, “Curious — there’s never been a Holy Book written by a man alive.”

…..and Kyroot noted: In the city, the creative seem most so when they’re dead.

***

One man’s new hobby is that he’s going to read every single word in his unabridged dictionary and have at least “one thought” about each of them. …(He also says that if he lives long enough to complete this, he wants then to have at least one thought regarding each of his thoughts. …[And the mails bring this letter to the Advice Doctor: “Dear Doctor: If I knew, physiologically speaking, how my brain worked would I be any better off?” Dear Sir: Probably not — No, strike that, Miss Bolanski, make my reply read, “I don’t know sir, what do YOU think?”])

***

The speaker in the park declared: “EVERYone has their own talent and is faithful to their societal duty.” And a chap in the crowd called back, “Even the Philistines?” — “ESPECIALLY the Philistines!”

…..and Kyroot footnoted the above: Thus it is that no matter your taste in painting, looking back over your shoulder, a Rembrandt always seems preferable to a Pollack.

…..then Kyroot “footnoted himself”: If Mozart came back to life today he would not compose in the Mozartian style.

…..and a correspondent writes: “Once you understand what history IS, you don’t HAVE to make a hash of it.” …(How true, “good correspondent”: Human institutions and collective thought need no help from individual men — quite the contrary! — [the “other way around” might I say].) …And a revolutionist overhearing all of this thought: “I said I was getting-out-of-here, and now I mean it more than ever!”

***

…and Kyroot noted: If things went as fast locally as they do universally there could be no neural revolution.

***

One man says there’s only one thing left in life that frightens him: The possibility that people who act seriously actually ARE!

***

One spring day the Three Different Brothers were talking and the first one said: “My pleasure comes from others, my displeasure too.” And the second one said: “My displeasure comes from others, my pleasure from myself.” They both then looked at brother three who said, “You guys are nuts! You KNOW that?!” But they did not! For they are but two of the Three Different Brothers.

***

If all you know is what you can remember you don’t know enough to be a revolutionist.

***

Every morning when he would first look into his intellectual mirror, this one guy would say, “Some men have it, and some don’t.” Then later while shaving he would often add: “God! I wish I was some men or the other!” …(As that wise old philosopher from Galaxy E-23 would say: “The simpleton-mind, given a choice, will always take one. …[Good-by, thank you, come again, and close the door behind you.”])

***

Then there was this god over in one reality that whenever he was confronted by whines, complaints, or requests for help from the local creatures would have to sometimes bite his tongue to keep from saying, “Hey, get original.”

***

A hermit: A fish out of water. …(attempted, but not.)

…..And Kyroot served up another slice of dialogue: First guy: “It’s hard to live alone if you’re ordinary.” Second guy: “Yeah, but on the other hand, if you’re ordinary it’s hard to live with yourself too.” …(One reality told an apprentice: “This ‘Room-Mate-Finder’ service is not what you think it is.”)

…..Those who don’t understand the game of mental-self-protection-and-growth just LOVE-E-E the idea of monasteries and “time outs.”

***

Someone from our audience asks: “Regarding something mentioned on your last show wherein a man said that if the sex act were like the ‘little death,’ then he thought that romantic love based on sex would be the ‘little disappointment,’ but if so, then what would stupidity be?”

***

Near Borderland, one man’s latest theory is: “The salubrious aspect of being ‘pleased with SMALL things’ is that it will save you from being happy over large ones.” …(Injects a neighbor: “I will NOT be in mid-flight before my time.”
…[The relationship of man and good wine is such that the latter cannot consume the former at the same dear expense as the other way around.])

***

The secondary world is slipping up on the primary in the same way water threatens to drown a fish. …(One man who heretofore had spent thirty years not having any original thoughts asks: “Is it now too late to stop all over again?” — Sir, if you’re getting your money’s worth — YES.)

***

City occupational update: If you truly believe that things are getting worse, you can become a priest. If you believe they’re already bad enough, and you don’t want to work on holidays, you can become a politician. If you believe it when all the others say how bad things are, and you want to work sitting down, you can become a TV anchorperson. …(O-kay!
…If you’re a would-be rebel maybe you should just take a might-be “going out of business” position until the mother ship gets here… I’m not positive, but, maybe.)

***

A person asks: “As regards this revolution-thing’s ideas about the uselessness of being serious, I’ve now got it whittled down to just me — now what?” Press on, my child, press on, press on.

***

A man on the street corner was attempting to address the passing crowd with these words: “For any of you poor souls who actually believe that man is civilized, and even getting more so, just consider that this very day — even as we speak — throughout the world there are more wars taking place than there are poetry readings.” And one passerby thought, “Picking poetry readings was a bad example in my case, ’cause to tell you the truth, I’d prefer the wars anyway.”

