BEFORE THERE WAS REALITY, THERE WAS LIFE,
AND BEFORE THE SECONDARY, THERE WAS THE PRIMARY,
AND BEFORE MEN QUESTIONED, THEY WERE CERTAIN, BUT,
THERE WAS NOTHING TO BE CERTAIN ABOUT,
ASSUME YOU SEE WHERE THIS LEAVES THE MYSTICALLY PERSUADED.
95020-2
THE UNSPOKEN MOTTO OF THE COMMON MAN:
“As LONG AS I CAN SPIT UP PHELM, I CAN THINK.”
* * *
WHEN A MAN DRIVES THE SAME ROUTE HOME EVERY DAY
HE SOON FORGETS THAT OTHERS EXIST —
AND WHEN A MAN REALIZES NOT, IMPORTANT SUCH ROUTES IN HIS OWN NERVOUS SYSTEM, HE’LL BE FOREVER DOOMED TO HIS OWN COMMON SUB-DIVISION.
* * *
A MAN WROTE THE SURPRISE DOCTOR:
“DEAD DOCTOR: I HAVE A VERY SERIOUS QUESTION I WANT ANSWERED, BUT PLEASE DON’T SURPRISE ME — OKAY,’ OKAY, HERE IT IS:
WHY IS SO MUCH OF WHAT IS PRESENTED AS MYSTICAL WISDOM
FRAUGHT WITH NEGATIVE, CONDEMNATORY COMMENTARY?”
AND THE DOCTOR REPLIED:
“SIR: HAVE YOU YET LOCATED A PLACE OUTSIDE OF ORDINARY LIFE WHEREIN SUCH EXTRA-ORDINARY ACTIVITY MIGHT TAKE PLACE!?”
….NELL, I GUESS THE WRITER WAS SAFE, NO SURPRISES THERE, WHAT!?)
95020-3
WHAT’S FURTHER APART THAN THE NORTH POLE AND ANTARCTICA? –
..’!ELL, I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING JUST AS FAR: MOST MENS’ SPEECH & UNDERSTANDING
95020-4
A MAN WITH A PRIVATE ELEVATOR THOUGHT: “IF IT’S FLOODING IN THE PENTHOUSE,
THEN WHAT’S TO BECOME OF THOSE DOWNSTAIRS??
BUT WAS SHOCKED BACK INTO SOMETHING RESEMBLING A PERSONAL REALITY WHEN HE FURTHER THOUGHT:
“BUT IT’S THOSE IN THE BASEMENT WHO CAUSE THE FLOODING UPSTAIRS!”
….(IF YOU DON’T HAVE YOUR OWN PRIVATE VERTICAL CONVEYANCE,
DON’T BOTHER TRYING TO MAKE ANY SENSE OUT OF THIS.)
95020-5
MEN REPLY ON HISTORY, SAME AS SHEEP DO GENETICS.
…OKAY, SO YOU CAUGHT ME! — THEY BOTH DO THE SAME, IT’S JUST THAT MEN AREN’T YET SMART ENOUGH TO KNOW IT.
95020-6
ON A 3-D PLANET IT’S ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO HAVE ANY FUTURISTIC ACTIVITY WITHOUT APPEARING TO BE MYSTERIOUS —
AND IN FACT, ON SUCH WORLDS, CREATURES INTERESTED IN SUCH
ARE LOATH TO PURSUE ONE THAT DOES NOT SO SEEM.
* * *
ACCORDING TO ONE LEGEND,
THERE HAVE BEEN MYSTICAL SCHOOL WHO,
TO TRY AND COMPENSATE FOR THIS,
WOULD ACCEPT ONLY THOSE OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE ALREADY BEEN
QUITE NICELY AND SUFFICIENTLY DISAPPOINTED AND WORN OUT BY LIFE SO AS TO
…I DON’T BELIEVE IT WOULD SERVE YOU WELL FOR ME TO TELL YOU THE REST OF IT — — JUST FORGET IT.
* * *
WELL, HERE’S ANOTHER LEGEND:
THERE IS TRANSCENDENTAL ACTIVITY THAT NEVER REACHES SPEED UNTIL THOSE INVOLVED PERSONALLY REALIZE THE INITIAL, UNAVOIDABLE ILLUSION OF IT BEING MYSTERIOUS.
* * *
95020-7
THE DOCTOR WHO EXAMINED YOU EARLIER SAYS HE DOESN’T BELIEVE THAT
HIS OBSERVATION HAD THE DESIRED EFFECT, SO HE’S RETURNED TO OFFER AGAIN HIS DIAGNOSIS OF THE HUMAN BRAIN, AFTER IT IS CALLED THE MIND:
“LIVERS ARE LIVERS AND SPLEENS ARE SPLEENS, BUT THIS IS THE STRANGEST CASE EVER SEEN.”
….(JUST ‘TWEEN YOU AND ME, I DON’T KNOW WHY ALL THE FUSS, FOR AFTER ALL, WHAT IS THE INTELLECT OF MAN IF NOT A;’.==ONE-OF A-KIND”!? —
….IN FACT, I GUESS IT IS ITS UNIQUENESS THAT MAKES PEOPLE ALWAYS WANT TO COMPARE IT TO SOMETHING ELSE.
….STILL I FEEL INCLINED TO MAKE NOTE THAT JUST BECAUSE SOMETHING IS SINGULAR IN CONCEPT DOESN’T MEAN IT MAY NECESSARILY BE SO — IN EXECUTION —
— THAT’S WHERE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CONVENTIONAL COGNITION OF
COLLECTIVE MAN, AND THAT OF THE MORE CONSCIOUS COMES INTO PLAY.)
* * *
THOSE WHO ATTEMPT TO PRAISE MAN BY SAYING:
“WE HAVE MORE IN COMMON THAN WE HAVE INDIVIDUALLY TO DISTINGUISH US.’ UNAWARES — CONDEMN HIM, INTELLECTUALLY.
* * *
95020-8
THE GRAND FAIRNESS OF LIFE
THOSE WHO DON’T WANNA KNOW NOTHING – WON’T,
95020-9
SARCASM: MAKE SHIFT IRONY,
IRONY: A SUBSTITUTE FOR HUMOR,
HUMOR: A STAND-IN FOR UNDERSTANDING,
UNDERSTANDING: HALF THE TITLE OF A 70’S HIT BY AL GREEN.
* * *
THE REASON HAND GESTURES REMAIN SO POPULAR AMONG MEN IS THAT THEY HELP TO HOLD DOWN THE POSSIBILITY OF SURPRISES,
* * *
“WE NOW RETURN TO PLAYING SONGS ONLY FROM THE TOP 40 So THAT EVERYONE WILL KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON,”
* * *
95020-10
THE NORMAL THINKING OF ORDINARY MAN PRODUCES REALITY FROM LIFE, NOISE FROM SILENCE,
LOCAL FROM UNIVERSAL,
You FROM ME,
You FROM YOU,
AND REALITY FROM LIFE,
BEING MORE ALERT
WAS AT ONE TIME THOUGHT TO REVERSE THIS PROCESS,
BUT WHAT IT ACTUALLY DOES IS TO SEND IT INTO HYPEP-REALITY VIA HEIGHTENED PERCEPTION.

