Summary

#1323 – 08/17:
Notes by TK

Condemnation is the attempt of the older part of the brain to return the younger part to its original life-fixed awareness of the collective. The Mystic cannot respond to condemnation. To destroy a civilization’s history frees it to grow (or perish). A Mystic must destroy his own history.


The News

Local conditions told a guy: “There’s no way a man can
think independently.” And the guy responded: “Maybe, but
there’s no way I can stop trying.” ** One man, charged with the
urge for originality, changed his name to, Art Culminating.

Combination: Creation Myth & Cooking Tip
In that brief, initial moment wherein life looks everyone
dead in the eye, those who blink and look away have their eyes
glazed over like a dish of candied yams.

Local Maxim Update
Blessed are the dazed — for they can see real-l-l
good…right up close!

Now For A Handyman’s Health Feature Entitled:
“It’s All According To Where You Live At”:
A man with “psychological problems” is a dead man, while a
man with brain malfunctions can make some home improvements.

***

The gun fighter told his son: “I’m gonna level with you
kid, if you don’t shoot the past in the foot — it’ll shoot you.”
And his freshly deceased neural progenitors added: “Words indeed
to live by.”

***

Taking a cue from external crime legislation, one man told
his mind that he’d passed a law concerning the frequency
with which it might think the same thought, and said he called it:
“Two times, and you’re redundant.” ** It seems that one chap
has attempted to explain his bloated mental condition by saying
that it’s actually a matter of unwanted “water retention.”
…(Though he didn’t ask me, I’d say that’s a dangerous
exculpatory path on which to embark.)

***

From line 27, 4th paragraph of the city’s warranty: “Man
invented the idea of the supernatural to help scare himself into
being civilized.”

***

After studying the distinctions between man’s physical life
and his mental one, one kid asked his father: “How come in the
latter category you can have imitations of things that serve just
as well as the things they imitate!?” …Yeah! — let’s see the
stomach answer that one!

***

The Radical Math Of It
Men cannot do dumb things — the dumbness comes in taking
what they do do — seriously! ** …(And Vido The Wonder Possum
muttered: “You should’a knowed that.”)

***

One man’s latest peek-in on life is that many of those
seriously enamored of drugs originally wanted to be mystics, but
just weakened…took the easy way out…or (if you prefer) bowed
to apparent efficiency. ** Moral: It’s hard to explain the
unnecessary things men do, but easy to condemn them. ** P.S.:
You might care to ponder the fact that an ordinary man hearing
this would find it to be a “Moral” sans morality, and without a
point — which (you might further note) simple reinforces my
original one.

As they walked along the highway, a father said to his son:
“When a horn blows, or a voice cries out, there is a difference
between not looking around because you’re in a daze, and not
looking around because you don’t care to look around.” And the
lad replied: “But isn’t that the case with everything men do!?”
…And the old man: Hit him in the head, slapped him in the
spleen, and, kicked him in the clavicle, for no other reason than
the irrepressible exuberance of celebrating Alliteration Day.

***

…Then after some further reflection on the matter, that
particular man thought: “So — if awareness is my hand, and
attention is my fist, then life keeps trying to tickle me under
the arm.”

***

Insofar as extraordinary. personally useful information for
cows goes — those things discussed publicly are no more than
reports on fluctuations in stock prices. ** Manual dexterity
said to his verbal counterpart: “Though I can turn a screw, what
you can do with a phrase is simply astounding.” …And oral
agility reacted: “I believe, ‘delightful’ would be more apt.”

***

A viewer writes: “Dear New Intelligence: I particularly
enjoyed a story from an earlier show which mentioned one man’s
personal motto of: ‘Many are dumb, but few are chosen,’ for now,
every time my phone doesn’t ring I am just a wee bit encouraged.
Thanks for the help, Yours,” etc.
***

And Now Yet: Another Way You Can Tell
The difference between a mystic and everybody else is that
they can’t ever get started, and he can’t ever stop.

***

Local conditions cautioned one group of growing little city
nippers: “Now education is a good thing — but, remember this:
The more a man actually thinks — and, knows, the more likely he
is to eventually come down with a severe case of being seriously
pissed.” ** “Ooo!,” cried the little ones in mock horror “Ooo!”
For what do they know!?

