Everyone says that they can think for themselves — neat,
huh?!…….and safe, too!
Something is a “serious issue” if the serious say that it
is! …….(How else do you think most of this crap got to be
serious in the first place?!)
Man’s collective intelligence runs off of AC current —
whether you like it or not. And please note — you’re perfectly
free to like it or not — that’s what AC, and choice are all
Early in life, one man adopted an eight word aphorism
regarding how you should treat your fellow man. Later on he
shortened it to two: “Fuck it.”
Hormones have a great memory — and many people think:
“Yeah! — and I wish they’d forget about me!”
The Life Of The Civilized: The world’s largest, longest-
running “dress-up” party.
Anyone who has to ask: “Am I in the herd?” — is.
Trying to talk about life in a non partisan way is probably
one of the hardest things in the world………(in case you were
looking for a new challenge).
To escape the first paradise and progress — men had to dream
the idea of a second one.
Humans can be surprisingly clever and intelligent in certain
areas they have invented, such as technology — areas having the
least to do with specific questions about being human.
A man’s mental relationship to the past is the collective’s
unstated measure of his sanity.
The present intellectual interests of the collective is the
diving board from which overweight cows take their daily plunge.
It only counts individually to become intelligent when
you’re young since all of the collective believe they become so
as they age. Therefore you’ve got to somehow “mature-in-reverse”
— grow-up-backwards — or maybe just abandon calendars
altogether. One way you can always spot collective thought is
that it’s always thinking about hormones. * Thoughts that can
think about thinking are not standard issue on this planet. *
As long as you’re serious, civilized, dense, and one-sided,
you’ll forever dance with the ugly — and enjoy — EV-REE minute
Believe It, Or Sit Down Quick: There are those who don’t
know where they’re going who show the inclination to call out to
others: “Hey everybody — follow me!”
Fairy Tale: Amongst the herd, a cow who knew what was
really going on could just RUIN IT for everybody else!
…..One man got a degree in Philosophy so that his friends
would call him “Doctor” instead of cow.
…..Being laughed at is no fun — if you’re no more intelligent
than those doing the laughing.
The mind of the collective soon tells all individuals to
“mature.” It tells them that there is more to life than getting
laid, and being rebellious. The collective is always “mature.”
There’s no way to gauge real intelligence, except maybe by
silence — and even that doesn’t tell you much.
One man made up the word, “repugnated” to describe the way
he felt, but after having become mildly famous for the word he
says he now no longer feels that way.
Amongst the collective, info without metaphors is too
direct; info with symbolism, too confusing. And if you go ahead
through these two steps and try to turn their attention onward
people will say — “What intha hell are you talking about?!!”
The hormonal infantry fight for power while their cerebral
generals explain that it’s all over principles.
* Yes — The “Two Great ‘P’s'”: Power and Principles.
The one great “P” — there is only one “P”. *
One of the problematic pleasures of independent thinking is
that there’s hardly anyone to enjoy it with you.
Within the herd — many with some bovine talent or extreme
personal problems believe they’re “on the right track”!……..
Ever notice that as old genes die they always tell younger
ones: “Don’t do as I did!” Ever notice that they always wait to
say this until they’re about to die? Ever wonder why?
Note To The Antsy: Any time you hear the silent voice of
collective intelligence saying in your direction: “Wait up! —
there’s no need to be thinking like that.” — press on!
The reason that hormones can’t think is that if they could
then every time they heard men talk about something just “being
somebody’s imagination” they’d laugh so hard they’d hurt
themselves…………(and we can’t have that)!
The herd promotes its own.
…(Remember that next time you try to flag a cab.)
When you’re dumb — I mean, when you’re of the level of the
collective’s intelligence — it is EXTREM-LEE hard not to be
serious. Historical Footnote: One reason men favor the notion
of a god is that it can make being serious a bit more tolerable,
in that they can blame their condition on him.
Through the many mental vicissitudes and philosophical
uncertainties that beset all men’s lives, one man held firm to one
approach that always served him well in such times: He would
simply — yet forcefully say: “I’m armed.”
Firm opinions: Day-old, week-old, month-old, hard bread.
Miscellaneous: One way to tell for sure is to just come
right out and ask a man: “Do you have any talent — or not?!”
Tabloid: He said he was just going for a ride — and he
filled up the back seat with himself — then he apparently drove
directly over a cliff — What can I tell you!
One of the several unaccredited developments of the collective
is, “Self reference.” * Healthy herds run on water, food,
shelter and mirrors. *
Non partisan thinking: The most indefensible activity
possible for a man.
A dead soldier is a happy soldier…….(so is a combatant
wounded in at least both eyes, legs and brains).
The collective intelligence-of-man is greater than that of
any ordinary individual — but not by much! — which is what
makes it so captious and tricky to deal with.
* Using bovine constructed mirrors — all cows can gaze
grinningly therein and coo: “My! — but aren’t you the precious
one!” * And now — as required by law — today’s, “Statement Of
Fact, Re-said, Yet Again”: Life is nothing, if not fair.”ù
….(In case some of you aren’t aware of it: If you do not
repeat this statement at least once a day to yourself, life has
the right — without any advance notice! — to make your thighs
become flabby, and all your CD’s rust!)
There is a way to make your mind even smaller than it
is…..(but no one seems to need it?!?)
It’s hard for the dense to know whether they’re alive or
not, which is why they like to gather in herds.
All of the proverbs, truisms, and words-of-wisdom held dear
by the collective began as good-natured jokes to some individual,
Fine print, split hairs, and powerful modifiers, are all
tools of the civilized; implements to help construct a decorative
screen to hide that godawful point-blank wall.
A man with no allegiances can feel the same about everybody.
Cows find great favor with genetic and institutionalized
fraternity, no matter how crude or regressive. What else have
they?! A man with no automatic allegiances can feel the same
about everybody, & never think of them.
War News: It’s easier to be sane
With a standard issue brain.
When a particular truism of collective thinking ceases to
make sense to men, the neural network will bend men to reshape
and make sense to the truism. The mind’s idea of “recycling” is
but a weak imitation of a self-fueling system’s standard of one
hundred percent efficiency. …(Although this can’t possibly be
so — nevertheless! — fuck it! — there it is.)

