Notes by TK

[diagram of brain] There is a ‘mystical area’ in the human brain. It is the genetic future & all men are sensitive to it: respond to the spur/urge of it to evolve. However, philistine activities are equally part and complement to the whole, and the Mystic of necessity feels favored or superior toward the philistine. What if the philistine drive is the true vanguard of Life’s growth and not the mystical, which is elitist?


The News

94067- 1
THE LEADER OF THE EXPEDITIONARY PARTY TO EARTH SENT WORD BACK TO HOME BASE: “THE ONLY PROOF THAT SEEMS OF INTEREST TO THESE CREATURES IS THAT WHICH COMES IN THE FORM OF PERSONAL ANCEDOTES.”,
AND HOME BASE REPLIED: “No!?”,
“YES, AND EVEN THEN IT IS ONLY OF MINIMAL USE.”,
AND HOME BASE ASKED: “WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY, ‘MINIMAL’?”,
“NONE.”, HE REPLIED.

THE SPEAKER’S ANNOUNCED TOPIC WAS:
“SEXUAL ATTRACTIVENESS & THE INTELLECTUAL HUNGER”, ABOUTWHICH HE HAD THIS TO SAY:
“HORMONES ARE TO LOOKS AS HORMONES ARE TO NEURONS.
…AND WHILE THIS MAY IMMEDIATELY SOUND CONFUSING TO THE UGLY AND THE STUPID, IT’S NOT ACTUALLY AS BAD AS FIRST SEEMS….MUCH LIKE MANY OF US ON BOTH LEVELS.”

THE NORMALLY, “UN-ACCREDITED” JUSTICE OF LIFE
IT COSTS NO MORE TO BE A BULLY THAN A WIMP,
No MORE TO BE SELF-CONSCIOUS THAN VAIN-GLORIOUS, DAMN LITTLE MORE TO BE DEAD THAN ALIVE -SO LET’S HEAR OUT THERE FOR: FISCAL EFFICIENCY!
AND A KID KICKED HIS BROTHER AND SAID:
“SEE, I TOLD YOU NOT TO WORRY ABOUT STUFF.”‘
AND LIFE KICKED THE KID AND SAID: “MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.”
BOTTOM LINE: IF LIFE WANTED MEN TO, “GET TO THE POINT”
IT WOULD NOT HAVE PROVIDED THEM WITH MODIFIERS.

ORDINARY MEN ACCEPT THAT THEY “RUN OFF THEIR STOMACH”,
WHILE THE MORE SOPHISTICATED BELIEVE THEY’RE POWERED BY THEIR HEAD.
IT’S HARD TO SAY JUST WHAT THE HELL A MYSTIC THINKS ABOUT ALL THIS.
…WELL, OF COURSE IT’S NOT!
BUT I JUST DIDN’T WANT TO GIVE YOU A STOMACH OR HEAD ACHE.

SCENE: A SPEAKER AND THE SPOKEN-TO
“ALL HERD ANIMALS NEED RULES TO LIVE BY,”
“DOES THAT INCLUDE SHEEP, AND WOLVES AND MAN?”
“AND NEXT TIME I’LL BE TELLING WHAT TYPES OF ENTERTAINMENT SUCH CREATURES REQUIRE.”
“WILL THAT INCLUDE WOLVES, AND SHEEP AND MAN?”
“SO, UNTIL I SEE YOU AGAIN, DON’T FORGET THAT YOU ARE: ONE OR THE OTHER, SO, GOOD NIGHT.”