***

“Hey!” said the guy, “I’m back — remember me? I’m the guy who’s not impressed with what anyone else has said, more than once.”

…..and Kyroot adds his reminder: Without men being susceptible to what has gone before, there IS no civilization; without the ability to turn therefrom, the revolution is but a dream.

***

Whenever a revolutionist believes that something is a contest between him and some other human, (particularly in a secondary sense), he is already the loser. …(‘Particularly’ — Hell! You know full well by now that that’s ALL we’re talking about.)

***

One rebellious ole guy would never admit he was depressed, or disappointed; he’d just say to himself, “I have a temporary hormonal imbalance.” …(You could say that it’s not very original, and you could say it’s not all that odd, but what you can’t say is that YOU can remember to do it.)

***

Whenever the local creatures would do something that wasn’t immediately understandable, this one reality’s buddies would try to get him to criticize them, but he’d always resist, and say: “No-o-o, it’s proof of something.”

***

In this one kingdom those who actually controlled things allowed the people to periodically vote for candidates from two different political parties to apparently select who would rule them, but both parties and all of their candidates were, in truth, secret minions of the real, unrecognized powers that be. This all went so well that the planet itself took note, and therefrom derived its own method of crowd-control by introducing an even larger illusion of “opposing forces” via the concept of good-&-evil.

***

Once a rebel has become a real revolutionist, he is like a man with an indelible bull’s-eye painted on the inside of his eyelids.

***

Another guy’s latest notion is that life created the ultra-violet area of the electromagnetic spectrum just to make US “feel bad.”

***

And this communique from someone who has been catching these programs: “If proverbs and ancient wisdom are irrelevant, then why do so many ordinary people believe otherwise?” You can’t beat it! — Another question that “answers itself.”

***

As he pushed him out the door, one ole man told the kid: “Go on then, but remember: If you’re going to be serious — always defend your mind and its ideas.” …(This type of advice is what is technically known as, “Unnecessary.”)

***

As he leaped to his life, from high atop City Hall, one man exclaimed on his way up: “As dogs have fleas — I have ideas.”
…(Science and civilization are the art of scratching.)

***

More, “Conversations With The Advice Doctor”: “Dear Doctor: Do you have to be educated to be a revolutionist?” Hell no! “Do you have to be sophisticated?” Hell no! “Do you have to be talented?” No. “Do you have to be intelligent?” Well… (I believe you’re about to push this TOO far.)

***

One king declared: “No man with serious questions regarding the sacred seriousness of life will ever marry my daughter — unless he has several million pounds in ready cash or CD’s.”

***

And from the vast cable network, and from our vast viewing audience, comes this vast letter: “Dear Kyroot-Said Show: Although I feel sure you’re using the term symbolically I must admit that I am still somewhat uneasy over your constant reference to ‘tumors’ — specifically ‘brain tumors.’ I say this from no position of personal self-interest since I do not have one, but it is not totally unthinkable that some day in the future I might.” Signed: “One Who Believes You Could Have More Concern For Your Audience.”

***

When one guy realized he had viewers to his own tv show he told them all to “call in,” then put ’em all “on hold.” …(And one of our viewers writes: “I believe things would go much better if you would use more modifiers so as to give a more distinct sense of where and how your comments fall in time. E.g.,” [he continues], “The simple insertion of the word, ‘finally’, before, ‘realized’, in the sentence above would personally have added a great deal to me. Perhaps I am alone in this regard — perhaps not. Yours, A Viewer.”)

***

One man says: “If my blood didn’t RUSH directly to my brain — with all that stuff — maybe I’d have some control.” …(And the crowd, growing more excited than ever, began in unison to shout back, “May-BE — May-Be!” [and like that].)

***

One Saturday afternoon, after a number of wine coolers, the southern hemisphere of this one world up and said to some other sippers: “That ‘serious’ and ‘stupid’ start with the SAME-E-E letter is no mere accident, my friends.”

…..and a viewer inquires: “Well, if the revolution is not serious — then what IS it?!” — Hey! ole dude, you gettin’ close.

***

Beyond any religion’s concept, one man defines god as, “Someone who can’t be tortured.” (My guess is there’re rebels somewhere who’ll want this for themselves.)

***

…and Kyroot defined: A revolutionist: Refined idiocy.

***

Then for additional, seditious clarification Kyroot noted: Besides what the ordinary refer to as “being serious,” there is what we might call a more “complex” version; the difference being that in the latter instance it is done because one wants it done, NOT because it must be.

***

Over in a small, semi-discrete segment of this one reality, whenever the local, prevailing triaxial force would, under threat of punishment, direct the creatures to do something they didn’t want to do, they would send out one of their own to represent them who would, sans any particular emotion, shrug and say to the force, “Do what you think’s right.”
