***

The Heretofore, Un-Verbalized Credo Of Civilized Man
Everything’s broke — Fix it!

***

The simple of mind like symbols to represent things, while
the more sophisticated prefer verbal descriptions of same, and
further on past all of that are the more alert who want their
things plain — just things as things.

***

It is believed that the mystical tradition has hidden
itself in such areas as: religion, philosophy, music, politics,
even the art of war, but why does no one suspect that they in
fact may have hidden themselves in the mystical?

guarantee not.

even read anything that HE’D written.

ass!”, then dropped man in the mix and told him: “Go kick ass,
but — get their names!”

The Place: Planet Earth — The Subject: The Wisdom Of Age
As hormones begin to wear down, neurons will start to say: “Hey,
we’re tired of those guys pushing us around!”

…..’Tis only the old (and synthetic mystics, [who’re worse
than chronologically old]) who’ll say that man should, “Despise
the flesh”.

***

The future is filled with promise, the past, with regret.

***

An ordinary mind is a simple mind — and a simple mind is a
one-way-mind. I know it seems otherwise, but it’s just a one-
way-mind — with a mirror.

…..On one planet (to keep the creatures properly distracted)
life sent a guy to talk to those most likely to ever cause a
disturbance, and had him turn their attention to neural matters
rather than hormonal ones. And see — it worked out real neat,
’cause to them, that certainly seemed like the terminology
regarding progress.

…..(Pst!, and P.S.: No body but the “real-thing mystic” would
dare! — or could bear to seriously consider and think-on this
possibility.)

***

Okay — fair’s fair, and let’s give every dupe his day: A
simple mind can be a happy mind ….just so long as it doesn’t
try to: jump-up-and-down, or, go anywhere. So — there!

***

How Life Works: Technical Subsection D
Just as gasoline powers the entire automobile, from the
mechanical running gear to the electrical system, and everything
in between, so also is man driven by fossil fuels.

Everyone starts out seeing things as things, but after they
begin to speak, the symbols of words become part of the things
they represent, and in some instances actually replace the things

Dar is a familiar sounding spot however, beyond dat.

don’t know what they’re talking about.

The Imperative “Twin S’s” Of Man

How-Things-Are, Compared With (Let Us Say) — How Things Are

As regards, “Thinking the unthinkable”, consider how topsy-
turvy things can apparently get between an ordinary view of
something, and that of a more active mind, when it is put into
words. (For example): With a normal, civilized man, it is

him to slay someone than to “argue” with them — in the full,
transcendental sense.

***

As regards matters of nonphysical health: No one can “make
you sick” unless you let them. Life can make anybody sick, any
time it wants to!

better!?”
