Notes by TK

Note that instruction is always prefaced by apology, disclaimer. This relates to disclaiming of authorship of creative, useful insightful info. There is a fear of being original, a hesitation to be seen as involved with the creative. Renunciation is a separation, absolute abandonment of the past. Men fear such separation from the known. The Mystic fears NOT to be original.

THE CONTINUED EVOLUTION OF MAN’S UPPER NERVOUS SYSTEM
IS SO PLAIN, DIRECT, POINT-BLANK, AND OBVIOUS THAT IT MUST BE OBSCURED, AND MADE DEBATABLE TO ORDINARY MINDS.
STEEPLE JACKS WOULD NEVER GO TO WORK IF THEY REALIZED THE FUTILITY OF HEIGHT,
A KID TOLD HIS FATHER: “THE DUMB DON’T LIKE TO BE MADE LIGHT OF.”, AND THE OLD MAN REPLIED: “THEN ALWAYS PICK OUT A FAT ONE.”
SECOND VERSE:
A FATHER TOLD HIS KID: “THE DUMB DON’T LIKE TO BE MADE FUN OF —
BUT THAT’S ALRIGHT, CAUSE,
THE TRULY DLIMB ARE TOO DUMB TO REALIZE YOU’RE DOIN’ IT — AND, IT DON’T MATTER NO HOW, SINCE IF YOU MAKE FUN OF THE DUMB,
YOU’RE DUMBER’AN THEY ARE ANYWAY.”
THIRD VERSE….THIRD VERSE!? — WELL,
IF YOU’RE DESPERATE AND DENSE ENOUGH TO NEED ONE — MAKE UP YOUR OWN.

THE WORLD OF THE MIND IS THE WORLD THAT CAN NEVER BE -AND IS YET THE ONE THAT CAN NEVER CEASE CLAIMING TO BE.
(LET’S SEE ANY OTHER CREATURE MATCH THAT!)

FABLE
LOCAL CONDITIONS SAID TO LIFE: “BUT MEN ARE DOING THE BEST THEY CAN!”, TO WHICH LIFE REPLIED: “NOT GOOD ENOUGH.”
* * *
ONE GUY SAID: “GUESS WHICH IS MY FAVORITE QUIZ SHOW AND YOU’LL WIN A PRIZE.”, AND THE SECOND GUY SAYS: “I DON’T KNOW. — WHICH?” AND THE FIRST GUY SAYS: “ME!”

, CONVERSATION IN A CAR
“DADDY, HOW CAN MEN BELIEVE THEY CAN ACTUALLY CHANGE, OR BE ORIGINAL?” “SON, WHEN ALL THE FISH ARE BLUE, PRO-GREEN STATEMENTS MEAN LITTLE.”
THEY RODE FOR A WHILE IN SILENCE, THEN THE BOY SPOKE AGAIN:
“DADDY, TALKING TO YOU IS OFTTIMES EVEN BETTER THAN TALKING TO MYSELF.” “I KNOW SON, THAT’S WHAT REAL FATHERS ARE FOR.”
IN QUIET, A FEW MORE MILES LAPSED, THEN AGAIN THE LAD ARTICULATED: “DADDY, WHAT HAVE MOST FATHERS DONE WITH THEIR BRAINS?”
“WELL SON, NOW YOU’VE HIT THE HEART OF THE QUESTION!
ARE FATHERS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PASSING OF INTELLECTUAL ENERGY
To THEIR HEIRS — OR,
WHEN WE SAY ‘FATHERS’ ARE WE IN TRUTH SPEAKING OF THE MIND OF THE YOUNG!?”
LIFE NORMALLY OFFERS AUTHORS THE CHOICE OF WRITING THE INTRO, OR DOING THE INDEX
ONLY SIMPLE MEN _STAY ON ONE-WAY STREETS,
AND THE SUPER SIMPLE, (KNOWN AS, SOPHISTICATED), ON TWO-WAYERS.
WHENEVER HE HATED IT, ONE MAN WOULD SAY: “I LOVE IT.”, AND WHEN HE UNDERSTOOD EVEN MORE — WOULD ONLY SMILE AND SAY NOTHING. * YIELD YIELD, AND TAKE YIELD.*

AN IN-TOWN PLAYING OF: A QUESTION & ANSWER GAME
QUESTION: WHY DO MEN HAVE HISTORY, AND EDUCATION?
ANSWER: SO THEY WON’T REALIZE HOW INCAPABLE OF ORIGINALITY THEY ARE,
QUESTION: WHY’D I HAVE TO ASK!?
THAT’S A RHETORICAL QUESTION, I ASSUME!?
HEY, I WAS GONNA SAY THAT!
YEAH, MAYBE IN ANOTHER LIFE,
THANK YOU CONTESTANTS,
YOU MAY RETURN TO YOUR SKULL NOW,
FIRST, MEN COULD SPIT -THEN THEY COULD SPEAK -NOW THEY CAN SPIT AGAIN,
ONE MAN CLAIMS THAT HE TAKES ALL OF THE IDEAS HE HAS RELATED TO ONE PARTICULAR SUBJECT AND PUTS THEM ON A SINGLE SHEET OF PAPER, THEN CUTS THEM LIP INTO SEPARATE PIECES; AND HE WAS ASKED: “Do YOU CALL THAT THINKING?” AND HE SAID:”NO.”, AND WAS ASKED: “Do YOU CALL IT ART?”, AND AGAIN HE REPLIED: “No —
I CALL IT A ‘RECIPE’.”

