And one man thought: “Hey!, if it is ‘real news’ — then
it’s news to me!”
If some institution’s or other person’s viewpoint seems to
hold promise for you — then you are certainly in need of one.
If your appraisal of information is still on a binary basis,
your neural activities remain far too simplistic to be of any
extraordinary use and joy.
People do not ordinarily want to learn — but to be taught.
There are some quite obvious things in life that life quite
obviously doesn’t want mentioned.
Now over to our Conversations Desk: “In the herd, position
is everything.” “Position is nothing.” “That’s why it becomes
everything.” * Civilization is made up of small, ever-increasing
steps of ever-increasement. *
And now for some: “Financial News That The Literal Minded
Can’t Probably Use”: Getting over being a cheap, petty, penny-
pincher can, for some, be a major breakthrough.
Being of “ordinary mind” is nothing to ever be ashamed of
— as long as you’re ordinary. One man responds: “I’d rather
pour paint thinner on a paper cut than to hear about this one more
time!” “So!,” replies an idiot, “This is the thanks I get!”
Only real thinkers know for sure whether a man’s mind can
really make him sick or not.
Advanced, P.S. News Time: A real thinker is a thinker
without conditions or modifiers; thus, a real thinker is just “a
One man says: “I have a theory, you see — and my theory is
that I don’t like Lithuanian Folk Music.”
Being “civilized,” (inter alia), means you need to “work
out,” “work through,” “come to terms with,” and otherwise suffer
additionally over past griefs. Heroic paradigms were silent —
now they must speak — and be less of what they once were.
Now let’s swing over to our Culture Desk for some Art News:
Unfinished works thrive on compliments.
Having a good personality, and great legs, can make up for a
lot — but not for — not thinking.
You might consider the approach of a simple physical life,
and a more complex mental one.
For commonplace minds to stay minimally alert and
functioning, they must believe that something is wrong — either
“out-there” with life and others, or “inside” with them self. To
a real thinker’s mind the only thing flawed going on might be his
inability to keep up the heat and intensity of his own
intellectual stimulation at a constant maximum pitch.
One man offers this suggestion: Never make fun of another
man’s myths — unless he owes you money and is behind in paying.
Definition Time: Drugs-You-Buy: Poor imitation of the
drugs you make.
Another Unscheduled View Of How Things Might Actually Be
Working: “Trying” counts for everything at the ordinary level —
for nothing, at the thinker’s.
…..As they flew overhead, the city hunters shot down some
complex-actions, thus turning them into simple objects.
The Fact Hierarchy: Fact: Men who don’t know what they’re
doing run life. Fact: Life runs life.
A thinker is the complex among the simple.
Dialogue In C Sharp: “Only the torpid are ever surprised at
the torpidness of others.”ù “There’s no such word as
‘torpidness’.” “Hey — don’t be torpid.”
Cowards like to trail the king’s coach, DJ’s love to tell
how “close” they are to the artist they’re about to play, and
reporters……..reporters……well, reporters, teachers,
priests, and other plagiarists really enjoy pretending that they,
somehow, had some thing to do with the ideas they mouth.
Eden was easy — civilization was the tricky part. Eden was
easy, it was already there — from nothing, man had to construct
Hiking Tip If You’re Headed Farther On Up North: Above the
Limbic Line, only the witless are serious.
Now this feature from our department of: Hormones, Neurons,
Sexology & How To Think Better: The human brain, even nominally
and minimally operative, needs more stimulation than a one-eyed
eunuch at a fat man’s Scratch-&-Dent harem sale.
…(So just figure how much more fun a real thinker is in
for…..up to….in for.)
Here is a local “testing device” one man used on himself:
Offer fools advice — then see if they take it!ù (He says he has
quite enough fools himself to give this a good workout.)
You might also ponder the possibility of a thinker’s
connections to others as being simple and direct, while his
mental one with himself, more complex and open-ended.
Amongst the civilized, words do not only carry information,
but also attempt to convey biochemical moods.
Now over to our Definitions Desk again: Morality: A verbal
method of producing sufficient guilt to keep most people from
ever thinking about how little they actually do think.
And one man thought: “I work for the utilities companies.”
A bird that doesn’t believe it can fly — can’t fly. A man
who can’t instantly translate aeronautical news into something
else, entirely personal — will miss most of the best winds.
Some, “Ordinary Intellectual News”: It’s hard to make a
And now, A Myth That’s Never Before Been Told: Some say
that just before you die — if you have a couple of extra seconds
— everybody can suddenly think real good.
In the ordinary realm, usually another person is needed to
dance-with to achieve even a minimal degree of complexity and
satisfaction in one’s life; and within this context, sexual love
seems the highest rung on the ladder.
Local conditions, wearing its doctor’s coat, told one
extremely agitated man: “Suffer a bit more, and call me on
Civilization and the life of its people seems composed
primarily of the physical and material — since that’s not what
its composed of. Appearances can only be “deceiving” to an
ordinary mind; their reflection off a thinker’s neural mirror
reveals their unexpected multiplicity, and point-blank reality.
One man’s latest explanation & defense of his own attitude:
“I am no longer disturbed so much by other people’s stupidity as
I am by the fact that they don’t realize it.”
Ordinary minds find it hard to believe that they’re actually
thinking unless they feel like they’re stepping on someone in the
If you would like to see more —– “I told you my name’s
not Seymour!” —– If you would like to see past the truism of:
“There’s no accounting for taste.”, just consider that there can
be no standardization of tastes without destroying taste.
Even though genes continue to live with you, you can begin
to forget the myths.
Free Choice Time, Examined Once Again: You can either be
alive and think — or, think about the angst of “being alive”.
Ordinary, hungry minds have a pretty dependable, everyday
choice: They can either dine at Denny’s — or at Anti-Denny’s.
Sheep make poor heroes — especially grieving sheep.
All ordinary efforts to “improve yourself” are for the
purpose of keeping you like you are.
And now for our Joke Of The Day: A man who believes he can
somehow affect his own genetic nervous system is obviously a
fool. One who doesn’t try is a more subtle one.
For some, the ordinary work of the mind is far too formal to
be of much recreational and instructive use.
If you shill, you toady. If you’re not intellectually self-
employed, you shill.
A thinker who’ll say what he’s going to do — has said too
From our, “If You’re Interested — And, If It Matters To You”
department: A man who will not consistently settle for what
passes through him as the limits of what thinking can be, can
generally “make himself happier” if he really wants to.
All ordinary thought is a form of cliche.
And in response, one man retorted: “How do you expect me to
‘think-more-than-I-have-to’ — I’m on a fixed income!”
* Routine mentation, redefined. *
There are myths of the stomach, myths of the feet — even
myths of sex, but damn few of the mind. …(Okay, I’ll tell you
how few there are: So few that a real thinker has to make-up his
The more complex your thinking — the more you begin to
agree with life.
It is the strength-of-relationships that keep most people
sane and active. It is the vitality of his own intellect that
keeps a thinker going.
Here is an item from our Neural Adultery desk: One man’s
motto was: “Fidelity to thinking — None to particular
The attempt to put a wild beast in a cage will only succeed
if the beast cooperates.
Men are constructed in such a way as to believe otherwise.
A whole lot of the things that men believe — they just made
Men are constructed in such a fashion as to believe
P.S.: Anyone who understands these last two items, probably
already understands too much.
