Regardless of what a few of the more severely deranged, on
street corners proclaim: Life does not tell men directly “what
to do” — …well…maybe with some real thinkers, but that’s not
what we’re talking about, now is it.
When a man begins the adventure of trying to be
intellectually original, he believes opposition thereto lies
behind every rock and tree; then when he actually gets somewhere
in the journey, he realizes that his initial suspicions were
correct — correct, but — meaningless.
One of the stealth, protective devices on the trap door to
life’s engine room is that only the “serious” claim to have a key
thereto. And a man says: “You need say nothing further in this
matter regarding the serious.”
“D” for “Dialogue”: “Most talk is a cry for help.” “How
so?” “It’s men saying: ‘Help! — I’m about to whine!'” Thank
you for your attention.
Reminder: Binary energy is polarized energy.
Hormones are consistent — neurons, rebellious — but for a
few, not nearly-y-y rebellious enough, old darling. A man asks:
“Wait up! — if neurons aren’t going to help you in this, then
When it rains, the civilized get wet like everyone else —
they just talk about it.
Two legged — I’m sorry — two sided problems are truly
alive! — alive and walking!…and going nowhere.
One man said to his mind: “Well, hold on there old buddy!
— I’m as sick of it as you are.” And one man’s mind said to
the man: “Well, hold on there old buddy! — I’m as sick of it
as you are.” Routine news is nothing — if not balanced —
balanced, polarized, and meaningless.
In the city — everyone wants to “be an artist” — but, no
one wants to work “over-time.” Only thinkers are happiest when
doing more than they have to. A man looked at his cat and said:
“Can you — dig it!?”
In holding relationships together amongst the ordinary —
sometimes, friction seems to work as well as glue.
Now for a “War Report”: The news from the front doesn’t
look so good, but from the rear — just as it should. Yes, you
may also take this to be a story regarding the apparent, spatial
distinctions between the placement of hormones & neurons in the
And now for the “religiously inclined” in our viewing
audience, this pertinent news item: “Salvation” is always just a
heart-beat-away — death! A man says: “I don’t like it.”
Two guys talking: First guy says: “You can’t prove that
you’re intelligent any more that you can prove that you’re dumb.”
And the second guy looks away and replies: “I’d rather that we
not go into this just now.”
A curious aspect of originality — seen from ordinary eyes
— if they could see it — is that from that vantage point you
can’t really see it and identify it.
Lions will bite and claw one another, but humans will
actually hurt one another.
To be “civilized” is to call a man named Bill “William,” and
to call ordinary men “Men.” Cliche Update: One man’s mind said
to him: “Don’t call me — you never have before!” And a man
fidgets: “Yeah, but what the hell have you done to a cliche if
you — ‘update’ it!” …And consequently you could ask yourself:
“Is this not the nature of the Promenade-Of-Progress!?”
…..”You’re absolutely correct!, Contestant Number Two! — the
name of that song was: ‘Staggering From Pillar To Post — From
Cliche To Cliche.’ù And you can take your prizes now, or return
and play another day.” …(Psst! — just between you & me, that
contestant’s name was “Civilization.”)
An ole sorehead speaks: “It’s always — something! — And
when it’s not ‘always something’ — it’s always nothing! — Rat-

like you are”ù is about as opposite as you can get from generally
accepted “collective wisdom.” End-Of-Aisle-Special: Ever wonder
Definition: Civilization: Just the “right mix” of friction
Without original thought there is nothing but opinions —

The feisty publisher said to god’s literary agent: “Listen,
if the man knew what it was that he was going to say in his book,
he wouldn’t need a damn Preface, now would he!?” For those who
don’t live there, the worlds of Fiction & Non Fiction can truly
prove rough and tumble places.
Many men — (members of the same family, I suspect) — when
they realize they’re not actually “going anywhere” will cry out:
“Make way!”ù Yes, you are free also to take this as “The History
Of Man’s Collective, Intellectual Progress” if you want to.
After man became sufficiently civilized to speak, do you
know what the first two people who ever met first said to one
another? — They both simultaneously cried out: “Let me tell you
what’s been happening to me!”
Another reason cows like to gather in herds, rather than
“going it alone” is that the sound of their collective whining
can be passed off as “something else” in a way not possible for
One father told a son: “Whenever something is truly
original, you can bet your little baby-booties that it’ll also,
in general, be secret.”

ordinary? Advanced Contestant’s Addendum: The alert mind will
recognize all three questions as being in fact, the same one.
How — In City Life — Hormones & Neurons Can Be Distinct —
And Yet Maybe, Not Be:
A man with serious stuff “on his mind,”
Will often have pimples on his behind.
A man ponders: “Is this why those who follow religion find it so
acceptable for their leaders to be anti-sexual!?”
…..Opponents of sex are adversaries of life — and hence, of