MORE UNRAVELING OF ACADEMIA IN THE CITY
DEFINITION: HISTORY: GOSSIP MADE ACCEPTABLE.

CONVERSATION OVERHEARD IN A PARK
“IF YOU COULD SEE YOUR MIND GROW WITH EXERCISE, SAME AS YOU CAN YOUR MUSCLES,
ATHLETES WOULD BECOME INTELLECTUALS,
“MORE THAN THAT, IF MEN COULD ACTUALLY SEE THEIR MINDS GROW THROUGH
SPECIFIC USE,
THE PARADE ITSELF WOULD MOVE FASTER.”
“YEAH-H-H,..,NOW THAT YOU PUT IT THAT WAY — I GUESS THAT EXPLAINS IT, RIGHT!?’
“YES, EXCEPT FOR THE FACT THAT YOU AND I CAN EVEN DISCUSS THE
POSSIBLE OTHERWISE. “
THE HIGHER UP SQUIRRELS CLIMB, THE LESS THEY REMEMBER OF EGYPT,
AFTER LIFE-TIMES OF SITTING BENEATH THE TREE, BUDDHA BEGAN TO INSIST:
“LET MY MIND GO! — FOR MY MIND IS MY PEOPLE, AND FROM THEM I WISH TO FLEE.”
“ATTENTIVE FORGETTING” IS ALMOST AS GOOD AS HAVING “NEVER KNOWN AT ALL” — WHICH IS A WISE MAN’S MENTAL FORM OF CAPTIVITY.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN: WEIRDNESS, AND REAL WEIRDNESS
ORDINARY PEOPLE CAN ENJOY JUST “WEIRDNESS”, CAUSE EVEN WHEN WEIRD, IT STILL MAKES SENSE —
BUT REAL WEIRDNESS’ WELL SIR! — NOW THAT’S ANOTHER MATTER ALTOGETHER! —
IT’S NOT ENJOYED BY ROUTINE MINDS CAUSE THEY NEVER ARE EVEN AWARE OF IT,
REAL MYSTICS DON’T HAVE TO HIDE —
THAT’S WHY THE FAKE ONES HAVE TO DRESS LIP AND ACT FUNNY TO GET NOTICED!
LIFE MADE ONE GUY “JUMPY” —
TI L HE GOT ENOUGH OF IT &.HE STARTED MAKING LIFE JUM’PY’.,

WHILST DISCUSSING THE RELATIVITY OF THE CONNECTING TISSUES,
THAT HOLD TOGETHER MAN’S SENSE OF REALITY, A FATHER SAID TO HIS SON:
“SHOULD YOU EVER MISTAKE A PYTHON FOR YOUR WACKER,
You HAVE EITHER DISCOVERED THE WORLD’S SMALLEST REPTILE CONSTRICTOR — OR,
YOU ARE THE WORLD’S MOST FAVORABLY ENDOWED,
I WOULD WANT YOU TO FURTHER NOTE A SIMILAR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WHAT YOUR MIND THINKS THAT IT KNOWS, AND WHAT IT BELIEVES ITSELF IGNORANT OF,
ONE GUY ASKED ANOTHER GUY:
“HAVE YOU NOTICED THAT ALL CRITICISM ALWAYS COMES AFTER THE FACT OF
WHATEVER IT IS BEING CRITICIZED!?”,
AND THE OTHER GUY PUT SCRATCHING, PONDERING FINGER TO TEMPLE AND THOUGHT: “THAT WOULD EXPLAIN THE LOW PRICE OF CRITICISM —
IT BEING AT LEAST A DAY OLD, AND WHAT..”

IF YOU ROLL A BALL AROUND IN YOUR HAND LONG ENOUGH
YOU’LL BEGIN TO SEE SPOTS YOU’VE ALREADY SEEN, BUT NOW DON’T RECOGNIZE, AND SEE NEW AREAS THAT YOU BELIEVE YOU’VE ALREADY SEEN,
As PROOF OF THIS, CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING,
NO ONE TAKES LIFE SERIOUSLY ENOUGH, BUT MYSTICS….AND THEY TAKE IT
Too SERIOUSLY.
OR TAKE ON THIS ONE:
ONLY ORDINARY PEOPLE TAKE LIFE SERIOUSLY ENOUGH….AND THEY END UP
TAKING THE WRONG PARTS THAT WAY,
OR BOUNCE THIS ONE AROUND:
IT MAY BE THAT LIFE TAKES MAN TOO SERIOUSLY — OR ELSE HE MISTAKENLY THINKS
IT DOES.
WHAT D’YA THINK” HEY, TOSS THAT THING OVER HERE FOR A MINUTE!