The truth of the brain;
Arrives then departs,
Like a hellbent train. *

condo are that the herds forced to live therein are made to
believe that escape therefrom would either be totally
meaningless, or else much more significant than could ever be
possible. * A fish who rode the watery elevators up-and-down,
up-and-down, up-and-down, finally said: “No wonder it’s so hard
to get outta here!” *
WithOUT grinding your ax you’ll soon have no ax to grind.
In the city it is unlikely you can say anything about the
nature of leather without some cow taking offense. * Question
Number Six on the test: “After all — what is being ‘civilized’
other than being able to take justifiable umbrage!” *

how hard it is.
…..Alternate, unauthorized approach: Ask yourself: What
could possibly be easier than gettin’ born and then dyin’?!!
Other than maybe for somebody standing on your foot — all
criticism of life is DUMB! …(And even in my example, you can
push the person off without saying anything or thinking about
Those who can’t see — tend to see god.
When collective intelligence seems momentarily threatened by
real intelligence, it will often respond by solicitously saying
to the individual involved: “Here now! — let me get a boy to
carry those to the car for you.”
* In the grand new world of independent thinking — any one who
offers to “be your friend” — AIN’T, and CAIN’T be “your friend.”
— Ain’t it just GRAND-D-D?! — *
The continual rumble and roar of the herd’s hoofs as it
forever stays on the move sends out the constant, coded message:
“Why would you WANT to wander away?!”
Individuals frighten the collective — but not near as much
as the collective frightens the individual! …(“Frighten” is
not really the proper word here — especially in the second
instance — but, you know what I mean.)

seriously — things become a lot clearer — and easier.

is constantly thinking thereof has no independence of mind.

more than a skunk must constantly stink to affirm its identity.
One guy continually reminded himself: “A man with amnesia
is your friend.”
To be independent minded you must have either a higher or
lower threshold-of-boredom than the collective. …(Either that
— or something else equally as nifty.)

criticism in camouflage.

Trouble is — it’s TOO plain.
The simple speak of hormones and sports — the sophisticated
of culture and politics — and every day at the fair — Monday
through Sunday — the “cattle-go-round” goes round and a’round
Everybody likes to talk! — but the independent minded like
to talk independently.
The longer a cow stays in the herd the closer his eyes come
together. Death: Monocular vision.
There’s only one thing that’s not funny to an individual,
and that’s the loss of his individuality. And there you are
again — another great thing about being part of the collective!
— You never have anything TO lose!
Under routine conditions man’s mind forever underestimates
its entanglement with its environment, but when winds are strong

to himself: “Keep nothing on hand.”
