All ordinary, sane people believe that there is more to life

there is more to them than just their I.
Men dance and parry with words, but due to their low
threshold of boredom and the demands of fashion it must
constantly be called something else.
Stand Back! — Give Way! — Make Room!ù The dumb are about
to talk about themselves again.
Everyone has children — some seen, some not.
Exhortation Revision & Update: Stand back! — Give way! —
Make room! — The dumb are about to preen! …(Yeah-h-h, you’re
right! — It was still more frightening and exhilarating when it
was about them going to talk about themselves.)
How Things Actually Is Around Here: Everybody’s in the
navy; life let’s everybody choose whether they want to be in the
army, navy or air force; everybody’s in the navy.
A free slogan you can have and use if you want to: “When
I’m dumb and dead — bury me. When I’m dumb and still alive —
give me a title or some awards.”
One man looked into his child and said: “If you continue to
allow that kind of close connection between your hormones and
your neurons you’ll never be rid of the past.”
Another Nother Example Of How Words Might Work Behind Your

Now over to our Definitions Desk: Stupidity: Two
dimensional thinking under two dimensional conditions.
Note: I could have said: “Two dimensional thinking under
three dimensional conditions,” but that would have been giving
man undeserved credit, and providing additional, unprofitable

and their own pond, and the other would have to do with infinite
As They Walked, They Talked: “Chemistry is a powerful
agent.”ù “That is true, but not as powerful as man’s mind, which
invented the field of Chemistry.” “Nice observation — but I
still wouldn’t set my brain in a beaker of acid.” (A willow
tree, near where they strolled, was almost certain this had some
Unfaithful Moral, Operative In Some Galaxies: If you can
“get-their-attention” you can make dumb people believe that
almost anything has some “deeper significance.”…..I’m sorry,
strike the word, “dumb”, and just make that “ALL people.”
Suddenly one day — it struck a certain man — and he said
to himself: “If those who most vocally believe in ‘Secret
Knowledge’ of some kind learned that it actually existed — just
across the street! — I doubt that half of them would bother to
walk over there.” …(He later pondered an alternative version
to this wherein it would be that, “Half of them would be afraid
to walk over.”)
One thing about being an ordinary human is that you can
believe anything you want to; another thing is that you’ll only
believe what life makes you.
Then there is this other man who has reportedly thought:
“What if I did struggle real hard for some sort of extraordinary
‘insight’ and it just turned out to show that everything was
quite ordinary!?” (It’s further said that every time he thinks
this he ends up looking tired and yucky.)
Only stupidity can bring a thinker to his knees.
Where Science & Theology Meet: A man with a hunting license
can hang wallpaper throughout the season.
…..Where Science & The Arts Meet: A painting you don’t
understand is dumb, and defies the laws of physics.

on the way home.
Civilization From One View: Men trying their best to believe
that, some day, listening to their neurons instead of their
hormones will, some how, prove more enjoyable.
If you have to ask who’s in charge — at least you know that
you’re not. A man looked down at his child and said: “Wait a
minute! — You’re not about to tell me what you want to be when
you grow up, again — are you!?”
…..One of the perceived benefits of beating-up-on and pushing
other people around is that it can let some believe that at least
they’re in control of somebody. Looking down at his child, one
man said: “Hold it! — Are you about to tell me again what you
want to be when you grow up!?”
Since the news continues to be so uncertain, and since so
many men believe it should be otherwise, let’s go on to the
Weather, the Sports, and other areas wherein it obviously doesn’t
Insider’s Tip Regarding Time: Any truly important change

You can lay with your sex,
You can walk with your guts,
You can talk to your mind, but
You can’t tell it much.
Is not man’s unique relationship to his singular attribute, his
mind — a curious one indeed.
Over in a place where such things can happen, god said to a
man: “Tell me all about yourself.”, and the man replied:
“You’re not god.”
Item: Some People Believe That “Perspective Is Important” —
But They’re Wrong; (to item wit): The king’s dog said: “I may
physically just look like your average dog, but socially — I

Meanwhile: The child of a thinker retorted: “That’s nothing! —
I once looked down my own throat.”
Local reality said to a man: “Tell me about yourself.”, and
ALL men replied.
Without sorrow, disappointment, and heartbreak, most peoples’
lives would be boring beyond belief and toleration. Off one day

fast-food, and junk ideas.
Two people were talking and the first one said: “You ever
notice that almost all the news is about people!?” And the
second man, referring to our news show replied: “Yeah — except
for ‘that one’!” And the first man bounced back: “Yeah, you’re
right — it’s always either too little or too much about moi.”
(And they both laughed nervously.)
Moral: Point-blank-walls ain’t about nobody! — SEE-E-E!?
…(Of course real thinkers know better than this sham.)
Fact: In the city, the idea of “lying” is a necessary
speciousness, but objectively non-existent.
Fact: Only a real thinker can lie!…………..and do
And now from the news — Here Comes An Item: One man
describes his life thusly: “I ain’t got no life.”
As a consolation prize in the competition, local reality
told one of the losers — I mean, one of the, “runner up
winners,” that he could have his choice of gifts: Either:
Premature death, aging, or stupidity. And the man was
momentarily stunned into silence in that he wondered just how
you’d ultimately distinguish between the three!?

One day a man wondered: “Is having a rash and having a
condition the same thing?” — (and something local laughed).
At every moment — somewhere on this planet — someone is
thinking what is possible to BE thought.

If he can finish — a man with a stomach ache will run a
race faster than those who don’t have one……………if he can

A Caution: A person who understood what life was actually
all about around these parts, and who then tried — uninvitedly
— to reveal it to others, would be like an adult who’d go to a
children’s birthday party and explain to them how the donkey on
the wall that they were attempting to pin wasn’t real.
Holding his private glass high, in the manner of a
threatened toast, the man savored the moment and thought: “I

Quote For The Day: “Remember this my boy: Idiots are born!
— but self-made idiots are constructed by oneself.” …(There
is no report of what, if anything, the lad said in response.)
Many quite ordinary men like to say: “I’ve still got
‘plenty’ in reserve!”, which, if they’re forty, amounts to twenty
more years of breaths.
If local conditions told everybody: “Have fits on your own
time.”, then either nobody would have any more fits, or else we’d
be out of time.
The Mystical Quest:
One man —
Looked to his mind,
Then looked to a priest;
Then looked in his pants,
Then took a nap.
One child told the old-man-father within him: “If even aging
— even impending death — can cause you to give up, or slacken,
then you were never any kin of mine.”
If you’re original — but seem to be “paying a price” for
your originality — you’re not yet original enough.
As long as life’s local conditions stay in balance, and as
long as men think they’re not — everything is in balance.
After he’d come to understand the nature of local reality,
this one man moved on to a position of being on speaking terms
with life itself. Then some time after that, he popped back in
