#1313 – 07/25:
Notes by TK

The unique human enthusiasm, based on sex energy, when lost is replaced by civilization-induced encouragement to improve; institutional enthusiasm. Would-be rock stars begin by collecting records, attending concerts: seekers join a religion.


The News

In their lives, men go through different stages — with most
it goes like this: They’re born, they live, they die. A few try
to add to that.

***

At the mental level, trying to “make sense” of the mind is
the same as trying to do so with the stomach.

***

The placard announced the speaker’s topic to be: “Language:
The Entry Way To Increased Knowledge. Language: The Cattle
Guard To Greater Understanding.”, and he didn’t even bother to
show up.

***

A man asked himself: “How far must one look to find the
connectedness of everything? How far is the mysterious from the
mundane? How far is the extraordinary from the everyday? And
how come all mystical monasteries are closed on Monday?”

***

The Street Level Justice-Of-It-All Re-Examined Again
Attila is never depressed, and St. Augustine never satisfied.

The first explorer to cross the new continent and look out upon
the fresh oceans on the other side thought to himself: “So
that’s why men’s brains have twin lobes.”

***

Today’s game is being played between the: “Let It All Hang
Out-ers” and the: “Let’s Be Calm And Reserved.” This, today’s
game, is played every damn day of the week, in case you haven’t
noticed, sir!

***

One man thought: “The travel’s been great, but how do you
handle the possibility that there’s only one new bus station
available in each life time!?” I’ll just bet that the answer to
that is the same as every other “Mystic’s reply” to impossible
questions.

In-Town Occultism Abruptly Explained
A “psychic in the know” can tell a lot about a person from their
handwriting. They can, for instance, tell if the person is
literate or not, if they are alive or not, and whether they can
pay for the reading or not. The truly sane bypass psychological
analysis & psychiatric assistance and go right to the source of
the — “what-EVER-they-think-it-is.” For some, the “cutting-out-
of-the-middle-man” is the elimination of the problem.

After a careful survey of civilization, one man thoughtfully
reflected thereon: “If, in that setting, we are all yet-groping,
all still growing, all partial-children, stumble-bums, boobs,
idiots, and one eyed men on unicycles! — then why should one
feel pride in being a ‘professional’ in such a context!?”

***

Prisons have bars, life has guilt, and all parades have a
marked route to follow.

***

This query entered one person’s mind: “Why is all of man’s
best loved drama, poetry and literature always about feelings —
and never thoughts?”

***

The more you strive, dogs to convert, the greater number of
fleas you host, and all your efforts to defend your position only
invite additional attack. I suppose this could be of
metaphorical interest to proselytes & philosophers, but a real
neural explorer would find herein, hints of actual, practical
value. But then again that’s always the distinction: Where the
simple see the literal, the more complex see myth, and where the
routine see allegory, the few discover “hands-on” instructions.
So, no wonder no one trusts a mystic.

From our department of: “My How Faster Time Has Learned To
Fly”, this item: “Popular Contemporary Quote Updated By City
Observer Reflecting Man’s General Lack Of Perseverance”, says he:
“Everyone should spend at least 15 minutes trying to be famous.”

Another Look At The Native Injustice Of Life
There’s info and encouragement all around you concerning how to
be dumber, cruder and less conscious, but where’s the other side
of the coin!? Another feature for just the “regular folks” in
our viewing audience.

The Mystical Adventure: Part 86
The younger make the more excited seekers, and the older, the
bigger fools. Somewhere in between, is where the right path
lies. ……..Oh, by the way, as poignant and pithy as that
sounded — it’s not true. The “right path” is where EVER you
find it — not where anyone says it is.

One man tried to send part of his brain to camp, but discovered
it was more efficient to send camp to that part of his brain.

City Info-Mercial News
Over there, people will pay to have you beat them up, and people
will pay for you to offer sympathy for their beating, but the one
thing they won’t pay for is to have someone explain this
situation to them.

But just think — if people weren’t smarter than horses, they’d
have no problems superior to the equestrian variety.

Moral: There is a purpose to all things — but all of the
purposes are all the same.

One father told his son: “‘Fairness’ is in not asking anyone
else to do anything that you wouldn’t do yourself,” and the lad’s
mind secretly replied: “Nay, ‘fairness’ would be in not asking
anyone else to do anything.”

***

Ask yourself this: Is there a difference between “thinking
about something” and being “conscious of it”? And to the quick
eye, the immediate and obvious answer is “Yes!”…..But then….
you begin to think about it.

***

The welfare of mankind as a whole is in part seen-to by the
spokespersons for his many common institutions. The sane should
lead the mundane, and the bland should direct the complacent. A
true explorer is — on his own.

From The Neophyte Physician’s Handbook
If you don’t make patients believe they’re sick they won’t accept
your prescription, and they won’t accept your prescription unless
it has a definite name. …(This is also a brief history of:
“The Visible Evolution Of The Human Thinking Machine.”)