IF SHAKESPEAR HAD SUFFICIENT CLONES — EACH WITH A FULLY LOADED QUILL —
THEY’D EVENTUALLY ALL TURN INTO MONKEYS IF THERE’S ANY REAL JUSTICE
IN THE WORLD THE WORLD OF CLICHES, THAT IS,

HOW TO ABSOLUTELY DETERMINE THAT YOU ARE MENTALLY A NATIVE EARTHLING:
YOU WOULDN’T RECOGNIZE ORIGINALITY IF IT SET YOUR NOSE HAIRS ON FIRE

THE WORLD OF DICHOTOMIES IS UNIQUELY HUMAN
AND APPARENTLY EXISTS’ IN’ THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN:
THEORY & PRACTICE — CONCEPTION & EXECUTION;
BUT THAT IS NOT ALL THAT RESIDES THERE —
ALSO THERE.. IS A REAL MAN’S UNDERSTANDING,
AND ALSO ALL-AROUND/THERE — AND. ALL-BEYOND THERE AS WELL,
FIRST GUY SAYS: “EXAMPLE ME: ‘INTELLECTUAL-SOPHISTICATION-IN-ACTION’.”. AND SECOND REPLIES: “A FORCEFULLY DELIVERED CLICHE.”

THE SON OF AN ACTOR ONE DAY ASKED HIS FATHER:
“IS THERE A ‘SCRIPT’ TO LIFE?”, AND THE OLD MAN REPLIED:
“BETTER YET, ASK IF THERE IS A ‘DIRECTOR’.”, AND THE KID OBLIGED:
“IS THERE A DIRECTOR TO LIFE?”, ONLY TO :BE TOLD:
“BETTER YOU SHOULD ASK: ‘IS THERE A PRODUCER TO LIFE?'”,
SO THE KID ASKED THAT, AND RECEIVED THE RESPONSE:
“Do YOU WANNA CUT THROUGH THE OVERTURE CRAP AND GET RIGHT TO CONSIDERING THE
NORMALLY UNPROGRAMMED SIAMESE CONNECTION BETWEEN THE ACTORS AND THE AUDIENCE!?”
THIS IS WHY CITIES CANNOT BUILD THEIR MORE IMPORTANT INSTITUTIONS ON TWIN HILLS.
A CREATURE CIRCLING EARTH IN AN ALIEN SHIP LOOKED, PONDERED THEN THOUGHT: “IF I COULD DISASSEMBLE THEIR WORDS I COULD FREE SOME OF THE HORSIES FROM THE CAROUSEL.
BUT THEN”,(REFLECTED HE FURTHER), “WHERE WOULD THEY GO!?”
THIS IS WHY MYSTICS CAN’T USE MUCH HELP.
THE SIMPLE LOVE TO STAND TO THEIR FEET, AND VIGOROUSLY NOD THEIR AGREEMENT TO WHATEVER IS FORCEFULLY SAID.

ALL CONFESSION IS A WHINE IN DISGUISE.

PUBLIC NOTICE: IF YOU DON’T THINK ABOUT ATTENTION YOU’LL NEVER CONTROL ATTENTION
PUBLIC NOTICE #2: IF YOU ONLY THINK WHAT YOUR MIND NATURALLY WANTS TO THINK YOU’LL ALWAYS BELIEVE THAT’S YOU ACTUALLY DOING THE THINKING,
FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE: DON’T BE A JERK!
* * *
ONE MAN PASSED UP THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE AN ACTOR,
EXPLAINING THAT IT WAS ALREADY HARD ENOUGH “PRETENDING TO BE HIMSELF” WITH OUT HAVING TO PRETEND BEING HIMSELF PRETENDING TO BE SOMEBODY ELSE.
ABSOLUTELY FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE: WE’RE STILL TALKING, “MIND” HERE FOLKS.
* * *
ENTERTAINING, SELF-FULFILLMENT: THE SIMPLER THE MIND, THE MORE DOES THE PERSON WISH TO BE TAKEN “SERIOUSLY”.

CONVERSATION IN A FOREST BETWEEN A LION CUB AND HIS FATHER
“PAPA, WHY CAN YOU SAY THINGS ABOUT HUMAN LIVES THAT ARE FUNNY, BUT NOT ABOUT OURS?”
“SHUT UP AND EAT YOUR GAME WARDEN BEFORE HE GETS COLD.”
THE MYSTICAL TURNS INTO RITUAL AT THE SAME PLACE UNDERSTANDING TURNS INTO ATTEMPTED INSTRUCTION,
SPOTTER’S GUIDE
YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL THE SWEDISH, YOU CAN ALWAYS TELL THE DUTCH, YOU CAN SOME TIMES TELL A MYSTIC, BUT YOU CAN’T TELL HIM MUCH.
….(OR ELSE — HE AIN’T ACTUALLY NO MYSTIC.)