UPON AWAKENING ONE MORNING,
A MAN WHO’D BEEN URGED TO ANALYZE SUCH MATTERS, (BUT NEVER HAD),
FINALLY SAID TO HIMSELF: “DREAMS DO SEEM SYMBOLIC….BUT SO DO MY THOUGHTS … AND I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY MEAN!
94067- 7
ONCE UPON A TIME
A MYSTIC STARTED HIS OWN DAILY PAPER, BUT HE ONLY PRINTED NEWS OF TOMORROW,
CAN YOU SPELL ‘FAILED’ WITH A CAPITAL F?
ON THE NIGHT BEFORE ALL MAJOR BATTLES,
THIS ONE WARRIOR WOULD PRIME HIMSELF WITH ONION-&-KRAUT SANDWICHES,
SOME YEARS LATER, HE PROVED A RIOT IN SEMINARY SCHOOL
WITH HIS SPECIAL BRAND OF PREP FOR EXAMS.
94067- 9
AFTER PONDERING THE SPEED OF HIS OWN INTELLECTUAL OPERATIONS, ONE MAN THOUGHT: “IF WE ARE ALL PART OF THE, ‘HUMAN RACE’
THEN MY MIND’S BEEN RUNNING UNDER A YELLOW FLAG.”
FROM, (HOWEVER), A WIDER VIEW
IT IS NOT SIMPLY A MATTER OF “MILES-PER-HOUR”,
BUT OF HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS, FUEL EFFICIENCY,
AND ULTIMATELY OF BEING ABLE TO PULL YOURSELF AWAY FROM THE TRACK, AND EVEN ABANDONING THE RACING CIRCUIT’ ALTOGETHER.

THE DENSER YOU ARE, THE EASIER IT IS TO BELIEVE —
YET ON ANOTHER LEVEL, THE DENSER YOU ARE THE HARDER IT IS TO BELIEVE,
“FOURTH FLOOR — HOME FURNISHINGS, AND EXTREMELY PERSONAL ITEMS.”

ONE GUY THOUGHT:
“IF I COULD JUST STOP MY MIND FROM BITCHIN’ AND COMPLAININ’, I COULD GET SOME WHERE.”,
AND HIS MIND JUST LAUGHED: “WHERE HAVE YOU GOT TO GO!?”, WHICH WAS A VALID COMMENT, IN THAT THE GUY WASN’T A MYSTIC.
WHICH IS WORSE: WANTING TO GO SOME PARTICULAR PLACE BUT CAN’T GET THERE, OR, NOT WANTING TO GO ANY WHERE IN PARTICULAR?
ONLY THE MORE INSIGHTFUL CAN ANSWER THAT.
COSMIC EXPLOSIONS CREATE NEW SOLAR SYSTEMS IN SPACE, COSMIC EXPLOSIONS CREATE NEW REALITIES IN NEURONS.

IF YOU LET-YOUR.MIND WANDER IN THE MANNER NATURAL-T0 IT, T WILL ALWAYS BE DRAWN TO AREAS WHERE THE HERDS GATHER
94067-13
AFTER LOOKING AROUND AT LIFE FOR A WHILE, A KID FINALLY ASKED HIS OLD MAN: “IF EVERYONE IS DOING, ‘THE BEST THAT THEY CAN’
THEN WHY CAN’T PEOPLE, ‘DO BETTER’!?”,
To WHICH HIS FATHER REPLIED: “THAT’S PRECISELY THE POINT!”
Hup!, 2,3,4, Hue!, 2,3,4,
HUP HUP HUP HUP HUP HUP HUP HUP HUP!
IF SOMEONE HOLDS YOU UP ABOVE THEIR HEAD, WILL YOU BE ABLE TO SEE THE PARADE BETTER?
THE ORDINARY BELIEVE SO,
BUT THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT NOTION FROM A MYSTIC AS TO WHO THIS “SOMEBODY” MIGHT BE.

94067-14
AN EXPANDED VERSION OF A CREATION MYTH COVERED EARLIER THIS YEAR TELLS WHAT WHEN LIFE LOOKS EACH PERSON DEAD-IN-THE-EYE THAT ONE, BRIEF TIME,
AND WHEN MOST MEN BLINK AND LOOK AWAY,
THIS CAUSES THEM TO GO FORTH IN LIFE FROM THEN ON,
ALWAYS SLIGHTLY PISSED AND EMBARRASSED.
94067-15
THE CONTINUAL RE-COUNTING OF, “WHAT KINDA GUY YOU ARE”
HELPS, IN PART, TO KEEP FROM HAVING TO ACTUALLY BE SOME PARTICULAR KINDA GUY.

