Law and biology as examples of endless complexity, lack of finality. Law: every loophole provokes more laws. Biology: every new virus spawns new antibodies in protection. It is all Life growing and can’t be stopped.

THE FABULIST’S NEURAL HISTORY OF MAN
AT FIRST THERE WAS ONLY LIGHTNING,- THEN CAME THUNDER,
WHO, FOR THE FIRST TIME, MADE LIGHTNING AWARE OF ITS OWN EXISTENCE,– THEN,(IN A HARD TO-EXPLAIN MANNER), LIGHTNING’S ORIGINAL EXISTENCE WAS DIMINISHED,
AND ALL NORMAL MINDS WITHIN HEAPING DISTANCE SAID:
“WE DON’T GET IT! —
AND EVEN IF WE DID, WE WOULDN’T LIKE IT! —
AND EVEN IF WE DID GET IT, (AND THUS DIDN’T LIKE IT),
WE WOULDN’T BELIEVE IT ….SINCE WE’D BE CERTAIN YOU JUST MADE IT UP!”
AS LAO LEFT THE HOUSE HE TOLD THEM NOT TO WAIT UP ON HIM….AND THEY DIDN’T.

IT’ S EASY TO FOOL THE MORE-CONSCIOUS ‘CAUSE THEY DON’T CARE I YOU FOOL THEM,
* * *
THE HOLY GRAIL
DOESN’T RAIL,
OR ACT AT ALL PUSHY.
WHY DON’T YOU TAKE THOSE TWO AND USE THEM ON YOUR THINKING.
* * *
AS SOON AS ADAM COULD SPEAK, GOD CUT HIS TONGUE OUT.

EVERYONE’S INTELLIGENCE IS INHERITED — A MYSTIC ABANDONS HIS LEGACY.

A MAN ONCE CAUGHT MOSES ALONE AND ASKED HIM:
“ON THIS EXTRAORDINARY EXPEDITION,
How CAN ONE BE ASSURED OF BECOMING A MASTER AND NOT MERELY A FOLLOWER?”, AND THE DESERT MYSTIC REPLIED: “NEVER READ ANYTHING ANYONE HAS WRITTEN,”, AND THE MAN SAID: “BUT I ALREADY HAVE.”,
SO MOSES ADDED: “THEN NEVER LISTEN TO ANYTHING ANYONE HAS SAID.”, “BUT I’VE ALREADY DONE THAT TOO.”, THE MAN RESPONDED,
MOSES GLANCED DOWN AT HIS WATCH AND SAID: “I GOTTA GO.”
WHEREVER THERE IS TIME, THERE IS THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING LATE — WHENEVER THERE IS THOUGHT, GREATER NEURAL POSSIBILITIES ARE PRECLUDED.

A MAN DREAMED THAT HE FOUND THE SPECIAL DOCTOR HE LONGED FOR, AND TOLD HIM: “I HAVE THIS SORE SPOT.”,
AND THE DOCTOR SAID: “TELL ME MORE ABOUT IT.”,
AND THE MAN SUDDENLY AWOKE AND SAID: “YOU’RE NOT THE REAL DOCTOR!”
94123-6
UPON HAVING THE ALARM CLOCK AWAKEN HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF ONE, A MAN THOUGHT: “THE GREAT THING ABOUT DREAMS IS THAT YOU DON’T HAVE TO GO BACK AND RESOLVE, OR CONCLUDE THEM.
….HUMMM,”, HE FURTHER REFLECTED, “NOT THAT MUCH UNLIKE OUR NORMAL THINKING.”
A man said to a mystic:
“I have studied the words of all the great past masters,
And as much as I received from them, I must say that
Your present descriptions by far surpass any that have come before!”
The mystic replied, “Since we are standing here alive, talking about it -Look at it like this: If that were not so,
I wouldn’t be a mystic, now would I!?”

94123-7
AFTER ONE OF THOSE EVERYDAY, INAPPROPRIATE INCIDENTS,
A GUY, IN A WHIMSICALLY APOLOGETIC MANNER SAID TO HIS GIRLFRIEND:
“WHAT DID YOU EVER DO IN-A PAST LIFE TO DESERVE ENDING UP WITH THE LIKES OF ME!?”, — AND IMMEDIATELY THOUGHT:”HELL, WHAT DID I EVER”DO!?”
As SOON AS ADAM COULD WALK, GOD BUSTED HIS KNEE CAPS,
94123-8
LOCAL CONDITIONS CONTINUALLY ADJUSTING ITSELF IS MAN LIVING AND DYING — LIFE CONTINUALLY ADJUSTING ITSELF IS MAN THINKING AND RE-THINKING.
94123-9
A CERTAIN MAN WHO’D TRIED FOR MANY YEARS TO FOLLOW VARIOUS
MYSTICAL TRADITIONS & DISCIPLINES
FINALLY SUMMED UP HIS VIEW OF THE WHOLE AFFAIR IN THESE WORDS:
“ALL IT IS IS: Go OUT OF TOWN —
COME BACK —
GO OUT OF TOWN AGAIN -COME BACK HOME AGAIN —
THEN GO BACK OUT OF TOWN AGAIN — AND LIKE THAT.”
NOTE: OUR “INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY” HAS BEEN CANCELLED.
94123-10
ANY OPINION -AND ALL KNOWLEDGE
IS INFERIOR TO UNDERSTANDING.
AND SOMEONE ASKED MUHAMMAD:
“IS THAT, ‘ANY OPINION’, AND, ‘ALL KNOWLEDGE’ SPELLED, ‘A-N-Y’, &, ‘A-L-L’?”, AND HE REPLIED: “YEP.”
94123-11
THERE WAS ONCE A MAN WHO LIKED TO SING,
AND CAME TO.FEEL THAT HE’D DERIVE THE FULLEST POSSIBLE PLEASURE ONLY IF HE SANG ONLY SONGS THAT HE’D COMPOSED. —
HE CONCURRENTLY SUSPECTED THAT BY PERFORMING ONLY HIS OWN WORK THAT HE’ WAS ASSURING HIMSELF OF A LIMITED AUDIENCE AND SUCCESS.
BUT FOR A REAL SINGER — HIS OWN REWARD IS THE ONLY REWARD
CONSCIOUSNESS SINGS.

AND A MAN ASKED CONFUCIUS:
“IS THIS THE REASON SCIENCE’LL NEVER DISCOVERY THE ‘ULTIMATE ANSWER’!?”, AND THE OLD ONE HELD UP A PHOTOGRAPH SHOWING SNOW FALL’S LACK OF PARENTS.
94123-16
EVERYONE CAN EXCUSE WHAT THEY’VE DONE,
A FEW EVEN ATTEMPT TO”EXPLAIN WHAT THEY’VE DONE,
BUT ONLY THE ENLIGHTENED CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT’S HAPPENED.
94123-17
ADDRESSING THE QUESTION OF BEHAVIOR,
BEFORE THAT OF UNDERSTANDING,
IS THE NORMAL APPROACH,-
BUT WILL NOT GET YOU ANY WHERE IN THE SPAN OF ONE LIFE TIME,

THE TENSIONS AND UNCERTAINTIES MAN ASCRIBES UNIQUELY TO HIMSELF

BUDDHA’S GIRLFRIEND AND SHE REACHED OVER TO TURN OFF THE CLOCK RADIO.
AND FINALLY — TONIGHT’S DEFINITION:
TALKING ABOUT AWAKENING: SOMETHING YOU DO ‘TIL THE AWAKENIN’ COMES.