***

And lo! — from on high came a mighty voice that demanded:
“Now repeat after me: Life is serious! — Life is serious!” And
lo — the lowly little creatures had no friggin’ choice —
…well…’cept for a few who were hiding over behind a sticky
bush. ** Now that many cities won’t let you keep swine and
other farm animals, stupidity will ofttimes lay under your bed,
or hide in your closets. Life allows enough run-of-the-mill
smart asses to slip through the gate to keep the mass of the
bourgeois herd sufficiently entertained, annoyed, and distracted
so’s not to wander too far from home. ** Moral: Cows have
brains so that men can look at them and say: “Jeeze! — I’ve got
bigger brains than that!”

***

Only ordinary consciousness distinguishes between “in here”
& “out there.” …(Of course that’s part of its job.)

***

With the sane — the body is always alert, while the mind is
just “sufficiently so.” This leaves a lot-t-t of room for a
rebel to play in! ** A viewer writes: “How come I can’t
understand what you’re talking about!? — And please don’t
actually respond lest I feel even dumber. Yours,” etc. ** When
writing the show, always put: “To The Attention Of Attention.”

***

One man says he’s come to the serious suspicion that those
people in history worth knowing something about personally,
probably didn’t have anything personal worth knowing about.

***

At the survival level, crime is serious business — at the
civilized — mere entertainment.
***

How To Measure Mental Perception
Only the ugly are offended by the offer of an “ugly
inoculation.” ** Many neural cities aren’t big enough for both
a mystic and a gun fighter — …or a philosopher…or a money
lender…or anything else.

***

And now this “Special Feature” for the especially dumb in
our audience:

…Well!?…Do you want me to repeat it!?…

***

Academic Definitions
Current Events: The cesspool of history stirred up once
again.

And Now Over To The Fine Arts Department For This
Compelling Myth:
During the fourth year of the war between the Zerons and the
Uthanians, the God Of Seriousness appeared over the battlefield
and declared: “He who ‘lives-by-shit’ will die by shit.” …And
immediately! — every warrior with even a part of his mind still
intact cried out: “I knew that! — I swear to god — I knew
that.” …(And off behind the dunes the possums lay and smiled:
“Yeah! — right!”)

***

Control
Life will control you either through your brain, or through
your stomach. …And, oh yeah: It’ll control both of them
through the stomach. ** Control: You just gotta love it!

***

Now over to our: “That’s The Way It Goes” Corner:
Those who don’t understand a lot, don’t even understand a
little. …(This is the feature previously known as:
“Justice Perfected — And Then Some.”

***

One kid asked his old man: “Why are dumb people always so
touchy?” And his father replied: “You ask the stupidest
questions!” And the lad said: “Hah! — you thought you’d get me
to react and whine at that.” And lo — proud of the sapling was
he.
***

A viewer raises this point: “Hey, wait a minute, you’re
making it all way too complicated. The way I see it is that:
Stomachs don’t fear death, and minds don’t get hungry. What
could be simpler and fairer than that!?” And speaking
officially on behalf of the, New Intelligence Network, I’d like
to say: “No comment.”

***

On a non-tangible level, neural explorers always cause
trouble, which is why physical rebels are treated so shabbily.

***

A father told a son: “If you feel hip quoting cliches, and
arguing other people’s ideas, you’ll make a fine cow or sheep,
but you’ll be no child of mine.” ** And a viewer writes: “Am I
just now beginning to catch on!? When you speak of a father and
a son, does the former refer to the older, established parts of
the mind, and the latter to the younger, still pliable areas?
It’s embarrassing to admit that it’s taken me this long, but
hey! — isn’t that what being a viewer is all about!?
Appreciatively Yours,” etc.

***

After giving life a good going over, one guy’s conclusion:
“Love the concept — hate the execution.”

***

You could ponder the distinction between awareness, and
attention through this rhetorical question: Which is more
important to your television viewing: Good reception, or good
programming?

***

For ordinary consciousness, the “un-real” is just as real as
the real.

***

One man (who’d been pursuing his own private plans) one day
thought: “I’m coming apart as fast as I can put myself back
together — well at least thank god for that!” And before an
allegorical viewer could write in to complain about, or question
this one, the “Moral” of it flashed on their screen (to wit):
“Viewers Don’t Know Shit.” ** One man’s mind told his would-be
‘performer-consciousness,’ “Once you get your own show, you can
have your own viewers.”