ONE WAY YOU CAN DISTINGUISH SHEEP FROM COWS IS THAT
SHEEP LIKE TO RECOUNT’THEIR TROUBLES AS THEY OCCURED TO THE HERD AS A WHOLE, WHILE COWS PREFER EMPLOYING PERSONAL ANECDOTES TO EVIDENCE THE HEART BREAK OF BEING BOVINE.
BE CAREFUL OF YOUR USE OF THIS METHOD IN THE FIELD SO AS NOT TO ENSNARE HOMO SAPIENS IN ITS REACH
94067-17
AFTER SOME STUDY ON THE MATTER, ONE MAN SO MUSED:
“EVEN IF IT IS PROBLEMATIC THAT WE PHYSICALLY BECOME, ‘WHAT WE EAT’, OUR ROUTINE CONSUMPTIONS HAVE A POTENTIALLY EVEN GREATER IMPACT.”
ONCE YOU UNDERSTAND THAT,
YOU UNDERSTAND MORE ABOUT A LOT OF THINGS THAT MANY PHILOSOPHERS SI-MYSTICS HAVE TALKED ABOUT THAN DID THOSE WHO DID THE-TALKIN ABOUT THE THINGS.

THOSE WHO DON’T KNOW THE SECRET ALWAYS THINK IT’S MORE COMPLICATED THAN IT ACTUALLY IS,
WHILE THOSE WHO REALLY DON’T KNOW THINK IT’S SIMPLER.

VIEWER’S PROGRAM NOTE
IF YOU’RE STRUGGLING TO BE MORE CONSCIOUS.,
HARDLY ANYTHING IN LIFE SEEMS ALL THAT ENTERTAINING. — No OFFENSE TO LIFE — THAT’S JUST THE WAY IT IS. …(AND LIFE SAID IT TOOK NONE.)
OH YEAH —
YOU MIGHT NOTICE THAT I SAID HARDLY ANYTHING IN LIFE — NOT “LIFE” ITSELF.

ANOTHER MAXIM, MAXIMALLY EXPLAINED
“FEATHERS OF A BIRD, STICK TOGETHER.” FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT FEATHERS ARE WEAKER THAN BIRDS —
SAME AS PRIDES ARE WEAKER THAN A LION — A REAL LION! —
AND THE COLLECTIVE THINKING OF MAN IS INFERIOR TO THAT OF AN INDIVIDUAL — A TRUE INDIVIDUAL.

ONE MAN OFFERS THIS OBSERVATION:
“ALL MYSTICS ARE TRYING TO DO IS BE, ‘SUPER-CIVILIZED’ -AND THEY JUST WANT A FANCIER NAME FOR IT.”
94067-21
ACCORDING TO RUMOR, THERE IS A LEGEND ABOUT ONE PEOPLE’S CREATION MYTH THAT SAYS THEIR PARTICULAR GOD HAS, THROUGHOUT THE AGES,
ONLY SPOKEN TWENTY-NINE WORDS TO THEM,
THE FIRST ONES WERE: “LET THERE BE YOU GUYS.”, AND THE NEXT ONES WERE: “Now DON’T SCREW UP.”, FOLLOWED BY: “WELL — YOU DID IT!, DIDN’T YOU!? — A PDX-OF-SORTS UPON YOU! — Now GET OUTTA HERE.”.
AND THEN PASSED SEVERAL THOUSAND YEARS OF SILENCE AS HE WATCHED THEIR PROGRESS BROKEN ONLY RECENTLY BY THE MESSAGE: “OKAY ALREADY — LIGHTEN UP.”
94067-22
LIKE A PIG FALLING FROM A TREE — WHAM! — ONE DAY IT HIT THE GUY:
“IF WORDS ACTUALLY MEANT ANYTHING WE WOULDN’T HAVE METAPHOR AND ALLEGORY.”
THIS MADE HIM FEEL SOME BETTER…NOTWITHSTANDING THAT IT REVEALED HE’D WASTED THIRTY-EIGHTY YEARS OF HIS LIFE.

THINKER’S HEALTH CHECK
THE JUICES THAT RUN LIFE ARE CRITICAL AND SERIOUS.
…AND YOU BETTER WATCH IT! — THEY CAN SEEP INTO YOUR BRAIN!
ADDITIONAL NOTE: MYSTICS ARE THEIR OWN PLUMBER.