A Neural Warrior’s Story
One day a certain knight had a severe shiver when he thought:
“What will happen if I ever quit finding life so ……funny!?”

…..Friendship is not charity — nor is the reverse so.
…..Not only do the ordinary whine too much, but at another
level, the mystically inclined are inclined to do so even more.
Yeah, you’re right! — That ain’t funny!

****

The reason that there are no satisfying answers to any of
man’s important questions is because there’s not supposed to be.
And a viewer pondered: “Is this anything like the man who used
to pass by the dam every day, and every day claim that it was
breaking!?”

***

A man who understands language can wrestle it to the ground,
and make it look really ridiculous — but language doesn’t care!
What the hell does it have to care about!? …Why don’t you take
a lesson from language!?

***

City Culture
Men read so that they won’t have to listen to the radio, men
listen to the radio so that they won’t have to watch tv, men
watch tv so that they won’t have to think, and some men think so
that they won’t have to read.
“Say,” injects one viewer, “How’d the term ‘some men’ slip in
there!?”
City culture — love it or hate it — it’s still your culture —
if you live in the city.

…..And for all of you first families and mainliners of the
outskirt’s hobo village, this item: The way you can definitely
spot a man who knows what’s really going on around here is that
he never tells anyone what’s really going on around here.

***

One man painted the inside of his skull with reflective
paint so that his brain would have something interesting to look
at.

***

The other name of civilization is, “predictability”; the
middle name of sanity is, “reliability,” and the real name of
every-day, low-level, 40 watt, just-barely-making-it-be
intelligence is, “dependability,” so guess where that leaves
expanded consciousness!? ……And see why it’s not called and
asked out more on Friday nights.

***

Yes, some mystics do live in caves, and some live in
monasteries, but far too many of them live in their head. See,
fish feel at home in the water, and birds feel comfortable in a
nest, so you can’t expect a heck of a lot more from the brain —
right off the bat.

An Un-Titled Item Related To God-Knows-What!
If you don’t dress up funny, or act funny — how’ll you know you
are one!?

***

From his office window, the president of the university
looked down on the day’s student demonstration and thought to
himself: “There’s nothing wrong with youthful idealism, but
wouldn’t it be something to be able to still act so after you
discover that there’s nothing to be idealistic about!?”

***

More Strange Medical Facts & Human Curios
Trying to think just inflamed one man’s mind worse than usual.

***

The ordinary believe in myths because it makes them feel
important; mystics like them because they want to be like them.

…..One man says he thinks that people who want to be mystics
just want to do so just so they won’t be so miserable.

***

After some considerable time of being bombarded by
nonstandard ideas, one man’s mind screamed: “I can’t take much
more of this!”, and the man replied: “Good! — that’s what I’ve
been waiting for!”

…..While unsaddling his steed one day, a certain neural knight
suddenly realized: “Life can change so quickly that there’s
really little need to take a trip.”, but only a man can properly
discover such who can make life change.”

***

In the city, anyone who professes to, “set you free” is
themself a captive, or else as big a fool as you for listening.

…..A man who can be more conscious never has anyone to blame
— but himself — and why would he ever do that!?

***

Only the unenlightened see a need for being humble, and only
the stupid feel a need to brag.
***

The speaker noted: “Men have tried to dance their way to
higher states of consciousness, they have tried to chant their
way there, and they have tried fasting their way, even eating
their way.” And someone asked: “So what is left!?” And he
replied: “What has ever been left!?” And thereby were a few
present struck with the reality of it.

***

After some study and experience in the area, one man decided
that instead of actually trying to become a mystic that he’d just
think-and-talk about it ’til he got sick of it. ……(Can work
every time.)

***

“The dull always envy the enthusiastic.” “Always?” “I said
always, dammit!”

***

Another Un-Titled Item, In Reference To Some Matter Unspecified
Literal religion is one interpretation of it.

***

In the privacy of his own symbolic workshop, one man
thought: “Thinking what you’ve already thought is the worst
possible form of incest.” …And, (as is becoming increasingly
clear to me), does encourage the predominance of weak, regressive
genes.”

***

Civilization knew it had it made when it realized people
would pay to hear other people talk.

Myth
There was once a great mystery that everyone sought, it lived in
a dark, hidden cave, then one day someone drug it out into the
light, and everyone lost interest it it.

And Now For Some: “Post-Myth Analysis”
“Well, tell me Bart, just what did they expect would happen!?”
“Gee, Kurt, that’s a tough one! — Back to you.”

***

At first it was: “I have become the kind of man who wants
to become a particular kind of man.” And then it was: “I have
become the kind of man I used to laugh at.” And then: “I have
become the kind of man I used to secretly admire.” And finally
it was: “I have become the kind of man I originally wanted to
be.”
