Summary

#1292 – 06/06: 
Notes by TK

Common core to all religion: Life thinking it  all.  The transition from the pantheon to the one-god was the imposition of order.  Life is not adversely affected by ‘improper’ thoughts it has, unlike individual men who are so impacted.  Civilization will fall apart without talk, by seeing the obvious.  Progress is the debate of the obvious, an unnecessary activity vis a vis obvious reality.


The News

The host of the show said: “Now contestants, our Question
Of The Day: Did the mind first: Talk to itself — or, to other
people?” And aspirant number one said: “Is this a trick
question?” …..”Oh, I’m sorry, were you speaking to me?”
“Judges — I want another Quiz Master.” And the judges replied:
“Don’t we all!?”

Why At Street Level It’s Hard To Understand What’s Going On:
An Architectural Essay
Those in the basement believe they support those in the
penthouse, and those in the penthouse believe they sustain those
in the basement. Both are correct — yet both misled; how can
this be!? How can this be!?

…..Those with new vision — (surpassing bifocal) — no longer
see this in merely three D.

Life on every planet begins with a piece of radioactive
material, a bit of which each succeeding creature carries with
them. On certain worlds this becomes known as: “Secret
knowledge”.

Patient’s Advisory
There is no doubt about it — your surgery will be performed in
the morning….and the next….and the next…and the next, until
the operation is complete.

…..P.S.: Complaining will do you no good, but you can anyway.

One mother’s upbringing efforts included these directives:
Don’t hang out with trash, don’t socialize with the past, and
keep your distance from the thoughts of others.

What’s the difference in a “real” mystic and a semi-real
one? ….Well, neither one of them knows exactly where they’re
going at first, but this doesn’t stop a real one from headin’ on
in the right direction.

To the standard collective mind, nothing is of more
importance than the collective mind, while to an individual one
— nothing is of less significance.

Allegorical Political Codicil
Those a part of the normal mass human process, even should they
be vocal proponents of freedom, will nonetheless be lovers of all
forms of collective tyranny.

…..No herd animal actually enjoys freedom, although men are
able to say they would.

How To Save Yourself Some Time
Anyone your own age or younger doesn’t know any more than you do,
and anyone older than you won’t tell you the truth about anything
they do know, so be sure and look for someone who fits neither of
these categories.

***

One guy’s “funny business” card read: The dead are most
eloquent — since they don’t have to speak.

***

The relationship between the “secret knowledge” men so love
to dream of and the readily available sort is the same as between
the obvious & the obvious.

The National & American Leagues Of Local Conditions
The world is divided into two types of people: Those who believe
life said, “The check’s in the mail”, and it never arrives, and
those who (when they receive no check) believe that they must
have misunderstood what life said; and then those few who (when
they have nothing better to do) lay in wait for the postman.
Now — “Play Ball!, Y’all!”

“An Up-To-Date-Kinda Guy”: A Non-Metered Human Interest Item
After hearing the many comments regarding the, “Power of the
mind”, one guy (in an attempt to make himself “feel better”)
began to periodically say to himself: “Why don’t you just go
ahead and — ‘feel better’!?”

Then one day his body spoke up and said: “Why don’t you
address your comments to the proper source!?” And the guy was
completely thrown for a post-modern loop!

…..Okay — Query: If you can’t depend on collective wisdom —
then on what can you rely? Okay — this much should be clear:
Take off “collective wisdom” from your list of possible answers.

When: An Un-Rhymed Scientific Survey
When men don’t know what else to do they’ll get depressed;
When men don’t know what else to do they’ll get frightened;
When men don’t know what else to do they’ll get angry;
When men don’t know what else to do they’ll get drunk,
But then there’s always this one little group of men who, when
they: “Don’t know what to do”, will go out and discover — what
to do.

…..”Well — I say!, Professor Burndheart, that is
unprofessional of them wouldn’t you say!? Why don’t they then
share their findings with the rest of us!?” “I’m not quite sure
how to break this to you, Doctor Winestock, but me thinks they
already have.” “No!?” “Yes, I’m afraid so — and more than
once.” “No!?” (Affirmative: Nod, nod.)

Tryin’: A Poem
Tryin’ to be careful can
Make you be clumsy
Tryin’ to seem hip can
Make you seem square; Tryin’ to look mean can
Make you look wimpy, but
Tryin’ to be stupid will always work.

Life has just as many rotten, counterproductive thoughts as
you do — more, in fact, which accounts for all the rotten,
unproductive acts you see around you.
…But hey!, (Saint Sensitive De La Precious) — Life always
overcomes its.

…..Would you care to look at it from a view less emotionally
based!? When you continually have 6 billion thoughts at a time
— as does life — you can tolerate of number of disruptive ones.
….(Don’t suppose that offers any info that one might use
personally!?)