Esq.” And asked him how he liked it!

don’t get it!”
An Additional Listing Of Benefits: A man with a bad memory
can enjoy the same thing more than once. And a woman asks:

Some Thinker’s Water cooler News: One city looked at its
people and said: “Have tumors on your own time.” And a few
smiled sweetly back and replied: “But, Old Dear — your time is
our time.” …(If I told you that the metropolis “laughed
little” at this — you’d probably accuse me of understating its
…..And when things would really go awry — this one poor man
would find salads in his hair. “But — Hey!”, thought his
barber, “better that than a tumor.” …But I must ask you: Even
though a “trained professional” made this comment — are we sure
we should properly rely thereon!?
And a viewer raises a question in reference to a story we
covered last time; writes he: “On an earlier broadcast you said
that it was hormones, and not neurons which are homicidal — and
I put it to you: Is there any chance at all — that you have
this backwards?!?!” And I, in return, put it back to you, sir:
“What if I did have it backwards — and what if I do now admit it
— in what way will your understanding of the matter increase,
Original thinkers never “nod along” — or agree with
anybody! — They don’t have to! …It’s not part of their job
A viewer writes to express his disagreement: “Regardless of
what you say — if death is not of special significance — then
why does everyone talk about it so much!?”
…..Nice story, and I kinda hate to mention it — but: Death
is not very original.
When it comes to how the mind ordinarily wants to think:
“Laying-down-on-the-job” is the same thing as having a job.
“C” Is For “Conversation”: “Human relationships always
remind me of the fact that as ships sink, rats cling to one
another.” “Thus, I take it, is your pessimistic, allegorical
take on the nature of life!?” “No-o-o, not quite: Ask me if
it’s my less-than-enthusiastic, metaphorical view of the social
nature of man.” “Okay — is that what it is then?” “No-o-o, not
quite: You see — almost everything in life reminds me of the
rats and sinking ships.” “F” Is For “Finis.”
There are no resolutions — to dichotomous disputations. And
a viewer asks himself: “Why would a cross-eyed man even attempt
to shoot the barrels inside of fishes!?” And now: News From The
Polarized World: A/C current won’t take you anywhere — other
than to A, or C land, “And my dear — how utterly gauche!ù — why
just everybody’s already been there!” One key to the trap door
of life’s engine room is in the form of triquetraized energy.
A “Question”: Since neurons can’t even figure out hormones,
how do they ever expect to figure out themselves!?
The ordinary don’t hold elections! — because no one is in

We have received a warning, sent in care of the station, and
we feel it our obligation to pass it along to you, the viewing
audience (it says): “If you give the news trouble — the news’ll
give you trouble.” And a man ponders: “What are we to make of a
threat from cows!?”
Physiological Evidence of “Civilized”: They bleed from both
ends. And a man asks: “Does this have anything to do with men
being polarized? — Is this in fact why they have two ends from
which to bleed!?…”
…..Life doesn’t like for humans to “make fun of it” — that’s
why they can’t. …(“Bleed from both ends — huh!?…”)
One kid looked down into his soup — then up at the adults
all around him — and thought: “What can be said about men who
believe that the ‘Adventure Of Their Life’ will occur after
death!?” …(And all the little noodles in the bowl shrugged
their little shoulders.)
Declares one man (in some sort of “response” I assume): “If
the gods had a’wanted us to be more original & to think more than
we do now — they’d a’made typing paper larger than 8 1/2 by 11.”
* Case closed! — (By the size of your nose!…if not your
The mc looked at the next card, then asked the contestant:
“What is cows’ — favorite song?” And the man replied: “I Stand
Accused.” And the quizmaster said: “Close! — but no udder-bag;
the correct title of the song is: ‘I Stand Properly Accused.'”
…(“Ahh-h-h,” groaned the studio audience.)
In city-life — same as with this news show — the best
stuff comes after the tape quits rolling. One man says: “I’m
sick of my life being recorded.”

ideas,” they still want them to be…well…pretty ordinary.

father finally said to him: “If you insist on locally-maturing

his pocket knife for a shill slicer, and hacked himself back to
Proverb Update! — (Moving Quickly Now): Behind every
“great man” is a really-y-y, really ordinary one, in disguise.
And one man’s mind began to sing:
Don’t make me laugh,
Don’t make me puke;
Don’t make me try and,
Act real cute.
And the man in turn replied: Whatever in the world, could you
mean!?; have I ever tried to make you think before!? — Huh-h-h!?ù
…(Did we move quick enough?…)

favorite wartime tune: “How You Gonna Keep ‘Em ‘Down-On-The
Farm’ Once The Farm Gets A Good Look At Just What They Are”!?
…..As he was leaving the previous scene, one man looked back
over his shoulder and said: “Ciao.” And it proved impossible to