LIFE ON JUNGLE EARTH
THE SIMPLE RUN WITH JACKALS — THE COMPLEX SOAR WITH EAGLES.

AFTER BEING SOME YEARS IN METAGNOSTIC THERAPY

ONE MAN’S MIND SAID: “OH, I DO SO LOVE A GOOD PUZZLE, ESPECIALLY WHEN IT’S REFLECTIVE OF ME.”,
SO THE MAN POURED SOME HOT MERCURY DOWN ITS PANTS.
95020-1
IF YOU “CAME UP THROUGH THE RANKS”
IT’S PROOF OF ONE THING – NO, TWO THINGS: THAT YOU WERE BORN,

LIFE: AS IT IS — AND AS IT IS, OTHERWISE
AT FIRST LIFE CREATED LIFE, THEN IT CREATED MAN,
LI 1 ” J WILY,
THEN MAN’S MIND CREATED REALITY AS ITS CONCEPT OF WHAT LIFE REALLY IS.
* * *
WHEN A MAN’S CONSCIOUSNESS & UNDERSTANDING EXPANDS, IT DOES SO IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY,
WITH NO CONSIDERATIONS OF TIME, SPACE OR DIRECTION.
THUS IS HIS CONCEPTION OF REALITY – RE-DEFINED, NOW WITH NO CONSTRICTING DEFINITIONS.
* * *

WELL, THERE’RE TWO WAYS:
FIRST, YOU CAN LOOK AT THE TRACKS,
AND SECOND, YOU CAN EXAMINE HOW THE VARIOUS CARS ARE CONNECTED TOGETHER. …OF COURSE, AS ALWAYS, FOR THOSE OF GREATER EXPECTATIONS & VISTAS THERE IS THE METHOD OF BOMBING & BLOWING UP WHATEVER IT IS

95020-27
EVERYONE WANTS TO BE MENTALLY PROTECTED — EXCEPT THOSE MORE-CONSCIOUS, — THEY HAVE NOTHING TO BE PROTECTED FROM.