One day, the mayor of one city proclaimed: “For the young
— Morality!, and for the old — Goat gland injections.” And his
P.R. man nudged him and whispered: “Hey, you’re too late with
all that.”, and his honor fumed and sputtered: “Again!?!! —
Well, hell!, what’s the use of being in ‘illusionary-charge-of-
things’ if this sort of stuff’s gonna keep happnin’!?” And the
aide shrugged and replied: “Why ask me!? I’m just a salaried
employee, far on down the brain stem line. It’s you neurons up
there who’re paid to: Talk-that-talk, fake-that-fake, then
accept the fallout with the rest of us.” And the mayor (even
though momentarily comprehending the situation) still didn’t
like it much.

Why The Nature Of Spirituality Is Difficult To Perceive
From A Pew View
Men originally invented the idea of god so that there’d
apparently be some one who actually cared whether he individually
progressed or not — ….since it was quickly pretty obvious
that he didn’t.

…..(I guess I don’t have to keep using up typing ribbon by
always adding to such items a note regarding the exceptional,
comparable position of a Mystic, and other independent thinkers.)

…..Yeah….well, even so, we still got room to slip in this
little quicky definition: Metagnostic thought: Brain sweat
without the smell.

Conversation Overheard At A Local Body & Etc. Shop
“The human mind is like an eight cylinder engine that in most
people is only hittin’ on three.” “Hittin’ on three!? Hittin’
on three!? Can you spell ‘bicycle’?!”

If life is a hand, and men, fingers — note that the thumb’s
normal awareness will never extend beyond the web.

Another Conversation
“The reason mathematics is so uniformly popular with man is
because of the nonconditional predictability that 2 and 2 will
always equal 4.” “But, oh contraire — mathematics is not all
that well liked by everyday men.” “Well, hey — don’t blame me
for their limited taste and embrace.”

***

Men love to talk about the past because there’s nothing left
to do about but — talk about it.

Okay — then what’s another difference between a real mystic
and a half-ass one? …Well, neither one of them knows exactly
what to do at first, but this doesn’t stop a real one from making
the right efforts.

One Man’s Ode To The Sun
Everyone tells you what’s wrong with man, ’cause everyone knows
what is wrong, but where is he to tell what is right? — Or is it
we simply don’t hear!?

…..(Insert network break, and local promos and commercials)

…..(Now back to regular programming): Yes, there is still
something lacking in man — more maniness.

Fair’s fair: While you stepped away, life took up for you
— seems like you could return the favor.

…..Once you realize that everyone who enters through Gate C

no one actually enters through Gate C, then your understanding of

The Finger Of Politics & Subservience Again Allegorically
Poked In Your Eye
Since local conditions are the supreme “colonial power” — would
you care to consider just what that makes us!?

***

It has already been said: “Until you know about the living,
how can you know about the dead!?”, but carry this further and
ask yourself: “How can you know about nonsense until you know
about you!?”

***

Of specific importance is memory and continuity to the
collective mind, while to an individual thinker, they’re both
just distracting “Bush whacking”.

***

Amidst the routine flow of life’s 6 billion diverse,
ofttimes conflicting, thoughts, the secret knowledge acts as a
stable, constant core around which local progress grows.

Another Useful Tip
How to tell if you’re grown: You dislike the young.

One man’s motto was: “Get to the point!”, and once he
himself became fully appreciative of the prescript, he
disappeared into the silence.

***
Regarding the correct answer to the question of: Which has
the greater power — the mind or the body?, nonthinking
creatures have no preference, and the thinking ones who do, have
the wrong one.

***

Okay, all right — let’s be fair to all concerned: If
people did quit debating the obvious — civilization would fall
apart.

And now our: Big, Super Big, Bonus Question Of The Day
Just how stupid can a man be?

From our: “Some Things A Mystic Won’t Tell You” Files
Existence is even weirder than the weirdest civilian mind has
ever imagined. …..(Don’t tell ’em I told you.)

***

As to the question of what directs and controls life,
ordinary thought’s choices are limited to: God, Nature, Fate,
Government, Conspiracy, or Secret Knowledge. There are however,
several better selections not included on this list.

***

Unbeknownst to the ordinary people around him, one man
engaged in an extraordinary internal judicial process whereby
whenever his mind would plead “unavoidable circumstances” in an
attempt to exculpate itself from some unworthy act-of-thought,
he would give it the briefest of hearing, then pronounce: “Fry
the bastard.”

***

…Well!? — Didn’t anyone hear it!? — The Super Big
Bonus Question IS: Just how stupid can a man be? …Wait a
minute!! — Is it because no one wants to hear it!?

Today’s New Myth
On this one world, men dreamed of a lost mine, wherein would be
found a miraculous ore. One man discovered it, and to assist
those others interested, when he returned, he lied about it.

Although life is pretty simple — it takes a complex
consciousness to realize it.

A true mystic has but one tradition — Keep goin’.

On one world, men dreamed of a lost mine, wherein would be
found a miraculous ore. One man discovered it, and to aid others
who were likewise interested, when he returned — he lied about
it.
That’s right — Keep goin’.