SPORTS!,– FOR THE MENTALLY ADROIT, ALL IDEAS ARE, “JUMP BALLS”.
94067-24
THE CLOSEST ORDINARY THINKING EVER GETS TO EXERCISE IS ARGUING & COMPLAINING.
94067-25
IN A SOLAR SYSTEM JUST NORTH OF HERE
THERE IS A FAIRY TALE THAT SAYS,
IF YOU HELP SOMEONE ELSE FIND THEIR WAY ALONG THE MYSTICAL PATH, THAT SOME DAY IN THE FUTURE, WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT IT,
THERE WILL COME A KNOCK ON YOUR DOOR,
AND THERE WILL STAND A TRAIL OF BREAD CRUMBS WHO’LL SAY: “OKAY, NOW WHAT!?”
“YOU SEE!?”, SAID A FATHER TO HIS SON,
“A MYSTIC DOESN’T FEAR, OR DREAD ANYBODY! — HE’S GOT HIMSELF.”
(“GEE, THANKS DAD.”)
94067-26
THE SAFE APPROACH
DON’T BELIEVE ANY THEORY.

94067-27
Two GUYS DISCUSSING LEGENDS
“I HEARD A LEGEND THAT SAID WHEN SOMEONE DISCOVERS WHAT’S ACTUALLY GOING ON, THEY LOSE ANY INTEREST IN TALKING ABOUT.”
“I HEARD A LEGEND THAT SAID THOSE WHO EVER GAIN SUCH A REALIZATION MUST TALK ABOUT IT.”
“I THINK I LIKE YOUR LEGEND BETTER,
“YEAH, ME TOO.”
I DO RESIST ADDING AN EDITORIAL COMMENT TO EVERY ITEM READ ON THE SHOW, BUT I MUST SAY THAT IT SEEMS LIKE WE COULD FIND A BETTER CLASS OF GUYS TO QUOTE ON SUCH MATTERS.

THE CAPTAIN OF THE ALIEN SPACE STATION RADIOED WORD TO THE EXPLORER HE’D SENT DOWN TO INVESTIGATE THE PLANET:
“IF YOU’LL EVER QUIT BITCHIN’ YOU CAN COME BACK HOME.”

CLIFF’S NOTES FOR STUDENTS OF THE MYSTERY
IT ONLY TAKES ABOUT THIRTY SECONDS TO DESCRIBE WHAT’S ACTUALLY GOING ON, BUT GENERALLY A LIFE TIME TO HEAR IT.

AT THEIR TWENTIETH GARDEN REUNION,
AFTER A SUBSTANTIAL INTAKE OF ALCOHOL,
THE SNAKE THREW AN ARM AROUND ADAM AND TOLD HIM:
“You KNOW WHAT — I’M GONNA LET YOU IN ON A TEENIE LITTLE SECRET -IT DOESN’T REALLY MATTER MUCH IF YOU’RE ANGRY A LOT,
JUST AS LONG AS YOU DON’T LAY IT ON SOME BODY ELSE.”
94067-31
A CERTAIN MYSTIC, (OF THE TRULY, UN-RULY SORT), ONE DAY REALIZED:
“THE WORST THING ABOUT EVER, ‘SLOWING DOWN’ IS THAT LIFE WANTS YOU TO,”
94067-32
ONE MAN’S HEAD VOICE TOLD HIM: “BUT THE MIND WAS MADE TO BE CRITICAL!”, AND HE REPLIED: “I KNOW — THAT’S WHY I’M GOING TO KILL YOU!”
94067-33
WE ALL HEAR VOICES FROM OUTER SPACE,
BUT ONLY MYSTICS REALIZE THAT IT’S INNER SPACE.
94067 -44
TODAY’S: “KNOCK-KNOCK JOKE” FROM ANOTHER UNIVERSE
WHY DO YOU NEVER HEAR OF ANY HOMICIDES COMMITTED AGAINST MYSTICS BY THEIR STUDENTS?
ANSWER: BECAUSE ONCE THE “WOULD-BE’ERS” FINALLY REALIZE THE SECRET, THEY’RE SO SURPRISED!,
SO CHAGRINED,
SO EXCITED,
SO MAD, AND SO OVERJOYED THAT EVEN MURDER IS AN INADEQUATE REACTION.
94067-35
ONE MAN GOT SO SICK OF BEING ALIVE THAT HE DECIDED TO REALLY START LIVING.
